Re: Let me introduce myself: I am Magnus and I am writing the next expansion

Hi Magnus.

Can we expect new gear like skis, snowshoes, and dogsleds for improved movement over the terrain? How is this going to affect day/light cycles, will there be areas affected by seasonal periods where it never really gets dark/light? This could all be really fun stuff that you don't often seen in traditional fantasy settings.
Somewhere we will need new equipment. 

As for the light/day and stuff, I'm wrestling with that. It's important that I don't get caught up in making The Bitter Reach a climate simulation, but rather take on ideas like the one you suggest, to make it more "fantasy".

/M
since we only have the broad strokes about the world itself nothing says it needs to be a globe, having a sun god mad at the northern reaches so his power is lessened, or the world is on the back of a tortoise so the north is on a sharp curve away from the sun, or we're on a ring world and the cooling systems are working overtime, or it just is cold... so many possibilities so little time.

Hello again Magnus,

I want to remind you about the discussion of getting some Legend(s) about The Bitter Reach to us GMs to feed to the players when in Ravland. If not unneccesary with the Kickstarter around the corner It would still be a really great thing!
We'll get on that soon!

Thanks for the reminder, sometimes things slip from my mind. I sent some texts to Free League yesterday to be used with the Kickstarter, so you'll have some clues soon! And a legend or two before months end I think I can promise.

Cheers

/Magnus
That’s fantastic great news! Really looking forward to it.

I think it would be good to have a way for characters to change professions, or at least be able to buy other profession specific talents.

Yeah that would be a good thing. Might not be something that would fit in The Bitter Reach, but I'll take a note and ask the League.

Regards

Hello all! 

We are looking into getting two short legends done, which you can use to "tease" The Bitter Reach. The guys at Free League are at a huge book convention this weekend, so I'll get in their case again on monday!

Regards
