Border Kingdoms - Who Are They? table

It's a broad topic, but it's essentially anything pre-gun era. Warrior Heroes, Red Sand Blue Sky, Rally Round the King for a start.

Border Kingdoms - Who Are They? table

This one is for Mr Easyeight.

Whilst travelling in the Border Kingdoms I have realised there is no Who Are They table for travelling. The only Who Are They table is for carousing encounters. Curiously it contains the possibility of Goblins & Orcs. In a tavern?!

Help! And thank you in advance ;)

The Border Kingdoms are more progressive than other areas. I mean, if an Orc or Goblin (well, bunches of Goblins) want a drink and they have the coin, why not?

Yeah, if you're travelling in the eastern Border Kingdoms in Jellway, that could happen. That's the edge of human settlements in the Border Kingdoms, and people may end up hiring or working with Orcs and Goblins. Sometimes if a Goblin tribe comes out on the losing end of a tribal war, those that don't get enslaved may end up in Jellway, forming "barrios" in some settlements. Orcs are sometimes hired as guards, etc., or they could be outcasts and so on. That's why the Talomir "Mooks" scenario book takes place in the Border Kingdoms, basically in Jellway.

Try these Kingdom by Kingdom "Who Are They" tables:

Thanks for the info and the tables. Great stuff. This really changes my conception of the Border Kingdoms. I hadn't appreciated how fluid they were. I really like this area of Talomir and the more I know about it, the better my games.

Sorry for the late reply. Forgot to subscribe to the thread!
