Two more Akhamet adventures to released on DriveThruRPG! Dying of the Day This was an adventure I wrestled with writing but it came together and really took on a life of its own.

Getting it to its destination will be more difficult than you can bear. Originally run as the FOE Gencon 2018 Special.

Ancient Ship Gallery and Construction Guidelines

Two years ago now, I made a series of ships designed to be used in RPGs particularly Akhamet. These ships served me for years now. I now have more ship designs I want to build, which I will with the experience I gained from building these three guys. Here is a short guide on how to create such ships for you: 1 - The bodies were made of corrugated cardboard with the corrugations at 90' angle. This makes them light but sturdy. Make sure to keep the amount of glue to a minimum to avoid warping. 2 - Once the body is done and dry, cover the top and sides with Popsicle sticks. This will strengthen the body. Now here you can be as loose or tight with the planking as you want. Again easy on the glue to avoid warping, not only for the body but also for the sticks themselves. A little stick warping will make it look more "realistic". 3 - For the mast, use a chopstick you will stick into the center of the ship. Stick it through wood - having drilled a hole then force it through the cardboard. Since these boats are

[Akhamet] Lost Pyramid of Neferheket Released

Back in October of 2017, I had just lost my job and was actively looking for a new one. That's when I came up with the idea for the Akhamet Campaign Setting, my setting inspired by Ancient Egypt. The setting grew from an idea for adventure, which started with an introduction that would become the Lost Pyramid of Neferheket. For months now, I have been running this adventure, and it is a very fun and exciting one. It presents a lot of the elements of Akhamet in a format that is fun and very approachable. I must say that Blehc's awesome art for Pharaoh which graces the cover is one of her best work, based on Yul Brinner's portrayal of Ramses II. This was a short message letting you know the Lost Pyramid of Neferheket is now available through DriveThru RPG. Akha-01 Lost Pyramid of Neferheket by JP ChapleauQueen Neferheket was once Pharaoh's favorite. She was buried in a pyramid out in the desert. Last night, her ghost appeared in the small village of Onoris asking for you by name.An adventure for APLs 3-4 (ch

Ships of Akhamet

Last last year, I built myself a small fleet of ships to use with Akhamet, and I am just getting around to posting the pictures. These ships are designed to be functional in a game sense, rather than display pieces. For the past year, I have been using them extensively for a variety of games and adventures. This is the biggest of the three ships I did, and I staged a mock battle on it for you guys. Plus, having miniatures is always cooler.

Akhamet Iconic Characters

One thing Paizo has done very well was to create and use their iconic character in different scenes for their books. These characters became associated with the brand as its logo and trade dress. That was a very wise choice and something I plan on doing for Akhamet (and for all my other settings). So without much further ado, here are the six iconic characters for the Akhamet setting. Clicking on the picture of their miniatures will open a bigger version. These characters we created with material found exclusively in FOE' Akhamet setting, available from DriveThruRPG. AmenhetiMale Horite Cleric of Pharaoh, Folk Hero Born to a simple family of brewers, you grew up staring at the majesty of the Sun, amazed and fascinated by its power and glory. You joined the priests of Pharaoh to bring His glory to the common people. To this day, you share a bond with the common folk. HapatsetFemale Ubasti Wild Sorceress, Wife of Pharaoh You have always been pretty so when you were married to Pharaoh, you rejoiced in your

Another one bites the dust!

Well another one in the books! Today marked the finale of a Akhamet-base short dungeon-crawl campaign I called "Pyramid of the Barbarian king" wherein a group of adventurers traveled into the desert into a strange pyramid. They were: - Princess Akat, Retid-Khemite paladin (Jojo) - Catman, Ptahn arcane trickster (ActionMan) - Kuthet, Sethru bard (Matt) - Neferkari, Ubasti cleric of Bast (Ariel) - Ratara, Horite ranger (Erica) - Terata, Anubian swashbuckler (who joined us for the finale, Sarah) Given the rather unclear task of exploring the pyramid looking for anything that might help Pharaoh in his current predicament. The pyramid turned out to a strange place filled with people who do not eat or drink, worshiping barbarian gods. And discovering the history of this area of Akhamet, a part of history that is found in neither the monuments or the texts that survive from that era. The history of Akhamet mention that barbarians took over the area, but it makes little sense that the people who were there sim

I use my kids as punching bags

"What do you mean we can run away?""This is gonna be nasty because you wrote the adventure." Today did not go as planned... The original plan was to play with the kids, mine and Matt's. However, a school paper prevented that. I had another player, Sarah, who was scheduled to come, but decided against it later. So I decided simply to play with just the kids. play something slightly different. Run something linked to a new storyline I am interested in getting off the ground and test a few unique ideas I have. Of course, I would never tell them exactly what I am testing out on them. This plot line involves the Tehenu barbarians of the Great Western Desert, and the city of Waset. I have a few special things in store that needs playtesting... and well why not play-test it? As a fun things... the kids drew maps of what they explored today... each of them added some interesting elements they each found interesting and important to note. The first one is by ActionMan and the second by Kitty. I won't give the det
