Hi all

Ditto. I'm curious what I can extrapolate from the text.


-"but with dawn still several candles away"-

I flooping love this phrase. Journeys that are measures in days, time measured in candles. It's phenomenal thought.


"When you understand the impossible, it changes to improbable and that means there's a chance!"

~Baroth Quagmire, built an orphanage, grew a castle in his friends home, the home did not survive the birth. Died three times and fought his way out of hell. Only player I've ever seen roll three 1% in a row.

Lots about Damara which I'm very interested in.

I love the take on Crusader and Lolibela. Equally happy about all the saints and the citadel of the white worm history.

Lots of lovely lore in here.

One thing to clarify.

St Ulrach the Twice Martyred, is this a mistake or is there more than one saint that was slain twice in Ilmater's service?

If the order of the golden cup was around in 1100 DR, is it possible that they were created around 1095 to protect the terrified populace from hobgoblins (since there was no army left to fight them and the king was gone)


A few errors to correct if you are in the mood.

1 - "whippped" on page 2, 2nd paragraph about St Dyonasis
2 - "cruely" on page 3, 2nd paragraph
3 - "Dynoasis" on page 3, 5th paragraph
4 - "Dynonasis" twice on page 3, 6th paragraph
5 - "thuis" on page 4, 1st paragraph
6 - "statments" on page 5, 6th paragraph

An author is only as good as his editor..

No, I have fat fingers. Thanks for picking that up, I’ll do the edits. Much appreciated.

Not a typo, George; when you're blooodied, you've been hit by a gusher of blood. Think the power hose of blood akin to Evil Dead movies!

Or I suppose it could be a typo after all…which is much less fun.

So, you are fixing the Poseidon / Dionysus thing by making saints with slightly different spellings of the name? Haven't downloaded yet, but does the replacement for Poseidon have ties to the sea?

Oh, and props for whoever came up with the wording on the feat. The part about not modifying the first level abilities you get is very important.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Not got as far as Poseidon yet, and unfortunately my laptop is now in the repair shop.

One stroke of genius was to provide a cult of the dragon presence in impiltur / Damara in the recent history (100 years ago ish) which nicely explains why so many cultists were around in the Rage of Dragons novels.

Particularly liked Morgan the Taciturn who is really a drunken mercenary but who has a flash of redemption in the last few moments of his life

Oh, I want to thank you guys. Saint Ireclybod took my money, claiming he was Eric with an illusion, so I'm glad you gave him some comeuppance during the writing of this product.

Those references in FR9 have bugged me for a long time and were screaming out to be sorted.

And thanks re the feat - game mechanics are never my strongpoint (as Tom Costa will attest to), so I'm glad it passed muster.

I enjoyed the depiction of St. Sollars as originally a half-dragon paladin. I always thought of St. Sollars as a human gun mage a la Pathfinder and his star as six-pointed.

Well, in H4 he kind of was that, but that was a bridge too far for me. A Texan St Sollars was stuff that made me shocked that people got paid to write stuff like that. But for the sake of some semi-consistency, I had to keep the star.

Let us hope we never get St. Kenny the Daily-Martyred.
