[D&D 5e] Troll Lords Announce 5e Players Guide to Aihrde

Post by Tim Baker » Sun Jul 08, 2018 5:00 am

In a live Q&A, the fine folks at Troll Lord Games announced that they're getting ready to launch a Kickstarter for the 5e version of the Players Guide to Aihrde. They didn't talk about content, but I would anticipate that it will provide options that are similar to those offered in the Castles & Crusades version:
  • Variant Rules
  • Combat
  • Languages and Literacy
  • The Peoples of Aihrde
  • Classes
  • Races
  • Equipment
  • Coins and Money
  • The Economy of Aihrde
  • New Weapons
  • Spells
  • Blood Runes
  • The Gods
  • Guilds
Are you excited for a 5e version of the Players Guide to Aihrde? Do you think this will grow the popularity of the setting? Will we need an Aihrde forum that's separate from the C&C forum in the future?

Nice to see Aihrde getting more exposure! :)

Is there anything about this setting that will make it especially interesting with 5E?

Same question. What makes this setting not just another generic tolkienesque fantasy setting

Facebook is telling me that is a dead link. :?

I did a search and this post here seems to be suggesting that the video was posted in the Castles & Crusades Group. That's a locked down group, so if the video is in there, it would explain why I can't see it.

I only see two topics, at the moment, but it's a start. The forum for Pathfinder RPG has not managed to split into two (to create a Pathfinder Campaign Setting forum)...yet. If Castles & Crusades could jump past it and "give birth" to a Aihrde forum that would be impressive. :)

You're right, it's a closed group. I don't think there's a way for non-members to access the video. Sorry about that.

The Kickstarter recently launched. I started a thread about it over here.
