World building: the known world

The Village of Mucket

A bunch of dice











The dice fall where they may... and a random village at a fork in the road.

Board Games: Kill it with fire!

You will need to print a deck of fifty two cards. Fold them over and gule them together.
Dish out equal shares of cards and then attack.
First player lays down a sacrifice card face down as the start point. Second player must attack or block an end with the card face up. Then the first player does the same with card face down and so on until all remaining cards belonging to the second player are allocated to the field face down and all cards of the first player are face up.

Now the second-last card played is flipped to determine whether the second player has blocked an agressor, attacked a victim, or wasted a card by blocking a victim or attacking an agressor.

Tally up the successful attacks. Now reverse positions with second player playing first. Greatest tally wins.

Campaign Ideas: Artefacts of a previous civilization

It is a childs toy that functions as an intelligence test. It has existed in the world for centuries, millenia with a multifunction purpose:

  •  To identify those with high intelligence from an early age.
  • To teach the mathematics of its functioning that are integral to the rise of a Technological civilization.
  • To keep a secret hidden in plain sight.
Its history is lost to the past. It is a simple thing. A collection of weights, each larger than the previous, holes up their middle. And three poles protruding from a timber plate. The task is to move the pile, one disc at a time, from one pole to another without ever having placed a larger weight on a smaller weight. An apparently simple test of increasing complexity depending on the number of weights. And now the Wizards use it to test children and determine those that have the brains to be more than cattle of a civilization sliding into a third dark age.
