Quick rules changes of the Ginnungagap

So, some quick changes and additions: Honour stat - because I feel like it will be important to the setting. I need to work on appropriate tests for it. It will definitely be important with dealing with gods...(Yeah, just going to leave that hook hanging there) Additional skills - Computer Use, Engineering, Navigate/Pilot (I haven't … Continue reading Quick rules changes of the Ginnungagap

Classes of the Ginnungagap

I've been reading around what other people have worked into sci-fi D&D rules around the internet, and I'll be pinching and tweaking and fiddling as I go. A good portion of what I'm working with comes from Fifth Age, though I'm going for a lasers and sorcery setting so there's the thorny issue of magic … Continue reading Classes of the Ginnungagap

Races of the Ginnungagap

So I've been having a little brainstorm today about the different races of the Ginnungagap that I would allow for players. I know it's a sci-fi setting, so why not Warforged/robots you ask? Well, they're in the setting. But they're the bad guys, agents of the Frost and Fire Giants (bigger robots). I changed up … Continue reading Races of the Ginnungagap

Parts of a City

Over the weekend, I had a non-digital day, turned off all my tech and only used my phone as a cooking timer when I made a very late dinner. I got a LOT of reading done. And I also did some brainstorming.   So, here's a few location ideas I listed for parts and places … Continue reading Parts of a City

City takeover

The other day, I ended up having a scroll through some old blog posts and one caught my eye that I'd completely forgotten about. Since I've written that post, new novels about that hinted-at history have begun rolling out, but I'm ignoring those until I get my hands on a copy!   Anyway, the point … Continue reading City takeover

More Ginnungagap

I completely forgot about the alternate factions I'd come up with so far!   So I've got the Iron Brotherhood, the Black Network, and the Combine Council. The Iron Brotherhood are mercenaries and warriors, sort of fill the role of the Order of the Gauntlet. But depending on the locality, they might be the local … Continue reading More Ginnungagap

Ginnungagap revisited

Since finishing my cyberpunk A-Z, I've been thinking back on other ideas that I've had rattling around for a few years, and went back to thinking about my sci-fi D&D setting with space vikings.   In the interim since me talking about it, it seems that a good few other people have been working on … Continue reading Ginnungagap revisited

Razir – a continuation

(This piece is part of a work in progress, a continuation of a piece I wrote in 2014, where I spent 20 minutes writing what I had brewed in my head so far. I've since wanted to go back and rewrite that piece, make it closer to how I want it to be. I probably … Continue reading Razir – a continuation

Redux! Worlds of the Ginnungagap

How soon is too soon for a retcon? NEVER! I was unhappy with the cosmology I'd created, so I've tweaked it a little bit, and it should be a better fit for how I want the game to be set up. I actually started writing this a couple of days after my last post, but … Continue reading Redux! Worlds of the Ginnungagap

Worlds of the Ginnungagap

Sköll - The star at the center of the system. Having knocked out system-wide communication on more than one occasion due to large solar flares, the word became a synonym for 'treachery', due to being both a life-giver and life-stealer. Midgard - Now home to all races, this world was once the sole domain of men, excepting … Continue reading Worlds of the Ginnungagap
