Thanks, Matt! Good to hear that it is almost ready for print which means a PDF will be available soon.  ;D

Quote from: tomcat on Aug 02, 2022, 01:59 PMHey Matt, yea - go to the Free League booth and see what they say about Urban Operations.

I am really waiting to hear when that sourcebook will be release for Twilight 2000 4ed.

Guys at the booth said they are almost ready for final and making ready for print and ship. Next few months or so.

  LO!  Behold on Carrock's crest, high and noble seat of the folk
  With dawn of a new day, the end of an old reign:
  Beorn, giver of laws, of the mighty judge, of the meek protector
  Now to Grimbeorn his son, Wolf-Slayer, Wood-Treader, Speaker to Kings,
  His hearth and mantle leaves, his home to forsake
  In realms known not to Men, lone and forlorn
  His doom long-awaited at last to seek...


Brilliant in the sunlight shine the eyes of Beorn as he embraces his son.  "Ah, my boy!" he roars, pride clear in the timbre of his voice and every fibre of his body, I can't tell you how good it feels to set all that rulership nonsense aside.  I feel stronger than I have in many a long day!" 

"You look it, too," Grimbeorn answers.  True are his words, for though the old bear's limbs have shrunk from their legendary girth of old, they have still the rangy strength of a man who has laboured, and fought, all his life.  The fingers on his hands, though gnarled and twisted, hold the new chieftain's shoulders with a brick-crushing grip.  "Are you sure that you won't stay a little longer?  I'd not mind your advice." 

"Bah!  You don't need it."  Holding his son now at arm's length, Beorn looks him up and down.  You're a hero to the people, beloved by our friends and feared by our foes.  The hounds of the hall love you, and old Iwgar tells me that the ancestor spirits hang on your words.  Why, I've even seen the thengs stop their bickering when you talk, and they won't do that for just anyone.  And if there's a problem in all the world that can be solved with an axe, then you're the man to solve it.  No, you're already everything I could have made you.  I just wish your mother were here to see it." 

The exchange between two men of few words now seemingly at an end, Grimbeorn turns to those he has invited here: Hathcyn his loyal man, Arbogast and Esgalwen his boon companions from long before he rose to fame and power, and Gwaithlim, new-arrived in Wilderland but bearing a wealth of lore of elder days along with bow and blade.  Silent and solemn they stand, bearing witness, and ready they are thereafter to give aid.  For Beorn has announced that he intends a journey high into the Misty Mountains, from which he may well not return. 

"Well," the older man says, "We'd best be going 'fore the day draws too long.  Many miles lie ahead!" 


:ooc: Any RP you want to do, I'm throwing the floor open.  After a bit, or if nobody wants to say anything, I'll move things along.

:ooc: I was holding off saying the same thing 'cause I didn't want to appear persnickety.  Go right ahead.

Take your time, Paul. As you can see - I have been slack, too, about getting a solid narrative up for my Fellowship and setting some stages.

I will be at GenCon Wed-Sun this week so I likely won't be posting until I get back.
Anything y'all interested in that I should check out?

Paul, I was thinking...receive title is thematically what happened, but mechanically that only allows Hathcyn to use his standing in a people other than his own.

I think my actual undertaking should have been Raise Standing and thematically receive a title. I think I have the treasure for that so should probably go with that instead. Thoughts?
