Introducing Wyrmvoid

Update: New fantasy setting, Wyrmvoid, in the RPG section.

Two updates in a row, wow. And this one's a fairly big one. I've added material introducing an entire new fantasy setting to the RPG Resources section. The setting is called Wyrmvoid, and it is specifically designed with Dungeons & Dragons in mind. It contains all the traditional trappings of the genre, with all the standard races etc., but adds a twist or two, namely the fact that it is set in a distant future of our own solar system in which the planets have been terraformed into inhabitable worlds, some very much like our own, others much more exotic.

This means that the setting can be used equally well for both the most traditional, cliched dungeon crawling games ever and more original adventures dealing with, for example, interplanetary travel. It also means that there is an almost infinite number of possible locations for adventures as each planet, moon and asteroid is a world of its own.

Whether I'll ever use this world is still a mystery. As I discussed in an earlier post, D&D has both its pros and its cons. If I were to run a second campaign alongside Kin of Cerberos, though, this would be a strong possibility. Use it or not, it's now officially Out There. Maybe someone, somewhere will find it useful (if by some stroke of luck they'd happen to find it).
