For some reason we've not posted here in the past 4 years. Why did we stop? We could use it again for so many different things. I think we should find a use for it or find a way to delete it.

A Idea on Dragons
I think there should only be very few dragons running around and what I'm thinking of doing with them is that there are like the ancient protectors for the different races and what not. As in like Gold Dragons were the protectors of the elves. But over the years the Ogre Lich has hunted down and killed most of the good ones and he uses the evil ones that are the protectors of the ogres as generals in his armies. Since he has done that the other dragons have come down to help out the other races in there war against the ogres but an old truce of the dragons prevents them from using their full power in front of the lesser races.

On the number of dragons I think there should only be one left for each race and the ogre lich still has one to fight each of the other dragons on a one to one bases

Day 18 or so in Stahl
It has been not a month since we have entered this land and yet we have done so much. We have temporarily stopped a crime lord, ran through dungeons of a lost knigdom, faced a avator of a dark god, helped a forgotten god, and helped with some other minor affairs with the city of Stahl. Now we stand here attempting to either stop a simple drug ring or a full invasion of the city. We are not sure yet what is going to happen.

The past few days have been a blur. I have tracked down the hub of the operations to a inn, of sorts, in the housing projects that were privately funded by the Countess Ellissa. It seems that her and the Duke are the brains behind the operation of Tol Var. Although, some information has lead to another person, Oblic. I believe that is the spelling of the name, but I am not sure.

But the past few days have not been all business though. The relationship between me and Melissa has begun to bloom. I treated her to a candle light dinner on the roof of her inn and bought some new clothes for her. I swear that she had been wearing the same dresses since I arrived in Stahl. The relationship is going better than I excepted it to go. So, what I am about to ask of her brings a burden on my heart. I am going to send her into the Lion's Den, so to speak, to find out information about the Duke. If things go well, we will have information that links the Duke to the drug ring. If things go bad ... that is something that I wish not to think of.

But on to other news, there seems to be yet another new member to this world. Kurst, I believe that was his name, has join us as strangers in the city of Stahl. Whatever the forces my be, I don't know why they have picked this city to teleport people to. He seems to a odd fellow. Fights with a dagger that is attached to a strange handle. Odd fighting style, but he seems to fight quite well. I am sure that he will be a valuble assest to the group.

The morning rays are starting to peek over the city. I need to catch a little shut eye, I will need as much sleep as possible. I have to go talk to the blind guy, in the morning.

Mikros (Halflings) - done
Elves - done
Korvani (Human Sub-culture) - just about done with E working on them
Dwarves - Not sure of how far along they are but Brad's working on them
Main Human Culture (Ogres' direct opponent) - Just going to use Normal Humans most likely

We have two done with two more in the works

The Pantheon
Ok here is the basic setup of the Pantheon.

At the top there is the one true deity which only the lesser ones know about (I havn't got a name for him), which is in turn served by 1000s of the lesser deities.

Of the lesser deities about 10 or so came to the world to serve it as gods or/and protectors. Of the ones that came to the world one of them was corrupt, and he was able to corrupt a few more of them to his evil way. When the deities came into the world the brought with them a host of celestials. The Dark deity was able to corrupt alot of the celestials for his own service which are now known as fiends. The neutral deities stay in the same place as the good deities but it is known that they will use celestials and fiends which ever serves thier perpose.

Also I was wondering what everyone thinks about the planes as in which ones are in this world

I've been thinking on how the deities should work and I think I came up with a good idea. I think that there should be one big all powerful deity that rules over everything, which only the other "deities" know about. And under him there are other way powerful god like beings, they are worshiped as deities by the people who live on the planet. There are alot of them but only like 10 or 15 came to the planet to watch over it, while the rest of them are on another plane with the all powerful deity. Tell me what you think about that

when are these going to get done?
ok lets take a minute and see what needs to be finish and what is finish with the races

The halflings are Finish
The Elves are finish
Aron didn't you say that there was more that you wanted to do to your Human sub race?
Brad didn't you say that the dwarves you posted are still a project in the works?
Anthony has said that he's working on the Ogres and that the half ogres will be the ones out of the Dragonlance book
and I say that we leave the main humans as is


And also so that we can pace ourselves I say that we have a minimal time to work on something and a somewhat deadline on getting them done tell me what you think of this too

Something DID come up...
We missed Deities. Obviously, any fantasy world is going to need some kind of pantheon, if for no other reason than giving cleric PCs something to do. :) I've already come up with Talmagia, the goddess of magic. Bear in mind, though, that I'm kinda burned on the whole Forgotten Realms "let's make a deity for everything" idea. Also, racial deities bother me for some reason. I figure we could do with a pentheon of, at absolute maximum, about 25. I would push for closer to 10 to 15. What other concepts should we work into a pantheon?

There are some standards: war, agriculture and hearth, love(?). Anyone have any other ideas? What are your thoughts on deities?

Current Mood: wondering?

I have edit my halflings

Quick update about things..
Alex and I were talking in another thread about priority in creating this world. Here is a rundown of the order we agreed that this setting design should take.

1st - Races(Self-explanatory; already in progress.)
Alex-Mikros ("Halflings")
Aron-Human Sub-culture
Everyone-Main Human Culture (Ogres' direct opponent)
2nd - Cities(Major cities, ruins of destroyed towns, etc.)
3rd - Geography(It'd be easier with some of the cities already made.)
4th - Classes(Maybe PrCs; I would leave Core Classes alone.)
5th - Major NPCs & Monsters(Leaders, heroes, and stuff to kill.)
6th - World's History(Major events.)
7th - Feats & Skills(Not unless you have a real good idea.)
8th - Spells & Magic(As before, real good idea.)
9th - Magic Items(read: Artifacts)

I'll probably try to keep updating this entry as we go along. That way, we have an easy reference for where we are. If anyone can think of something we're leaving out of this process, let us know.
