Frankish and Wendish Names
Names that seem historically accurate are a difficult thing to find, so I made this list of "campaign appropriate" names for my NPCs, and decided to share it with my players too. Frankish Names - Frankish (Germanic Frankish) Male Names - Abrahil, Abram, Ada...

Religion in the Ostschild Campaign Setting
Here's a clarification I sent to my players today, because nothing is ever just generic "standard" D&D with me DMing. The default religion is Christianity,
it is the religion of the Holy Roman Empire, and Ostschild is a
member state of that empire. Specific...

Ostschild Map
It occurs to me I never shared the campaign map, so here it is. I made it with Hexographer, I am still getting the hang of it, and I have Worldographer (Hexographer 2), but I haven't really used it yet. Making maps isn't a strength of mine, but I think this...

New Feature for Ostschild Campaign
Once per week, going forward, I am giving the people in my campaign the world and local news in the group I created. Here is week One (Early June 1018 AD) - News from abroad - The Count of Holland, Dirik III, is in revolt against the Emperor over the right ...

Ostschild Starting Languages
It makes no real sense that Humans in
the Ostschild setting would speak Dwarf, or Goblin or Elfin or any of
a dozen or more other fantasy languages common to D&D. This is a
more historically based setting, so I thought I'd toss in some
historical languages....

Character Death
Character Death. It happens, and with
greater frequency I think than any of us would like to see. The life
of an adventurer is rife with danger, it's the game we're playing.
Older editions of D&D were far more lethal than their modern
versions, and even wit...

Proposed Ostschild Crits and Fumbles
I sent the following to my players. We're running B/X D&D with a bunch of house rules, this is a proposal for another. Crits & Fumbles Rolling a 20 or a 1 should be exciting,
but not debilitating or unbalancing A 20 used to be a critical hit at
nearly every...

Military orders in the kingdom of Ostschild
More from the campaign setting document Military orders in the kingdom of Ostschild - Knights of the Grail – The Knights of the Grail are a Christian order bound by oath to the quest. They do not have preceptories, and hold meetings irregularly. Instead the...

Demihumans in the Kingdom of Ostschild
This is the section on Demihumans for my (as yet uncompleted) Ostschild campaign guide Elfs – PC Elfs are
exiles from Elf land. Perhaps they were adherents of Oberon and
Titania, maybe they just fled the oppressive rule of the Elf-King,
either way, they are...

20 Questions for the Kingdom of Ostschild
So I started another D&D campaign. Lost Atlantis is still going, but not as often as I'd like, so I co-opted the members of my local board game group into playing an RPG, so far so good, we're 8 or 9 sessions in now I think. It's been every Tuesday evening ...
