Expanded random name lists for these, along with the Azhar (Freeport Salamanders) has now been added to the Names of Rul document, bringing it to 8 pages of random names!

Monarchies of Mau - Random Cat Breed Families

Although the actual breed of a cat plays no mechanical role in Monarchies of Mau, it's fun to know what breed family your cat is from even if their allegiance lies with one of the major noble houses. To that end I've created a table of 50 cat breeds so that folks can roll for or pick an appropriate breed family.

You can grab it in the usual spot!

Monarchies of Mau - Random Footpad, Mancer, and Wanderer Items

I've created random tables for generating the basic forms of the Footpad's valuable item, Mancer's bone focus, and Wanderer's musical instrument for the Monarchies of Mau RPG. Grab it in Some of My RPG Materials as normal.

Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau Files Update

With the Monarchies of Mau Kickstarter underway and the Early Access available, I've updated several of my Pugmire downloads to reference Mau also, including adding a few distinct rules differences to how cat characters operate from MoM.

I'm also going to put together some files for Mau pretty soon including random generators for the appearance of a Mancer's bone focus and the form of the Footpad's expensive stolen item.

TimeWatch Enemies - Henry "Long Ben" Every

Arguably the most successful pirate in history, Henry Every/Avery was born in the West Country of England and served in the Royal Navy until 1690, became a slave trader, returned to seamanship, and eventually mutinied in 1694. Stealing the ship Charles II (which he renamed the Fancy) he was voted as the captain and for two years made a number of successful piratical raids. In cooperation with several other pirate vessels, he assumed command of a raid against a 25-ship Grand Mughal convoy in 1695, successfully seizing the Fateh Muhammad and Gunsway after several hours of vicious hand-to-hand combat on deck. In the process, he had captured £600,000 in precious metals and jewels (the equivalent of over £57 million in today's currency!). Every and his crew then set upon the survivors of the vessels with horrible cruelty and rapine.

The raid so damaged relations between England and the Mughals that a huge bounty was placed upon Every and his men. They fled and split company, 24 being captured eventually, but Every eluded capture and seemed to vanish from all records. He now raids the timelines instead!

TimeWatch Agents - Ambiorix

One of the princes of the Eburones, a Belgic tribe in NE Gaul, Ambiorix rebelled against the invading Romans under Julius Caesar. Although the Eburones defeated a whole legion and five cohorts under Ambiorix, the Romans responded by wiping out the Eburones over the next few years though according to the writer Florus, Ambiorix and his men escaped across the Rhine and disappeared without a trace. For his part, Ambiorix was recruited by TimeWatch.

Shadow of the Demon Lord - Formatted Errata

I've taken the official SotDL Errata document and given it a spruce up. Reorganised and reformatted to make it a little easier to use at the table, more attractive, and so that it fits nicely onto a single sheet of paper. Grab it from the usual location on my blog!
