Hidden Lords of Khare

Post by dipsomancer » Thu Feb 27, 2020 4:53 pm

So I'm currently trying to put together an adventure for my players set in Khare, and while trying to find if anyone had expanded on what is written within the Sorcery books I noticed on the Fandom wiki it mentions that the Third Lord of Khare is a Vampire .. does anyone know where this comes from ? I can't remember seeing it in the book.

I mean, I like the idea, particularly if they also turn out to be an agent of the Archmage - it then makes a nice narrative that they where behind the murder of the death-wraith and the blinding of the beggar, perhaps also engineering the first lord into leaving of the city. (Although I also like the idea that the First Lord left nearly a decade ago and didn't bother coming back and its just part of the culture now to refer to them being away 'sailing up the Jabair').

The Sorcery! App game has really expanded on Khare.

A blog about writing gamebooks. My musings on how to write a gamebook and what makes a good gamebook.

While I enjoyed the Sorcery App game, I preferred a less... busy Khare. Khare struck me as being almost like a fantastical version of Medieval Rome, full of ruins that the people live amongst, depopulated relative to its Imperial height. If I was to run Sorcery again, I'd draw more inspiration from "capriccio" paintings.

I wrote about that art style here:

As for Khare, here's our play reports from years back:
