Oreste

La science-fiction française n’est pas morte, en témoigne le projet d’Oreste de Sébastien Moricard qui est déjà à plus de 200 % de ses ambitions de récolte de fonds.
Oreste, est un jeu de rôle proposant à la fois un univers et un système originaux. L’univers se place dans le cadre des premiers pas de l’Humanité au sein de l’Alliance des mondes Alignés, une confédération galactique en prise avec une race hautement hostile : les Seths. Un cadre qui joue donc avec des codes déjà éprouvés, mais qui aborde l’aube d’une nouvelle ère de l’Humanité, et non son apogée ou son déclin.
Du côté du système, Oreste propose le scan system pour les actions génériques, consistant à évaluer la difficulté d’une action selon trois critères, et les comparant au résultat d’un nombre de d10  dépendant de sa caractéristique auxquel s’ajoute le score de compétence du personnage. Pour aborder le combat, l’on passe à un système potentiellement plus stratégique, soutenu par des cartes d’équipement et de capacités.
Le jeu sortira sous forme de deux livres : Oreste – Les mondes alignés, un livre d’univers en trois parties ; et Oreste – Star Child, intégralement consacré au système. L’auteur ambitionne d’en faire des livres de haute qualité graphique avec près de 240 illustrations.
La campagne de financement court jusque le 9 novembre 2018 et visait 10 000€ déjà deux fois récoltés. La livraison est attendue pour le premier trimestre 2019.
Les contreparties proposées sont :

  • 5€ : un artwork ;
  • 20 € : Les Mondes Alignés OU Star Child en PDF ;
  • 30€ : L’audiobook des Mondes Alignés ;
  • 45€ : Les Mondes Alignés OU Star Child en version papier ;
  • 120€ : Les Mondes Alignés ET Star Child en version papier et PDF + l’audiobook ;
  • 140€ : La version limitée des 2 ouvrages réunis en un seul ;

Flipping through the Art & Arcana book

Want my copy of this book mailed to you for free? Scroll down to the bottom of the post and find out how!

I’m not usually the kind of gamer who buys art books and history books for our hobby. But this Art & Arcana book showed up in the mail and… gosh… it is pretty.

And when I opened the book at random, it thudded open straight to the Caves of Chaos. It is almost like the book KNEW what would hook me in.

If you are into the old school parts of D&D, this book is full of great bits and pieces of lore and history. Hand drawn maps from the old-timers in the hobby…

The cover studies for the original Chainmail rules…

And multiple comparative studies of monsters through the ages and editions like the beholder here (titled, horribly, “Evilutions”).

It even has the classic OD&D character sheet – in case you really needed a copy. 😉

But it is just crammed with amazing art. So many nostalgic feelings well up as I flip through this book. I still am not a fan of AD&D1e rules wise… but 1e books are just so tied up in youthful memories of delving through the arcane rules and material…

And weirdness. There’s a whole section for Erol Otus.

And this lovely spread of international old school.

A chapter touches on the classic video game translations of D&D…

More evilutions

More beholders

And I’m going to close out this quick flip-through with this very recent and freaking awesome two-page illustration of the lovely and deadly Zuggtmoy.


Want me to send you my copy of this heavy tome of cool stuff? It can be yours! Just head over to Twitter and retweet this tweet, along with a link to your favourite map from this blog. One retweeter will be chosen at random on Tuesday and I’ll wrap this sucker up and mail it to them!

Well of the Wyrm

The lair of Qiroi, scaled wyrm of the Red Fjords, is far from secret. The rocks for a mile around are burned free of all plantlife, the waters tainted, the skies quiet. The entrance to the old dungeons beneath the ruins of Caenleigh Hold are clearly marked with his spoor and shed scales. And within the dungeons you can hear the serpentine slithering of the long monstrous dragon.

Well of the Wyrm

But Qiroi is no fool or beastial dragon. The sounds and movement within the dungeons east of the entrance cave are those of illusions planted to lure the unwary. For Quiroi lives beneath the dungeon, in a set of chambers reached through the river that feeds the ancient Caenleigh well.

Well of the Wyrm (B&W)Well of the Wyrm (B&W)

But he is still a dragon, and has little patience for interlopers and would-be dragon hunters. He uses the illusions and distractions to help him get the jump on intruders, to strike them from behind with his corrosive breath and potent magics.

[EPT] Engsvanyali Tomb Raiding!

In our weekly Empire of the Petal Throne campaign, we have engaged in some light tomb raiding in order to find out more information about the history of a problem we are having. These tombs are associated with the followers of the last avatar of the Azure Queen in Glory… and we are trying to figure out how to deal with her next avatar, who we worry is going to be the Lady Seruna, daughter of the previous governor of our little colony.

The problem of course is that the current governor of the colony is one of the PCs (and my character’s nephew), and is currently the avatar of her arch-nemesis.

Since we play online using Google Hangouts, I pulled up Photoshop on one of my monitors, set it up with screen sharing to the rest of the group, and drew this player map as we explored based on the GM’s descriptions of the tombs.

A lot of people (especially on-line groups) pooh-pooh the role of party mapper (and party caller), but I find they really help things out. The party caller is great. Instead of everyone talking over each other to explain how we deal with a situation of where we are exploring next and what order we are going in and who is doing what, we have one voice that explains the sequence that we’ve negotiated as a group to the GM and we go ahead with it. It really works well for exploration-based play.

The Cursed Galleries

Supposedly once home to a demented prince of alien demons, the walls of the cursed galleries are decorated in mad texts painted in bold black on every available inch. These texts speak of other worlds, demonic powers, and foul creatures from “beyond the veil”.

The Cursed GalleriesThe Cursed Galleries

The galleries are beneath the Benmiria Academy of the Arcane, and are not only locked, but boarded shut. Those who try to study the walls often awaken somewhere else with no memories of the intervening time – somehow controlled or possessed by the texts they read, or if one experiment is to be believed, by either the galleries themselves or something foul still within them.

But when the diabolist arrived in Northvale and summoned the demon Xag’tharon to destroy the king’s armies, sages noted Xag’tharon is one of several demons who’s names are known to the Benmirian archives. And the locked texts of course indicate that they were in turn translated from the mad scribings in the galleries.

The kingdom needs a clever wizard or cleric to brave the galleries to find out more – and they should not travel there alone, for who knows what other foul powers the galleries can manifest as you attempt to unlock the secrets contained there.

Catacombs beneath the Holy City

The Holy City has a slight necropolis issue. For most of the history of the city, old mines and caverns beneath the hills of the city have been used as crypts and tombs. Some areas were expanded by churches specifically to inter the deceased, others just adapted as the small silver mines that helped found the city were worn out.

Catacombs Beneath the Holy CityCatacombs Beneath the Holy City

The reason it has become a problem is there can be no proper sewer system built beneath the city as long as the churches and temples regard the catacombs as sacred reliquaries. Further, the thieves that used the massive interconnected structures of tunnels and chambers to get around the city have been known to bury their own (and possibly their victims) down here without proper rites and rituals – leading to a small but steady growth of undead prowling the catacombs. The upside of this is few thieves use the catacombs anymore, but the churches have had to start setting guards to watch over their sacred tombs and crypts to keep prowling ghouls away…

Like the Dark Caverns of Turr that I posted last month, this map is one from my history books. I drew this map in December of 2014 while researching the catacombs under Paris and Rome. I really got into it and crammed all this material onto a single letter-sized page. And then never posted it. I did, however, send a scan of it to Mike Monaco and Paolo Greco for use in Burgs & Bailiffs: Trinity. So here we are, 4 years later, and I finally dug the original out of my old folders while organizing my office and have scanned it for your own games and mine.

Hebdo du 15 octobre 2018

La pluie tombe sur le cimetière d’Arcata. Les proches ont dit leurs derniers adieux à Greg et se sont retirés, avec leurs souvenirs. Sa tombe porte quelques hommages fleuris à sa mémoire mais d’autres anonymes y ont aussi déposé quelques marques d’affection. Ici une paire de cristaux plastiques à 10 faces, ici un tambour chamanique.
La nuit est un instant illuminée par l’arrivée d’un aéronef d’un autre temps, un autre monde. La silhouette qui en sort est pourtant bien humanoïde et se dirige vers la tombe en question et s’y recueille un instant. Puis elle s’en retourne et s’envole, laissant à nouveau les lieux dans l’obscurité de la nuit.
Un visiteur matinal trouvera le lendemain, quelques hommages de plus. Les fiches du GRoG de la semaine. Tal’Tikur, la carte de Zore, la dernière campagne en date de D&D5, deux campagnes de Pathfinder, un jeu de groles français tiré d’une BD et la version française de Tails of Equestria.
C’est peu de choses au vu de ce que Greg nous aura laissé de son côté…

Prince’s Harbour – Map 1

Prince’s Harbour is a small bay along the Flindhome River long ago wrestled from control of the local humanoids and now slowly being converted into agricultural land. The community of Prince’s Harbour is self-reliant and independent – a collection of small “outpost” farmers, woodsmen, miners and so on built up around the small community of Prince’s Harbour itself.

Prince's Harbour - Map 1Prince’s Harbour – Map 1

This map focuses on a small forested area to the southwest of the community proper and is considered to most to be the furthest point that is still “Prince’s Harbour” instead of the old Flindlands. A small gold mine along the Gnoll’s Ear river is the anchor to this area, with a few supporting farms around it. The road to the east eventually leads to the community proper.

Prince's Harbour - Map 1 (no hexes)Prince’s Harbour – Map 1 (no hexes)

Adventurers are most likely to be interested in this area because the virgin forests still may be home to the remnants, descendants, or lost treasures of the beastmen who once had lordship over the area – or of course because of Jendson’s Mine which is certainly going to attract some attention as last year it looked like they had exhausted their small vein of ore, but are suddenly bringing in more gold than ever.

Each hex on the map is roughly 100 feet face-to-face. This map is also the first full map released on the blog that was drawn entirely digitally in Photoshop – which has been a learning curve for me. One thing I learned was to increase my resolution a lot – this map is only 300dpi and I had to save it as a jpg to keep file size under control, but I’ve learned a lot of tricks in the month since I drew it and any future digital maps will be back at the more recent 600 to 1200 dpi and file sizes are also kept down.

There is already a second map in the set drawn for release next month, and a total of 9 maps will be in the set when it is finished.
