Persian Calendar

Hullo, folks,

Given that Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk uses a seasonal kind of thing, I was wondering...

Does anyone have a good reference they can share for a Persian calendar and dating system that can be used in the game?

Thanks, in advance. :)

SoUT Bestiary Thoughts

Hullo, folks, One of the things I noticed about the Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk RPG is that in terms of the bestiary... ...there are a good selection of stuff, but not a lot of the kinds of beasties I expected to find in the game, in terms of Persian mythology and other things. Until there is a bestiary d...

Re: Friday Night Gaming Group Character Creation I

Hullo, Graham, Very nice indeed. They "feel" like the soft or characters i imagined when i wrote the game... if you know what I mean. Keep updating this! Thanks for the kind words, my friend. :) I plan to update this post when the players do up their Sorcerer characters, and rather looking forward t...

Re: Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself...

Hullo, Sam, (Or do you prefer Bifford?) :) Greetings and salutation. Thank you. Nice to be here. :) Which incarnation of the Master would you be? The pictured one or some other? Ah, a Doctor Who fan as well? Well-met! :) I am the Roger Delgado incarnation of The Master, and proud of it! Anyway, welc...

Friday Night Gaming Group Character Creation I

Hullo, folks, Well, in preparation for running a game of Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk with my Friday night players, they began the process of character creation for the game this past Friday night. The five players created twenty (20!!) characters for their game, the three Minor characters and the Major ch...

Detailed Examples of SoUT Character Creation

Hullo, folks, Given that I'll be starting a campaign of Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk with my Friday gaming group shortly, thought I'd post this here. I've done up two very detailed examples of character creation for the game on my blog, and provide the links here. The First, Natifa the Cook https://jkahane...

Re: Future Product for SoUT?

Hullo, Graham, I had two further books in my mind, with one being the World Guide and the other the Bestiary! So you have read my mind there. One of the things I will say here is that while I'd love to see the Bestiary (what happened to the Roc, by the way? it's not in the main book), the City Guide...

Re: Adventures for SoUT

Hullo, Graham, The other parts will not take as long, and I am seeing what I can do to get some other short adventures written. This is excellent, and better, news, to be honest. While I'd like the other parts of the Broken Crown scenario (by the way, how many parts are there to it?) sooner rather t...

Future Product for SoUT?

Hullo, folks, So, now that the City Guide and Spellbook are out, inquiring minds (okay, my inquiring mind...) want to know: What's next for Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk in terms of game products? Are there plans to do any adventures for the game? Are there plans to do a bestiary of some sort? Are there pla...

Adventures for SoUT

Hullo, folks, One of the biggest disappointments to me when Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk came out was that there was no Quickstart adventure for the game, and there was no actual short scenario included in the rulebook. I am pretty crap when it comes to writing adventures these days, mainly because my hand...

Inspirations on Persian Mythology

Hullo, folks, Signed up on the forums recently. Haven't run Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk yet, simply because...well, that will be a separate post. :) However, the game is based more on Persian mythology, rather than Arabic, but the rulebook doesn't include a little bibliography of books that folks can sour...

I'm an amateur archaeologist and palaeontologist, and love games that involve either or both of those in so...
