New Material by Uresia Gamers Around
Here's my page for presenting my favorite characters, adventures, and
other Uresian creations by the fans. Join the Uresia
Mailing List to see where most of the material destined for here may
come from. If you have a Uresia-specific creation you'd like to show off
here, your best bet is to post it to the Mailing List first!
The fan archives are open to submissions using whatever rules you like,
or no rules at all. The inevitable legal disclaimer: The use of terms specific
to commercially-published games are not intended as a challenge to ownership
of related trademarks or other properties. If you're an RPG publisher and
would rather no references to your game be allowed here, drop
me a line and your wish is my command. With that out of the way, on
to the fun stuff!
- The Uresia Character Archive
is exactly what it sounds like, and it's probably the best way to participate
in the Fan Archives if you've got a few minutes. Just hammer your favorite
Uresia PC or NPC into a readable format and drop me a line! The archive
already contains an amusing mix of dwarves and satyrs and pixies and slimes
and imps that you can drop easily into your campaign. Good stuff!
- Gnarl's Gnomes, by
Jarrah James, is a cool little take on adding a familiar variety of Gnomes
(suitable for use as PCs) to heaven's grave, alongside the more surreal
- Two Snowmen Adventure Seeds,
by Kelly St. Clair, are short but solid. The Snowmen always seem to raise
eyebrows and interest, and Kelly seems to have captured the idea of them
- Portals of Eternity is a
full-length Uresia adventure module by Timothy Hixon, set in the sprawling-and-brawling
metropolis of Shadow River and using BESM 2nd rules. Timothy,
as you'll discover, takes his submissions very seriously, providing a detailed
breakdown of each act and scene, plus a massive slew of ready-made characters
you can swipe for other adventures. He also makes a point of weaving in
his original additions to the setting while creatively exploiting the established
- Criminally Traditional
is the second Timothy Hixon opus, and includes some recurring elements
from Portals. This time, it's a tale of Orgaltish skullduggery and
lost standing, and once again Timothy weaves between the elements of Shadow
River you've already read about and new material, to good effect. Plus,
yet more ready-made characters!
Uresia Across the Web
Of course, if you have your own webspace, you'll probably prefer to
present your material yourself! If you know a Uresia-related page that
isn't listed here, drop me a line and I'll be very proud to include it.
Dragon is the first Uresia fan-site I know of; it includes some
very cool new character races (I particularly like the Winnowite Vampire)
Attar Harbor is a very evocative bit of work by Kenneth Coble,
describing a port town well worth visiting. Includes a summary of the setting,
BESM templates for character creation, sample characters,
magic and more. The Driftwood is a must-use.
- Three For Adventure
is a campaign chronicle, complete with full character writeups and a running
journal of events. Better still, it's the kind of Uresia gaming I hear
about every now and then and smile BIG at: a whole family gaming together
(two of the players are pre-teens)!
