The Feud
A few miles outside of a farming village, the PCs see the road blocked by a small crowd. At the center of the crowd are two old men, farmers by the look of them, furiously shouting at each other. If the PCs inquire, someone in the crowd will explain that it's Old Man Cheras and Papa Ghel, the patriarchs of two large farming families that go back generations. A feud between the families also goes back a ways. Most have forgotten it, but when Old Man Cheras saw a Ghel shepherd treading on his land, he went berserk. Now the two elderly gentlemen are close to duking it out in the center of the main highway. Perhaps the PCs could negotiate peace between them--or side with one and end the feud by force. Or they could just move around them. Go to Comment

I saw something that reminded me of old K'ton and looked up this gem. The world needs more of the Hegemony.

Really great archetypes. I like that you've drawn from history, but instead of lifting wholesale wizards we're familiar with, you've molded famous personages into unique mages. Well done. Go to Comment

30 Priests
NPCs  (Extras)   (Religious)
Dozus's comment on 2013-03-20 01:42 PM
I think the trick is to remember that priests are people, too. To make them one dimensional - purely good, or evil, or what have you - is to weaken their character too much.

I post this with full realization that my 30 is essentially a list of one-dimensional characteristics, perhaps two. But I see these as archetypal seeds to plant a full-fledged character with flaws and virtues like anyone else.

I think any of these clergy have the potential to be good or bad. To wit: the Pardoner, though corrupt in his desires, can provide hope to the hopeless by appealing to the benefits of the afterlife. Maybe he even cuts his prices to peasants who have seen particularly bad times. Conversely, the Merciful might blindly protect some trickster criminal or worse, inadvertently providing his church's sanctuary to a villain and making capture by the PCs all the more difficult.

The Khufu
This life is simply preparation for the next. A large percentage of the kingdom's resources are dedicated to building an enormous monument and tomb for when this king eventually passes. He is a decent ruler, but his reign will not stand out in the minds of the people; he will be remembered only by his tomb.

The Cleopatra
In order to keep the kingdom free, this monarch is willing to do anything - and I do mean anything. She freely offers her body to powerful men in order that she too might gain influence. The common people, of course, know nothing of this, though the nobles are well aware and have mixed feelings on the matter.

The Constantine
The gods of old are pushed aside at the command of this newly-converted monotheistic king. As temples are torn down or rededicated to the new deity, many convert either out of reverent zeal or desire to save their rank in the kindgom. Other, however, stubbornly resist and outright ignore the king's will. Go to Comment

What can I say? I love the 30s. It's a great resource for whenever you need a variety of some background character. Fun to write, too. Great idea, Moon. Go to Comment

An excellent system. I like the creation story, reminds me of The Silmarillion in some ways, but is distinctly unique. A well thought out pantheon that covers pretty much everything to boot. Very good work. Go to Comment

Quite well written, good background. But it is rather cliche and, as Manfred mentioned, there doesn't appear to be a downside. It's good, but I think it could have been better. Go to Comment
