Re: Campaign Settings

With a world map and a good time-line it would be doable. You could set it up like the old Known World setting where each person gets an area and writes a Gazetteer of some sort for their part of the world. It doesn't have to be anything elaborate just enough to go on.

Re: Campaign Settings

I am working on my own that takes inspiration from Arneson's original Blackmoor game and uses some of the ideas. Right now I am working some things out but will be sharing soon enough on both my blog and here.

Re: Review of BFRPG (May 31, 2014)

Hey all, This is the guy that wrote the review so I wanted to say thanks for the kind words. Second, I want to say that the 'issues' I had with the game say nothing against the game itself or the designers. They are more personal feelings about things and are easily houseruled as are many things in ...

Re: Clerics - Brainstorming

I have the draft started and am working on the history of the church at the moment. I am hoping I will have it finished up in a day or two.

Re: Clerics - Brainstorming

I got the idea of the mystics from reading this article while doing some other research. I knew I wanted to use this somewhere and the mystic branch was born from it. I liked the idea of a loosely organized church that was more free-form in their beliefs and seeking answers beyond the packaged answe...

Re: Clerics - Brainstorming

Thank you very much for your kind words, Shadowmane. I have some other ideas that I will share when I get time and I will also get a more in depth blog post started. Incidentally, your idea on saints are fairly close to mine. While I don't consider them demi-gods, I do see them as ascended mortals g...

Re: Clerics - Brainstorming

My campaign uses a monotheistic system very similar to what you have in the Church of Tah (Mine is the Church of Deus). Here are few ideas I have had that I hope help: Druids : Members of a sect started by a Saint Francis type priest who saw nature in need of protection and redemption from its falle...

Re: A Campaign Question

Basically, the blog would contain the frame story and the material I release about the setting. The game itself would be nothing but the setting material and the players would not have to worry about it. One of my players likes the idea as it plays off our love for alternate history fiction and pseu...
