Alyeskan Gazetteer: Broken Spires

Another location nestled amongst the Bastion Peaks, though close to the Wulflands, is the pirate haven and outlaw town of Broken Spires.

This shanty town that stands defiantly against the Law is infamous across Alyeska and beyond.

With artwork (chiefly paying for it all) being the major hurdle for getting Frozen Skies released I'm consdiering the idea of releasing a barebones playtest version, then later on a more tidied up 'beta' version as a Pay What You Want PDF. It gets something out for Frozen Skies whilst at the same time work can continue on getting out the proper version.

Thoughts?

Now available as Pay What You Want; The Frozen Skies Setting Primer

Alyeska.

A frontier land largely at the mercy of the savage Wulvers since the end of the Great Darmonican War, barely enough soldiers left to defend the rump of the Commonwealth's once extensive colonial holdings. With many towns cut off and large swathes of territory overrun by the beasts the safest form of transport is by air, but the breakdown in law and order as given rise to scoundrels like sky pirates and bandits.

Alyeska's frozen skies are increasingly becoming a dangerous place to be.

This primer gives an overview of heart of the Frozen Skies setting; The Continent of Alyeska.

In addition it offers a brief guide to the Commonwealth and its main factions in Alyeska, Wulvers and their stats along with a selection of gear to allow you to start playing in the Frozen Skies setting.

More of an official survey this time round, though only four questions that need answering. This WILL effect the development of Frozen Skies so answers are sought after.
