Dungeon23 – Mokuy hex map Australia – version 1

Not actually called Australia circa 1830 of course, but for reference.

Mokuy Australia hex map

A few different terrain types I think:

  • Coastal
  • Mountain
  • Desert
  • Rainforest
  • Heavy Bush
  • Bush
  • Alluvial
  • Grassland
  • Volcanic – for Lord Howe Island, or as the more egotistical residents like to term it, Ruby Base
  • Pine – for venturing to Norfolk Island

    Version with coordinates to come

    Dungeon23 – The Land Pirahnas of Lord Howe Island

    In 2044, wallabies have mutated to have the personality and dentition of sharks and “land pirahna is a colloquial term.

    Lord Howe Island was discovered in 1788. https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Howe_Island

    The Doctors Ruby have taken advantage of this wildlife mutation to import and breed them to roam the island. Not good for the local fauna, but they soon deal with any unsuspecting visitors in an environmentally friendly manner.

    Land Pirahnas are particularly good at detecting methane.

    First thoughts:

    AC 12, HD 2, Bite: 2d4, Kick: 1d4, Tail:1d3

    Can use claws for minor effect or tails like cudgels if wanting to leap away, which is not very likely in a kill frenzy. Add morale modifiers for that.

    FATE: Fight Fire – for Marcus Licinius Crassus, the Richest Man In Rome

    An early organised firefighting brigade. Let’s make a deal, see what and who we can save for you.

    Draft 1.0 April 23, 2013 – Blue Tyson

    Today’s firefighters are often hailed as heroes. In Ancient Rome and earlier times, a rather more mercenary situation. Those afflicted with a blaze would still be happy to see them, but in stressful times may not make the best financial decisions with regards to their property.


    The man in charge of the whole five hundred strong operation is detailed below, as is his lead team of firefighters, with their boss, muscle, driver, climber and water man. Lieutenant, Vent, Drive, Roof and Can in Fight Fire terminology if you like.

    You can assume they are well outfitted with any gear that they want, shields, types of armour, padding, buckets, primitive hoses or anything they could invent, or pay someone to come up with. This is a new industry for the city and they are at the forefront.

    The general operation is – and Crassus himself may lead if a big or important propety – find a fire, offer to put it out and save the property. Putting it out may involve knocking the building down so it burns in on itself. Otherwise some really hazardous firefighting time if there are people and buildings and other items to save.

    Crassus is not a man you want to disappoint. Crime, skullduggery, politics, slavery, war, bribery and more will form the backdrop for this sort of operation. Will someone start a rival operation that could lead to bloodshed?

    FASERIP – basic human attributes

    Physique is split compared to Core, into a Strength component and an Endurance component, the latter of which should be used for the Stress track. Reason is native intelligence.

    Fighting (Fight)
    Agility (Athletics)
    Intuition (Notice)
    Psyche (Will)


    Popularity is a measure of charisma, reputation and public influence. If you like, bad people can have a negative popularity ladder equivalent. Supervillains, mass murderers, ruthless thugs in The Ball, etc.
