    Great books to help create your world. The list will get larger as I read more books on the subject. Wonderbook - The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction by Jeff Vandermeer Writing Monsters - How to Craft Believably Terrifying Creatures to Enhance Your Horror, Fantasy, and...

    I have also asked these questions in the past. The only way I would find out is by trying to host such a game. This is what I have learned from it so far. 1. Only host to a group that is genuinely interested in pacifism otherwise it will not work. 2. Keep the roleplayers occupied with...

    Malruhn - good points. Some bad guys are all about death, but let's be real here: the only creatures that don't have an interest in self-preservation are undead, robots, and living things who are guarding something more valuable than life (like their kids). Don't let the thread name fool you, by...

    In my homebrew game I provide the possibility to live a peaceful life in a hard time. I show that one can contribute to society without having to be an adventurer killing monsters to protect a town. How? - start with an apprenticeship and have them build to be master of a skill to eventually own...

    "(Pacifism) is unrealistic and undoable in a game." Sign of the times, huh? The question, to me, is how does the GM keep things interesting? I've thought about a pacifist Skyrim game, but I'm not sure that it's possible. I feel like half of the quests require the death of a creature, even if...

    I have used Buddhism in a fantasy setting that rewards experience points to resolve conflicts not using violence as an alternative. The roleplayer can however, use self defense methods, but not violence to overcome an opponent. The experience was wonderful as the interested roleplayers used the...

    I have very bad news: I'm almost done reading a Dance with Dragons. Which means that my only exposure to a medieval setting in which combat is a bad thing will go on hiatus. Have you played in or run a campaign that shuns combat? Have you seen players maintain interest when something less than...

    Hello gamers: I'd like to GM a Lord of the Rings/Game of Thrones style game on a weekly (evening) basis. Day of the week is pretty flexible - depends on what the group needs. Also, I'll be using a learn-as-you-play style to teach the game system, which is pretty easy. The game is very...

    Spell cards: I wouldn't use them. I'd just use my character sheet. Playing cards: to me, these have a pretty heavy wild-west flavor. Which would be great in a wild-west game, but not in other games. Maybe I should just focus on the "kings," "queens," and Alice in Wonderland... More cards...

    As one of my favorite parts of the game, modules need to be done right. Iíve cut a lot of subjective material from the modules chapter, and Iím hoping that whatís left is short and sweet. Each sample module is getting a makeover, and the rules module is complete, although I canít code the...

    Welcome, fellow 'Zonie! This site has a chatroom that's great for online games, and the best way to get involved in the forums is to start a thread. I'm designing a game as well, and I'm a recovering 3.5 addict so if you want to bounce any ideas off me just say so!

    Hey really good comments on the Ravenloft post I did. I'm going to look into the Heroes of Horror book and maybe use their taint rules there! Thanks again

    Greetings,

    I am a player LFG and based on your write up, I would like to play in a game run by you (I'm recovering from a bad DM...). I don't have a location suitable for a game, but am willing to travel a little for a good game.

    :^)

A Summary of the Ages

by DMMike on 08-12-2009 at 03:10 PM
The World is a wonderful place. Civilizations come and go; disasters strike, and the earth grows anew. Of the ages of people, there have been three. The first is largely unknown, the second lies mostly in legend, and the third is where they find themselves presently.

The first age was the time of the ancients. They ruled a glorious kingdom and enjoyed all the fruit of the earth. It is said that the ancients ruled over magic and monsters, that they were divine. These demigods gave
