Today, I’ll be skimming over my Starfinder copy and giving an octopus-with-a-hanglider-eye-view of it for those interested. (I’ve had the PDF for about a week, and the hardcopy arrived today.)
Today we’ll be dipping back into Aethera’s icy world of Orbis Aurea, starting with the inhabitants of the place. One might think a frigid planet like this would be relatively unihabited, but when things live in the void of space a little permanent glaciation isn’t going to stop anyone.
Today I’ll be heading to the outermost planet of the Aethera system, the icy water-aligned world of Orbis Aurea. Home to okanta and giant, as well as immigrant humans, infused, and Paragons, this chill world is as strange as any other in the system, and unique in a few ways. So let’s get started, shall we?
Today, we’ll be visiting a fleshed-out location for Seraos – Atheer-Ohn, an erahthi research station which has some dark secrets woven into it. It was founded when the erahthi saw the humans of Akasaat fielding the Infused, and some among them decided that they only way to see victory was fighting fire with fire – or aetheric infusion with aetheric infusion, in this case.
Today I’ll be continuing my review sweep through Aethera, picking up where I left off yesterday with the gas giant world of Seraos. A beautiful location, given how it even includes planar-style gravity.
As a side note for those interested, my Patreon patrons will begin receiving monthly fleshed-out pieces of material starting this month! July’s offering will be the Wayfarer’s Rest, an inn detailed to be a base location for a campaign. While it will include a few details from the proto-setting I described a few posts back, these can be easily removed or modified and it should be able to be dropped into most fantasy settings!
Today I’ll be continuing my ongoing delve through the Aethera Campaign Setting – something that y’all may have realized by now is much richer than previous settings I’ve done a review of, given that I’m still in what’s technically Chapter Three out of five. In a contrast to my grumbling about other settings, Aethera is one I’d still be fine with running something in of my own volition – the space is large enough and I have no other material piled on it to complicate trying to evoke the themes in it. So with that, let’s go explore Seraos, the World of Air, shall we?
Today continues the review of the Aethera Campaign Setting with a dip into Complex Four, the detailed city that goes with the Amrita Asteroid Belt segment of the book.
