GMs, Zeit writers- I bring you a theory, some Deep Lore. But first, the story of how I found it.
Zeitgeist. My party and I start it, and start running it. A crucial issue at the beginning of the AP: *industry vs the fey in Risur*. We nod sagely and RP appropriately as we mosey on through the...
With my party having reached Hunlow, I thought I would share some art I whipped up for the one the only, the master of all elf slaves, the corpulent fiend too corrupted for even the Golden Legion- Captain Thrusty.
Reading through Schism, I immediately had a problem with the Convocation debate, one posters have had previously. No firm planes are discussed, merely 'plane with an aspect of cyclicality' or 'lawful elemental planes'. I decided to be ambitious with my own version; every faction would be able to...
My group are two sessions into Schism, and we're running into problems. I'm not here to discuss most of them- 'how can you debate planes without listing their full stats and just going by aspects', 'how can you take a faction from a forum thread and then swap out half its planes', 'why is the Ob...
In Act 2, there's a pretty clear 'dropped thread', potentially a rather interesting one, concerning the Children of Hewanharimau.
Betronga is defensive of Ingatan’s Refuge. Though his people do not worship Ingatan specifically, they know this place is holy. They believe that, though most...
Wotcher, me again.
In the Zeitgeist universe, stars seem to fall a lot. How, and why? What are they?

Afternoon, all. I come with two questions.
The words carved into the stock of Kvarti Gorbatiy's gun; "Cry out/for at the end of time/I Rise." What do they refer to? The Lich in Knutpara?
Why are the same words carved into the skull of Cheshimox?
I feel a little guilty sometimes. I take and take from this community- asking questions on forums, taking all the maps and asking for more, searching everywhere for further clarifying details on this brilliant AP.
Well, not today. Today I give back.
In meme form!
My party's at book 6 and they're far from enamored with his Bruseness, Shantus. They'd rather like a regime change.
The problem is that, as far as I can tell, the only mechanism is Tinker managing to assassinate the Bruse in his ambush. Anything else seems like a regime-destabilizing...
So, a quick question. Nicodemus, Nicodemus the Gnostic. At what stage of the AP should one reveal the 'Gnostic' part? The book doesn't seem to offer much guidance on that point. Is it something anyone in the Ob actually knows? It doesn't seem like 'Nicodemus the Gnostic' is an important enough...
Heyo. My group is starting to ask questions about planes outside the system, and I've run into some problems.
1. In the Players' guide, Jiese governs war and important dates. Yet in Jiese's Act 3 entries it's all about industry and cunning. Which is it? It's a bit hard to say since Jiese oil in...
Let me set the scene- Book 8, a newspaper article. Two books after Lorcan Kell falls, and Morgan Cippiano (presumably) rises to power.
The Primo Rising! A new crime lord has come to prominence in Flint, filling a void left since the collapse of the Kell guild. Known as ‘the Primo’—a subtle...
Heyo. I'm prepping to run book 5, and one question has popped up- and I'd also like to share a little map tweak I made.
First, the question- it concerns the Borne naval fight near the end of the book. It describes the 'naval map', the stages; 'the long stretch of docks, several areas of open...
Sooo... Book 4, Always on Time. It's kind of heavily assumed by the book that in the Malice Lands bandit attack, there will be at least a few casualties among the passengers. But, thanks to lots of poking around and preparations, my party arranged it such that no one was killed or even...
Heyo. A small section of Always On Time has caused me to rethink how I handled something in Digging for Lies, I could use some quick help.
In essence- what exactly is behind the seals in all of the ancient ziggurats?
Behind the Apet seal is nothing, a portal to empty space. Book 3 is pretty...
I'm currently running the Zeitgeist AP, and my party and I have just started book 4. One player is sadly having scheduling problems, and we might need to replace them. I'm looking for anyone who might be interested.

Heyo; one more question.
The golden icons. The party finds three on Axis Island, and Xambria has another in book 3. Used in the Axis Ritual, etc etc. But, I'm stuck on one question- where do they come from? Where have they all resided since the Axis Ritual? After some searching, I've come up...
Heading into Book 4, one of my players has reached new heights of enterprise, requiring me to ask for clarification on a few ambiguities with regard to the Ob's rings and their ring-code. They're thinking of forging their own rings.
1. How do Obscurati members use the rings to recognize their...
Heyo. I've been trying to track down everything about why Stanfield decided to join the conspiracy, I've found a small gap I can't fill.
In the oneshot 'Bands of Forced Faith', Stanfield's background includes this line.
Last night you were visited again by the same wise man who helped you...
Could I get some help on the Command modifiers of ships with captains in the AP? (4e, Compilation). Given the formula- highest mental modifier + half level- most of them seem to be wrong.
