Utherwald Press / The Coalition Revised
« on: July 07, 2020, 09:51:13 AM »
Another instalment in the Revisited/Revised series where I look again at the background fluff as part of the update process for SWADE. This month it is the turn of the Coalition, a state that I wish to alter to allow greater potential for plot lines. This will hopefully make it a more interesting nation for players as well.

Utherwald Press / June 2020 Extra: Air Combat Playtest
« on: June 15, 2020, 01:46:36 PM »
Couple of days before the writing of this post (and around a couple of weeks before it goes live), I did a playtest via Roll20 of Frozen Skies' air combat rules against the backdrop of the launch of SpaceX. It was nice getting back to playing Savage Worlds properly (admittedly in a virtual setting) and a chance to see how well the air combat rules worked. Cannot say whether the virtual format aided or impeded things, though things seemed to go well enough.

Utherwald Press / June 2020: CWS: The Bratty Man Cometh
« on: June 01, 2020, 10:14:14 AM »
Recently came across something rather interesting and being a while since I last did a Cold War Skirmishes post, it is something too good not to post. If things go to plan, this is likely to be the first of two posts this month, the second post will be a write-up of a playtest of Frozen Skies' air combat rules and should be expected some point round the 15th June. Also, if you wish to support me or get access to new posts ahead of the crowd then please consider checking out my Patreon.

Mafias and RPGs / Savage Worlds Exilian Game
« on: May 18, 2020, 11:16:38 PM »
So I'm looking to run a Savage Worlds based Play-by-Post RPG on the forums.

Savage Worlds is a simple enough system to get into and I've been playing and running games of it on another site.

There is also this website where you can create characters; https://savaged.us/

Now for the options;

Deadlands - One of the system's flagship settings, originally Weird Western but has branched out into other genres; Noir, Post Apocalypse, SciFi and soon Dark Ages as well. The original Western based setting has recently had a Kickstarter for a new edition.

Mutant Chronicles - I call this '40K Lite'. Far future has seen the Earth abandoned and megacorporations spreading out across the solar system before dark forces were unleashed and pushed back.

Ravenloft - The classic Gothic Horror setting of D&D fame, has a quite nice fan conversion for Savage Worlds.

Weird Wars - Another flagship for Savage Worlds, Weird Wars combined the likes of WW2 with supernatural horror. Think Hellboy or that recent Overlord film.

Utherwald Press / May 2020: Call Ye The Faithful
« on: May 04, 2020, 10:57:42 AM »
Kinda befitting that I'm writing this on Beltane (the Gaelic May Day festival), particularly since this month I'm writing about the Celtic inspirations for the Commonwealth's culture and society in Frozen Skies. Been thinking about religion with regards to the Commonwealth and I've had some ideas kicking around in my head. It draws on Celtic polyteism but it incorporates some ideas I've had about how it could've evolved.

Utherwald Press / April 2020: Airships Ahoy!
« on: April 06, 2020, 10:02:47 AM »
With the release of the new Vehicle Guide from Pinnacle I was able to go through and adjust vehicle stats in Frozen Skies where needed. More interestingly, the Vehicle Guide had stats for airships which has enabled me to update airship and skyship stats for Frozen Skies. So this month features updated stats and some more thoughts regarding air combat.

Utherwald Press / March 2020: Airborne Musings
« on: March 02, 2020, 04:03:12 PM »
New month, new post.

Stated last month that I was looking at the air combat system for Frozen Skies, part of the overall process of updating it for SWADE. This month is my thoughts I've had regarding this over the previous month. Also, stay tuned for news of the next event Utherwald is attending this year.

Utherwald Press / State of the Press 2020
« on: January 06, 2020, 10:27:07 AM »
Its the beginning of a new year, and decade, so time to reveal how things currently stand with Utherwald Press. There are some changes ahead, though I'm going to have to be a little personal here in order to give context and explain my decisions behind the changes. Though I will also be setting out my goals for what I want to achieve this year, something which I am hopeful I will achieve.

Utherwald Press / Frozen Skies: The Duskfall Run
« on: December 23, 2019, 04:09:39 PM »
So 2019 is drawing to a close and we head into the festive season, typically a time of giving. As this is going to be the final post of the year, heres a gift in the form of a new adventure that is also themed for this time of year. This adventure is set at the start of a period known as the Shrouded Days, a time of polar night in the far north of Alyeska marked by the Exodus as a large number of people head south.

Until the New Year, Happy Holidays!

Utherwald Press / Operation Thule: After Action Report
« on: December 16, 2019, 03:26:21 PM »
Recently got to run my Operation Thule adventure that I released for SWAG, a Weird Wars style adventure set in the early '80s. It was also my first proper adventure that I've run under SWADE, which despite the changes from SWD felt like coming back to an old friend. Certainly made a nice change from the Rogue Trader game I've been running for the past few months.

Utherwald Press / The Iron Collective Revisited
« on: December 09, 2019, 04:05:48 PM »
This week it is the turn of the Iron Collective to receive the 'Revisited' treatment. Again this is another nation that I'm largely happy with how it currently stands, save perhaps for tweaks and refinements here and there. Though I do have an idea for a possibly big addition to the lore of the Iron Collective.

Utherwald Press / New Aircraft: Iolar Light Bomber
« on: December 02, 2019, 08:42:57 AM »
Another new aircraft, though this week I set myself bit of a challenge to recreate the de Havilland Mosquito or get as close as possible. Though its ended up being a slightly faster version of the Argentine I.Ae.24 Calquin Light Bomber, apparently an aircraft patterned after and is a 'look-alike' for the Mosquito.

Utherwald Press / Keep The Home Fires Burning: Mortuary Troubles
« on: November 25, 2019, 09:00:37 AM »
This week we dip back into Keep The Home Fires Burning, a setting that we've only infrequently looked at. Trying my hand at an adventure in the KTHFB setting, something thats been kicking around in my head for a while. The basis overview is that the characters have been sent to a hospital where corpses have been stolen from the hospital's morgue, though the truth behind the thief is more horrible than the characters realise.

Utherwald Press / The Airman's Gazetteer: Colony of Orduesh
« on: November 18, 2019, 05:09:16 PM »
Little bit of a chance of pace, a return to the Airman's Gazetteer series to expand the world of Darmonica. This week is a look at something that has been mentioned previously; the Commonwealth Colony of Orduesh. This desert outpost is surrounded by hostile lands and border skirmishes are a way of life, yet the Commonwealth still holds onto it.
