Bannockburn

Postby Bertjammin » Thu Dec 18, 2014 8:13 am

I'm inspired to write some "stuff" about the League World of Bannockburn but I want to ensure I don't go against any previous material....the question is "what is there?".

I'm know that there's a few paragraphs in the FSR GMG and the 2nd ed Players Companion has a bit in the Gannock section but is anyone aware of any other sources?

Something witty, pithy and observant ought to go here.

Oh well.

There's some mentionings throughout, but nothing much. Merchants of the Jumpweb discusses Bannockburn a little bit in relations to the Musters Guild. One of the chapters in Weird Places discusses a location on Bannockburn, "The Symbiot Isle". And there is also a mentioning of Banockburn in Hawkwood sources somewhere (LotKW? Imp.Survey?), which discusses how House Hawkwood runs a customs stop in the Bannockburn system for all ships destined for Hawkwood Space coming out of Stgmata.

There might be other sources as well...

If I may suggest, make it "Scottish".
I believe it has great plains (low land) and areas full of hills and mountains (high lands).

Maybe some Rob Roy adventures. =P

With a name like Bannockburn one pretty much HAVE to make it Scottish ;)
Roy Roy is over three centuries after the Battle of Bannockburn, but he'd make a great FS character for sure :D

Oh yes, the writing will also involve drinking suitable quantities of whiskey.

Just for authentic inspiration obviously ;)

I need to justify the Gannock with windswept moors and scottish aesthetic in my head.

Heh heh, nice image.
As for whiskey, I think there are some reports of Bannockburn whiskey distileries in canon. That's certainly something you could explore :)

Say, what kind of piece are you thinking of writing, Bertjammin?

At the moment I'm not entirely sure...the world seems to *fit* a bunch of ideas that I have at present but I'm not sure what it'll end up as...drama seeds, NPCs, fiefs, possibly even an unofficial Imperial survey...

Did you know that there is a "Gannock Castle" in Bedfordshire, here in England. That name alone conjures a bunch of ideas for me ;)
