Re: A-Series Supplemental Material

The title is "The Dungeons of Aufstrag" and it is subtitled "Umbrage Saga Part 3. Inside, it says Adventure Modules A13-A17. I'm presuming the box set you mention will take this and add material like the one for A0-A5 did?

Re: A-Series Supplemental Material

Heh, KotB has a reputation in our group for being the place where the dungeon was less dangerous than the road to get there. :D So, I have a book for Aufstrag, is that the adventures you mentioned? I didn't realize an A13 box coming. I gather that I need to add additional material to fill in between...

A-Series Supplemental Material

Hi, I've been looking into what I might run as a first C&C campaign and I'm considering the A-series. I bought a bunch of modules on sale a while back and I have A0-A12 as well as the PDF of the Umbrage Saga boxed set and the Umbrage Fragments PDF. I'm wondering if anyone has anything to recommend i...

Re: Shadows of a Green Sky Character Sheets

I just checked my PDF copy again and it doesn't have them. It goes to p12 and then just has the back cover.. I bought it from the Troll Lords store about a year ago (judging from all the things I have from that date, it must have been one if their big discount sales). I wonder if excluding the chara...

Shadows of a Green Sky Character Sheets

Is the PDF with the character sheets for Shadows of a Green Sky still available? http://www.trolllord.com/cnc/downloads/shadowsofagreenskycrs.pdf seems to be a dead link now. I own the actual PDF of the module, but the character sheets are missing from that. Alternately, does anyone know where I can...

Modules set in Aihrde

So, another question: I know some of the TLG modules are set in Aihrde. Is there a list of modules and locations somewhere?

Thanks!

Re: Aihrde/Earth Cultural Equivalents

That's more the kind of thing I was looking for. i was just curious if a list like that existed. Some of them are obvious and others less so and I was curious to see how others interpreted them. Thanks!

Aihrde/Earth Cultural Equivalents

Looking over the big map, there are a lot of place names that strongly imply they were inspired by a particular Earth culture. For instance, you've got German names all over the place (Aachen, Augsburg, Hanse Cities and Ruineland for instance), more Norse ones (Trondheim, Eisenheim), French (Avignon...

Re: Castles & Crusades What's Next

Short adventures loosely tied to Aihrde might get me to pick up the new Codex. We talked at Gary Con about trying plot point campaigns like Savage Worlds uses (as an example, check out 50 Fathoms ). I think plot point campaigns based in Aihrde could be awesome. Take a small section that hasn't been...
