The Last three weeks have talked about the fundamentals of magic, how it exists, how the world at large is suffused with it, and how spellcasters tap into it. This week I want to talk a bit about all the categories that a spellcaster can think of magic in.
Tour de Cryx Caster #1 – Scaverous Mid Set Thoughts
I’m very likely to make it a pattern, because I like patterns, of writing about the caster after I hit the three game mark, as it gives me time to think on the list that I settled on and see how it has panned out over a few games before trying to tweak it majorly. So, What do I think After Three games of Scaverous?
This weeks Topic covers the nature of magic as used by the spellcasting classes and beings in the world. We’ve set the stage, now, for a world properly structured, infused with a number of types of magic, and populated with all sorts of creatures and plants. Today, we move forward with examining the way that people would interact with magic.
On Feb 4th, I played in my first tournament of the year, and I was stoked going into it. I’d not played in a competitive environment since around December, and I was looking forward to putting Scaverous on the table for the first time. I’d paired him with Skarre 2, because I knew a friend of mine was not going to be at the tournament, so the chances of a lethal Kara Sloan list was pretty low. It was a quick three rounder. Each rounds recap after the break!
Last week, I talked about the way that Foundational, Primal magic would be explained, in a general sense, in a campaign world. Now, I want to take a look at two additional primal methods of magic, the Biological and the Elemental
I decided that I would let the community interact with my list building, and this is what I’ve gotten. After the Poll that ran for a week, The Largest percentage of the populous picked, surprising no one familiar with the internet, Sturgis 2.
The first two sections in the series covered the basic tenants of building the foundation of a world, the building blocks upon which you will place the adventures, the nations, the villains and the heroes. That isn’t the last part of the foundation, though. There is a portion that is unique to fantasy worlds and raises interesting questions, playing with the basic concepts of the world as we know it: Magic. Lets take a realistic, fantastic look at magic!
Every once in a while, the timelines of when I am going to do events and when I write won’t exactly mesh. During those times, I’m just gonna try and write up what I need to and get it out. So, here we go! Scaverous – First Look.
I dunno whether or not I want to keep doing these as Tour de Cryx, or Necrotechs Workshop. I figured I’ll just write Necrotechs workshop topics on Thursdays, and splice it in with Tour de Cryx when they seem good. This week, its kinda of a mix, as I break down what I liked, didn’t like, and can’t seem to get right about Goreshade 1. Come on in!
