Quite the labor of love here. I can't imagine how many hours you have whiled away on this.

Thanx...I myself admire all the vivid details, .that I could conjure up by using Giulio's descriptions. Even though i am not content with the minor flaws....I never get the awesome style of Thorfinns work, but my work seems to grow into its own style slowly, and the minor flaws seem to belong there too...hrrrmmm...zambion wrote:Robin,
Excellent work as always.
Just love it...
Was wondering since you asked, if ever possible please consider
mapping Qeodhar? Been hoping for more detailed map for years.
Thanx...at least one that responds on my plea...
Thanx..still a lot to do.Sturm wrote:Map is impressive from what I can see so far...
Do you plan to add settlements/villages/tribes?
I believe there are other creatures mentioned in canon as living in the broken lands beside humanoids... faenare and maybe others?
The Maw of Bagni, known to the non-trolls as the Devil's Throat. Anything cast into it disappears forever. When a troll wishes to sacrifice to Bagni, it is cast into the Maw. Captives are never honored in this way, though many have begged for it: trolls are too hungry to just toss their meat away.Robin wrote:I like the idea, and the name Devils kettle, so indeed i might be able to use it with the three waterfalls to trollhattan
I hope Micky checks back in, as I think he did have some ideals, at least about the Erewan-Orcus Rex border area.Robin wrote:I tried to contact Micky, as he had primary knowledge about Erewan/Belcadiz Glantri,..also in 1 mile, so I could fuse these together, but haven't heard anything as of yet.
I know that Stone, Hill, Cyclops, Cyclopskin, and at least 2 cloud giants have there business here, but havent placed thgem yet.
The stone giants seem best on the Eastern side, the Hill giants West of Belcadiz.

While there are few societies more chaotic and profane than Trollhattan, it does rarely happen that a troll transgresses against whatever trolls consider sacred. The punishment is to be cast alive into the Maw of Bagni. This is one of the only things a troll fears, and such events are vanishingly rare, so they could be counted on the fingers of one hand. Actually it may be that trolls just can't keep track of more than that. But this horrible fate is told and re-told in gurgling whispers throughout Trollhattan as a warning. Trollish legend is that Bagni himself lies in the depths and swallows all the water and anything in it.
I hope indeed that Micky responds (please, please...respond )...As his Glantrian works were awesome, and I'd like to use that input in the border regions of the Broken Lands too...just similat to the Canolbarth were I had to use a lot of Darokin.Gecko wrote:I hope Micky checks back in, as I think he did have some ideals, at least about the Erewan-Orcus Rex border area.
I put small Hill Giant bands in upper Ogremoor (independent of Alebane, but some will join on raids sometimes with the Ogres) (about a hundred individuals total)
At one point I went through and wrote out where all the minor hordes listed on page 39 are, would that be of any interest to you?
Also, for the Ogremoorian language, I've been using a sort of Hindi-Urdu / Persian mix, so for example The Bone Crushers are Hasthi kuchal, in the ogremoorian language, the Troll Grinders are Raakshasy chir-ho, The Hook Flayers are Ankuda shlax, Leg Breakers are 'Azig bhankak, etc. (of course only the last of those is in upper Ogremoor)
I agree with Robin, this is excellent....Mike wrote:The Maw of Bagni,
I'll start another thread on it when I get some time- unfortunately the information (other than the Ogremoor stuff) is spread over several files on my computer in several different iterations so It will take some time to collate, and time is very short right now.Robin wrote:Of course I would be interested in the Minor hordes, especially if you have ideas on locations.
Actually, I largely use Google Translate, and then mash words togetherThe Language is good, I;ll inform you when I work on Ogremoor, for help in the translation...my Ogrish isn't that good, and Google translate does not support Mystara tongues either
