    Road outside the city of Passage, in the nation of Aundair

    As we neared the city we saw a convoy moving to intercept us. We could make out a wagon and some riders. Black Tye identified the heraldry of a royal house; specifically that of Warlord Adal ir’Wynarn, Minister of Magic of Aundair.
    They hailed us and rode up to speak with Salamanthar. Why - Salamanthar? I have ...

  2. Tempting FATE: The Force and Other Setting Considerations

    We've covered the main mechanical aspects of FATE, as they relate to Star Wars; in both the Skills and Stunts posts, we referenced the Force in one fashion or another. So now it's time to describe the Force, how it works, and so forth, within the context of FATE.
