Reforged!

Wiki Update

Today’s wiki update is quick, and more of an upgrade! Obsidian Portal, the site that hosts our wikis, just went through a wicked update thanks to their Kickstarter campaign at the beginning of the summer. Every wiki is more mobile friendly, has some more customization options, and they’re slowly rolling out additional features as they get their code working. This has me really excited, not just because I love having websites, but because I like managing information about my game and encouraging people to participate. So even though it means a big reformat for me, I’m looking forward to overhauling it, and I thought I’d psych myself up by posting a couple of things that I want to do with my wiki.

The Tanril Agezar, Fingers of the Empty Hand

Wiki Update

Every fantasy world needs an assassin’s guild. Well, that’s not true, but spies, thieves, and killers do have a tendency to hang out together in fantasy worlds, and when they spend too much time together, they unionize. The conflict between the Tanril Agezar, or the Empty Hand, and the Camonna Tong is based on the same idea as the one between the Aecha Ostai and the TSR, though battlegrounds are completely different. Old blood versus new. That’s what Temir is about. Progress, change, and the collision of the ancient with the enterprising, and the Tanril are the ancients who inhabit the shadows. Read more

Setting Graffiti

Ancient Coin from Gamla archaeology site

Wiki Update

One of the things I love about settings is the little things. The facets of everyday life that often go ignored in the quest to have grand adventure and world-spanning stories. Fact is, you can have just as much of an adventure around a board game as you can with a plague of undead. There’s as much to learn from graffiti as ancient tomes. It’s all about how it plays on your values. Since I’m updating the Vale Tales wiki, I thought I’d add a bit of colour to the Nentir Vale.

Gebonneauvais

Lacrosse sticks

Wiki Update

It’s fun to invent things for other people’s settings, and when I do, I like to go big. That’s how there came to be a civilization of Eladrin long-removed from the Feywild squatting in the southern plains beyond the Vale. Gebonneauvais (Pronounced “jawbone-of-ass”) is a city of light, colour, and sports. Come with me on this journey.  Read more

Traveler

Wiki Update

Today’s wiki update is something I’ve wanted to do for a while. For years in D&D, I’ve been talking about Traveler, the card game that’s played across my setting, from pubs to courts. It’s been a passing reference, and people tend to assume it’s basically like poker. Which it sometimes is. Really, it’s an opportunity to add depth to the game world and explore some cultures’ values by looking at the rulesets they use.

Two Birds, One Stone

The Fell Court, by Howard Lyon

Wiki Update

Writing this late at night while I’m editing videos and escaping my Feed the Beast addiction. There’s a post coming about that at some point, I’m sure. Just got back from Ryan’s D&D game where we saved a city from a conspiracy of devil-worshippers. I need to write a character reflection, and I need a wiki update for today, because I was without internet all weekend. Exciting pieces of life. So two birds, one stone, and my first character reflection. I’m going to update HIS wiki. Here we go.
