Dwarf Sorcerer

The Dwarves are the greatest sorcerers in the Known World. Prestigious, powerful and secretive guilds hoard precious arcane tomes and teach those that show promise. Only a very few have the exceptional patience, precision and dedication needed to actually learn to weave spells. The rest become librarians, mentors and beards. Orgar Stormhands of Khrumîn presented on the character sheet below is one of those incredibly rare individuals with the talent to see the patterns that most are blind to.

Features of Fantasy Dice

Fantasy Dice is the roleplaying game engine that powers Crimson Exodus.

So what are some of the features that make Fantasy Dice interesting:

Super simple, but tactically versatile task resolution. Character defining characteristics and aspirations with real benefits.

Men of the Heartlands

Heartlanders

Heartlanders are perhaps the most colourful, and often beautiful, of all the peoples of the Known World. The vast size of the Heartlands have hidden the true extent of the Heartlander population and although in severe decline since the exodus it is far greater than even the Elves calculated. However, there is no sense of unity among Heartlanders and isolated villagers are suspicious of outsiders of every kind.

The central and northern Heartlands have borne the brunt of the plague and suffered greatly from the collapse of the Empire. Villages, farms and roads have been abandoned to the dead, bandits and beasts. Many . . . → Read More: Men of the Heartlands

Elven Lords

Raiki-Nikho cut deep and twisted the knife. The Elnar woman was beautiful and as her trusting eyes filled with confusion and fear Raiki felt a stabbing ache in his chest.

It was necessary and he felt no remorse. Yet, as he placed her head on the ground he was struck with a strange impulse, and kissed her lips with his bloodstained mouth.

Vren Barbarians

This is the first post to present the peoples of the Known World in the Crimson Exodus roleplaying game, as well as a sneak peak at the character sheet.

The barbarians that inhabit the frozen wilderness of the Vren peninsula have been chiseled into a fierce and mighty folk by constant struggle with brutish trolls and merciless winters. Considered simply barbarians by most they are named northmen, or Vren, by those that have grown to respect them.

Beyond the Known World

The Known World stretches from the great sprawling Empire of the Elves by the western sea, across the vast open plains of the wild Heartlands, and even beyond the Rocky Sea to the feuding Bardur Kingdoms. We call it the Known World. Yet, there are many a forest where no man has set foot. Monsters which no man has seen, and likely even more that was once known which is now forgotten.

But what you really want to know is what lies beyond. So let me tell you of the frozen north, mysterious south, ancient east and raging waters of the western sea.
