    P&D New Culture: Suebian

    I've started working on the Suebian and the Holy Faliscan Empire of the Suebian Nation. As indicated above, they will be loosely built based on the Holy Roman Empire which means there is both a decentralized and a centralized power (Local Nobles and the Empire), both a small Imperial Army and Regional mustered Army and a small navy (20 or 40 ships). Based on the Era, I's still working on the basics both skills and culture, the Unique class is a bit trickier, not that it is hard to do, but more on what cultural element I want ot focus on (currently debating between Artillery or Clergy). Below are links to my work documents and Any feedback will be appriciated. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HHaaqIwrtJRFeZbTdSGQIYc3qDn-k2DR/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WfT5_MOOb-LkgCVVlQRShk-da7B5E8H-/view?usp=sharing

    P&D New Culture: Suebian

    The First draft is completed: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WfT5_MOOb-LkgCVVlQRShk-da7B5E8H-/view?usp=sharing It has the Suebian as a Culture "package", some information about the Empire and the Imperial Musketeer (on page 3). I've tried ot make it as thematic and balance as possible and any feedback and suggestion would be appreciated.

    P&D New Culture: Suebian

    Well I Haven't forgotten about this, but life. I still need to write it down, but I've came up with a few ideas for this one. The Suebian unique class I've cooked up is the Imperial Musketeer. Members of the Imperial Army, The Musketeer for an elite troop of line infantry skilled in the used of the musket. While they fight mainly on foot, they are also trained in mounted combat as well as skirmish tactics. This gives them a degree of flexibility on the battlefield not often seen in other troops. Obvisously it's still a rough draft, but gives a general ideal of what I'm aiming for for them.
  4. I know I'm a bit behind but I recently bought Secrets of Los Angeles, which I enjoy a lot. In Chapter 5, they refer to a map for the San Fernando Valley...which is not in the book. That's a bit of a bummer and I was wondering if this missing map had been added to the PDF or if it could be found somewhere else (net, blog, other book)? Any help would be appreciated.

    Cthulhu Dark Ages cancelled?

    English expression, meaning pushed towards the back to be dealt with later, postponed. Imagine ehen you are cooking and put stuff on the back burner of your stove at low heat to keep them warm, so you can get back to it later once you are ready.

    Just how big is Massachusetts, anyway?

    Chug-Niggurath perhaps

    Oh I see. Better this way then for immersion purpose. You could do San Francisco to Panama City or Valparaiso (Chile) by ship in the 1920s. And from there go to Lima. It would be simpler. Or New York to Colon (Panama). Take the canal to Panana City and onto Lima..

    That's something I didn,t know (not a native English speaker) and that's good to know. Jameson's Brook it is than.

    Thanks To Toadmaster's map of 1920's Massachusetts, I've decided to put Jameson's Creek Northwest of Dunstable, near the New-Hampshire's border. Now to flesh that little sucker of mine.

    Actually, I wasn't even thinking of marble (or granite), I was thinking more either like for cement or just crushed stone. Lots of possibilities is always good. And your right, I can pretty much put it anywhere we want and most people wont be the wiser.

    Sweet thank you, that's pretty handy. It's an idea for a small forgotten community about midway between Dunwich and Arkham, between a small river and forested escarpment with a quarry where most of them work since the early 1800s. Old Megalith and cave system under the quarry are part of it too.

    Just how big is Massachusetts, anyway?

    Back in '01-'03, there was a Dunkies just off of Dong-A University's Hadan Campus in Busan (South Korea). Those were the good day. Not sure if it's still there though as I'm back in Canada. Now of I can be so bold as to piggyback on this topic with my own Massachusetts question. What kind of quarry could (potentially) be found between Dunwich & Arkham? And would/could it be close to the Miskatonic River or would it be further North, near New Hampshire?

    Call for Submission for the Arkham Gazette - 'Curios'

    Hmm I got something (a journal) that might work. I'll mull it over a bit. Any particular deadline?
  16. Quick little FYI before starting, while looking around yesterday I'ver noticed that the Cakebread & Walton main website was closed (Suspended Account to be more specific). Long story short, for next year (May 2019), I'm considering running a Pirates & Dragons game for Cangames 2019. I'm planning a Small group of Gaul Privateers exploring an island with the usual problems that goes with it. What I was curious to know is: 1) Any chance that "Island of Tortuga" would be out by then? Although not mandatory, It would help flesh out some element of the adventure. 2) A bit of a Hail Mary, but has the P&D Character Sheet been translated (un)officially into French? I'm planning ot do one running in English anfd one in French and that would help

    Other cultures in Pirates & Dragon

    Just curious to see if anyone had created new culture/Nations for P&D? If so, on whom did you based them and what did they ended up like. Right now, I'm considering adding the Suebian (base on mid to late era Holy Roman Empire) to my setting. They would not be a great naval power (they would have a small navy of say 20 to 40 ships), but for Deserters, Disgraced Officer or Settlers it could work well.

    A Couple quick questions about Pirates & DRagons

    Well, start your Cangames budget...it will happen (one running in each of Canada's Official Languages)...oh and bring friends too: The more the merrier! And I usually go for tables of up to 8 players, and if the request is there, I might do a third running in English. I just need to take time this weekend and prepare my rough draft and the write like the Dickens over the next few months.

    A Couple quick questions about Pirates & DRagons

    Ouch, tough year indeed. Well at least I glad the operation went well and wish Ken a quick recovery (my family has been struck with cases of cancer, so I do understand fully). And quite understandable things got behind, but for those wonderful product, I can wait no problem...it just gives me more time to think about and write down my adventure seed. Worse case I can always do my own French character sheet, I'm actually pretty good at it (however if you were to have a character sheet in Word format that would be easier for me to translate than a PDF). Sounds like fun, and if only I were closer, I'd be tempted (unfortunately, I'm in Canada and my computer is about 15 years old...so most video/VTT options are not always reliable). Regards, André

    Question about cthulhu dark ages

    I would recommend the Dark Crusades Monograph. It basically covers the Holy Lands and the crusades, so you might be able to find what you need there. And I known Saracean are covered there.

    Antagonists for 7e

    As promised, I've done a quick translation of the 2 pages that convers NPCs in the French corebook for 6th editon Call of Cthulhu. Giving you the 3 motheds to create an NPC, a bit of a definition for each of the category. a Table for the Average NPC stats. as well as a breakdown of the French skills category (as the Englich character sheet doesn't use that system). Below is the result, a nice little, easy to use (I hope), 4 pages Word document. NPC.docx

    Antagonists for 7e

    Yeah, I think it is something that was specific to the French edition, in all cases, I'm working this weekend, but I'll send you the full details on Monday.

    Antagonists for 7e

    The French Call of Cthulhu 6th ed had an interesting mechanic for this. I don't have my book handy but NPC were divided in 3 tiers. Basic NPC would get a name, profession, 1 or 2 line description and maybe an exceptional Skill Ex: Pierre, 26 French pilot, a veteran of WWI, Pierre is a adrenaline junkie (pilot 70%). Moderate NPC have stats (usually average), a description and the stats are given broad percentage for example: Social 50% Influence 25% Knowledge 25% etc. Major NPC would be fully develop just like a PC. If you are interested, I could dig up my book and give you the exact details.
