AG and Maxx, together again for the first time!!!!!
« on: February 15, 2015, 01:24:21 PM »
Ok So I'm liking the idea of either a magic collage campus or an herbal district that supports same if we wanna go a little less cliche'? It would be from my Kuthrii empire. I would like to keep the minimum of non-ghosts, but would def want some of Pilgram to bleed in, The landmark in my world would be the tower that the Kuthrii used to battle the Star Whales, I'm going to use this at the end of a quest for it, just like a ghostly El Dorado w/ magic knowlege the prize? Thoughts? Link to Stolen World http://strolen.com/viewing/The_Stolen_World

Finally we are back together for the first time!!!!!1

Okay, you obviously want ghosts, but pray tell: What kind of Ghosts?

Are we talking DnD style ghosts that hate the living and age people on touch, or are we talking about "Spirited Away" kind of ghosts that live like they are alive?

The Ghosts could be tied to the phases of the moon, and once, every full moon, they come to life as actual, living and breathing NPCs that the players can touch, communicate with and feel to their touch.

It could be that time shifts, or bends, during a full moon, bringing the distant past into the present.

At the center of the city district, there is a clock tower. Every midnight it goes haywire and the moon turns the color of blood.

Within the Clockwork on the uppermost level of the clock tower, the reason for the curse lives. The formidable will of the local Baron, who cannot accept the loss of his Barony, whose force of will alone binds the two dimensions together, and who denies the spirits their eternal rest.

He has a lover - the Half Demon Redhead known as Branch Woman; a witch that lives eternally in the second story of a local townhouse. She is not a ghost, and she can only be with the Baron on a full moon, when he materializes. The rest of the time she spends in her apartment, trying to find a way to bring the Ghosts back from their undeath.

Oh, and during the Blood Moon the final hour of the City is replayed, and hostile ghost slayers come riding in, attacking everyone, including the PCs.

Love it, one tweak Not Baron, MU who is a mid level functionary of battle vrs Star Whales(see sub for details) what are your feelings on district theme or do you just want it to be general city district? Maybe MU is head of campus of MU school and its not the collage itself but an outliying withherbal gardens and collage life dorms etc?

ooooooo
I think this will match your setting more!!!!!
How about district WAS 50% Temples of(now) long dead minor ish gods 25% MU studants and acolytes living/ recreation 25% business that support both used to border on both MU school and Major god temple districts, instead of Baron ,Mystic Thurge (hybrid cleric /MU)? He instructed future thurges and MUs doing their religion credits, down on luck temples making a little cash from MU instruction?

So its in your world because of temples and mine due to MU portion

Really starting to love idea that this is sort of run of the mill for yours and epic in mine?

Bitter dead gods

apprentice ghost slayers

hideouts for desperate Pilgrim residents or visiters

herbal gardens with magic stuff and hostle plants,maybe insects?

where the Bixstocks come from?

By MU, I take it you are refering to Magic Users? Like in 1st ed AD&D?

Bitter dead Gods! Yes, love that one. Included directly in Pilgrim too (in addition to the Pan Handler)

Apprentice Ghost Slayers!!!!!!

Herbal Gardens, cool!

Insects: Already a mainstay in Coldforged, the most insect and animal intensive game there ever was.

Okay, Bixstocks home is cool!

*****

Adding...

- Impossible to leave area unless the clockwork is stopped?

- Mystic Fog at the edges of the district? Only clears if clock stopped

- One of the Ghost seems to have a memory, realizing that he has met the PCs before (Groundhog day type ghost)

Its just that my setting part of it is going to be way more restricted than yours. The good thing about using the Kuthrii Empire,is that It is a blank slate as far as Im concerned other than what little is on the sub.Sorry and Thanx!BTW there is no hurry on this project for me, I will not be needing to use this for at LEAST a year IFL. That being said I also could spend some time on this now as it would be great to get it out of the way.So timetable is pretty much up to you.)
