The Revenge that Binds…

Continuing my work with Revenge of the Serpent Queen, I’m always struck by the incongruity of getting PCs to go one way or another in a campaign world. The world of Lost Age Adventures is not quite as organized as something like the Sword Coast in the Forgotten Realms where you have some fairly major…

The Lost Age – The Ichythids (or Ichlyds) and Beyond

On Friday, I spoke a bit about the human-centric nature of the Lost Age world and the current campaign(s) I’m running. (Thank you everyone who chimed in with some input on the questions I raised about potential player push-back on the idea. It helps!) If you missed it, you can check it out here. But…

The Lost Age – The Human Angle

As I work on two versions of the Lost Age campaign – one for the group including my kids among 9 players and another for my regular gaming group – I’ve been pondering the world a bit. When I started writing Lost Age Adventures with Vince, I deliberately decided that the PCs should all be…

The Lost Age – They Came From the Lake, Session 2

Wow. I love starting holiday weekends off with a bang. And gaming with friends and all their kids (9 players plus yours truly) was a ton of fun! You can read about the first session here… In the Beginning… We started this session where the last one ended, batting clean-up on the beach after saving…

Five NPCs Visiting the Market…

While doing some preparation for the Lost Age Campaign I just started, it became painfully aware that I needed more texture in the NPCs who were coming to Nifton’s Inlet – this little fishing village with a reputation for great fish all year round. It seemed logical that there would be folks coming to take advantage…

The Lost Age – They Came From the Lake, Session 1

Can I just say that I’m a bit giddy? That’s right – “giddy!” Last night I started what is really the first campaign I have begun in earnest in at least a decade. I’m GMing. My two kids are among the 9 players playing and the rest of the crew is populated by the family…

The Lost Age – d12 Folks in the Zumka

As I work more and more on the Zumka… this marketplace in the middle of the Lost Age with a porous form of reality, I wondered at some of the people the PCs might find there when they arrive and walk its winding ways. If you roll a d12, here are some of the people…

Letters from the Lost Age Campaign, Ichlyd Exchange

The following exchange was recorded in the Kingdom of the Open Waters, an undersea world populated by the Ichlyd peoples. Letter from Wheurr, Chief Advisor to Queen Anqua of the Open Waters: Your Majesty, For nearly a century we have attempted to find out what happened to the Taiqa clan following the devastating events of…

The Cult of the Goddess

As I work on Insta-NPCs: Cults and Cultists I thought I would use some early notes to provide additional thoughts on the Cult of the Goddess encountered in The Snake’s Heart – A Lost Age Adventure. These are the qualities I worked with: Size – Horde (60 members) Commitment – Inspired Focus – Service Leadership…
