Deities, Divinities and Truly Scary Things Pt. 28

Hey Game Fans, we’re taking a look at some world building ideas and concepts for the home setting i run.  If you’ve checked out my other world building articles, this is the setting that focuses on Lakeport and the larger world around it.  Today i’m going to  take a look at the last of the major deities of the Divine Court.  Today we’re going to be talking about the Slumbering King, the god of Humanity.  Before i get started on him, let me give you a little background for the gods of this world.

Deities, Divinities and Truly Scary Things Pt. 27

Hey Game Fans, we’re taking a look at some world building ideas and concepts for the home setting i run.  If you’ve checked out my other world building articles, this is the setting that focuses on Lakeport and the larger world around it.  Today we’re going to a different approach because the Wanderers worship a  host of different spirits and elemental powers that are similar to Gods and Goddesses, but aren’t quite as coherently defined as the other deities we’ve discussed.

Teroshi of Lakeport

Hey Game Fans, we’re back for the last part of our feature on the Homebrew races for the setting of Lakeport.  Today we’re going to look at the Teroshi.  Like the rest of the Wanderers, they draw from an extra-planar heritage.  There are planes of existence where wondrous and terrible creatures that boggle the imagination roam free.  There are even Planes where plants became the dominant form of life and gained intelligence and sentience on their own.  These are the plants the Teroshi come from.  

Savage Metaverse (Thoughts and ideas)

If you were keeping up with last week, you know how much of a fan we are of Masters of the Metaverse (a fine RPG show on Hyper RPG’s Twitch and Youtube Channels), and the underlying concept that it runs with.  For those that aren’t familiar, the idea is that the player characters have the ability to hop into the bodies of people from parallel worlds and can take control of them to interact with their world for a variety of different reasons.  The tagline for the show is that it’s sort of like Quantum Leap and Sliders had a baby.

Meta Mayhem (Masters of the Metaverse)

Hey Game Fans, we’re back with a spotlight on one of our favorite shows, and the underlying RPG Concept that it has at its core.  Today we’re going to talk about Masters of the Metaverse, a live streaming show on Hyper RPG’s hyperactive, interactive, community driven gaming experience twitch channel.  Masters is put together by the wonderful people at Zombie Orpheus Entertainment, who have a host of entertainment credits under the belt.  (Don’t worry, we’ll toss up some links at the end of this article for the where to finds).  Masters of the Metaverse is one of the more interesting concepts for an RPG experience, and it’s one very successful way to translate the rpg experience around the table to a live show experience that is easy to understand for an audience.  Let’s dig in.
