  • Sánthrada - Eastern Lýthia Map and Index   4 days 14 hours ago

    I'm just wondering about releases in 2020 now. I was pleasantly floored by Karejia, and by the first foray into Hepekeria.

    I'm not surprised that there've only been these two releases this year. Both supplements were huge, and if you have things like Azeryan coming up (which would be a supplement on the scale of Anzeloria), I'm not daunted by the long wait for what comes next.

    Is there any news on this publication?

  • Kingdom of Vitho and Kingdom of Menema   3 weeks 2 days ago

    I started a group of 5 freshly created characters in Chelemby, all wanting to go there because they had heard there were riches to be made there. I modeled the ship's crew after Firefly and off they went. Lots of stops along the way and even more when they got there. My Hepekaria, I'm sure, was nothing like what these guys will come up with but the group seemed to enjoy it. It took about a year (real time) to get there meeting every other Friday evening. Wouldn't have taken that long but a hurricane struck them sailing from Tarkain almost killing everyone. This forced them so far west without a mast they almost missed Kepekaria when they headed south. Great fun.

    The characters could always start in Cherafir on Harn, or visit Chelemby or Berema, and learn that they will need to head to Hepekeria to complete whatever task they have been assigned.

    Let's say they're after an Ivinian pirate who'd been responsible for slaughtering someone dear to the characters - and he's headed off to the ex-pat Ivinian colony down south to catch some sunshine with the other semi-retired Ivinian pirate scum, so off they must go to catch him and bring him back, tanned and fit and ready for the noose.

    Of course, when they get there that's when they find complications, and that leads them across the face of Hepekeria, getting into their usual scrapes wherever they go.

    There seems to be quite a few that are either broken links, or have files (Picture links, etc.) missing sadly.

    Personally, I default to the Byzantine Empire for ideas regarding the Azeryani. Not so much for the details of military and administration, but for the overall sophistication and generally sclerotic culture.

    I'd compare the coastal states to some of the petty states around southern Italy and the Adriatic in that time frame - all those little duchies and principalities (Spoleto, Benevento, Apulia, Bari, Epirus, Amalfi, etc..) that even Wikipedia can't keep track of. Norman Sicily is in that area, but Norman Palermo was a much bigger and more important city than anything in Menema - I'd go with the smaller realms or a different time period. Visigothic Spain and Vandal Africa also might give you some ideas.

    Of course, the caveat here is that the KP writers look to the real world for just two things - inspiration and sanity checking. Don't try too hard to fit it all into a Terran timeline or geography.

    Loved the module! And Kareja also!
    I`m eager to get my hands on the other 3 hepekeria modules! Love your work guys! Any plans in a near future on doing simillar stuff on Palithane, Trierzon, and Lankor?

  • Earthmaster site in Azeryan   8 weeks 1 day ago

    You are correct, insofar as there are no Earthmaster sites (as such) known to Loremasters in Ázeryàn.

    Whether this is because there are none, or simply because they are hidden or have not yet been discovered, is open to conjecture.

  • Menêma - Hèpekéria's Maritime Crossroads   10 weeks 4 days ago

    I'm sure one of them could have been Shomos. Had a little sign and all.

  • Menêma - Hèpekéria's Maritime Crossroads   10 weeks 5 days ago

    Sadly they are now all ex-underwater villages.

    Please re-download the file.

  • Menêma - Hèpekéria's Maritime Crossroads   10 weeks 5 days ago

    Oooh. They are tiny villages and keeps. Must be mer-hobbits or mer-gnomes.

  • Menêma - Hèpekéria's Maritime Crossroads   10 weeks 5 days ago

    Square JX has a lot of errant village and town markers. Either that or a underwater merman colony.

  • Menêma Gazetteer   11 weeks 23 hours ago

    Lots of chances for political intrigue, trading adventures, exploration. I think it's one of the most adventure-rich areas mapped to date. I wouldn't expect anything more on this specific regional map to be published in the near-to-middling future. Expect more "breadth" before more "depth" in Hepekeria and Venarive in general.

  • Where is Shomos?   11 weeks 2 days ago

    So that's where the info came from - I never thought to look in the Halean article. Much appreciated.

    I can see Shomos as being a comparatively small provincial town - hence it not being listed as either a chartered or imperial city, nor even as a provincial town in Venarive (and therefore not showing up on the map). But it must have some considerable wealth for someone (or someone's) to be able to afford to spend 42,000d on an animal for the Pamesani arena - that isn't too far from the cost of a small keep!
