Welcome to our Development Masterpost! This monstrosity is a compiled list of Æther Void’s development posts, narratives, and other fun posts we’ve been throwing into the void since 2018. Our latest update will always be featured in this masterpost. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them in the comments or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
𝐃𝐞𝐯 𝐏𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝟏𝟎𝟕 – Breaking Down One of the Rules What do you do if you run out of HP, or mana, or in our case: Æther Points? How would you deal with it mentally? In the Æther Void game system, we decided that it’d be realistic to have a character break down. But how would it affect your character? Because evidently, no one is the same. Would they have panic attacks? Abuse substances? Start hearing voices? In our one-shot, you can already experience what we call Breakdown Behaviour. It is one of the things we’ve been finetuning for Return of the Ancients and the second one-shot adventure.
If your current TTRPG character would break down, what do you think their behavior would be?
Every week we’ve been sharing one of our original one-shot characters with their updated art and information. Today, we’ll bring you up to speed with the first three characters that’ve been thrown into the void once more. You can find their character sheets and more in our free one-shot adventure Return of the Ancients.
‘Fix-It’ Maybelle is a werewolf mechanic. A support ranged and support melee mechanic who carries a secret that could get them killed in these parts of town.
When you choose to play Blossom, a long rest will definitely be interesting. Dryads sleep by rooting in the soil and turning into an actual tree, which leaves them quite vulnerable at night. It’s needed, however, because dryads get their water and nutrients from the soil at night. At least you won’t have to worry about carrying rations too much.
Ding Lin-Lin is a human undercover agent, who specializes in high-tech, ranged weaponry and trapping. They treat others with respect until some do something to lose it. Lin-Lin feels like kicking ass and will kick down doors before even having a second thought about it. Which is nice to do so for the good guys, you know, but really, it’s all about the action.
Who would you pick from these three characters?

Everyone from the team wishes you happy holidays, and an amazing 2021! This year has been rough on all of us, and we are hoping next year will be better. With more tabletop roleplaying games, friends, and snacks (and the occasional drink). Don’t be afraid to channel your inner dwarf maiden during the holidays. We deserve it. 😉
It got out… We couldn’t contain it. It never asked to be made, and now it remade itself. It was supposed to fix things. It was supposed to weld parts together for us. It peacefully hung from the ceiling, moving back and forth on the same tracks. Now, look at how it welded itself together and set foot on the ground. Taking its place among us.
We’ve had a blast at Spiel last week. Met some amazing people and watched and played stunningly brilliant games! Handing out flyers and we’re going to make sure to have a stand next year. This first picture is an awkward mandatory groupphoto of when we arrived.
We’ve met Nigel Matthews of GamesQuest and the creator of the game PetEvil, Joseph Liano. They had some very valuable and insightful info for us and we’ll be sure to stay in touch with them. Be sure to check them out (PetEvil is currently on kickstarter!)
Another gem we found was Cubicle7 with a The Lord of the RingsRPG, the books were gorgeous and something we really aspire to have when we launch Æthervoid.
The visit to Spiel really got our gears going and with added passion we’re diving headfirst back into things!
