This vision takes place after the most recent game. As of this writing, I haven’t actually written the sessions for those games. I just wanted to get this out ther ASAP because it matters to the character, the player, and the world. And it seemed awesome.
As Sieglinde lays down to sleep after her most recent adventure, having helped push back the bone slime into the gap opened to the Aspect of the Moon of Death, Lythronax, by Malfrecues Nul, she is troubled in her thoughts. She knows that she must, by the decree of her stewardship to the moon Maya – counter and couple to Lythronax that completes the twin, Circumago – help all those that she can lead the best lives they may. Yet… She is driven by her own desire to find her mother.
Finding your way on the faces of the Coin is confusing for someone coming from an oblate spherical world, such as Earth. But there are cardinal directions similar to those found on fatter planets. Continue reading
Over the week since the last expedition into the main body of the old prison, there has been a lot of commotion in the Keep on the Borderlands. A few adventurers have arrived from various realms around the Coin, including Bractoon, a mysterious human warlock with an air of darkness about him. He ostensibly says he’s here to map the fringes of the Kingdom. He is a member of the enigmatic Guild of Cartographers, an organization that has accumulated secrets about the Coin from the Great Ice Wall of the rim to the lava fields surrounding the Sun’s Retreat. As Bodkin enters the keep’s refectory after a day of scouting the countryside, looking rather lost in his thoughts, Bractoon walks quickly and purposefully up behind him, reaching into his cloak… Continue reading
The moons are called by many names among the denizens of The Coin, but few have devoted as much time to the study of these mysterious orbs as the druids of the Circle of the Moons. The lore of the moons has been passed down and built upon for thousands of years since the days when the druids first separated themselves into separate Circles of knowledge. Song and chant, poem and tome, all works of druidic scholarship of the moon domain seek to elucidate these luminous bodies and illuminate their effects upon The Coin. Continue reading
Bodkin sat in the crook of two branches that spread out from the ancient oak in a fractal pattern that bespoke the ancient and deep magic of this place. This was his first High Council meeting, and he would have felt honored but for the fact that every druid he knew or had ever heard of had received a similar invitation from one of the numerous avian messengers sent out the Big Thinkers. Bodkin thought of himself as a small fellow, and was, in fact, quite small in stature, standing but half the height of the numerous brown and green clad humans, with their flowing white beards and kind, knowing eyes.

While the concept of all powerful monotheistic or pantheistic creator gods does exist on the Coin, most cultures do not worship them, and many doubt their existence altogether. The major religions tend to form around the domains of existence as portrayed by the aspects of the moons. Other worship is regarded as misguided at best and dangerously cultish at worst.

One of the biggest mysteries of the Coin of the World is in plain sight almost every day. The moons remain ever enigmatic. Nobody is even sure how many there are. The two common theories are that there are either ten separate moons that make sporadic appearances… Or there is simply one that shows ten different faces and can be in different places in the sky at the same time. We can place our knowledge of the moons into three main categories: 1) Facts 2) Rumors 3) Speculation Continue reading
