Grey Moor was the site of our very first campaign. At level one, the players stepped off the boat in the city of Bayhaven. By the time they were done they had walked all over the island many times, broken an evil curse that was killing the crops and draining the land of life, and then joined in a battle to prevent a single greedy nobleman for siezing control of the Island. Along the way they teamed up with Eomer and Endo and attained level 3.
Grey Moor is about 90% human, 5% halfling, and 5% “everyone else”. Dwarves are known to live in the mountains but their number is not known so they are not included in this total. Elves are very uncommon and usually never leave Bayhaven. The whole island is seen as rather bumpkin-ish to the other islands.
The area north of the mountains is uninhabited. The coast this mostly low rocky cliffs or very steep slopes. In other places, the coastal area is shallow and rocky. This means that for a majority of the island it was difficult or impossible to bring in large ships safely.
Bayhaven was the only good port for ships capable of inter-island travel. The others couldn’t support much more than small fishing vessels. It is also the biggest and most sophisticated city.
The town of Stackroot is home to a modest but profitable gemstone mine. About a third of the population is Halfling. The Halflings work the mine, while the humans handle the governing of the city and growing of crops.
A little infomation on the city of Bridgehold and Highstone Monastery can be gleaned from Endo’s backstory.
The other cities are just tiny little farming villages and not worth mentioning here.
At the end of our first campaign, the players had founded a new city, knocked a nobleman out of power, and established the council of Grey Moor.
A game I love. It has a solid main story and a couple of really obnoxious, cringy, incoherent side-plots in it. What happened here?
How I Plan To Rule This Dumb Industry
Here is how I'd conquer the game-publishing business. (Hint: NOT by copying EA, 2K, Activision, Take-Two, or Ubisoft.)
The Mistakes DOOM Didn't Make
How did this game avoid all the usual stupidity that ruins remakes of classic titles?
Lost Laughs in Leisure Suit Larry
Why was this classic adventure game so funny in the 80's, and why did it stop being funny?
Even allegedly smart people can make life-changing blunders that seem very, very obvious in retrospect.
