Lost Subspecies of Earth

Published on 05.02.2016

While the astral field of the Earth Belt produces various kinds of Shanrazi first and foremost, there are patches where the old subspecies of ancient Earth appear—usually in areas where the astral field is considered the most pure.

“Sheesh, ‘pure’—who defines that? Corruption has absolutely nothing to do with it.”
–Piiraäeus, Spine Lord

“They probably mean it in the sense that the twisted astral field has the same composition as on old Earth.”
–Doc Bonebreaker, Phobos Rising

About People and Places

Published on 11.11.2015 by Mikko Göpfert

When picking up a new system and starting a new roleplaying campaign, it’s usually the gamemaster’s responsibility to create the setting within the game world, including its important locations, gamemaster characters, and creatures. The players mostly resort to the creation of their own player characters. Opening this process of creation up to the whole group, however, as described in the People & Places chapter in the Equinox Setting Guide, has a great influence on how you, both the gamemaster and the players, experience the game later.

If you haven’t read said chapter yet I highly recommend it, even if you don’t plan on running an equinox campaign. What it describes can easily be adapted and applied to most other roleplaying games out there. Anyway, here’s a quick overview.

Earth Nexus Schematic

Here's the Earth Nexus Schematic as presented in the Equinox Setting Guide, an abstract view of the various fold clusters and their relation to Gateway Station and the Earth Belt.

The technical/arcane look was designed by Angus McNicholl. We're thinking about a larger (poster?) version of the schematic, adding all locations of the Earth Belt as well. What do you think?
