I have no idea when we'll get around to this, but we may as well put this in as a place holder.

Absolutely might as well!

A quick question for you though, what canon sources do we have for the M'kar? (Just looking for the base on which the rest is built).

The only official source is X8: Drums on Fire Mountain, and in that module they aren't even named, or given any real backstory.

That provided quite the blank canvas then didn't it?! :D

Exactly! My notes on X8 (the Teki-Nuri-Ria thread) are probably the best place to start.

Great idea! :mrgreen:

As far as the map goes - it's actually a pretty small area(which is fine). I'm wondering if it should be done at 4 or 2mph instead of 8? If we keep it at 8 the other thing we could do is work up a city map. City of the Makers... heh, that's one I hadn't actually considered until now, but it sounds pretty fun.

Alternatively, to keep your workload high, we could do an 8-mile hex map of the island, a city map, and a 2-mile hex map. :twisted:
