Not all the races have the same lifespans... Orcs and Wartoks would probably be similar to humans in that regard, maybe a bit longer lived; but succubi and giants would likely be considerably longer-lived.As for the setting I was thinking that a hundred years ADW would be long enough that everyone involved in the war would be dead
Yes, the Elder Breed is pretty much out of the picture in this case.As for dragons and such its only stated that the Elder Breed went to sleep and not all the dragons slept. Who's to say their aren't people who have learned to become dragon-riders or Bonded in an attempt to imitate the riders of legend?
This is a tricky one. Game designers don't seem to realize how long X hundred years really is.I also figured that after one hundred years the humans would have had enough time to somewhat rebuild and reorganize.
More to the point - remember that it's not just the human civilization that's been rebuilding itself... you don't think the Dark Union is going to have been just sitting on their asses, twiddling their thumbs for a hundred years, do you?As well as being recent enough for false prophets/saviors that claim to have the answers to everyone's problems.
Hmm, but what about the goblins?As for races they would be Humans, Orcs / Grull, Wartocks, Succubi, possibly Giants.
Well, most of them perished in the Dark Wars - and of those few that survived, most (if not all) got too stoned to careThe game just states that many followed Arokhs example and went to sleep also. It doesn't say that all of them did. So I think its possible for their to be a small handful of Elder Breed in the world still awake.
Hmm, but wasn't the Dragonstone a gift from the gods, granted to the Elder Breed specifically?I don't believe we very get to see someone try and Bond with a Non-Elder Breed. So its not impossible just unlikely due to the bat and crow dragons being a much lower quality. I think someone very well could Bond with these lesser dragons but with possible side effects.
Absolutely. Especially because it's the Dark Union, which was itself formed in that way.As stated above. Even the Dark Union is not immune to faction spiting and people seeking power.
That's what I meant there. Why not goblins, too? They were obviously quite intelligent, and capable of communication (at least with the other goblins; apparently they didn't speak the human languages - or at least not by 600ADW).As for the races I was mostly referring to Player Characters and what races they could be.
Right. So the fake Dragonstone creates "lesser soul gems", which can then be used to form a "fake Bond" with the lesser race dragons.But these Fake stones are a much better Idea given that they have imperfections.
The generic ways to do that would involve sacrificing other humans and/or lesser dragons; either physically, or just their souls.My plan was to also have ways for characters to gain long life but at a heavy cost without using the Bonding or stones at all.
Hmm, don't think any major civil wars would be likely in these circumstances - especially since the (new) Dark Union would represent an increasing, common threat; I can see at most just some minor, isolated power struggles between feuding factions; certainly not all-out civil wars.I haven't finalized anything yet but as we know the dragons can be corrupted. So I was thinking that one of these Old Breed dragons still running around could be a Union holdout with there own agenda. As well as some DU factions and some independent factions as well as a possible civil war between the human nobles? What do you think.
At this point it's important to maintain the distinction between the Dragonstone (the artifact, which there is only 1 of) and the Soul Gems, which were made using the Dragonstone's powers.gather real dragon stones(only 1 or 2)
Tricky.As for the independent faction(s) I was thinking of have a band of knights or warriors that have the goal of destroy all the dragons good or evil. As they see dragons as the cause of all the worlds problems.
All the way up to the Dark Wars, it was the "Age without Kings", remember?the ruling nobility want to replace the current ruler
Never played that kind of game, so it's hard for me to give a meaningful answer.So I take it Mechanist you are on board with playing once I get some more people involved?
Try our Discord server maybeI need to ensure I can find players first. I think we can use the website Roll20.com or Skype to play.
Not neccesarily true.See that the one creating these copies of the soul gems is an Elder Breed I would think that they already have an understanding of how the gems work and how to copy one.
Haha, have you watched Dragonheart (the 1st movie)? It pretty much took that idea to its logical conclusion...Perhaps it would be best if they were simply mercenaries that paraded around as dragon slayers to make themselves feel important to the local towns and villages.
Yes, but in this case they wouldn't have been kings in the usual sense - more like emissaries of the Order, who would have been accountable to their "main ruling body", however the specifics of that would have worked (haven't played TAG yet, so don't know any of that).I agree with the city states idea but even Greek city states had kings.
Well the Drakan:OOTF "Book sequence" says otherwise...Nothing says this story had to involve the whole world.
Code: Select all
By their strength and wisdom, the world was led, and peace reigned for centuries.
Lol, not a whole new server, just a single channel on the existing oneI will also make a post on Discord. Hopefully I can gain enough interest and Ill ask Arokh's Twin about setting up a separate Discord Server.
Works a lot better when you have your own dragon around, to prove your pointYes I have seen Dragonheart one of my favorite movies lol. But I wasn't even thinking about that lol. I feel it would for a good mantra to tell the villagers and towns people, especially when you need money and "other" essentials.
If it wasn't obvious, I meant back when the Order actually existed. Clearly couldn't have had kings in the "Age without Kings", right?True but at this point the Order wouldn't really be around right, save for a few people that were a part of it. But we may be talking about a few dozen or hundred people at most.
Right. Well, can't make it too global in any case - lest it begin to contradict the established timeline, or even just stretch the limits of plausibility.I mean the story I'm crafting could take place on a regional level in a somewhat isolated incident. Sure it can branch out to many areas but if the Main Bad Guy is the leader of one of these Factions working for their own agenda it would make sense that their operations are regional and not all over the globe. But the players journey can go anywhere.
