War of Ashes RPG: List of Ingredients

Jaarl Uniforms

Continuing with notes as I work on the War of Ashes RPG for Evil Hat Productions: in my previous post I gave an overview of the land of Agaptus and now I’d like to give you an idea of what I have done with it.

Of course there is a general overview in the introductory chapter, along with a summary of the Fate Accelerated rules, followed by three chapters detailing each of the factions that are available a priori to player characters.  I say a priori because in the gamemaster section, I will try to address the inevitable question, “What if one of my players wants to play some other kind of character?”

The bulk of the material consists of overviews of sample locations along with plot seeds like the one I posted last week. Each plot seeds consists of an Aspect and a short description. If there is a type of topic you’d look for in such a book and I didn’t think of it, please suggest it!

Right now, the outline of the setting portions of the book looks like this:
