Anthony Li and Alexander Augunas are talking homebrew with their second installment of Create Demiplane, a segment in which the Private Sanctuary Podcast’s Man Behind the Screens and Everyman Gamer talk about world building. If that wasn’t cool enough, they’ll be showing off the various strategies that they talk about each week by actually BUILDING a world to play in. (Specifically, a demiplane.)
In Create Demiplane’s latest installment, Alex and Anthony talk about the first thing in a setting that the PCs are likely to interact with: villages. We’ll be revealing the winner of the last You Decide and giving our listeners a new topic to vote on too!
Create Demiplane Thus Far ….
A quick summary of our Demiplane after Episode 259.
“Subartic Plane” – Everything has been frozen over by ice and snow. No sunlight. Think Alaska in the dead of winter, year-round.
Major Deity — Codename “Flame Deity.” True Neutral. Major Deity. Has the following domains: Community, Healing, Fire, Protection, and SCALYKIN (You Decide winner!).
Settlements are “fueled” by dragons; their fire keeps the settlements running.
Primarily Red and Golds. Need mortals to build them shelters because red/gold dragons are vulnerable to gold and would eventually die without a place to retreat to.
Dragons are seen by mortals as avatars/children of the Major Fire Deity. Governments are theocracies with the settlement’s dragons acting as rulers.
New settlements are given an egg and a group of clerics to act as the wyrmling’s regents. The clerics have full power over the new settlement until the dragon reaches Adulthood (101 years).
Dragon flames provide heat and light for living, cooking, and growing food.
Silver and white dragons are in the setting; don’t know about other colors.
After listening to Episode 259, come back here and vote in the comments section about whether our dragons should have a static alignment (all reds/golds have X alignment unless manipulated otherwise by mortals) or they have a fluid alignment (dragons don’t have a particular alignment and are susceptible both to personal preferences and mortal machinations)?
Leave your votes in the comments, and we’ll build off of the winning side on the next Create Demiplane!
