Kalas Fit?

Post by Snoring Rock »

Ok, I am thinking of getting Kalas the city suppliment. If anyone has it already, do you think it would make a good stand in for this? Or would Loona from Kingdom of Kalamar be better?

1309 ANTIL (Large Town): Conventional; AL N; TL
4; 3,000 gp limit; Assets 439,500gp; Population 4,688
(Able bodied 1,172); Mixed (humans 78% [mostly
Antillian, some Dorin and other], half-elf 9%, elf 5%,
hawk folk 3%, others 4%); Resources: Market. Authority
Figure: Galgod the Hewer, male Antillian N Ftr4. Important
Characters: Panthal, male Antillian NG Clr9 (high
priest of Shang Ta); Revlat Adon, male Antillian LG Clr5
(high priest of Aladantle); Valdar, male Tharbrian N Ftr8
(captain of the Antil Guards); Septor Altor, male Antillian
CE Rog8 (sheriff of the bazaar and the head of the
Underlight Guild); Zaxamos, male Antillian LN Alc6
(keeper of the royal gardens); Basham the Trader, male
Dorin CE Ftr3/Rog3 (brass merchant and adventurer).
The Temple of Shang Ta, the sky god dominates Antil.
The customs and rites of the faith of Shang Ta permeate the
daily life of the town. The king is but a servant of the god and
is oath bound to obey the dictates of the priests. Antil was
founded on a good harbor near sea cliffs that were the home
of the Sky-Wall colonies of the winged race of windriders. In
the early years, the windriders and the humans of Antil
became allies. Every year the king of Antil leads the priests
in a ceremony welcoming the windriders back in the fall and
then later in a ceremony wishing them farewell in the spring.
When the king dies, the priests choose several candidates
for the kingship including one chosen by lot from the
general populace. The candidates are presented to the
windriders at that year’s welcoming ceremony and the
windriders’ high chief selects the candidate who is to be
king. At the last presentation Valdar and Galgod the Hewer
were among of three candidates presented. To everyone’s
surprise the high chief choose Galgod to be king. Ever since,
Valdar has resented Galgod and has formed a conspiracy to
overthrow him. Antil has always been an ally of the elves of
Actun and deeply resents the interference of the World
Emperor in the Red Reavers situation (City State). Notorious
slavers, the Antillians consider other races to be fit only
for servitude. They are disarmingly polite and quick of
tongue, master merchants, seasoned seamen and cunning
thieves all in one. Their laws only tolerate the open worship
of good or neutral deities (but often turn a blind eye towards
conveniently hidden evil). There are temples to Aladantle,
Athena, Dorak and Manannan. The bazaar is a walled
community of its own, where gates are shut every evening
and Dorin bowmen patrol the walls. The Underlight Guild,
a society for thieves operates from beneath, its halls as
opulent as a palace. Basham the Trader has discovered it on
his own and regularly sneaks in through his shop’s basement
to steal valuables.

I sure could do it pretty easily.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

I have not picked up a copy of this book. Like you mention Mr. Slumbering Stone, this is the type of supplement that if I do decide to purchase will probably come at GenCon.

I don't have this resource. Maybe I should consider it more stringently.

While I have not finished reading my copy there are a lot of similarities. It's on the water and about the same size. There is a large mix of races in Kalas and what seems to be a smaller percentage of humans, but there are a lizard race nearby not an avian race. There is a creative thieves guild operating within the city. One thing I can say is that Kalas is pretty well fleshed out in terms of the city with people and places well covered. There are also lots of opportunities for adventure both within and out of the city walls. Hope this helps.

As I said in my opinion post I wrote about this a couple of weeks ago, Kalas is a population of about 8,000. As I said above, I could make use of it for the city above. Some obvious changes would have to be made to accommodate some of the differing creatures, name conventions, etc... but nothing I would consider difficult.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.
