Cyclopedia + Forgotten Realms Original Set = Awesomeness

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on March 10, 2010

Doc Rotwang recently posted on his blog, I Waste The Buddha With My Crossbow: The Voices Are Whispering Their Strange Maths To Me, about using the most excellent D&D Rules Cyclopedia with the Forgotten Realms setting….from the original Boxed Set.

I loved that set….it was from a simpler time before the power escalation, Time of Troubles crap-fest. Don’t get me wrong, I liked playing Baldur’s Gate, but somehow the storyline that preceded it and all the canon material that’s been built up over the years is a bit much.

He goes on to flesh out some specifics  on what his game will be about.…Rotwang, always the master mixer, is bringin’ some Swashbuckling to Sembia. It sounds like a fun game. Thanks for the inspiration, good Doctor!

I’m setting up a game with my kids and grabbed those very materials….not so much for the rules really (my kids are 3 and 5), but more for inspiration (and pictures for the kids). We’ll be using some simpler, off-the-cuff rules in our game….and it looks like ours will feature pixies….I’ll be posting more on this later.

Aega Mythea – Update Coming Soon

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on November 15, 2006

I’ve been a little slow on posting over the last two weeks. In part due to personal time constraints and in part because I’m hoping to get some more Aega Mythea materials worked out and posted.

I have some time over the next few days; so there should be some new development content up here by the end of the week.
