Hastur

Hmm, what’s that..? ..the political arrangements of the bronze city.. well for such non-encapsulated catechization Hastur must rejoin with most assiduous chronicle!
..well let us begin by excogitating on the districts and their wards..

I would put on Lucius's birthday, but I doubt he knows it.
Check out my blog, it's about gaming

Hastur

..and here somewhere a treatise on it... <shuffles through some disorganised looking stacks of papers before producing some cleaner parchment.

[OOC: this is intended to be a finished "Website extra" document, so please proof read for us with a critical eye and let us know your thoughts]

Well the format certainly looks professional... Who did it for yer ;)

It's hard to read through it without "player knowledge" of the setting if you know what I mean

pfft all our own work borders, skylines, an all!  :P

But yeah is OK on the player knowledge thing, It's gonna be a 'download as a freebie if you want to' thing, so I imagine the only folk that would be interested in it would be those who were playing in a campaign in the city anyway.

It's amazing the templates you can find for things on the interwebs ;)

Fair enough. Looks good to me at the moment, maybe needs a couple more "Silver Sash" examples who haven't been sacked lol

And maybe a bit more insight into the "ideal v reality" of the situation

I'm sure it is for those without the know-how to do it themselves!!  :P
..but no seriously - we're wary of copyright infringement, so we're doing such stuff ourselves, hence our desire for hugsies of an artistic persuasion that have spare time to make yourselves known to us please!!  :D


Fair enough. Looks good to me at the moment, maybe needs a couple more "Silver Sash" examples who haven't been sacked lol -  ;D yeah well Bronwyns the only other one I can think of at the mo and after her recent tirade she might be joining Nik and Pio!  ::)

And maybe a bit more insight into the "ideal v reality" of the situation - Noted thank you

Thanks.

In all honesty, its really a proof-of-concept document and so mainly aimed at our existing players. With a little tinkering (I'd probably split it into two seperate docs for general consumption) though, it would work better, I think. There's probably a companion-peice needed about watch cartels and umbrucs.

I like "Ideals v Reality" -- might make a good sidebar for a lot of things...

Next week: Trial, Imprisonment, and Execution through the eyes of Nikanef ;D
Dan: A title of honor for respected men, equivalent to Master or Sir. Any of 12 levels of proficiency at the grade of black belt in martial arts such as judo and karate. An expert or expert level in shogi and other such games. He that judges.
