This is what I have made so far after this and last night’s milling, I might retread some of this and refocus later this week and on the weekend. Also, this is more geared to 5e, but I am partial to do some Race-as-Class homebrewing so all the draconics can be usable and help drive the feel and focus in either OSE or B/X, but that is a later sort of project.
Gygax 75 - Sabaku no Doragon
Week 1 - Concept
Sabaku no doragon is a setting where the primary player races are the Draconics: Dragonborn, Kobolds, Dragon Fera, Firebrand and the Dragons themselves.
Driven from the Material Plane, the Draconics set out into the void of the starry Ethereal. Guided by dreams and visions from their Ancestors and Gods alike, the Draconics sailed headlong into the unknown.
Passing through magical portals and facing the horrors of the Ethereal, the fleet of ships discovered a plane void of threats upon initial glance and scouting. What they discover is an ancient plane of reality where it is both reality’s crossroads and it’s dumping ground.
Now 300 years after landing upon their new world, they have begun pressing out into the wilderness beyond the small river basin they had settled in.
- Primary Playable Races are all Draconic
- Sabaku No Doragon is a plane filled with ancient sites and the evidence of previous groups
- Exploration and Dungeon Delving is the primary focus
Link to Mood Board: https://pin.it/eQpPHGL
The Mood Board is kind of thrown together, but in my mind, the world has a Bronze Age/John Carter of Mars kind of feel. Deserts and mild seas with characters adventuring in Bronze Gear and battling in places seemingly ripped from ancient antiquity.
The different Races are also showcased in the Mood Board as well, though this will likely be tweaked a little bit as I find more stuff.
