World Building #5: Cormac and the Cult

The gods are dead. Peace upon their virtues.

I was present when Rethgard burned and ash suffocated all cries for help. I witnessed the fall of Caer Pedryvan, long before it fell to the besiegers’ assaults. I listened to prayers lost in the wind, until hunger forced the godsforsaken to feast on their dead. I called to freedom all those doomed souls incarcerated by fear in Eastgate’s walls, hoping the fortress’s stone would keep the disease at bay that crawled out of the Dustmoor as Midlandshire’s righteous scourge...

Storytelling #2: Artifacts Grounded in Argea’s History

In the grand library of Galkarru, you’ve read a story about an ancient city in the middle of the desert, situated near a fertile oasis. It was once a prosperous city of tall minarets and flowering gardens, ruled by a proud sultan who decreed that everything within his city’s walls belonged to him and him alone. When he saw a priestess of Aliltu who visited the city, he was struck by her beauty and wanted to have her, so he instructed his men to take her to his palace.

World Building #4: Pyrrhenia

Many centuries ago, the city states of Pyrrhenia ruled over a massive empire. Their settlers had colonized new shores all along the coast, and their ships had even crossed the ocean to find a strange new world in the west, of which now only memories remain. In the years before the Great Cataclysm, however, Pyrrhenia had been a subject of the Kingdom of Cormac, the zenith of its power long past and now a mere shadow of its former glory.

Back home from Gamescom

There and back again – is what we’d say about our adventure at the Gamescom!

We are finally home again after an amazing week full of meeting new and old friends, planning, joking, being way too tired, feeling all sorts of overwhelming things, almost losing our voices, and explaining what we are doing over and over again to you guys!

We want to extend a very warm thank you to the company Trusted Events and their whole team for providing us with technical equipment at Gamescom: A huge 60 inch TV, two lightning fast computers with peripherals, as well as two PC monitors. Also a big thanks to them for sharing their invaluable expertise in setting up exhibition booths at conventions, especially Gamescom...
