FTL drives    Systems  (Transportation)   (Defining)

Tell me, who wouldn’t want to see the stars? But laws of physics, as we know them, seem to put undesired constraints on extensive traveling through space. Can’t we just get around them? Seriously: how could a Faster-Than-Light drive work?

Beggar's War or Year of the Blood Flag    Systems  (Knowledge/Lore)   (Historical)

It is the Year of Furtive Shadows, and everyone can smell the changes in the wind.  Everyone, from the lowest scully boy up to the regents, knew, deep down, that something must happen soon.

Galron Stones    Systems  (Mystical)   (General)

Galron has found lasting fame for simply being the first one who mentioned the stones in the record.  This ancient parchments, translated into so many languages, is a hodge podge of various techniques that can be done, processes to do many of them, and vague hints about what can be done what the older magics.

Rise of the Fallen (1st campaign)    Systems  (Knowledge/Lore)   (Defining)

This is the first overview of two or three campaigns I call, Lords of the Fallen. Within this first installment the players will take part in the forging of the first Kingdoms of Earthen. They will witness the beginnings of slavery; join the ranks of the world’s first armies; be jolted by the anger of the Almighty Lord.

This is the time when the first legends are born. A Character could, perhaps, even become one themselves. The classes of magicians and warriors are very basic and limited. Socities, being in their infancy, are being created, and influenced, by them (intentionally, or accidentally). Life is hard, but endurable.

From this I will expand these ideas into quests, and races that dwell within this campaign. I will try to leave these overviews and quests as generic as possible, but with historical suggestions.

Theories on Art and Magic    Systems  (Artistic/Performance)   (Defining)

The mind of a wizard is more open to the more esoteric elements of his surroundings ââ?¬â?? this is why he is able to perceive the weave of the Great Tapestry that is the multiverse, and pull at the strings. This increased sensitivity can manifest in several ways.

Low Sorcery    Systems  (Societal/ Cultural)   (Defining)

In too many games, role-playing takes a back seat to Kewl Powerz, a tag given to the multitude of spell lists, special abilities, and innate powers claimed by a character. Many times this is a problem of munchkins, or blowing up stuff becoming more important in a game than role-playing though alternate personas.

Skinturner Secret Agent

       By: rickster

A shape-shifter of some sort has taken up a post at the War College of an enemy realm, where he secretly picks off only the most promising officer cadets, arranging bizarre accidents that gradually debase the leadership of the hostile army. In the long run, this will improve his nation's chances when the inevitable conflict comes.
As a shape-shifter he can impersonate superiors and peers alike and send the target candidate to the cleverly-prepared site of his (or her?) execution. As long as he is successful, no-one will ever know about the deception--even necromancy will only implicate the one impersonated...
