The link above is to the playtest google doc I have been working from. I think there is enough here for playtest.
The first adventure is the The Knights of Salt. Thanks to everyone who has offered suggestions so far…
The document has a lot to offer but there is more to come. Here is a brief intro…
A World War between Bears and Man set in a fantasy desert wasteland.
- We, the BEARS and our kin, have traveled from OSOLAT to escape a war, only to find another in KINGSLAND.
- KINGLSLAND is our new home, but this new world is dangerous.
- We are the clans of the BEAR: Brown, Black, Grizzly, Panda, Polar, and Koala
- We live in a state of constant war against MAN, and their insatiable hunger.
- The BEARS of Kingsland are new to this land, but not new to war.
- BEARS are fierce fighters, known for their strength and prowess in combat.
- The SPIRES are dangerous rocky columns covering the plateau of land to the north.
- HUMANS live in the cracks of the SPIRES.
- The father BEARS foretold our arrival and our struggle with the MAN and BEAST, but we had no other place to run.
- MAGIC is unreliable and has only just been discovered by the BEARS. MAN mastered MAGIC long ago.
- BEARS also have great powers. It is called PSI.
- PSI and MAGIC are not compatible.
- There are 2 kinds of humans, MEN and BEASTS. Men are the leaders and control MAGIC. Beasts are the larger, stronger and mutated version of man.
- BEARS number in the hundreds, maybe a thousand at most. They are the last of their kind. Fighting for survival against an insatiable enemy, MAN.
- There is only one thing MAN fears, GRIFFONS.
