Akorros Race Relations – dwarves, elves and halflings

In Akorros Race Relations – orcs and half orcs, I looked at how half-orcs are viewed in Akorros, and some of the history which led to this. Now it's time to move on to the demi-humans. Dwarves in Akorros I see there being a fair number of dwarves in Akorros, particularly in the The Dexterous … Continue reading Akorros Race Relations – dwarves, elves and halflings

Akorros Race Relations – orcs and half orcs

Recently one of my players asked "are there any good places to read up on races like Orcs/half-orcs in Akorros? Mostly why they are viewed "less favourably"?" I realised I couldn't think of anywhere to point him at, particularly since this is my interpretation and expansion of Akorros, which qualifies for a whole seven paragraphs … Continue reading Akorros Race Relations – orcs and half orcs

The RPGaDay2020 prompts in a map by dunroaminpress Yesterday in RPGaDay2020 I went for a Ride with a brief guide to horses. Today the prompt is Portal. What leaks through portals?

RPGaDay2020 Day 21: Push – a popular sport in Akorros

The RPGaDay2020 prompts in a map by dunroaminpress Yesterday in RPGaDay2020 I prepared for an investigation in my campaign. Today the theme is Push. Push is a popular sport in Akorros.

RPGaDay2020 Day 14: Banner

The original RPGaDay2020 prompts graphic by @WillBrooks1989 Yesterday in RPGaDay2020 I went back to traditional blogging, looking at Rest and the 5-minute adventuring day. Today the theme is Banner...and I'm struggling. What banners might you get in Akorros? The most likely would be the Toney House and Mendel Callister. The Toney family crest (according to … Continue reading RPGaDay2020 Day 14: Banner
