  1. Hey all. Long time creeper, first time speaker here. Like most of us here, I think, I'm a nerd. I built Lego models when I was a kid, computers when I was in highschool, and I've been playing D&D for years now (longer than I've been reading Sanderon's works, in fact). I've always loved the freedom that comes with tabletop RPGs like Pathfinder and D&D, so I've brought it upon myself to find a way to merge these passions of mine with the works of the Cosmere into a single, fun-to-share project. Enter: The Cosmere Universe Guide. A mostly brand-new set of rules and character options for D&D 5e. I've been working on this project off-and-on for the better part of a year now, and while I've made a great deal of progress, I'm starting to hit a wall in some areas. That's why I'm here now; Who wants to make a game? While I personally have no idea how, say, a spren's decision to bond a radiant works, I'm willing to bet that there's someone on here who's made it their life's goal to figure out the most minute of details. Right now, I'm struggling to flesh out one of the new classes; the Allomancer. I'll post a link to the WIP document, so you can see what I'm talking about. As you can imagine, writting a class with 16 sub-classes, based on a magic with strict rules we don't fully understand is a little difficult. Any ideas or suggestions for new class abilities or changes to existing powers are welcome, and I'd love to hear what everyone thinks about an actual full-scale Cosmere RPG! Thanks AllomancerWIP.pdf
  2. The following is the information and discussion thread for what I hope will become a fun role play set in the world of the fantasy novels I am working on. Paidiá is a world divided into three continents with the majority of these having the climate and wildlife of the Mediteranian. There is no map as yet so players will have a heck of a lot of freedom with descriptions. The premise in essence is that Gods do exist in a complicated hierarchy and they have their own creations such as types of plants, bodies of water, death, dirt, and human concepts ie love. Pretty much anything you can think of, there was a god for it. Each God also made a tribe of people who were reflections of their God and had some powers over their relative God's domain. The people did not live in peace at any time, as the Gods themselves were fickle and fought with each other (basically think of any story of Egyptian or Greek pantheons) to try to assert dominance over one another. The Gods gave their people reincarnation, in which all their memories and knowledge of skills were retained after death. But this re-birth cycle was limited to 5 lives so that the people would not someday compete with the Gods. However, the Gods did not want all people from other tribes to die, because when no one remains of a tribe, the God dies with it and its power or essence or whatever is released and strengthens the remaining gods of that type. (For an example, the God of the Rhine river dies, the God and people of the neighbouring river had greater strength of control over all water then before.) This is also because the people no longer have to fight for the resource and can focus on breeding and building up their little village. The people grew smarter with the way they used their powers as weapons and over time there came to be only 9 Gods left (as yet un-named); Moon, life, animals, fire, water, minerals, air, sun, and nature. There were appointed great generals who could directly commune with the gods. In this RP there will be no ridiculously op powers such as being able to blow up a whole city but I am sticking in the novels to what seems to be Brandon's deal of set rules about the magic and if you want to be clever and be op by manipulating the world within the logical confines of the rules, go nuts. In the blowing up a city scenario, you might have control over fire in a limited range because there is as yet only a small number of people in their tribe and so the Gods' power is not as large as if two tribes worshipped him. In other words a God's power is equal to the number of people who worship it, which explains the God death. So a limited fire user could either torch some woven baskets and start a house fire, or collaborate with another tribe to discover a natural gas pool under a city and set that on fire, to blow up everything. There are alliances that can be made, and pretty much no limit to who you can play (Gods are ok, I would be interested in what you could do with that) or what powers you have, just talk about it with me first to check that it fits in world. (Voidus can also be asked, as he has heard way more about it than he probably wanted to haha) I know that is a lot of info (I'm not sure I summed it up very well) so I can answer any questions at all, as I have probably missed heaps of info. But the spirit of this thing is, I hope, a sandbox with cheats mode on - so long as you don't break the game... which is why I would appreciate a quick heads up from you first. Have Fun!!!! Also, we can all work out the time this is set before starting. Beginning at very small tribes and a squillion Gods, to 16 or so and larger towns.
