Blog Moving to Keith-Baker.com!

Dragonmarks 8/9: Lightning Round 5!

It’s time for another Eberron Q&A! Let’s get right to it… Let’s say that I’ve got a player who really likes games with Nerull. How would you put him in? The Keeper? Lord of Dust? The thing about the Keeper is that you only interact with him through his cults, and they aren’t even all bad. The Restful Watch believe that Aureon and the Keeper work together to preserve vital souls from Dolurrh so that they can be returned to Eberron in a time of need; in many communities, the RW maintains cemeteries and performs funerary rites. As a result, I’d go with...

Recent News: Cthulhu Fluxx, PAX and Podcasts!

I’ve been quite busy catching up with work and settling into Portland, but I wanted to give a quick update on things that have been going on! THE CARD GAMES OF CTHULHU My latest card game, Cthulhu Fluxx, comes out on August 17th. - In developing the game, I tried to make the Mythos connection actually relevant and more than just a new hat.

Personally, I was happy to hear “Have an...

Catching Up and Fantasy Roundtable: Races!

It’s a chaotic time for me at the moment, and it’s going to be at least a week before I can get a new Eberron Q&A together. I’m still dealing with all the complications involved in moving from Austin, Texas to Portland, Oregon (let me simply say that my life is a world of boxes right now), and in the middle of that I took a trip to San Diego Comic Con, which was fantastic. Meanwhile, I’ve got lots of work projects in the air – Eye on Eberron; an expansion to Cthulhu Gloom; my still secret RPG/Fiction project; and more. So: Crazy town banana pants. Not having time...

Roundtable: The Role of the Divine

I have my own ideas on what makes for interesting fantasy. But I always want to know what intrigues other people – what YOU enjoy about imaginary worlds, whether in fiction, film, or games. I’ve got a number of projects in the works for 2012 and beyond, and hey, here’s your chance to let me know what you like. I’ve already posted extensively about the approach we’ve taken in Eberron and why, and I’m about the head off to San Diego Comic Con, so I don’t have much time to tell you what *I* think. But to give a basic foundation to the discussion, what role...

Dragonmarks: Valenar and Tairnadal

I’m in the middle of a move and have a number of projects in motion, so I’m sticking with a subject that’s quick to cover and has been discussed a fair bit recently: Valenar and the Tairnadal. As always, this is based on my campaign and vision of things and may contradict canon sources – and you are always free to take things your own way! First, let’s look to the existing online material. Dragonshards: Elves of Valenar, Part One Dragonshards: Elves of Valenar, Part Two Expeditionary Dispatches: Crossing Valenar Expeditionary Dispatches: The Walls of Taer Valaestas Expeditionary Dispatches:...

HDWT: San Diego Comic Con

I’ve got a lot of interesting projects going on right now. Cthulhu Fluxx comes out later this year, and an expansion for Cthulhu Gloom is in the works. The Doom That Came To Atlantic City was funded on Kickstarter. And I have a big RPG/fiction project brewing that I’ll be announcing later in the year. After some consideration, I’ve decided that I’d like to go to San Diego Comic Con and get a chance to play some of these games with people and talk about the projects I have in the works. Thanks to friends, I have a way to get into the convention. What I don’t have is...

Dragonmarks: Sovereign Swords and Favored Nations!

It’s a busy week. I’m traveling this week and moving from Austin to Portland next week. As a result, I don’t have time to write up a normal post this week. Instead, I wanted to throw out a topic of conversation and see what you all have to say. First, a new Eye on Eberron article went live today: The Sovereign Swords. This looks at a group of devout vigilantes who are traveling around the Five Nations and trying to make Khorvaire a better play. One of the things that  is called out is that the Swords are unusual in that they all have PC-class capabilities. One thing that isn’t...
