Kingdoms of Sileeria






Update: Interest in the Kingdoms of Sileeria project has been strong so far. 3 of the 10 available kingdoms have so far been claimed. If you'd like the chance to be included in the project, see the new page here: http://www.challengerrpg.com/2012/07/challenger-brainstorming-and-world-map.html

Okay, this isn't official yet, but I have so many great, creative, and awesome people helping me out with Challenger I was thinking it would be neat to do a source-book called "Kingdoms of Sileeria" which would basically be a tribute to the playtester's favorite characters.

Each person who's helped me with Challenger (if they wanted to) would get to have one 'leader' such as a king, queen, emperor or whichever of one of the kingdoms of Sileeria. They could send me their brief notes on appearance of the leader and details of the kingdom. I could then get my artist to do a world map and character sketches based on the info to immortalize everyone's favorite characters in print and the Challenger world lore.

This isn't a 'for sure' yet, but I've had some interest in the project and so far everyone thinks it's a good idea. Dibs have already been called on the 'pirate' kingdom and I can't even begin to tell you about all the awesome stuff in the New Moons Universities lore. The characters, concepts, and locations are amazing! I won't give you any hints here because I don't like to give away other writers ideas unless they've approved it first. ;)

I'm also working on the 'Challenger Approved' symbol which can be placed on Challenger Approved products under the Challenger Open Game License.

Of course, I'm also re-writing a lot. Don't be surprised if you don't see me online much in the next couple of weeks. I'm planning to do a lot of work. Revamping every single power in the book, completely overhauling skills, new henchmen and crafting chapters. My artist also thinks she can do a cool parchment background and awesome page borders for the print version of the book and I think I'll be able to afford 100 or so pieces of artwork from her to fill out the books artwork if I can format it properly into the text (she thinks she can do it). I have another guy working on putting in 'tables' into the book for equipment, lists of classes and races and so forth. If we can manage that it'll probably be in the new print book but e-books don't support tables so you might not see it there except in the Challenger PDF on RPGnow.com

Thanks for reading!
