Tom and Brenda's Shaker: Lore Update

Tom and Brenda's oldschool RPG Shaker, currently running a rather slow Kickstarter campaign, has received a new update. It presents the world map of the game and some related lore snippets:

Hey, folks, we've been having discussions about the world of Antera...and here is the current world map! There may be slight refinements as we go... and the places, races, and story deepens. Check it out!

THE WORLD OF ANTERA

[​IMG]

Connelly (or whoever you customize as your main character) and team find themselves on a world they've visited before, but only in a narrow sense, under strict orders. Now they will be required to explore it more deeply to find out what happened...and if there is the possibility of any way home. If not, it's time to settle in and find their place in this new world!

This area is Blade Sector, the second sector in the way Shaker operatives have divided up this world and its primary inhabitation sites. Sector names are based on locally familiar words, so that an off-mention will not sound strange. Anvil Sector is inhabited, but is not near the Delta Node on Antera.

Here are a few highlighted places in the area the game will take place in:

THE HUB CITY: LOKE

Loke is a beautiful city on the water, a thriving city for trade and a meeting place for all races. This has been the team's first stop on all their missions.

FELAIRN FOREST: THE SURVIVORS

Living in Rhun-Daar, the humanoid race of the Paldor are survivors of a great onslaught of creatures from Darkling Crag. They won the war, but at a dear loss to their population. Those remaining have an intense mistrust of strangers.

BYRGAAD: CITY UPON COLDRISE

Home to wintry-mountain dwellers the Grell, their Mt. Valchonne has at its base lava-heated Valchonne Springs.

PLAINS OF SERE

Dry-cracked plains in the lower regions of the south, below Landsrift. Home to hard-shelled, hardy race known as the Fen-Rasei, who live in the barren city of Tiladi.

WARCHAL SWAMPHOME: THE XYLA

Home to a magical, earthen-borne race know as the Xyla, they are often chaotic, but are immensely useful when facing magical foes, and can learn to enhance their innate ranged attacks.

ARAPATHI JUNGLE: THE CITY OF KALAA

The hirsute race of the Kalakaan mastered their surroundings and became renowned for their healing prowess and subtle fighting skills. Their beliefs do not allow them to use ranged weapons -- a purity of attack lies in landing the personal strike upon the enemy -- but they can grow to be devastating fighters.​
