Techen

August 31, 2008

The town of Techen and its castle lie within the fractured Kingdom of Rethem. Its young lord maintains neutrality in the face of a possible civil war, because war will be bad for business, and Techen is an important industrial centre. Like other S&S locations, Techen is superbly mapped and illustrated. If you enjoy gaming in Rethem, then this is for you.

GM Helper Files

August 28, 2008

Here are three useful tools that GM’s can use for their own campaigns. One is a Campaign Journal Page (.doc) and the other is a Hârnic Settlement Description (.doc). Each is one page black and white and designed to be photocopied. Of course, if the form is downloaded to your drive you could also type up your notes on the form and print them out or save them in electronic form. Another utility is the Hârnic Settlement Generator (.xls). This is not intended to be HârnManor or HârnTown. It is a pencil and paper tool for the GM to answer PC questions when they arrive in a town or village that is undeveloped.

The Kingdom of Lédenheim.

August 27, 2008

Kelestia Productions is happy to announce the release of their latest Kingdom Module, The  Hârbáaler Kingdom of Lédenheim.

The Kingdom of Lédenheim is the largest and wildest of the sub-kingdoms of the Pendragondom of Hârbáal, the great realm that dominates the northern Gulf of Shôrkýnè, and lies between that region and Ivínia. The Hârbáalers are a complex mixture of ancient Járind and more recent Ivínian settlers. The Pendragondom is relatively new, and there are ongoing debates about its future direction.

This module includes details on the geography, climate, history, current affairs, government, military forces, law, settlements, flora and fauna, economy, culture, religion, and folklore of Lédenheim.

Learn of the Lédensen Curse. Search for the legendary Hârl’s Spear. Wonder at the Witch of the Shârl.

On the edge of the wild, the Kingdom of Lédenheim awaits.
