Despite Covid19, we’ve managed to produce a lot of great stuff this year. Really because of it, since we were stuck at home and unable to go to conventions, and thus work on all this great things!
First off, we have several new RPG titles available on DriveThruRPG:
The Calendar of the Scarred Lands: years, months, and weeks on Scarn work differently than on earth, organized and named after the victorious gods. Keep track of seasons, zodiac, lunar cycles, and holidays with this handy calendar.
The Serpent Amphora 5e Quickstart: This introductory adventure not only introduces the Scarred Lands setting, but supplies all you need to run Dungeons and Dragons 5e (at least rules wise. You still need a few friends and some dice). The adventure ties into our novel Vigilant and follows the first adventure of his brother Kane, as described in Vigilant’s prologue. It includes character sheets for Kane and his friends.
Vigilant Training Mission: Maritime Patrol or Oh Bouy, What a Bloody Oar-deal! This adventure introduces the Blood Sea setting of Scarred Lands. The players play Veshian Vigilants out on patrol on the sea when a terrible storm hits. It comes with 6 level 3 playable characters and full color maps of the galleon vessel where the bulk of the adventure takes place. The maps can be printed out or loaded into your favorite virtual table top application.
The Mists of Algos: This Blood Sea adventure can be run as a sequel to Maritime Patrol or as its own stand alone game. Help a little fishing village on the coast recover their lost harvest that was raided by pirates! This rich adventure is a good 8 hours or more of play.
The Frostlands of Fenrilik: This in-depth Scarred Lands book takes place in the far northern continent of the Scarred Lands, introducing new locations, monsters, geography, rules, races, subclasses, spells, magic items, maps, and NPCs. An introductory adventure takes players through level 2 (which can also be easily be adapted to higher level groups). This title is also available a physical book through Print on Demand.
The Frostlands of Fenrilik: Yenie’s Journal: This supplementary material for Frostlands of Fenrilik is pay what you want. It expands the travelogue introduced in the main book and adds a city map, new spells, rituals, and 3 NPCs. This is a nice little title gives you a taste of the setting if you’re not sure you want to pick up the full book yet, and adds more rich background information if do.
We’ve also been involved in multiple weekly Twitch streams:
Running on Mondays from noon-2PM PST (3PM-6PM EST) you’re find us at both Travis Legge’s PlasticAgePlays and the official Onyx Path twitch channel.
Fran and I both played in the later episodes of Myths and Matchmakers (a complete series available on You Tube) are are currently played in Travis Legge’s series A Family Affair (which posts about two weeks after the episodes first air on Twitch).
On Fridays (11AM – 1:30PM PST / 2PM – 3:30 EST), Sarah does a weekly Twitch show with Jeremy Hochhalter of Wanderer’s Haven Publications called The Lore You Know, where we primarily discuss the deep lore about the extensive setting of the Scarred Lands. We delve into the original 3.x D&D setting books as well as how they connect with the new 5e lore. You can see the entire series produced so far here on You Tube.
If you subscribe to the Onyx Path twitch channel you may find Fran or myself in various other events, including Scarred Lands: Frostlands of Fenrilik game I ran titled “Welcome to Kovokimru,” and a handful of interviews and special events.
Currently we are part of the Scarred Lands Kickstarter for Dead Man’s Rust. Fran was one of the authors on this phenomenal new title for the Scarred Lands. You can check out Kickstarter through December 22nd, or look for it on DriveThruRPG after the campaign is over (although it will probably be a while if you missed the campaign).
And finally, in non-Scarred Lands related news (yes we do, occasionally, work on other things), Sarah wrote a weekly Agile Insights blog. You can find all of her blog posts on her LinkedIn page or on her employer’s web site at Ascend Consulting. Drop an email if you’re looking for an Agile Coach.
