Unboxing Video: Midderlands Great Lunden

I’m super excited!

Random Things: Midderlands Names/Occupations

With the kind permission of Glynn Seal from Monkeyblood Design, I’ve plugged the name/occupation table from page 217 of the first Midderlands book into Chartopia to create an automated version of the table:

Random Things: Goblins of the Bileward

I’ve been lucky enough to have a sneak preview at a writer’s copy of Glynn Seal’s excellent Greater Lunden book (and let me tell you, you’re in for a treat when you get your hands on it).

In addition to putting the second season of our Rose of Westhaven Midderlands campaign on Youtube (you can find links here) I have decided to make the audio available in Podcast form as well for people who can’t–or prefer not to–sit and watch long Youtube videos.
S02E01 Introduction
Introducing the players and characters for the second season of our game.
S02E01 Part 1
In which a group of church hunters are drawn to the sleepy village of Otterdale by rumours of strange coins and ruins.
S02E01 Part 2
Our group of hunters press on into the subterranean depths of the Goman fortress.
S02E01 Part 3
Fresh from facing the horror of the fortress, the crusaders return to the village of Otterdale to relax and spend their hard-earned money carousing.
In this adventure we’re playing through the pre-release version of Behind the Walls and adventure that Glynn Seal (from Monkeyblood Design) and myself have been working on. Many thanks to Glynn for his excellent layout/graphical work and for allowing me to use the maps in this actual play. As of the time of writing, Behind the Walls will shortly be available in PDF and softcover format.
