Kingmaker in the 5 Moons of Allune
Meta Campaign Information
The Five Moons of Lune Campaign – Meta Campaign Information
This campaign has several important features:
- Uses a slightly house-ruled version of the Pathfinder ruleset.
- Is in the upper realms of low fantasy.
- Uses a slow method of character advancement.
- The majority of NPCs are 6th level or lower.
- All pathfinder classes and archetypes are available except for the wizard which has been revised as the Mage.
- Coinage is scarce, metals are highly valued, magical items are rare and may be twisted in dark or unusual ways.
- Gems are the currency of highest value.
- Small areas of civilized settlements have been cut out of the vast bulk of the uncivilized world. There are no world maps and indeed most of the world is unknown or unexplored.
- There are numerous examples and evidence of a previous advanced human culture that has long since died out. Castles, monuments and other structures still exist.
- The world is deadly and there is no GM safety net. Players play smart or quickly have their characters killed. Keeping your character alive and healthy will be a challenge (but hopefully a very rewarding one).
- This world uses aspects of Golarion (the generic Pathfinder world) but has twisted them into a darker world.
- The majority of the population is human. Elves and Dwarves live in their own regions of the world and in the main have little time for humans.
- Night is always considered dangerous. Most of the nastier creatures are nocturnal and so there is a frantic closing of establishments as dusk approaches. Most people in smaller settlements will not venture out after dark.
- The five moons are the sole source of light and heat (reflected off an unseen Sun behind the immobile planet). Two of these satellite moons provide the majority of reflected heat and light while the other three provide minimal beneficial reflection.
- As such, periods of light and dark are erratic with only the periodioc constancy of the fifth red moon providing a reliable passing of time. A month is ended when only a single appearance of one of the lesser moons lights the night sky. A year ends when all five moons are absent from the night sky.
