The Children of the Harvest UNLOCKED; The Tome of Blighted Horrors Just Around the Corner

January 15th - via: kickstarter.com

We're down to the final 2-1/2 days of The Blight Kickstarter, and we've not only funded recently but have been smashing through stretch goals. We're now over $85,000 and seriously eyeing that $100,000 stretch goal where The Blight suddenly becomes a... (Read More)

Just Like That

January 13th - via: kickstarter.com
And the $80,000 line has come and gone. With that stretch goal the adventure Horror in the Sinks is unlocked. And, I feel compelled to add, The Blight Player's Handbook is just a hair over $1,500 from being unlocked as well. I'll go ahead and mention... (Read More)

Vermis Insectum…

January 13th - via: kickstarter.com
Insects. The profusion of insects in the twisted city-state is hard to explain; most are little more than an irritation, the constant noise of some has caused madness. Their sheer number and variety here is perhaps why so many have phobias about... (Read More)

WE'VE FUNDED!!!

January 13th - via: kickstarter.com
We did it...or rather I should you, YOU did it! The Blight KS funded earlier today, and with 5 days to go. We are now official, I can now take the step of officially adding the previously unofficial stretch goal that gets us to the hardcover of the... (Read More)

Undead, Underneath and Under-Justices

January 12th - via: kickstarter.com
My word, we’re at U already, and have covered so little… Let’s start with undead. There are lots of undead in the Blight, in fact a whole populace of them somewhere out there, known collectively as the Fetch. Let’s make no bones about it,... (Read More)

Technology, Toiltown and Town-Bridge

January 11th - via: kickstarter.com
Let’s start with technology. The technology of the Blight is renaissance; it has clocks and rudimentary treadmills and cathedrals and the printing press. I think the reason a few people wrongly attribute a more technological setting is down to the... (Read More)

The Sinks

January 10th - via: kickstarter.com
Today I want to focus upon one of my favorite places in the Blight, the decayed, brine-soaked aristocratic enclave of the Sinks, somewhere we've barely had time to mention so far. Massive SPOILERS ahead chums… “Decay. The whole pace reeks of... (Read More)

Rats, Races and Regal Houses…

January 9th - via: kickstarter.com
They say the rats in the city have a queen, who they worship and honor as a living god. The queen, they say, is linked to her eight crooked sisters—all of whom have sadly passed away and now do little but giggle and hunger and bite—by... (Read More)

Quagmires and Quicksands…

January 8th - via: kickstarter.com
Perhaps it’s inevitable that as a city expands, it swallows up everything around it, and sometimes those places are difficult to keep down. There are some who say Castorhage is doomed to die, to be swallowed by Sister Lyme and her children; Canker... (Read More)

Punishment

January 7th - via: kickstarter.com
Carrying on from yesterday’s update, here are two places you really don’t want to end up in in the Blight. The update today comes with a warning that it deals with the subject of mutilation and is not be suitable for younger players… The... (Read More)

Order and the Occult

January 5th - via: kickstarter.com

Monsters, lots and lots of Monsters……..

January 4th - via: kickstarter.com
A good setting needs great monsters, and the Blight has lots of them. Things that slither, things that gulp, things that spastically follow you down alleyways or across rooftops. Things that are waiting in your attic or under your bed.   Whether... (Read More)

Levees and Lists and Lots More...

January 3rd - via: kickstarter.com
The tricky thing about mentioning the 9-part adventure path Levee is that to say very much at all might be a bit of a giveaway. It’s crammed full of secrets and surprises, so sharing them now would risk exposing her finer more shocking points, and... (Read More)

K is for Killers, Grand Justice Korsk and Knockers…

January 2nd - via: kickstarter.com
“A killer, my friend, never dies. Their legend lives on, and sometimes, in this city, what lives on is more than that legend…” Inspector Hogg[1] Many blame Between, some say it’s the poison air or the despair, but it can’t be denied, the... (Read More)

J - Welcome to the Jumble...

January 1st - via: kickstarter.com
What the Jumble looks like… Like a child’s drawing of a land-bound ship of impossible scale. The Jumble is almost all wood, with a little bit of rope and prayer for good measure. Temporary, mad and rambling, the Jumble does not so much increase... (Read More)

Illuminati—Friend or Enemy—or Both?

December 31st - via: kickstarter.com
Continuing our horror theme from yesterday we come to the Illuminati—a generic name for the shady organization said to be a short step behind the throne in the Capitol and across Castorhage. The Illuminati are a self-proclaimed group of men, women... (Read More)

Horror

December 30th - via: kickstarter.com
The Blight may indeed be a mad, corpulent, deranged thing, but above all else she is a horror setting. But what type of horror? Well, she’s got the usual mix of horror themes you’d expect; lots of smart undead, particularly ghouls, she’s set... (Read More)

G is for Gyre…

December 29th - via: kickstarter.com
Tempting as it is to go for the peculiarly large number of Gs along the Great Lyme River, we’ll take a trip today to one of her most noticeable landmarks, the Gyre… The Gyre is one of many places in the Blight that I feel cries out for an... (Read More)

Flavor and Festival

December 28th - via: kickstarter.com
There are altogether too many Fs to cover in one update, but as we get into the final 20 days, I wanted to give you two quick samples of the Blight from a list of many Fs. The first is an introduction to one small part of the overall GM’s... (Read More)

East Ending

December 27th - via: kickstarter.com
The district of Toiltown is about as bad as it gets in the Blight; a seething murderous mass of slog, sweat and continuation that offers many a place to hide, and those with imaginations to dream and want. The East Ending is one parish of Toiltown,... (Read More)

D is for Dwarves…

December 26th - via: kickstarter.com
There have been one or two folk out there who have a slight concern that the Blight takes a step away from traditional fantasy. Well, one step maybe, but Castorhage must work hand in glove with the Lost Lands setting, and as such, her soul rests in... (Read More)

C is for Castorhage - Meet the Royal Family...

What is Between?

December 23rd - via: kickstarter.com
Mechanically—and mechanically is really not the right word—it’s a place that touches the Blight, and only the Blight. It’s a skin-thinness away, and yet can seem impossible to reach, or more usually escape from, like being on the wrong side... (Read More)

Character Background Traits in the Blight

December 21st - via: kickstarter.com
While Richard is taking us on a nice little Christmas tour of beautiful, jolly Castorhage-by-the-sea, I thought I'd pop by to drop a little tidbit on character development in the Blight (I found my pantomime horse costume so it's safe for me to come... (Read More)

B is for the Barnacles...

December 21st - via: kickstarter.com
Continuing on the letter B—B for betrayal, bastard and broken, we come to the Barnacles. In truth, many consider the Barnacles a part of the Great Lyme River, less a district than a grandiose parish, a fortress isle that links to Between.In truth... (Read More)

Welcome to Booktown and her Secrets...

December 20th - via: kickstarter.com
“It’s cold today brother, and the streets are empty. Booktown can be like that, particularly at festival-time; not for her residents the rousing songs of bawdy taverns and gin-houses, nor the dark game of souls, friendships and alliances. Her... (Read More)

“Hmmm, what’s this? Vaughan seems to have left his pantomime horse costume behind the trapeze on stage, and what’s this in the pockets? The key to the Frog’s Controlling Chamber! One quick tweak and, gosh! I’m in... Eurgh! What’re all... (Read More)

December 10th - via: kickstarter.com
