The Order of the Dragon

Finn, Nells, Ricken, Joseph, and Amos. Five young Lonish men chosen for martially-minded potential, to help Landen charter New Haven’s own lodge, for the most esteemed Order of the Dragon. Spring days bring opportunities for training. Swordplay and pistol shootings, and routine maintenance of the gunboat. The young men having helped our swashbuckling fellow raise the Order’s banner upon a signpost above the humble cabin. And with the toils of winter now behind them, calloused hands can

Humans

Humanity has marched through time as rapidly as they can. A constant series of wars between the nation-states have driven on technological developments so as to better kill their fellow man. Advances include explosives in the form of black powder, muzzle loaded muskets and rifles, cast cannon, and sailing ships that can either deliver soldiers rapidly, or serve as floating batteries. There are also those who study magic in the human world. It is an exhaustive, lengthy study to do even the s

Gnomes and Halflings

The Gnomes and Halflings have banded together to try to keep themselves from being sold into slavery. Figuring on being entertaining and silly so as to not be taken too seriously, these races serve another purpose as well. As the only group that truly travels freely and at will, as performers, circus acts, minstrels, or anything else, gnomes and halflings often serve alternative purposes as informal diplomats and spies. The weapons of these smaller folk tend to be those which are easil

Dwarves

Dwarves are renowned for the quality of steel that comes from their cities, no doubt helped by the purity of the iron that comes from their mines. Their exports make them the wealthiest of the races, with that wealth, and the entirety of their race, locked away in mountain citadels. It is this safety that has made the Dwarves so reluctant to leave and have cause to interact with the "others" of the world. Surely no army could assault them, no siege would be far-reaching enough to entirely c

Elves

The elves, long-lived as ever, have become set in their ways. The ways of five hundred years ago work just as well today as they did then, because these same people are still alive. While their cities tend to be low in population density and their farming is done with a loving tenderness for the earth, the elves have not yet seen reason to move beyond their bows and swords for hunting and the defense of their lands. Yet it is their magic which helps keep the coastline free from assault by the hu

Magic

Magic of the Arcane Variety: Needs to have an original "spark", only certain humans have it. No other races do. This spark needs to be refined and honed at special schools, which tend to be very expensive, and are thus reserved only for the wealthy elite. Magic of the Natural Variety: Only the elves have a close enough connection to the land anymore to support this sort of magic. This limits druids to elves. Magic of the Divine Variety: Only humans have the infrastructure and "strong r

Firearms Rules

WWN Firearms Rules, excerpted from Atlas of the Latter Earth and slightly modified where necessary (such as converting cartridge firearms to muzzle loaders). Quote: The reload times and rates of fire given here are set to be historically plausible for excellent riflemen, like the average PC gunman tends to be. NPCs with less focused training in their firing drill might need to take an extra round to get their guns in order. Reload times given are in rounds of

Nations

Tierwald The Elvish nation of Tierwald, while idyllic to outsiders, is ran by a rigid caste system. At the top, few in number, are the Grey Elves, attempting to keep the borders closed to all outsiders. They try to keep druidic numbers to their own caste. Those druids from another caste are hunted and jailed for uncontrolled meddling in the "natural order". They see how dangerous the world has become over the last centuries and firmly believe that every elf has their plac
