Aventyr Adventures, a free blog-series for 5E

AAW Games announces Aventyr Adventures, a free blog-series for 5E on Adventureaweek.com

Aventyr Adventures is a new, system-agnostic series (with D&D 5e compatible content) designed for both players and GMs. These blog entries are 100% free to use along with existing Aventyr Campaign Setting content.

Explore Aventyr Adventures and discover an exciting world where nature struggles to survive under the onslaught of so-called civilization, primal warriors summon powerful totems, and ancient secrets in the sky, sea, and depths of the earth wait to be discovered!

Aventyr Adventures starts off in the Disputed Territories of Aventyr, a lawless and chaotic realm where multiple powers vie for control over strategic locations and limited resources.

The journey begins at the Wayward Inn, a roadside stopover on the way to greater lands. Food and water here are limited and going for many times above standard cost.

Recent war has shattered the Chonian people, with survivors now roaming the scrub plains, raiding and pillaging as they go. Rumors persist of a powerful witch in the forest to the east, orc hordes in the mountains to the south, and a Baevonian army gathering to the north. Although hearsay, these tales are driving travelers west, to Lake Chonia, where they may replenish their water reserves and seek shelter from the gathering storm.

This shared story may take you to Lake Chonia and into the ancient Grekian Ruins, or perhaps your adventuring group wants to investigate the rumors of a witch to the east; no matter which path you choose, there’s danger abound and only the strong survive in the lawless lands of Aventyr.

Join us, for Aventyr Adventures!

From the Scrollshelves of the Sage

Welcome, friends, to my  library. Once just my workplace, it’s now my greatest treasure. To introduce myself, I am Acanthus, this region’s foremost sage.

The Past

Over the years since King Tokolvor expanded the Klavek kingdom, I’ve helped adventurers, merchants, and travelers alike gather vital information. Whether about where they’re going, who and what they’ll encounter, or how to deal with all three, I’ve been there. As fine a collection of views, thoughts and facts as exists in all Klavek is upon my scrollshelves and bookcases. Perhaps nothing rivals it in all Aventyr, but that is for others to decide!

The Present

However, now I’ve made my own fortune and live an easy life, I intend to share it all. What I know to be true, surmise to be broadly correct, am in the process of clarifying, and imagine is worth further investigation, will become yours. Topics will be wide, allowing interested parties to gain insights wondrous and delightful, amazing and awe-inspiring, and hopefully entertaining. They’ll be worthy of a pipe of tobacco at a campfire, if not a meal at a prince’s table, during their retelling.

Welcome to the Future

Of course, I’ll take commissions, and happily dig into my resources, giving you my opinions on any and all topics. But remember, what you hear and read in my reports may set your feet inching, heart pumping, and mind racing.  Far horizons and distant adventures are yours to discover when you know where to look. For what is a visit to a sage if not the key to the locked chest of unexpected but great rewards!

So, my friends, I await word from you with regard to your questions and queries. Until then, I’ll make my thoughts available on myriad subjects whenever something interesting comes my way. Good fortune to you all!

– Acanthus the Sage

D&D NEXT has a new home on Wizards.com!

Wizards of the Coast has just launched a brand new hub of information for D&D Next, the “next” iteration of the game, at http://www.wizards.com/DnD/DnDNext.aspx. The new page features all the latest and greatest on D&D Next including articles from Wizards, discussions about the future of the game, and seminar transcripts from the recent D&D Experience event. It will also soon house features like Live Chats, a calendar of upcoming events and, once playtesting begins, materials will be available for download through this page. (Please note that this new site does not signify the start of playtesting – we will, of course, let you know once that begins!)

Also, as you may have noticed, the D&D site has been redesigned with a spiffy new look which went live this week at http://www.wizards.com/dnd.

Check out the new pages and, as always, let me know if you have any questions. In the meantime, check out the site and sign-up for the playtest if you haven’t already done so!
