Welcome back to another look at the Kohtumine! I’m nearing completion, and based on feedback, this adventure setting looks to be nearly 50 pages in length! Hefty! Today I want to share one of the pages of the Kohtumine, a sneak peek at a new category of ship for your enjoyment, the Sloop! Smaller than the ‘regular’ sailing ship, but larger than a keelboat, this heavily upgraded Sloop is the Azure Vestige.Continue reading
Greetings everyone! Tallavanor’s Tales have finally returned! If you’re missing out on things, check here to see what you’ve missed. It’s been quite some time since I’ve written up what’s been happening in our D&D campaign where I play a gunfighter in a low-fantasy style setting. You can hopefully expect more Tallavanor’s Tales in the future, but in the meantime, here’s a rundown of what you’ve missed!Continue reading
You’re going to have to speak up! I can’t hear very well in that ear. That’s what happens when you face down pirates in the Gulf of Hertanzia and…oh, you’re not here for stories. You’re here for the goods. You want weapons? We’ve got them. You want every type of rope imaginable? We don’t have that, but the people across the way do! Exotic metals, gemstones, jewelry, if it isn’t here, then you’ll have to go to the Silks. But no one wants to go there, you come out smelling like a flowerpatch. Unless, of course, you’re looking for perfume, in which case check my cousin’s ship three rows down.

Silk? I have silk. Every color of the rainbow. Stripes? Yes, of course, whatever you prefer. Solid colors are my favorite as well, and that green is a particularly bright and…uh…charming, that’s the word. As you know, we only procure our products from the most organic plantations in the west. The color you’ve chosen comes from a dye made by the illusive Tumril Lion Beetle. Thousands of them are crushed up to get that color. You want a discount? How much are you willing to buy? Free pillow with every 200 feet of material!

Now Cap’n, you don’t want to be anchoring in the Nails. We’re trim fixed up and as seaworthy as possible. We’ll get no rest there, sir, and believe me when I say the headaches will stay for months. That is, if we wake up and still have the boat around us, instead of being scrapped for parts while we sleep. And don’t be eyeing those magical catapults either. They’ll quote you two thousand, and mean two thousand platinum, not gold. Damned tinkerers.

It’s always an honor to guard the Lord’s Cluster. It’s nice and quiet, just a lot of line control. You know, keeping people in line as they’re ready to vote, making sure they don’t touch the voting jars themselves, reminding the observers they can’t talk. The most tiring part is dealing with those damned idiots who think we’ve never dealt with people trying to cheat before. Honestly, what do they think this is? A monarchy?

I swear, if the Kohtumine wasn’t required to be here, there wouldn’t be a ‘here’ at all. Not for very long. The priests alone don’t bring in that much money, and fishing doesn’t pay that well hundred of miles from any major nation. But now that they’ve decided this is part of the Lord of the Ocean’s domain, so every pitiful slop pays for passage here to read the Codes and enjoy the tropical weather. Of course, it could be nicer if the beaches weren’t covered in jagged rocks and the beds weren’t 10 gold – a night!

The Minnows is the most rag-tag collection of ships, boats, outrigger canoes and just plain rafts that you’ll ever see. I swear, if a marooned sailor can tie two pieces of deadwood together an paddle it to the Kohtumine, he’d end up in the Minnows. What’s there to do in the Minnows? Sleep, eat something that was likely a rat, and get a boat to another cluster. That’s it, if you ask me.

You’ve never heard of the Kohtumine? Landlubbers, all of you. The most spectacular meeting of ship captains the world over. Arzac the Bold will be there. Yu’mila Strongprow too. Even the Indigo Pirate will be there, in disguise I’m certain. What is the Kohtumine? Nothing but the most amazing joining of ships, with the peace of the seas and the title of Lord of the Oceans at play. And treasure to be had, lads and ladies, lots of treasure.
Finnigan Tremain, Captain of the Perilous Tide
Just a sneak peek at my next D&D Adventure setting – the Kohtumine (cou-tu-mine) – an amazing meeting of ships that occurs once only every decade! You’ll have to check back in later to learn more! But while I’m designing it, what do you look for in an adventure setting? Charts? NPCs? Interesting Locales? Theme? Tell me below, and subscribe to the blog to get more updates!
