    ZEITGEIST Ideas for a side quest into The Dreaming?

    A trip to the Dreaming is an excellent idea. Risur and the Dreaming are very close, and the primary conflict in the Dreaming is between political factions seeking either peaceful diplomacy with Risur or violent opposition to Risuri technology (Hedgehog Court). Obvious paths to the dreaming are...

    ZEITGEIST An attempt to codify 'partially in the Bleak Gate'

    I don't think full rules are needed since only Book 2 does this 'half in the Gate' thing, and it's only for the lab and the transiting researchers. Could even be worth simplifying to 'not in gate/half in gate/fully in gate.' But I'm sure some of your players will appreciate the extra detail.

    ZEITGEIST Tet's Zeitgeist Campaign

    Hey, glad to hear you're enjoying the AP and Zeitvice. I think my advice is to improve communication. I'm sure it is very difficult to get information across in two-hour sessions, given how complicated Zeit scenarios can be. Especially if parties have hidden motives, or seemingly have hidden...

    ZEITGEIST The Planes of the Obscurati, A List and A Question

    Well, it's worth looking at the physicality of the Axis Ritual, per Book 10. At the Axis Ritual site are 8 vertical pits, 5ft wide and 50ft deep. 'The Ob bent the rules a bit, and in the alcove of the shaft for the plane of space they shoved a second small icon representing Baden, the ghost moon...

    ZEITGEIST The Planes of the Obscurati, A List and A Question

    Moon v Planet is relevant if you are going by a rule where players can swap in X planets and Y moons. If you decide not to go with MAP in Act 3, that's fine. There are a few planes that need to be in place for Act 3. Ratios is Gidim-infested and their way onto the world, thus Ratios needs to be...

    ZEITGEIST The Planes of the Obscurati, A List and A Question

    As stated in that thread, my justification for the Ob using Gyre planes is speed-of-light delay. The Ob are using asteroids of far-off planes they are magically studying, not realising that those planes have actually been Gyred already. Perfectly fine that you want to go in a different...

    ZEITGEIST Zeitvice: one GM's guide to the best AP

    -Lylandra Oh yeah, we have much less information on Elfaivaran and Clergy society pre-Malice. Something that interests me is the possible-Triegenes empire that likely stretched from Danor, across Drakr to Crisillyir, the greatest the world has ever known. -Ryan An subtlety of book I like is...

    Actually you're wrong there, Lylandra. Book 8 repeats several times that Kasvarina had many husbands. In the book, the party meets two of them- Asrabey and Bhalu. There may very well have been more. Crisillyir/the Clergy definitely does give off the vibe of being the not-Catholic Church, and at...

    ZEITGEIST Zeitvice: one GM's guide to the best AP

    Arcaneshield, I certainly am not trying to slap a definitive 'sexist' label on either you or Thursty. Of Thursty, I think he leapt to an idea he thought was cool, 'elf slaves', and didn't spend enough time thinking out or fleshing out the underlying worldbuilding. I think he's a cheeky rascal...

    ZEITGEIST Zeitvice: one GM's guide to the best AP

    -Arcaneshield 'The ruling minority still have to answer to the males of their society who greatly outnumber them'- actually, I very much disagree with this, which feeds into my criticisms of Book 8 Elfaivar. The enclaves are hidden away in demiplanes, and enclave matriarch wield some of the...

    ZEITGEIST Zeitvice: one GM's guide to the best AP

    -Arcaneshield Zeitvice does focus on what I consider to be the flaws and holes of the AP, so it can come across as pretty cutting and condemning. My introduction still stands, however- I think this is the greatest AP ever written. I just think it still embodies the core flaws of AP design, such...

    ZEITGEIST Question on Cauldron-Born

    Yeah, my party ran into this problem. Best solution: the PCs can use Kell's information to perform a brief set-up infiltration with a small number of operatives, so that the larger assault with Asrabey can better succeed when the King can send a larger force into the Bleak Gate at a later date...

    If you can point to facts I've gotten wrong or weak interpretations of how Book 8 ties in to the rest of the AP, please do let me know.

    Per Book 12, the party might learn his true name from Book 8, or Kasvarina can tell them, or linking with Ascetia will tell them automatically. If your party hasn't figured it out in Book 8 then they must have missed a lot of memories, including Pala, which isn't ideal.

    ZEITGEIST Zeitvice: one GM's guide to the best AP

    Zeitvice has been updated to cover Book 8. As ever, please let me know if I have misremembered or misunderstood anything in Book 8, or if there are any other parts of the book you think I should include.
