River Gates of Devukarsha, Part One: Zonges/Seleucis

This post has moved to the Riskail Blog and you can find it here.  The series will continue to provide an overview of the worlds immediately available via the Twelve River Gates and special in-depth explorations of select worlds past the River Gates are planned as well.  We hope that you'll join us on this epic journey.

  1. Nice (if brief) guided tour! Brief, but yours are often some of the most information dense posts around--in a good way. :)

  2. Thanks. I aim for making it worth your time to read this stuff, even if you never play in Riskail itself and we never meet. A lot of this stuff feeds into the fiction, the art, and more. And I aim for this blog to become a resource that can be read back and forth as people discover it. You don't have to read it in order. It's becoming a sort of info-labyrinth so that, eventually, you'll be able to track down any terms, any outre belief or mind-bending concept which is why I'm considering doing a Wiki.

    The overview of the Zonges river-gate is necessarily brief as I have 12 wolds for each of the 12 river-gates to cover, at a minimum. Plus the Tributary Gates and their Wilderness Worlds (hundreds), the Courtyards, the Gate Plazas (2 main ones per ech of the Twelve Tiers, each opening unto 1 to 360 worlds each), the Mugallo Arches, and the Planar Layers...plus orbital habitats, macrostructures, another set of Obelisk Gates, more Synthecosms...there's a lot of territory to cover. Thankfully I'm working from a lot of notes and I'm hammering away on some tables for constructing basic types of worlds to help expand the impromptu/seat-of-your-pants aspect of having to deal with unforeseen character/player decisions on the fly. I dislike railroading players, even when they are on the Pararail headed off into the sunset of yet another series of worlds...

    The primary areas fleshed-out by the fiction or the gaming will get revisited in more detail after/alongside the overviews. For example, I'll porbably ahve something about Seleucis shortly.

    Then there are those immigrants that need to get detailed, probably one set per river-gate...
