I did The Elmerite Order TTRPG setting on Patreon a while back, and just put up the collated version there. I’m also putting it up here. Enjoy!
This month we have:
- THE ELMERITE ORDER, PART 8 AND LAST: A new campaign world starts next month. Haven’t decided what it’s going to be, yet. Anyway, this month is the last installment, discussing campaigns in this Mage-but-the-Technocracy’s-not-horrible-esque campaign world.
- PICKMAN’S MODEL: My shameless companion piece to the original! Edited, expanded, and improved for… something. Something to be discussed soon. Keep watching the skies!
This month there’s the following:
- Chapter 1 of TINSEL RAIN: Well, I spent the whole dang month working on the new book for NaNoWriMo, and the first chapter makes all right thematic sense on its own.
- The Elmerite Order, Part 3: The Sciencite Paradigm: It’s like the Technocracy, only they’re not jerks! Or, when they are, at least they’re not taking stabs at the patch on the universe. The ones that are don’t really count.
Although I reserve the right to swap out the RPG setting for something else next month. It’s a good idea, but it needs just a touch of something.
This went off the tracks – but in an interesting way, so I’ll allow it.
The Elmerite Order
So, it turns out that the worldview found in first edition Mage: The Ascension is not entirely inaccurate, after all. Magic works; there are various Traditions that can manipulate it; but one paradigm (scientific rationalism) is so dominant that the others cannot operate freely on our plane of existence. Fair enough… as far as that goes.
