Gamer’s Haven Episode 75 – Cooperative Worldbuilding Part 2
We continue using the ClanWebsite.org Dawn of Worlds world creation method, a free PDF that can be found here, and finish up the first era. We take a lot of tangents, as you can see.
Alternatively, if that site was to go away, you can click to download the Dawn of Worlds Cooperative World Creation.
This episode came in long as well, and we didn’t take many pictures, so no enhanced podcast this time around. I will post images as soon as possible, and we’ll have a long slideshow of the development of the world.
In the Three Parter, Ethan reviews ICONS from Adamant Publishing, Jeremy talks about the Prince of Wolves, a Pathfinder novel from Paizo Publishing, and Nathan talks about the upcoming Gamer’s Haven Halloween Party.
We wrap things up with some random encounters and a new installment of Munchies for Munchkins.
What kid raised in recent generations hasn’t pretended to be a superhero at some point: worn a cape, “flown” around, bounced imaginary bullets or shot “blasts of power” from hands or eyes? Why not? After all, the superhero is the perfect modern fantasy: powerful, respected, and loved by the public, but with a message of responsibility, duty, truth, and justice that appeals to parents as well as kids. In countless comic books, graphic novels, cartoons, and live-action television shows and films, superheroes continue to thrill and capture our imagination while also celebrating some of our better qualities. Who wouldn’t want to be a hero?
With ICONS, you can be!
Steve Kenson, the designer of the best-selling Mutants & Masterminds delivers a superpowered new role-playing game, inspired by the fast-playing old-school games and the new generation of narrative role-play! Within its pages are complete rules for character creation, abilities and powers, random adventure generation, a rogue’s gallery of villains, a complete adventure and all the superheroic action you can handle!

About Pathfinder Tales: Prince of Wolves
For half-elven Pathfinder Varian Jeggare and his devil-blooded bodyguard Radovan, things are rarely as they seem. Yet not even the notorious crime-solving duo is prepared for what they find when a search for a missing Pathfinder takes them into the gothic and mist-shrouded mountains of Ustalav. Beset on all sides by noble intrigue, mysterious locals, and the deadly creatures of the night, Varian and Radovan must use both sword and spell to track the strange rumors to their source and uncover a secret of unimaginable proportions, aided in their quest by a pack of sinister werewolves and a mysterious mute priestess. But it’ll take more than merely solving the mystery to finish this job. For shadowy figures have taken note of the pair’s investigations, and the forces of darkness are set on making sure neither man gets out of Ustalav alive…
From fan-favorite author Dave Gross comes a new fantastical mystery set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
