Savage Sneak Peek


Notes for my upcoming Savage Eberron game, entitled "The Jewel of Galifar" and which sees the adventurers visit Trolanport, the gnomish city of canals.

  1. Very impressive for notes only. I often find my own words and sketches easier to work off than printed pages, especially soon after they're made. Have you thought about publishing? That home-made style could be a draw. You could scan them in, give them a clear order and fill in any blanks, then put them into pdfs.

  2. I contribute to the magazine Fight On!, and they've asked in the past for scenarios in this "as-is" form, so it's been at the back of my mind for a while, but only with this batch have I thought about publishing them.

    I plan to post the scenario as a pdf after I've run it on the 8th. What I might do is post scans of these notes first, then put them into a proper document later.

    In all fairness though, these are second-generation notes, taking a brainstormed list of elements I've had knocking around for a while and putting them into some sort of playable order.

    It also helps that I've grown to write in a more location-based format. Each of these pages is one location in the scenario, with attendant events and NPCs, and very little in the way of linking material, the latter of which is easier for me to make up on the day.

    Anyway, thanks for the comment. It's given me the final nudge I apparently needed to put these in a pdf!
