Ostromarka – yet more D&D

I started thinking of yet another D&D setting - this one is for my horror ideas, nominally. The idea was for Ostromarka to be the most distant, easterly outpost of the kingdom of Theudengard. Everything to the east, beyond Ostromark, is a blighted wasteland filled with demons and marauding orcs and probably a good few … Continue reading Ostromarka – yet more D&D

Samsara

I've been thinking more about my Immortal Emperor idea, and as I mentioned before, Cambria originally had elements of the Ghostwalk setting planned (but I realise now that I completely misunderstood at the time how that place worked). So now, I think I have an idea of how to pull them all together, and I'm … Continue reading Samsara

Social Contracts

I recently got to play Vampire: the Masquerade for the first time since 2011/12 and, at the end of the first session, I wasn't sure whether I wanted to continue playing or not. It was a fun game, and I enjoyed playing a Nosferatu for the first time, but I spent time over a few … Continue reading Social Contracts

Immortal Emperor

We were about to explore … Continue reading Immortal Emperor

Worlds still to visit

Today, I thought I'd post a little sequel to one from a while ago, this time looking forward to places to go instead of back to places I've been. Underdark – I've never played an Underdark game, though know the setting from Neverwinter Nights. I remember flicking my way through Out of the Abyss when … Continue reading Worlds still to visit

Back to the Endless Sea

This might be the last of my Endless Sea posts for now. I've more or less established all the facts I need to run a game, except for an adventure. I'd actually be happy to borrow a bit from FATE for that, and maybe have the players put their home port using the location building … Continue reading Back to the Endless Sea

More from Cambria

After thinking a bit more about the setting and checking for some of my old files, I realised most of my old notes were destroyed when an external hard drive failed, so now I have to start putting things back together and try and work out what went where and such. But since it's well … Continue reading More from Cambria
