Yavmir Almanac: Lineages

Yavmir is an ongoing project, where Michael and Radiostorm work together to build a slavic-themed fantasy setting. More information can be found at the WoR Wiki. Continuing on the same thread as last week’s update, today I have posted some more character creation rules for Yavmir. With the monstrous races out of the way, we move along to a familiar group of creatures: Humans.  Numerous and...

Yavmir Almanac: Monstrous PCs

Yavmir is an ongoing project, where Michael and Radiostorm work together to build a slavic-themed fantasy setting. More information can be found at the WoR Wiki. RS and I have been working together on Yavmir for quite a while now, and we thought it was about time to get into the nitty-gritty of some of the rules. One of the first things we wanted to take a shot at was PC races, as they are...

Yavmir Almanac: Armour

Yavmir is an ongoing project, where Michael and Radiostorm work together to build a slavic-themed fantasy setting. More information can be found at the WoR Wiki. At the suggestion of many folks on the Paizo boards, I thought I would take some time to research a few traditionally Slavic armor-types for the world of Yavmir. Some of this equipment may be familiar to those who have played D&D and...

Yavmir Almanac: Weaponry

Yavmir is an ongoing project, where Michael and Radiostorm work together to build a slavic-themed fantasy setting. More information can be found at the WoR Wiki. At the suggestion of a few folks on the Paizo boards, I thought I would take some time to research a few traditionally Slavic weapons for the world of Yavmir. Some of these weapons may be familiar to those who have played D&D and its...

Yavmir: World Map

Yavmir is an ongoing project, where Michael and Radiostorm work together to build a slavic-themed fantasy setting. More information can be found at the WoR Wiki. It occurred to me this week that despite talking about Yavmir all the time, I’ve never actually posted a picture of the world map up on the blog. This is a rather obvious oversight, and one I intend to correct immediately. Gaze...

Yavmir Almanac: Currency

Yavmir is an ongoing project, where Michael and Radiostorm work together to build a slavic-themed fantasy setting. More information can be found at the WoR Wiki. I was growing slightly fatigued with monster development, so I thought now would be a good time to shift gears a bit and do some more generalized world building. For the next few weeks, I will be presenting some basic information about...

Unearthed Almanac: Boding Sea

Unearthed Almanac will run once weekly until I finish up some of the more boring aspects of game development (item lists, back-end coding, etc…). Enjoy! Overview The Boding Sea is a massive underground ocean, and the unlikely home of a mysterious race of bird men. Although helpful, the bird men speak in stilted sentences and have archaic traditions. Travelers must tread carefully as one poorly...

Unearthed Almanac: Scrapyard

Unearthed Almanac will run once weekly until I finish up some of the more boring aspects of game development (item lists, back-end coding, etc…). Enjoy! Overview The Scrapyard is a large cavern that serves as one of the first major “dungeon-crawls” in the game. Futuristic technology sprawls broken and unattended across the area, creating a natural maze of rubble and rusty machinery. Strange...
