I recently acquired Cinderheim from the Bundle of Holding. I also acquired World vs. Hero because I've always been hesitant to use Word Mill's Mythic. I try it, I feel uncomfortable with the complexity, then I stop. This session, I am devoting entirely to Word Mill : besides possibly using Mythic as a GM emulator, I want to play test The Adventure Crafter for creating adventure seeds and The Location Crafter for scene locations. So this will confine me to 80% Word Mill with a splash of Cinderheim because : 1. I like pulp sword and sorcery and 2. Dark Sun simplifed sounds enticing. And maybe just a tiny bit of OSR D&D because classic D&D is cool. And a small token reference to Marvel Superheroes because that's where I got inspiration from for quantifying the suit abilities.
And can I just add (once again), I hate how Blogger has no idea that there is no line break after some of these colons? I've literally spent an hour editing this to no avail.
Genre : Fantasy
Size : The Seven Kingdoms
A large desert containing seven oases. Each oasis is governed by a warlord who swears fealty
to one of the seven demons. The sun burns at a hundred degrees or more, limned by solar barbs. The desert is harsh and cruel, drawing in explorers from foreign lands, but they never escape. The immigrants that survive maintain that the lands outside of Cinderheim are green and verdant; Cinderheim is the anomaly.

Tarn, Human Rogue of The Architects
Tarn’s brown eyes hold a steely gaze; his umber hair cropped short. A lithe body wrapped in
simple, common clothes. Tarn found himself on the streets of Narak, making a living
amongst the stone and brick buildings. He was safe within the walls held by Amuneta the
Liberator with her promise of keeping the wrongfully accused safe. It was that same liberty
that introduced Tarn to The Architects, an organization that wants to depose the current
regime of the seven demon lords.
