Thanks for coming over Dion.
MidwayHaven wrote:I'll be posting some of the stuff I left out in the "Worlds of Ravenloft" book on the blog soon. The two domains mentioned are named Mubonyete and Hiva Moruatu (African and Polynesian, respectively).
I wonder how well Mubonyete would work with Nyambe or Aesheba: Greek Africa.
I don't recall seeing any Polynesian campaign settings before. I think that is an underrated part of the world.
MidwayHaven wrote:The Norwegian one which is still unfinished is named Valaegir (to say it's Norwegian is perhaps a misnomer on my part; it's more Norse and Viking-themed).
Oh, well. We had some fun at Havard's expense.
Viking stuff sounds good. Are you going for some sort of alternative-Ragnarök
environment where Jörmungandr
has transformed a more normal Nordic area into a Ravenloft domain?
I think that Kobold Press might have created the Midgard Campaign Setting after your original download was created. Maybe you should talk to Wolfgang Baur, in case you could turn any Valaegir stuff into something he can incorporate into the Midgard product line and sell commercially.

The Human Centipede!
I've heard about that film, but not actually seen it. I'm not too sure how that might work as a RPG.
At least I understand why I couldn't figure out that forth domain before.

The Piazza has been adding bespoke forums for different D&D (and sometimes non-D&D worlds). Rokugan does not have its own forum here yet, but it is discussed in the Oriental Adventures forum, and one day I hope it will
get a forum here. We all add a "[Rokugan]" tag to the front of any thread titles and if you want to find them, this special search link for threads with Rokugan in the title
will bring up every thread posted here so far.
