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
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
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
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
(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
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
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
Well, I've bought myself a cheap USB keyboard and I can actually write these posts easily again!, so I've started pulling the various strands together, and tried to collate something that could actually play. The biggest issue that I currently have is that I'm really enjoying the setting and how it's forming, and whilst I have some … Continue reading More Space Viking Nonsense
I've been thinking a lot lately about a Viking-styled d&d game, and I've come up with a few ideas. However, since I've also been playing a lot of Mass Effect, been reading some of Marvel's Battle world stuff and thinking about the Thor Corps, AND partly inspired by the article over on the D&D website, … Continue reading Vikings… IN SPAAAAAACE!
I'm cheating a little bit with this last one. I have a couple of ideas for how to do Z but everything I've had a go with so far hasn't worked or made me want to write more than two lines. That's it, a full month of updates looking at elements of the Old Crown. … Continue reading Z is for: Zomg it’s finished!
