The folio only deals with Inzae as part of the setting as a whole. In this, Inzae is only briefly mentioned as part of an entry on the Rings of Brass, and when detailing the dimensional makeup of the setting.

Be sure to tell her that you don't love and collect Corvettes or WWII Nazi helmets ~ costing thousands dollars.

No, you buy and collect fun gaming stuff that's much cheaper - and that will increase in value and if you kick the bucket earlier than usual, she can sell yer stuff and then be rich!!!

OK, I need to get busy and get my order in.
'Course, it's not like I haven't been busy buying stuff lately.

eBay, TLG, NobleKnight, fellow DF'ers, PPP all have my money from current purchases.

Is there no end to the madness of "buying" stuff for my gaming world???

I feel your pain Rhu. After coming back from that orgy of gamingness called GenCon, my wallet is crying out in pain. This time of year is usually crazy for gaming... and it get's me every year. I guess it get's Rhu too.

I think Tree is kidding.

Inzae is done. Has been for quite some time.

It's all in Davis' head and the earlier mods. It only needs to be C&C 'ified. But I shouldn't think it'll take too long. Just a matter of resources.

Hmm, I think the Trolls need to generate an extra head for both Davis and Steve and then mebbe 2 extra arms or so and then they should be ready to roll out more stuff.

[In a forest clearing, late at night . . . William, Bert, Tom, Steve & Davis are sitting around their campfire - very hungry. In walks a skobbit. ]

Following up . . .

For anyone that hasn't seen the Codex of Erde, they will really enjoy this product. Top notch. Color, maps, layout, presentation and content ~ all excellent.

Seriously, anyone who is interested in Aihrde, this is a MUST HAVE!

Enjoy.

Got my copy of the folio this week, and having just finished going through it I'd like to give my congrats - the setting is indeed quite good and being new to Aihrde I can say it offers enormous opportunities. My group will be getting back together and I think I will run Aihrde for this campaign.

The books are really good - complete enough to provide the basics of the world, the history, nations etc. I really like the setting of Unklar's 1000 year reign and the world just now emerging from the Winter Dark. I also like that the folio setting is kept concise and doesn't overload with too much extraneous material, really giving a solid base without overwhelming me - pretty much my kind of setup. It's the first new setting I've picked up in a long time that I can say "stuck" with me after my initial read.

The maps are gorgeous in artistry (congrats Peter), although as I mentioned on another thread post I kind of wish they were just a bit larger with more map detail (guess this is just my dream that one day I'd have the same experience as I did in 1982 opening Greyhawk for the 1st time and spreading those maps before me). Still, they are good, and I know that by NOT being so detailed they allow for a lot of CK flexibility in placing stuff into the setting.

As I said, pretty sure I'll run an Aihrde campaign soon. Thinking of using the idea suggested elsewhere here of starting with classic B2 converted (set in the lands on the northern edge of the Kellerwald), then move into the A series, adding some homebrewed intermediate stuff.

Again, congrats to Steve, Davis, Peter et all on this!
P.S. Still love my own setting Ilshara, but it's good to find a published one that I like to vary campaigns.

Pretty solid all around -

Only caught two very little things - In one timeline they still had the word "Erde" instead of Aihrde and in discussion of one of the human lines they refer to their worship of Odin and Thor, who are not listed in pantheon (assuming the guys used these Norse mythologies during their games and development). Other than those two very minor things I didn't catch anything else.

I think that the references to Odin and Thor would be for the Northman pantheons, which are based off of the real world Norse mythos. At least that is my understanding from the Codex and the AWD blue booklet.

I was thinking that might be the case - that the Northern pantheons were exclusive of the cradle of the world pantheon and so used the Norse legends. Thanks Rigon!
