On Far Haven, dryads dwell in nature, and you will find them in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Including Dwarvenkind dryads! Female dwarves are known to have a bit of stubble (or full-grown beards), and those genetics aren’t excluded in the gene pool when a dryad finds herself a male Dwarven mate.
Half-human, half-snake, the Lamiae are feared, ridiculed, and avoided by the general population of Far Haven. However, they are respected by rulers for their cunning and information networks. So it’s not unusual that they get hired by nobility to advise them, just like the Lamia depicted in the art.
The Lamia is one of Æther Void’s playable races. In our free one-shot Return of the Ancients, you can play as a Lamia as well. Download the one-shot here on our website to discover more of its unique abilities!
So yeah, Dwarves don’t care for gender, they all look alike and they all like it hairy \0/ On the SciFi end we have decided to base robots on Isaac Asimov’s famous Three Laws of Robotics to keep humans safe.
Today we defined the core book layout and the 15 preset playable classes for Far Haven (fantasy) and discussed how the critters should visually differ for the Abominations (Far Haven), Demon mutations (Victoria), and alien fauna (Sleeping Dragon).
After our internal playtest it was time to hit the mages with the nerf-bat and we spent the whole working session doing so. But it is done. Magic should now be balanced…. It should… really…
Our heroes encountered an evil mage at the top of a 15 meters tall tower, and how does one kill a mage? Well apparently, you just use a massive windblast to blow out the wall of the tower, with the mage alongside it. Queue gravity!
This playtest, Gunnar was impressed by our party of heroes(?) and hired him to help him with his kidnapped daughter. It turns out, Lamia were involved, and as the party convinced Gunnar to lend him half of his guards to go out and investigate, Gunnar was robbed by the same Lamia! Poor Gunnar! What will the players do next?
P.s. How did Earl end up with those fancy clothes?!
Yes, we know now! Our vamps and wolves can create others, and it is going to be totally messy! Also, we completely reworked magic to work the same in the Steampunk and Fantasy world even though they both think it works totally different. Looking forward to the moment when these worlds collide.
Our (anti)heroes met each other in The Feisty Barmaid in Old Harbour Town where they helped Feisty out with clearing her cellar of abomination rats. After all, what is a first playtest of a new RPG without a rat infested cellar? ^_^’ The fight was brutal, with many rat-bits flying everywhere. Yes, Æther Void is brutal, and combat is deadly (and let’s not mention magic!)
