I would very much like to draw your atten­tion to a fab­u­lous lit­tle Sword and Sor­cery set­ting, The Lands of the Drakkarn Sea.

It was writ­ten by our mem­ber Cer­tic and orig­i­nally made avail­able as a down­load over at tros­fans. You can grab the 1 MB, 40 pages PDF right here.

The set­ting was writ­ten for S & S-​style play with TRoS, which means that it should be very easy to adapt it to use with Blade of the Iron Throne. This does even hold true for the magic mechan­ics: The Lands of the Drakkarn Sea was a huge inspi­ra­tion for our own sor­cery mechan­ics, which are pat­terned very closely on Certic’s.

A very heart­felt “thank you” for this, Certic!
Bow down: I am the emperor of dreams;
I crown me with the million-​colored sun
Of secret worlds incred­i­ble, and take
Their trail­ing skies for vest­ment when I soar.

No, Cer­tic. Thank you — thank you for for inspir­ing us, and kudos to you for uphold­ing the ban­ner of Sword & Sor­cery gam­ing already years ago, and thank you once again for mak­ing your set­ting avail­able. My group played one of our typ­i­cal, short mini-​campaigns (still of TRoS) in The Lands of the Drakkarn Sea, and we thor­oughly enjoyed your cre­ation. :)

I very much hope that some­body picks up your set­ting to try Blade in it — I know they won’t be disappointed.

Wow, this is great, I am glad I found it. So many resources, so lit­tle time! Cer­tic, this looks awe­some… did you run cam­paigns here? Are there any adven­ture logs?

Very cool stuff!
When courage is needed, ask your­self: “If not me, who? If not now, when?“

I ran it orig­i­nally as a cam­paign using RuneQuest, 1988 onwards, grand­u­ally expand­ing it from the core area (Saran­dur and Sakaden) I’ve never actu­ally run it as a TRoS campaign.
