It’s been a minute (thanks to a brief stop in Eberron) but I’m back with more information on Dark Eras 2 for the Chronicles of Darkness. In Part 1 and Part 2 I talked about the truly ancient settings in the book and now we’re getting a little closer to present day, but that doesn’t mean it’s getting any less crazy!Continue reading “Dark Eras 2: Part 3”
Welcome back to another addition to the series on the Chronicles of Darkness. After laying out seven items for the new World of Darkness I’ve gone through many different gamelines, as listed at the bottom of that article. The last thing I wrote about were the mummies of Mummy: The Curse who were deathless sorcerers from the dawn of time. Today we’re going to be looking at another set of people from beyond death, though these ones are a little closer to home. Just simple dead people trying to make the best of their situation.
We did it! This is the last one. I’ve covered everything up the year 1000 CE in the last posts (first the 20th century, the the 19th, then the next three hundred years, and then five hundred in one go). We’ve gotten back to the periods called “classical” or “ancient” depending on who you ask and we’re just going to sprint for the finish at this point! Get ready to go through the Roman Empire, the Greeks, the Egyptian kingdoms, and all the way to the Stone Age!
Of course, it’s all spoiled a little by the upcoming Dark Eras 2 (now on Kickstarter!) which will add a whole slew of new settings to the list. Still, more historical settings is inherently a good thing as far as I’m concerned so more power to them!
