TOPIC: True Dungeon 2017 Newsletter Info

True Dungeon 2017 Newsletter Info 7 years 10 months ago #1

Here's some interesting info from the Newsletter on the 2017 Dungeons, maybe it can help us with our token suggestions. I haven't read the books, can anyone summarize the environment, beyond Twilight faerie world of the Fae?

True Dungeon 2017

As some of you may have guessed from the clues left in this year's dungeons, the adventures in 2017 will take place in the amazing world created by author Patrick Rothfuss in his "Name of the Wind" and "Wise Man's Fears" novels. We are working with Pat to create events located inside the twilight faerie world of "The Fae" -- as well as another one that starts at a unremarkable inn inside a small farming community.

I wonder if 2017 "Fae" stuff will be affected/compatible with previous year's "Fey" stuff

It seems odd that they're going to model it after the Fae in the book (especially because it's only really described in any length in the last 100 maybe 200 pages of "Wise Man's Fears". Maybe there will be element control, there might be a token that helps prevent ranged damage based after a contraption the main character makes, there will probably be a magical cloak made after the cloak the main character is given in the fae, probably lots of bard items because Kvothe is essentially a bard that can cast innate magic. As far as the Fae goes their might be mention of the Unseelie queen, a nymph, and an evil tree that can tell the future (but you might go mad with the knowledge).

The books are really really good, but personally I was hoping for a different version of the Fae...

There already is a token that helps prevent ranged damage... Kvothe's Bloodless

Doh!... I knew that... We actually have that token. There could be similar items though, such as the sticks that can alert eachother from far away (maybe a bonus to not being surprised for a room)?

Lol... I'm very excited about what they can come up with.

Interesting.

I thought the original plan was to chase the Mind Flayer through the planes of existence.

However, looks like the partnership with Patrick Rothfuss (started with Kvothe's Bloodless) is taking things in an unexpected direction.

Are there RPG sourcebooks with monster stats for the critters in this setting? Or is everything just in the novels for now?
