C’est sans doute pour cela que les matelots et officiers du GRoG ont été moins actifs cette semaine. Mais certains ont quand même voulu ajouter, aux roulements de dés rituels, quelques fiches montrant comme le loisir est vivant et varié.
Cela va de simples modules de 8 pages de D&D, comme The Jade Hare, ou des planche de PNJ en cartons du Character & Monster Assortment.
Mais aussi des choses qui ont pris le temps de murir, comme Kémi, et son décor égyptien. Ou des adaptations d’univers connus comme le tout mignon Tails of Equestria et le cultissime Princess Bride.
Et aussi des univers moins connus, voire originaux, comme ceux proposés dans Mythic D6.
Ils s’ajoutent à l’interminable liste de ce que les matelots ont fiché pour que aucun ne soit oublié ou ignoré.

Every month we go through our back catalog of maps and the many patrons over on Patreons vote on which two should be re-released under the free commercial use license. For older maps I also work on upgrading the quality of the scan where possible.
The Smith’s Reliquary was crafted from heavy blocks of stone banded together with huge bands of steel that wrap around the structure like the hoops on a barrel. These bindings have rusted through the two hundred years this reliquary has stood, discolouring the stone of the building as well as the walkway and the cobbled street that passes along it.
The central chamber within is the reliquary itself, with a massive anvil in the centre of the space, flanked by tools and half-complete weapons and iron hardware of immense size. The back of the chamber is a huge furnace, long cold but for a few coals that are kept burning by the priests, replaced every few hours as they burn out.
Behind the central chamber is the resting place of the Smith. Either a mighty titan of the craft, or possibly an actual godling struck down somehow. But the sarcophagus is a lie, and within it is but the corpse of a stone giant embalmed and secured against grave robbers.
The true tomb of the Smith is hidden deep beneath this structure. In the priests’ chambers on the left side of the map is a small secret door behind which is a secure area containing a key as well as a variety of minor artifacts of the church (the first nail crafted by the Smith, a hammer head that has been shattered from heavy use, leather tongs that held his works, and so on). The key in turn unlocks the secret door hidden beneath the anvil in the main reliquary. But first one has to pull the four massive iron bolts that hold it in place and then slide this hundred-ton piece of steel aside.
Beneath the trap door is a set of stairs leading down to a natural cave with heavy and poisonous sulfuric fumes bubbling up through mud pits. The whole cave is wet and hot and oppressive. At the far side across a small bridge over the mud pits is the actual tomb of the Smith with a shaft of blackest obsidian through his chest – still breathing, but never waking.
