Where are your games set?
For those who are play­ing.
Ours is set in the default Xoth.
Mourn for us oppressed in fear
Chained and shack­led we are bound
Free­dom choked in dread we live
Since Tyrant was enthroned

Well, as you might know — ’cause I men­tioned it in sev­eral other threads — my games is set in the world of Hârn. Not on the island itself but on the lythian main­land, right now in Emelrene.

I use Xoth, and I fill the blanks with bits and pieces from other worlds or things I create.

I have found Beasts and Bar­bar­ians to be a great addon to my Xoth.

I run my game in a myth­i­cal Eng­land dur­ing the War of the Roses (1453), aided by a guide called Dark Albion. Not exactly sword & sor­cery, but the way I see it Blade is much more ver­sa­tile than the cre­ators give it credit for. The ben­e­fit of run­ning a his­tor­i­cal set­ting is that all the his­tory and details are extremely fleshed out, and believ­able, since, you know, it actu­ally hap­pened. If you or the play­ers want to know some­thing about the world, just look it up.

In terms of the super­nat­ural, I mostly use actual old Eng­lish folk­lore, but still leav­ing some room for cre­ative lib­er­ties. One of my play­ers is a sor­cer­ous cleric for the church, and the other play­ers act as com­pan­ions of a lower station.

Orbis Mundi looks espe­cially inter­est­ing, I’ll have to pick it up at some point. Real­ism in a medieval set­ting is always tricky.

Hello all,

When I run my games of Blade, I have a ses­sion where I sit down with the group and do a world build­ing ses­sion. One group game is themed after the Russ­ian Bogatyrs with that flavour to the game. Another is an inter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion of Greek theme with nomadic tribes to set the south of them with the oblig­a­tory ruined civ­i­liza­tion which turned into a gypsy cul­ture.

I have the play­ers tell me lit­tle snip­pets of sto­ries about places and probe at points I think are inter­est­ing. It makes for a very rich game world for the play­ers to adven­ture in as they write most of the world and then as the GM I toss in lit­tle fan­tas­ti­cal bits and dan­gers for them to explore.
