Realm Guide 17: The Snakelands of Old

By on 30 June 2014

For two millennia the snakemen of old have been spoken of only as ghosts, for it has long been known they were destroyed by the armies of mighty Hekata. If only such tales were true. Entering a state of self-imposed exile, the ophidae have waited patiently for the signal for them to emerge once and rebuild their once glorious empire. At long last the stars have aligned. Nomads in the surrounding regions sense a dark presence in the Snakelands, and fear once again sweeps across the desert. The serpent is on the ascent.

Inside you’ll find:

  • A new Professional Edge – Snake Charmer.
  • Information on ophidae society and their views on racial purity.
  • An overview of the many hazards that await explorers.
  • 9 new locations to explore, including the City of the Firmament and the Whispering Oasis.
  • 3 new major NPCs.
  • A new festival honoring Shamash, god of the sun.
  • Ideas for why heroes may visit the Snakelands and adventure seeds.
  • Details on Ss’esslis, the god of the ophidae, and Ningirama, deity of protection from snakes.
  • 4 new monsters.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
