A quick post to let everyone know that Gencon tickets are finally available. For another year, our tickets have sold really well. After just over twenty four hours, we have seven sold out tables already! There are currently 7 tickets left. As there is always a little a bit of movement in the tickets as people change, so you may luck out. But do not wait, get your tickets now! For your convenience, here is a link to FOE Events at GenconAs usual, I am touched and very appreciative of people interest in FOE products and events.
Last week I posted how I really advanced my work on the Gencon special by talking with my GMing team. Well, not only have I been able to make a lot of good work on that adventure, but by advancing the final part, the first part - which will premiere at Origins. Has also cleared up from my writer's block. All because the second part took shape! Now Part 1 of the Battle of Farelis is an adventure with a lot of story. There is much plot to be extirpated from it. Many significant NPCs with goals... As this is the first of the Saggakar Year Four adventure, I had to advance the story from last year's. With all my work on Akhamet and Rhym, I barely did any work on Saggakar in a year! It really was like reuniting with the old gang as the story and the plot I have been working towards for the first three years are now ready to come to fruition and the situation ready to explode! I am really pumped with this as I have been blasting encounters after encounters with like a million mini encounters in-between. This means
All of the FOE events have been approved by Gencon this year! I am super excited to announce an absolutely fantastic group of GMs who agreed to work with me this year. First and foremost, Will Allen Matthews who volunteered to help out for two days. Volunteering to help for a full day are (in alphabetical order) Florent-F, Florence-M, and Randy-P. I promise to get the mods in your hands quickly... "I'm working on them..."

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
FOE's events passed the first test before acceptance at Gencon. However, one of my GMs had to step down because of his work, this leaves me with three slots without a GM. All three games are on Thursday August 1st,running all day. As perks, you get the following: - A free GM's badge, that will allow you to enjoy the last three days of Gencon! - FOE swag, including a snazzy uniform - Adulation of millions! If you are interested/ available/ curious contact me at mailto:email@example.com. At this time, one of the adventure is written (and in need of editing), another must be completed, and the final one will involved a collaborative effort by all three GMs.
I am happy to say that I plan to return to Conglomeration in Louisville KY again this year. I spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to run and came up with a program I think will be very interesting. I will be running games on Saturday and Sunday, leaving me time to play on Friday evening and Saturday morning. Mummy of Prince Tsubeteb by JP ChapleauPrince Tsupeteb, one of Pharaoh's favorite sons received the ancient and holy rites of mummification. As such, he needs to be taken to his tomb.

It is once again time for Gencon planning. Yes, it is barely over that it again comes on the topic. This year, I have some very ambitious goals for FOE. I plan to have a massive showing. I would love to see if we could get three tables running at the same time! One of these slots will either be a cooperative or competitive event! Your group against another. I am still considering the details of what we will run... Whether this be in Akhamet, Rhym, Saggakar or something else! A lot of time and work between now and then. I definitely plan to use the Patreon to provide insight into the writing process of these, but also offer additional perks and bonuses to players! Another perk of being a patron! I have a few ideas yet to develop for what I want to do. Perhaps the return of Prince Diogenes, everyone's favorite foreign prince, and son of a god? A lot of people would really hate me for bringing this hero of a foreign land back... I would also like to work with my team of GMs in the creation of this special. Pick
One of the many things I have been working on to grow FOE is a Patreon page. I plan to produce some content for it: I will have bunch of short "One-page dungeon" adventures, maps I drew, new races, monsters, NPCS, and anything else you propose. Some of it will be 5e-focused, but I expect to post a lot of it in a system agnostic way. I do have a few ideas for other random things. Things I'm not sure this blog is the right place to fit it. Whether you are interested only in 5th Edition game material or not, you will still find great material for your game from that Patreon. I am building it up now and will make an announcement about when it will be ready. My goal for it would be to provide small products, such as races, encounters, short adventure ideas, and art. Now, before you ask, YES, all content posted on the Patreon will be available for the Legacies Organized Play Campaign. So by joining, you will get additional game-friendly material. No, this blog is not going away. It will remain as what it is: a
Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. This one will be the final entry in the Nymph series... Nymph: MaliadThe maliad were born from the blood of Gaia when Cronus castrated Uranos. Originally associated with the ash tree, the term now encompasses all forest nymphs. Maliads are curious about the world of men, have a basic understanding of it and are the most likely to interact with mortals. Maliad love to be chased, like a doe in the forest. As such, they love to tease those they love by running away. They are the most likely to run away from their home to see the world. Maliad FeaturesYour nymph character has several traits in common with all other nymphs. Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma and Dexterity scores each increase by 1. Age. You grew very quickly from a young age and matured around age ten. From there, you will change very little the rest of your lives. You can live up to ten centuries. Size.

Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. Nymph: NaiadNaiads are nymphs of springs, ponds, and those waterways too small to be ruled over by a greater divinity. Naiads prefer freshwater to salt water dwellings and the confines of such waterways to the vast expanse of the sea. Naiads are reclusive, shy and quiet. They observe and obsess over those they love from the safety of the waters. They do not always understand that other creatures do not share their affinity to water and have lured many lovers to a watery doom.

Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. Nymph: LampadLampads are the dour nymphs of the underworld. Perhaps the most worldly of the nymphs, they serve as entourages to the goddesses of the Underworld. They take their name from the lamp they carry through the world of the dead to light their way. Lampads are very pale with long dark hair. They are the least self-centered or vain of the nymphs, looking like the shades they preside over. As such, they are the least sociable of the nymphs, preferring the presence of non-lampads to that of their sisters.

I have been in something of an ancient world thing for the past year or so, with working on Akhamet and spending time on a Greek-thing (whose name I keep changing all the time). During this time, I filled my Dropbox with like a million small files about potential races, monsters, and adventure ideas. I am at a point where I need to create a folder just for this. After going through a series of iterations, I decided to focus on three types of nymphs, all of which would be playable by PCs. Since the Monster Manual already includes a dryad entry, I wanted to create something new. Part of this series, I will present the statistics for new races I plan on adding to my finalized Greek book. I already have a few races out there: Amazon, Medusan, Olympian, and Titanborn. The races in these blog posts will be allowed choices in both the Legacies Organized Play Campaign, but also any game I run. I may gather these into a Gostor book in the meantime, and create a Herolab plugin to create these as characters.
