Sorry, for the off-topic post, but some interesting rulesets on the "Running Domains"-parts (mostly without the "Blood-from-the-gods"-Birthright-Stuff) can be found in The Quintessential Aristocrat and the "Classic Play" Book of Strongholds & Dynasties by Mongoose Publishing. Both 3e/3.5e as I recall.

I read through both of these when I tried to get a 3.5-implementation of a large-scale campaign-game-ruleset and found them to be very helpful.

Edit: Also check "Empire" from Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) for class-specific domain-powers. I thought of this when I referred to "Strongholds & Dynasties", but it's "Empire", I meant. ;)

I've lost track of recent realmslore, since my campaigns are still in the 1370ies. :-)

When talking about rules (and related stuff) I always refer to 3.5e unless explicitly noted.

@Dalor:

well, *gets red* thanks for the flowers.


Also have been waiting for 12 years for a game like we do currently. So thanks from my side as well ;) Great job. ALL of you, not only DD, also Myric and the Dark lady.

Just dropped a few bits 'n pieces in your mailbox.

Can't wait for the rules etc. you were mentioning.

Best
JK

Here is a rough draft area map for the Moonsea for use with the Birthright rules.

EDIT:

Here too is a rough map of the starting domains:

EDIT...should be Melvaunt and Thentia

EDIT (10/7/13): better map below

The first map I did was way off in province sizes...here is another WIP of the Cormyr and Moonsea areas for use with the Birthright Rules System:

EDIT: I think I need to divide Melvaunt and Thentia and join Hulburg and Sulasspryn instead...

For anyone interested in how the world is coming along, I've got the following views for you:

"Aerk Lands":https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10166328/View%20of%20Aerk.jpg
-Original home of my Home Games

"Dragonlance":https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10166328/View%20of%20Ansalon.jpg
-Yes, I like Dragonlance!

"Birthright":https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10166328/View%20of%20Cerilia.jpg
-Where the Goblins have many Kingdoms (figure JK will like this one!)

"Forgotten Realms":https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10166328/View%20of%20Faerun.jpg
-Where we are playing now in the Swords of the Moonsea

"Greyhawk":https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10166328/View%20of%20Greyhawk.jpg
-Where my wife and kids play with me

"Gudheim":https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10166328/View%20of%20Gudheim.jpg
-A land of ALL GIANTS where little people live beneath the ground!


This was an experiment to see how the Google Earth globe would work...seems to do pretty darned good. Now I just need to actually finalize the map and make it look good instead of patchy like it is now.

Also finalizing The Five Shires project at the same time, should be done before too much longer!

This project is now dead in the water...other things (below in my signature) are now occupying my time fully.

I have completely lost this map that HandsomeRob made so many years ago. The file is nowhere to be found on any of my computers or hard drives.

Does anyone have a copy of my map? lol

I would appreciate any help.

While that is an excellent map, it is not the one I'm speaking of.

The map I'm speaking of is a map of the Kingdom of Mahn and its environs that HandsomeRob made for me.

Great Reader Darden,

I was literally going to ask you whether you had a new URL to download that map. Any chance HandsomeRob would still have it? I don't know him personally, or I'd ask myself! All of the posts are making me want to see this badly!

Best regards,

Great Reader Darden,

Wow! I commiserate with you regarding your loss of that. That absolutely sucks! I do hope by some chance HandsomeRob ends up having a copy by happenchance.

Best regards,
