Harnworld

I might of posted this up before, but the setting which is excellent and the game system (which is totally seperate and still very good) deserve much consideration.

If you don't know....

Hârn is a mist-shrouded island lying off the western coast of the continent of Lýthia, and legend has it populated by savage beasts, barbaric tribesmen, and mysterious wizards.

First published in 1983, Hârn is one of the most detailed fantasy worlds ever created and we are proud to be your gateway to its small but thriving worldwide fan community. So come on in and join the fun.

Whenever I feel I might be going too far in world development for Midian, I just take a look at some of the fan stuff for Harn.  It makes me feel like an amateur.

Harn's attention to (and obsession with) minutae and detail blows me away sometimes.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

When I spoke about HârnMaster a couple of years ago, your opinion of the system was less than positive.

Changed your mind?

My opinion of the system is still mixed at best. In fact, to be honest, i don't even remember what the system is right now. I am merely stating that Harn's attention to world detail is staggering sometimes (which is something I admire periodically)

Hehe, well, I talked to MoonHunter at the time, but now we know your opinion as well. :D

I have never changed my mind. The setting is still great. The system is okay. It is a great system, but is hampered by some clumsy parts.

You have to remember, this game seems to attract medieval scholars like bees to honey.

And yet they seem more interested in adding to the game world than arguing over their scholarly knowledge.  At least, this is the impression that I get from my outsider's perspective.  It is a great example of how a strong & supportive community really enhances a game.
