Department 7

So, I've played a lot of games with Department 7 as a central focus. When d20 Modern was new, I ran a few different X-Files style games, with the players working for a mysterious Department 7. Sometimes they were a subsidiary of the FBI (I think they were some kind of "Frontline Division Department 7" … Continue reading Department 7

Dust – a seed of an idea

Well, for post 201 of this lovely blog, I'm at much of a loss for what to talk about. Last night, I started brainstorming a new setting that seems it's probably just a game of Numenera in a desert-y place. I'm calling it Dust at the moment. I've not had a chance to play Numenera … Continue reading Dust – a seed of an idea

Ginnungagap – Guns and Armour

Ok, so I've been thinking about this stuff for years, I must have come up with some ideas for it by now right? ... Hmmm.   Basic sidearms A typical sidearm, no fanciness. Many classes and backgrounds will open this proficiency to characters. Basic longarms Typical longarms/rifles, again, no fanciness. A few characters will start … Continue reading Ginnungagap – Guns and Armour

Ginnungagap – Classes Redux

Banor - Classes of the Ginnungagap Since I've written a races redux, why not a current look at the classes redux? This relies a lot on Xanathar's Guide / Unearthed Arcana stuff since it made sense to include a few things in the setting that wouldn't appear elsewhere. Here's what I have so far - … Continue reading Ginnungagap – Classes Redux

The Emerald Enclave, Harpers, Lord's Alliance, Order of the Gauntlet and Zhentarim work for Faerun, but I wanted to have the option for the Ginnungagap, so I thought about modifying the factions … Continue reading Factions in the Ginnungagap

Ginnungagap – The Nine Worlds

Midgard remained highly favoured by the gods, a capital of the Æsr Combine, even as they made their homes in Asgard. Ringed by the great Jormungandr, a living spaceport, Midgard is a trade hub and for centuries past was a staging point for raids on more distant inhabited systems. The Niddavalir asteroid ring, home to Dvergr and … Continue reading Ginnungagap – The Nine Worlds

Ginnungagap – Come from Afar

For countless millennia, the void of the Ginnungagap was without form, unshaped by life. Slowly at first, then in a rush, the great races of the gods filled the void and created the worlds of mortals. Travelling slowly from across the Ginnungagap, the gods Buri and Bor found the great sweeping ice cloud home of the … Continue reading Ginnungagap – Come from Afar
