Re: The race for Stanengist and the artefacts

So my player has acquired Stanengist very early on, which sets an interesting dynamic. Instead of actively questing for it, she's now in a kind of Bilbo Baggins situation, trying to keep it safe and secret, and also trying to understand what it is and what it can do. I've set up a Rust Brother as a...

Re: Whiners and hollow rock

Can I ask what you had in mind for the interaction between Oralda and the Whiners in the Vale of the Dead? . To me, the dwarves have an academic and religious interest in learning as much as possible about stone and stone building, while the whiners could be offered a secure place, guarded by somew...

Re: Whiners and hollow rock

I might add some sources of inspiration for the whiners' dwellings. Apart from wasps' and termites' building techniques, I also thought of swallows' nests, built from mud mud and saliva, and of course concrete, which has been used in our world since ancient times. A less obvious source of inspiratio...

Re: Shipbuilding and seafaring?

Has anyone made any rules on shipbuilding and sea exploration? I'm working on homebrew rules for my own setting and wondered not anyone else had tried anything? Or heard if anything official was coming? There will most likely be a seafaring expansion in the eastern sea archipelago eventually, but i...

Re: What is a Witch?

he word witch has been used in the setting for various female spell-casters (The Raven Sisters for example), so my personal take on this is that witch is a word that is sometimes used for any female spell-caster. . Also worth noting that Heme herself might be comparable to a witch according to the ...

Re: Running Weatherstone

In the original version, the undead were already awake upon arrival, and the adventurers were given a potion that made them look undead for a period of time in order to blend in. The undead all turned agressive only if your cover was blown or you did something to offend them and they sounded the ala...

Re: Do your games feel more grimdark or more gonzo?

Official adventure sites are very different from each other: some feel very grimdark, others a bit more gonzo. . This was quite intentional in Raven´s purge. I wanted different feels and types of challenges in the adventure sites. (This assuming ”gonzo” means twisted / crazy, which I'm not entirely...

Re: Haggler's House name?

Oooh you live in Uppsala? I intended to pay a visit there someday in the future, it looks beautiful :) . Since we're talking about names, what was your reasoning behind the title "Raven's Purge"? Before reading the campaign, I thought it had to do with the Reapenters' quest of purging the land, but...

Re: Haggler's House name?

I think your translation of 'hus' is a bit off. In contemporary Swedish it means house, but it used to have a broader meaning of ~fort which was applied to the whole settlement (for example Århus, Glimmingehus). So perhaps Cronesbury would be a good English translation? For now I've translated it i...

Re: Haggler's House name?

As a side note, the place is called Haggahus in swedish. The word ”Hagga” can roughly be translated to ”old woman”, ”crone” or even ”witch” and the word ”hus” translate to ”house”. So Hagglers house could be translated to something like ”the witch house” or ”house of the old crone”. Since the game ...
