I would say typical medieval tech like, got, Dragon age, Witcher etc so standard tech plus things that can be advanced because of magic.

Ah, gotcha. So something around the high/late Medieval period, then? That seems to be the standard fare for typical medieval tech in fantasy settings. :P

Would gunpowder be included in that, by the way? No complaints if there isn't, just curious lol.

There's alchemical substitutes to explosives and the like, I believe, though guns aren't a thing in Eboris.

Tag. A bit stuck on what kind of character to do, though - are there any races/kingdoms/etc. that aren't represented by a PC yet?

Certainly, Molokai (the merfolk) only technically have one PC (that'd be me). Not sure for others.

I would say elves are the least populated, particularly ones from Athela. Though fair warning they might be somewhat unpopular :P plenty of other factions like the Merry Men of the Vine, the Keepers of the Glass, the Enchanter's order are currently unrepresented

Hey Tomia, with permission, I'd love to write a little lore-building on the incident at Eckers.

I imagine the battle was quite catastrophic. 3-way medieval warfare is not pretty.

I can help if you want. My char did participate in the battle as a mercenary.

Also Tom, I edited to say that Prax fought for Dascus and not Athela at Eckers, if that's all right with you.

Gotcha, gotcha. Could make do with that. :P

One more thing, by the way: are characters allowed to start out as leaders of their own small little faction/group of people? I kinda had an idea for something akin to a roving band of travelers, adventurers, etc. but I want to make sure if that's cool or not first! :3

Ya, something like that as long as its not too big should be fine

Well Eckers wasn't a 3 way battle, was just between Athela and Dascus, but feel free to write something up for it :)

I think me and Anarcho are gonna do something.

My idea is that Eckers basically gets leveled, both sides claim it was the other's fault, and it essentially leaves a crater in the ground due to the massive network of underground tunnels. Perhaps entailing future events. :p

Gotcha, gotcha! Just to be clear, what would you say is too big? Just so I don't exceed that limit lol

I'd imagine any subsequent fighting in the crater would be pretty nasty. If you want to handle the prequisite siege and collapse, I can do the Battle of the Crater stuff.

Works for me.

I'm gonna play some Rising Storm and then get to work.

@Tomia, is Eckers a regular medieval city? Walls and whatnot?

Also, @Anarcho, do you want this in story(told from the perspective of characters) format or in recap format?
