Now available as Pay What You Want; The Frozen Skies Setting Primer

Alyeska.

A frontier land largely at the mercy of the savage Wulvers since the end of the Great Darmonican War, barely enough soldiers left to defend the rump of the Commonwealth's once extensive colonial holdings. With many towns cut off and large swathes of territory overrun by the beasts the safest form of transport is by air, but the breakdown in law and order as given rise to scoundrels like sky pirates and bandits.

Alyeska's frozen skies are increasingly becoming a dangerous place to be.

This primer gives an overview of heart of the Frozen Skies setting; The Continent of Alyeska.

In addition it offers a brief guide to the Commonwealth and its main factions in Alyeska, Wulvers and their stats along with a selection of gear to allow you to start playing in the Frozen Skies setting.

Plot Points, Sandboxes and Tales of Savagery

Recently been reading 50 Fathoms and I've been asked a few times whether or not Frozen Skies is a Plot Point Setting. Figured it was high time that I explained how I envisioned the Frozen Skies setting working in relation to all this.

This week we discuss ideas behind Frozen Skies' Skyships, chiefly designs and how they work. Course these are ideas at the moment and open to input, so feedback will be most welcomed.

Also, will look to start producing stats for them at some point in the not so distant future.

Alyeskan Gazetteer: Prospector's Reach

Another Gazetteer, this time the forsaken town of Prospector's Reach. Nestled on the edge of the cursed Chillwynd Marches, it is a mustering point for expeditions heading into the haunted frozen plains and frequently feel the chilly touch of the Marches' whispering winds.

Remnants

This week we take a look at the Ancient Terrans' legacy that folks are likely to encounter from ruins through to artefacts and something else entirely. Least some of this week's post should prove useful as fodder for adventure ideas.

I'm also taking requests/suggestions for posts, so if there is a Frozen Skies related topic then by means let me know. Cheers.

Communications For The Masses

Thanks to Jubal of Exilian for the topic.

This week we have a look at ways of sending a message to somebody, we also look at how Alyeska gets its news. A few things that can be worked into a game, either as an adventure seed or to help bring the world to life.

Gearheads, Scrappers & Canners

Often with machines there will be those who are passionate about them in some form or another, they may be those who tinker with machines as a hobby for those who put serious investment of both time and money into said machines. In Darmonica they are known by many names, Gearheads, Scrappers and Canners.

This week is their moment in the spotlight.
