Spider of Death

Spelljammer Gone Wild

There are many legacies of the Thousand Ships War that engulfed Rielunspace and all of the Aether Void beyond Rielun’s sphere. The worst legacies were the deadly clockwork creations the last Emperor-King of the Kings’ Monarchy, Lorac Silidast, released into the universe to conquer and destroy his foes. The Mad Drider created walking steam mechs that looked like giant spiders and set them upon world after world that had little hope of repealing the clockwork monsters. These Spiders of Death had a touch of intelligence (and evil) in them and were nearly as deadly to the Kings’ Monarchy’s own soldiers as to the enemy. Many of the creations, which were half magical golems and half advanced steamcraft constructs, began to be able to repair and improve on themselves, although they never were able to replicate themselves. They soon became independent enough to exist on their own, as long as they…

Thundermount Desert

Sharing this post from my Spelljammer Gone Wild blog. The Thundermount Desert on Rielun is a legacy of the Thousands Ships War.

Spelljammer Gone Wild

This deadly desert sits near the center of the continent of Malecade along its southern shoreline. It is another lasting legacy of the conflict between the peoples of Rielun and the Kings’ Monarchy. It was created when the Imperial Throneship, Thundermount, crashed into Malecade during the Thousands Ships War (known on Rielun as the Third War). The resulting explosion created the desert and the regions around it that would become known as the Wildlands of Malecade. While much of the land healed due to the collective will of the Ethma’rieluna (Children of the World), the desert itself has never been completely reclaimed. Much of it remains cursed and unnatural and many on the continent avoid passing through or even near it. However, the Ethma’rieluna believe it will eventually become just another part of the Balance of the Four. They believe that Jaua Ae-rielun has purposefully brought peoples and even entire…

Rielun Revised

This world map shows the primary campaign world, Rielun, within my Spelljammer Gone Wild steampunk cosmology for D&D v.3.5. The map was created using the free version of a program called Hexographer.

You can read about the world’s prehistory here.

Spelljammer Gone Wild

While I had completed this map in Hexographer some time ago, I never got around to sharing it on here. This is now the official Time of Ages campaign setting map from which all others will be created.

Kuaj-Pyoroon, les mines okilonn

Les voyages de Deryn Naythas

Planets & Asteroids wallpaper

Type de monde : Planétoïdes rocheux

Taille : Un de Taille C, dix-sept de Taille B

Echappée : 3 rounds

Rotation : Aucune

Révolution : 1 122 jours

Lunes : Aucune

Population : 96 487 Syndarheem, 69 547 Okilonn

Trame magique : Vacuu resserrée, magie divine dominante

Si la région est bien une ceinture d’astéroïdes s’étirant sur une large ellipse autour du Vortex, Kuaj-Pyoroon est plus communément le nom donné au plus gros planétoïde connu dans le système de Dreyk. Monde aux dimensions modestes, il n’en reste pas moins un domaine convoité, où une certaine gravité assure le développement des peuples séjournant à sa surface.

L’influence du Vortex est atténuée par la distance, mais une flore singulière s’est néanmoins développée dans les entrailles de Kuaj-Pyoroon, offrant des lieux propices à la Vie. Certaines variétés coralliennes natives de Magim-Lahsaan ont pu s’adapter aux conditions souterraines et entretiennent une enveloppe d’air, cependant limité à cette…

Sea of Stars RPG Campaign Sourcebook Kickstarter

Sea of Stars RPG Campaign Sourcebook

Welcome to the Sea of Stars

The gods were thrown down and the world shattered into floating islands. The dragons now reign unchallenged under their Empress. It is a place of high magic and high adventure; where ghosts dance and trees sing, ships fly and books read their stories out loud. There are lands of secrets and mysteries; lost cities and forbidden knowledge, bound demons and dark magics.

Prepare yourself to venture out on the Sea of Stars. Explore a world of adventure without end, magic without limits, and dragons without fear.

Visit the Sea of Stars with this Adventure

For those new to the setting there is an adventure for 1st level Pathfinder characters:

Rogue Island

It is a short exploration themed adventure and includes an introduction to the Sea of Stars setting.

This Kickstarter campaign is looking to raise a minimum of $1350 to print these books for the ORL or Pathfinder systems.  More money pledged will make for bigger and better projects involving original art and more material.  They’re well on their way to the minimum goal.

Thanks to Dale “Xoriel” Norman, moderator of the Spelljammer Google+ Community, for cluing me on to this project!


Mecha in Time of Ages

Spelljammer Gone Wild

This image by deviantART artist Ignacio Bazán Lazcano would be how I would depict the steam mechs of the core worlds of SJGW’s Steampunk Spelljammer universe.

The steam mechs of the core are a little more mech and a little less magic. Such mechs are well taken care of by their handlers, although ages of warfare makes most steam mechs look less shiny. There is a darkness to how steam mechs are viewed in the core worlds. The constructs are seen as dangerous, dirty, and frightening even though they are required for the security of the Empire of Monarchs.

Steam mechs in the far reaches of the Aether (like those seen in Rielunspace) wouldn’t be as advanced as those near the core worlds. Such mechs are more magical than mechanic, and they are built for their aesthetics, especially by the Elven Flotillas. (imagine a Elven Warbird spelljammer morphed into…

Les Gnomes lunaires

Les voyages de Deryn Naythas

Gnome lunaire by derynnaythas

Le Gnome Lunaire se révèle être bien plus sédentaire que son cousin Ingénieur et comme son nom l’indique, il favorise l’établissement de petites communautés à la surface de lunes protégées par des mondes pleins de vie. Préférant les astres boisés, il est cependant possible de trouver des Gnomes Lunaires sur des lunes aquatiques ou glacées, ce peuple étant magique de nature et pouvant donc vivre en harmonie avec n’importe quel environnement.

Souvent harcelés par des peuples belliqueux, les Gnomes Lunaires ont apprit à s’attirer les faveurs de peuples comme les Giff ou les Syndarhaan, ils partagent ainsi leurs nombreuses ressources avec ces alliés et créent des liens durables avec eux. Ils ne voyagent guère au-delà de leur Sphère natale et favorisent plutôt les portails planaires et les Plans élémentaires d’où ils ramènent fréquemment d’incroyables connaissances bénéficiant à toute leur communauté.

Traits raciaux:
