South Meadows

Set in the Known World of Crimson Exodus, South Meadows is a prosperous Bardur Kingdom surrounded by dangers and weakened by rebellion. To the west war is brewing along the border, while to the south pirates and privateers bleeds trade all across Blood Bay.

YouTube Presentation on the Peoples of the Known World

The second YouTube tutorial on the Crimson Exodus roleplaying game is now available. In this episode Elvira takes a stroll through the Heartlands talking about the different peoples of the Known World.

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. But the pain was muted and the woman’s blood was already flowing into his sacrificial cup. So he drank deeply and from his lips poured the incantation he had recited countless times.

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.
