Mortals from the Gazetteers [rolls on Mortal Ascension Table]

Post by Knightfall » Wed Apr 11, 2018 9:55 pm

I'm now going to go through all the other references I have access to, as well as details on the various GAZs I don't own using this article on VoP as a guide: NPC Level Conversion BECMI to 5e. While The World Unknown is menat for 3E, that article is quite useful in finding details about all the canon NPC from GAZs.

I'll likely not worry too much about any results I get for 0-level NPC unless I get a strange result on the roll. Most of those NPCs will either live on peacefully to old age or will suffer a violent death. I don't foresee them being raised to become Exalted or becoming Immortals. They could end up being cursed or I might choose to give those who live some class levels. I haven't decided yet.

Karameikos NPCs
Since I have access to the AD&D 2E Mystara boxed set for Karameikos, the NPCs from it are included as well. (Plus, I've included two NPCs from Joshuan's Almanac that became very important in my Kulan version of Karameikos.) The two Hyraksos heirs get a pass, as I have decided their Fates (keep reading). Since Karameikos was Sundered during the Devestation War, the NPCs that survived become refugees that are forced to settle elsewhere. Most of the surviving hins (and some elves too) are given solace in the Five Shires. The rest of the refugees fled west on ships until they eventually came to the island continents of the Farend Ocean.

However, it was mainly Traladarans who chose to make this journey. The refugees of Thyatian heritage mainly chose to head east and try to help rebuild Thyatis, which was Devastated during the war. A few did decide to follow the surviving members of the Karameikos Royal Family who lead the migration west. Both Argent and Lucien grew up on the road and at sea, which made them tougher. Their mother, Princess Adriana, rose to become an Immortal during the Devastation War and their father, Lord Devon Hyraksos, was reincarnated into an elf in AC 1051 after nearly dying at the hands of a Bleak Assassin *. Their uncle, Prince Justin was also chosen by the Immortals to become one of the Blessed although his Fate changed significantly in AC 1142 when he was reincarnated into a dragon.

Prince Lucien lived well into his nineties and died in the year AC 1103. While Princess Argent didn't have as long a life, she became a renown adventurer and hero in the eyes of her people. When she died in AC 1088, her Immortal mother chose to raise her up to become a Titan of Matter. Justin became Regent of Karameikos in exile until Lucien was old enough, in Justin's eyes, to claim the crown (AC 1030). It was Justin who founded a new kingdom in the lands that would become known to the refugees as Farend. He named it New Karameikos **. He died without any human children (although as a dragon, well, that for a later time). King Lucien had only one child who turned out to be more like his great-grandmother, Queen Olivia, but slightly sadistic too. The boy died in his mid-20s during a knife fight on some nameless dock. Princess Argent had four children in her lifetime. Two grew up on the seas and became like their grandfather, Lucius. The other two were born after New Karameikos was founded and took to Royal life with gusto.

Argent and Lucien's father continues to live on to this day; he appears to be a full-blooded elf in his mid- to late-200s. He did not remarry until after his son passed away. He and his half-elvish wife now rule a new kingdom, which King Lucien renamed after his mother on his deathbed: Adrianaos. Devon took the name King Devaenbryl after his coronation; he does not use the surname Hyraksos anymore. His wife's name is Britrine Adza. They have three children of which one is a full-blooded elf and the other two are more human. Their children are the heirs to the Kingdom of Adrianaos much to the chagrin of Princess Argent's two youngest children (and their heirs).
* Fanatical servants of the Alien Immortals.
** No date for the founding yet.

Update!

Post by Knightfall » Mon Apr 16, 2018 11:54 pm

EDIT: 1d12 (Devastation re-roll for lands Fates after being moved into Khoronus' new the Hollow World Dimension; +3 to roll)

Into the Hollow World
Devastated
Old
• Alphatia (floating island crashes to the ground) *
• Denwarf-Hurgon (becomes a Floating Island)
• Kogolor Dwarf-Lands (TBD)
• Malpheggi Swamp (swampland dries up and become barren)
• Milenian Empire (TBD) *
• Neathar Lands (TBD)
• Oltec Kingdom (TBD) *
• Wintlian Islands (sink)
* I will roll for these lands to see if specific parts of them become Floating Islands or survive in some other fashion.

Forced to become Refugees
New (lose knowledge of the outer world as time passes [within 30 to 80 years])
• Aquas = 4+3=7 (sea domes are left broken and dangerous; the people of Aquas are forced to migrate through the seas of the Hollow World)
• Ekto = 3+3=6 (lands are made nearly unlivable, which forces the people to leave; Septentriona eventually claims the region)
• Furmenglaive = 5+3=8 (lands destroyed by alien minions; lands conquered by Septentriona in the Hollow World)
• Glantri = 4+3=7 (most find solace in either the Azcan Empire or Nithia)
• Ierendi = 4+3=7 (are forced to become permanent seafarers, moving from port to port)
• Thyatis = 5+3=8 (the survivors settle in either Notrion or Septentriona; outcasts are forced to settle elsewhere [e.g. Ochalea])

Old
• Anathy Archipelago (TBD)
• Traldar Kingdoms (the Traldar are forced to migrate into the Beastmen Wastes after their kingdoms are destroyed; the Beastmen are sent back to the outer world.)

Immortal Intervention Saves this Land (but which one?)

Immortal Intervention Blesses These Lands (and they become empires in the Hollow World [if not already])
• Bay of Thorin = 11+3= 15 (TBD)
• Empire of the Great Khan = 11+3=14 (TBD)
• Notrion = 12+3=15 (conquers most of the continent of Bellissaria; most powerful citizens remember the outer world)
• Septentriona = 12+3=15 (conquers the entirety of the Isle of Dawn; most powerful citizens remember the outer world)

Major Changes to Way of Life

Old
• Brute-Men Territory (culture forced to merge with the Atruaghin)
• Icevale (TBD)

Minor Changes to Way of Life
New
• Ne'er-do-well = 8+3=11 (exists pretty much the way it did as detailed in PWA3's Alatian Islands entry)

Old
• Neartharum (TBD)
• Oostdok (TBD)
• Shahjapur (TBD)

New Culture Emerges
New (merge with an existing Hollow World culture [knowledge of the outer world fades within 4 generations])
• Atruaghin Clans = 6+3=9 (these clans move into the Brute-Men Territory and come to dominate the Brute-Men; the two cultures become intertwined, but in most cases the Brute-Men defer to the Atruaghin as more advanced beings.)
• Minrothad Guilds = 6+3=9 (forced to become privateers and have an intense rivalry with the denizens of the Merry Pirate Seas)
• Ulimwengu = 6+3=9 (TBD)

Old
• Antalian Wastes (TBD)
• Scattenalfheim (shadow elves from the outer world arrive and force major changes)

Status Quo: The people have no memory of the outer world
• Sind = 2+3=5 (The Master comes to rule Sind in AC 1200; those 'X' modules are set in the Hollow World for this campaign)
• Tangor = 1+3=4 (lands soon fall under a subtle curse)

Total Annihilation (End of Civilization)
Old
• Jennite Holdings (becomes a cursed land of undeath)

Unscathed (Immortal Intervention)
Old
• Azcan Empire
• Merry Pirate Seas

Unscathed [Plus] (Immortal Intervention)
Old
• Beastmen Wastes (the beastmen are protected by the Immortals and brought back to the Outer World after the end of the Devastation War; their Hollow World lands are taken over by the Traldar forced to leave their sundered lands.)
• Krugel Horde Territory (the horde's territory nearly doubles in size.)

Special
New (DM Fiat; sent into the Hollow World by Khoronus before his death)
• Ilioloosti (civilization florishes; new culture emerges)
• Kastelios (civilization florishes; new culture emerges)

• Ochalea (civilization stagnates; becomes decadent)
• Redstone (civilization stagnates [conquered by Septentriona]; obsessed with returning to the outer world)

Old
Nithia (TBD)
Stonehaven (TBD)
Tanagoro (is saved by the Immortal named Korotiku who dies while doing so; his essence is passed on to the land the people of Tanagoro, which allows them to continue to defeat the minions of the Alien Immortals; 6 of their citizens become Immortals tied directly to the land [they cannot leave])

Destruction Table Results [Links]

Post by Knightfall » Fri Apr 20, 2018 11:28 pm

Okay, I've been going through my results for my rolls on the Destruction Table for all the regions of Mystara. I had to go back and reorganize everything so its clear for me (and all of you, I hope). I'd had these links at the top of the previous post but they really should have a dedicated post. (Well,, I think they should. :P ) Certain aspects of how hard eastern Brun was hit by the Alien Immortals becomes quite clear in the first two posts.
This all remains a work in progress.

I've just uploaded the finished hex map for the core region of The World Unknown onto my Otherworlds blog. You can read the post here and click to see the full-sized map here.

Note that this version very different to the previous version I posted here before. I went through and rework all the borders and changed significant partso f the landscape. There are also a lot less icons on the map, although I left the ruins of the key cities, towns, and other structures from the time period of the Known World. Only the most important icons have been named.

The year is AC 1200. The Five Shires has expanded to become the Ten Shires and controls much of what was once Old Karameikos. Ostland is an ever expanding empire that now rules over much of old Heldannic Territories and parts of the Isle of Dawn. There is a New Traladara built on the bones of the old Thyatis mainland and the lands new capital is called Traldarev; these are Traladaran survivors of Old Karameikos that chose not to migrate to the new lands of the Farend Ocean. The last true vestiges of the Empire of Thyatis exit in the Thyatian Thalassocracy (and in the Hinterlands on Davania), although some descendants have created new lands on the Isle of Dawn and among the altered islands of the Sunlit Sea.

The ruined lands of Old Aengmor have become the Kingdom of Tharheim. The orcs of the old Broken Lands moved into these new broken lands soon after the region stopped smoldering (for the most part). However, Tharheim isn't a land of just orcs. Elves live there too. It is a strange alliance based on the need for mutual protection against the Dictatorship of the Broken Inferno. What was once Rockhome has become the bastion of the remaining Alien Immortals and their minions (aberrations, twisted elementals, undead, etc).

Much of the region has been turned into desert including parts of Atruaghin, Darokin, Ethengar, Glantri, Wendar. In the Great Waste, Sind is gone (sent to the 'new' Hollow Dimension). Westrourke came out of the Devastation War nearly unscathed and has expanded to become a larger kingdom. (The Barony of Cazatus is a new vassal state of Westrourke.) Redstone, however, did not fare so well. It is now called the Islands of Bloodstone and it is full of monsters and worse.

Also note that the Adri Varma region was left (almost) completely unscathed. This had to do with Immortal intervention and a whole lot of luck (and backstabbing).

Cheers!
