Looking for weirdness

So my campaign is going well. The players are eating up the primary conspiracy and the Noble Player is really enjoying the politics but my Church player has limited utility for right now. The next session will have a fairly challenging combat and the priest isn't much of a fighter so I'd like a nice...

Re: FS as Passion Play

Cadiz Redemption is somewhat in the Passion Play format. It's theme is Hope and Hopelessness. We start each game with a series of analytical questions about the story and the characters as part of XP. The interrogative isn't always tied to the theme but it always relates to the previous session so t...

Empress of the Known Worlds

As I work over the political themes of the Cadiz Game I keep coming back to this jarring concept that Salandra Decados is very possible going to be the Empress. It's not the gruesome contemplation of a terrifying Decados Noble with one hand on the scepter that rules all of mankind, but more the impl...

Re: Omega Gospels pdf!

Every few months I look at those quotes and think "I should compile those in one booklet in case a church player wants to jot together something Gospelly sounding to say".

Re: What would you rather fight?

I chose the early encounters specifically for enemies that have a weak interest in the fight and an inclination to show mercy. The Hironem fighters are just settlement defenders, not looking to spill blood if they can avoid it. The Militia aren't used to facing real threats, the gangsters and protes...

What would you rather fight?

So Cadiz Redemption needs a decent fight. The characters are a bit green and not up for much of a challenge but the players are likely spoiling for a bit of blood. The problem is I've been wrestling with who the antagonists are for two weeks and can't decide. If you were playing in a relatively new ...

Re: Map of BSII

I'd actually really like to see more detailed maps for Fading Suns. I just spent three evenings working in MS Paint to build a map of a section of Cadiz and I must say that it looks like someone made it with MS Paint. Even a nice color 11x17 center-fold map that shows some scale and vague typography...

Re: Ceremony to become Questing Knight

Alexius is the head of the order so I imagine he personally ordains new inductees. And why wouldn't he? It inspires a kind of loyalty to know that the Emperor himself has chosen you to save the known worlds. The Ceremony is only moderately formal in that there is a public display of the knighting an...

Re: How long are...

We had previously figured Upbringing was about 12 and each additional step was 4 more years but that rough estimation meant for final age and it may not work for what you're planning. Based on the description I would assume that Upbringing is up to the age you would calculate that schooling starts, ...

Re: Your Fading Suns Timeline

We played around with the history of the game a bit when we ran the Dogs of War game. Mostly with the Late Emperor Wars Li-Halan Siege of Malignitus and the purge of the Precepters by Temple Avesti forces. I had put a small city on the map specifically for the impact of the players knowing that it d...
