Hmm, I'm trying to update the first post and it keeps telling me the connection has been reset.

EDIT: And now it works. :P

UPDATE
All of the world images have been re-linked (up to the settings for Iron Heroes and Arcana Evolved). A few of the images are too big to link directly here and are provided as links that will lead to my Almagra and Otherworlds blog. The setting listed under the Otherworlds section are to be added next. Each one of those will have its own post, except for those that already have a dedicated thread on The Piazza. -KF

Otherworlds

BOTTLENECK
Bottleneck is a systemless demiplane setting that connects all my fantasy settings across all rulesets. In many ways it was inspired by Planescape and, specifically, Sigil. However, Bottleneck will be very different. It exists on its own demiplane that is connected to a dead prime material world. (No name for that world, yet) The setting is a massive planar city that is surrounded by a limited amount of terrain. There will be a huge freshwater lake, plains & forests, forbidden mountains, and a vast swampland where evil rules. There won't be any other major settlements. Only tiny hamlets.

The city itself is a massive sprawl of buildings that dwarfs almost any other planar city in the multiverse. Planewalkers often call it the Mosaic City of the Multiverse. Travelers that hate the place call it the Mad God's Melting Pot. It's citizens call it Bottleneck, The Blockage of the Cosmos. People who stay in the city too long tend to get stuck in Bottleneck, unable to leave for one reason or another. Portals to and from the planar city are few and guarded. It's easy to get in, but it's hard to get out.

Bottleneck will be the one setting that will always remain systemless. I'll likely use either Green Ronin's style of systemless format (as per the systemless Freeport book) or the All-System Catalyst format made famous by the CityBooks. Or I could create my own or not worry about noting power levels at all. I haven't decided yet.

Bottleneck doesn't have a map yet.

Actual Almagra Campaign Thread?

Post by Tellerian Hawke »

I'm sorry if this sounds like a newbie question, but I am new to this site (I'm used to EN World) and I am not yet used to the layout.

Where is the ACTUAL campaign thread for Almagra (2e AD&D) which is due to start on Saturday (Jan 09, 2016)? All I can find is the Rogues Gallery.

Thanks in advance for your help! :D I am looking forward to playing my half-Ogre! :D

I'm in the middle of building my first world. The fact that you have created several worlds, all in one lifetime, awes me.

I haven't actually created the campaign thread yet. This week hasn't been a good one for me and my chronic pain issues. Once created, the main In Character campaign thread will be in the Crystal Globe subforum. I'll put up the Out of Character thread in a moment, if you have questions.

EDIT: Here you go: viewtopic.php?f=65&t=15015

Hm. I hope 2E is very different from 3E, because in the latter, druids are far and away the most powerful spellcasters, even beating wizards unless the DM allows the absolute worst of wizard cheese.

Druids are quite different in 2E. The class has some level restrictions based on in-game reasoning. "Druids have a worldwide structure. At their upper levels (12th level and above), only a few druids can hold each level." As well, 2E druids have much more limited selection of spells. 2E druids don't have all those high end 3E class abilities, either. As well, the class isn't open to all races like in 3E. Only humans and half-elves can be druids in 2E, as per the 2E PHB.

It's the same for a lot of the 2E classes. 1E has such restrictions, as well. 3E is a very different game compared to 1E/2E. It is very wide open, which is why I like it.

to really know, you need to get a 2E PHB and read it.

Spent some time far-reaching this thread. Some very cool worlds here. For Swashtopia, how do you feel about homebrewing variants of the mount (horse) classes to bond with ships instead?

I have to admit that it has been a while since I've looked at any of my homebrewed worlds other than Almagra, World of Kulan, and The World Unknown. :oops:

And I haven't cracked the 1E in quite a while. They are stored away somewhere.

I could see such a bond, I guess, but it could also be applied to a flying creature or even a sea animal. I'll have to do a lot more research about what exists for 1E. There could already be something in an old DRAGON Magazine.

FYI, I'm going through the thread and updating some of the links. some things have changed or are going to change. Sons of Odin is now called Children of Odin. The problematic named "Oriental World" now generically called "Asian World" until I can come up with a better name for it.

I'm also going to add links for content on my Otherworld's WordPress blog for the worlds with content on there.

EDIT: Updated the broken link for Tarras.

Updated the generic "Asian World" name to be World of Swords, and I've moved it to the 3E section and created a new thread for the world.
