Goals for Immortals’ Wake: Rivergate

So what’s my goal for this new Moebius Adventures project? Immortals’ Wake: Rivergate will bring together a few things from the settings and rules we’ve written Moebius Adventures over the years. The goal will be to use the rules of Warrior, Rogue & Mage and finally express the high fantasy, nearly superhero world of IW.…

Mana from Heaven (WR&M)

For a couple of years now I’ve been whining and moaning about how I’m not a system guy. I’m not. I’ve accepted that. My attempts at system often end up muddled messes that don’t scale well. And that has stymied me a bit as far as Moebius stuff goes. Well, today I ran across a…

What do you look for in a game setting? Part 2

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the two short samples of life in the world of Immortals’ Wake – part 1 and part 2 – culminating in the demon trial of the merchant Evani Georgia.

Immortals’ Wake: The Trial

World: [Immortals’ Wake] The Nameless One and His Path of Destruction

In the Immortals’ Wake world, there is a character simply known as The Nameless One. For more than 2,000 years, he has roamed through populated and unpopulated areas, leaving a wake of destruction and bewilderment behind him. His is an extreme case of what I will call the “Road to Redemption.” Unfortunately for him, it’s…

World: [Immortals’ Wake] The Divine Form of the Church

As the dominant feature in the city of Belos, the Grand Basilica rises majestically above all other construction. Only two of the castle’s highest towers reaches the 150 foot height of the Basilica’s golden dome. From dawn to dusk, the dome catches the rays of the sun, lighting a beacon for the Church faithful. The…
