The only reason I wouldn't is that Wulfhere's Mirabilis is more a necromancer while the archetype Mirabilis of this 30 is the progenitor of the modern scientist. Similar name, some superficial resmblances, but underneath completely different ideals. Go to Comment

It doesn't seem to have been linked to anything to begin with, curious.

The references to historical personages are what sets this above a common 30.

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

I'll give yet another 4, to yet another 30, but I'll say again, these are getting addictive...Love the historical personages!

An excellent resource for not only mages guilds and training academy's, but helpful for  mercenary companies and the hired magical muscle some groups need to acquire form time to time.

Has a broken link under the Marcus Garvey, but other than that this is a very sound 30. Not so much a bag of stereotypes as a grab-bag of actual people. Very well done! Go to Comment

As stated, the references to actual mages paints in immediate picture in my mind for each archetype. Brilliantly done. I don't want to think how long this may have taken. I would only recommend that you not exclude The Trickster, The Loki. The Loki is a trickster mage who has emmense power but uses it only to manipulate and deceive for his own amusement or whim. The Loki is pretty much responsible for every bad thing that happens.

Hey that is my tail!

By using this system you can give a seasonal cyclic feel to the advancing of time. The GM can easily express the march of history and time in their campaign with this system, even on the smaller gaming scale.

Two paws up and the tail too. Go to Comment

I Cannot Fault this submission.

Rich and clearly well thought out.
This is particularly interesting to me as an almost passive effect in different roleplays in one world at different points in time. One roleplay may see a lot of storms and rains which would effect adventuring in the wilderness. another roleplay, 200 years later might see a country in that world in the grips of a large drought.
Anyway. Well done, two thumbs and Moonhunters' tail up *lifts Moonhunters tail*

1. Celestial Month of the Storm
Under the contellation of Dunsturmas, this is a tempestuous sidereal month that is known for its violent and unpredictable weather.

Astronomy - Dunsturmas is a small constellation of five stars that form a rough zig-zag that is often interprited as a lightning bolt. The stars are associated with the Sisters of Tormenas, figures from Zehini folk lore that wove storms with needles made of lightning bolts.

Weather - As previously mentioned, Dunsturmas is characterized by violent weather. Storms and heavy rainfall are very common during this sidereal month. As a result natural bodies of water have elevated levels and mudslides and landslides are more common than usual.

Gardening - Crops fare poorly during this month, most grains suffer from the beating storms and other crops are waterlogged to the point that they start rotting on the stem. Wet crops such as rice do well, but since rice cultivation is localized around Suisiadh and westward, it is a general time of hunger in Falhath.

Adventuring - Getting lost is easy as rivers swell and cut bridges and landmarks are lost in sudden squals. Travel on the seas are very dangerous and archery becomes automatically more difficult due to constant winds. (+1 diff)

2. The Celestial Month of the Dragon
Under the constellation of Thyr, the second sidereal month is a dynamic time of upheaval and change following the relentless storms of Dunsturmas.

Astronomy - Thyr is a large and easily recognized constellation. It is composed of three parts, the Dragon Knight Thyr, his dragon mount Aurixia, and his sword. The point of the sword holds the brightest star while the stars of the dragon tend to be fainter.

Weather - Storms are still magnificent and large, they are less common. this is counterbalanced by other natural forces becoming more active. Volcanoes, geysers, earthquakes, and tidal waves are more likely to occur during this sidereal time than any other.

Gardening - While crops fare better in this month, it is livestock that fares the best. Animals grow larger and more healthy, though this applies to all animals, from dogs to wolves to ravenous wyverns.

Adventuring - Generally more dangerous during this month as monsters gain slight advantages, plus chances of encountering Giants, and giant variants of monsters is more likely. Spells of enlargement are easier, while reduction is much more difficult.
