Non Earthdawn content!
When it comes to reading fantasy novels, I have to admit that this years August was a very special month for me. Because the final book of the Wheel of Time series written by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson was released in German. The publisher piper fantasy was able to make out of 14 original English books, 37 German books!!! Nevertheless I finished reading the biggest fantasy series in August……and I am really thinking about to start it anew…
As I recently had a look on what exists “out there” concerning the Wheel of Time series, I discovered a fan made movie called Flight from Shadow. Maybe you’re interested in the biggest fantasy series written by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, if not you definitely should be. Anyway, maybe you enjoy the following fan movie.
The Wheel of Time fan movie "Flight From Shadow" chronicles the events in the "Four Kings in Shadow" chapter from The Eye of the World, the first book of Robert Jordan's bestselling series.
UPDATE 8th September 2013
Scroll- design sheet
The PDF’s are based on the original 3rd edition character sheet and comes in two versions. One has the D12 dice table and the other has the D20 based dice table on it. All the fields and boxes can be edited.
At the bottom of first page are 6 fields to count whatever you need. The sheet also has five slots for elixirs, 10 slots for blood magic and it contains three big fields for discipline abilities descriptions of the character. Have a look at the two character sheets.
The Earthdawn campaign “Heroes Unchained” is written by Asaraludu and his group on Obsidian Portal and was named September ‘13 Campaign of the month (CotM).
Well, the Obsidian Portal offers a lot of features for Players and Gamemasters to keep track of the story and character progression, document events (journal) and to provide information of RPG campaigns. Functions like an easy wiki building, the compatibility with any game system, adventure tracking and all of that for free, makes it a great choice for RPG groups.
That’s the place where Asaraludu and his group document their Earthdawn campaign “Heroes Unchained” now quite for a while and as far as I can see the award for CotM is well deserved.
A very interesting interview with Asaraludu was published on the blog of Obsidian Portal “Words In The Dark”, where he provides some very interesting tips, talks about the history of the campaign and recommends some further services for virtual tabletop gaming and online sessions. Like the service Roll20.net, which was completely unknown to me since I read his interview. If you are you already using Roll20, you might be interested in the old school styled maps provided by Matt Jackson.
Finally I can only say: congratulations for the award and thanks for the great Earthdawn campaign (although I just read up on a few chapters….)
Josh Harrison has been offered and has accepted the Line Developer position for Earthdawn. I wasn’t able to find an official announcement @ FASA, but I think Josh doesn’t spread the news without reason.
I am honestly excited to read, that one guy of the “Crew” takes the position of Earthdawn Line Developer. His long relation to Earthdawn makes him a great choice and brings a fresh breeze to the Earthdawn Revised Edition (as far as I can judge...). I wish him all the best in his new position and am looking forward to further Earthdawn news, when things are ready for announcement. But for now: Earthdawn lives and maybe great things are looming @ FASA.
The “who’s who” article at FASA officially confirms the news.
