Moons of Almagra

I had two groups on Facebook that had content for Almagra. Originally, I had created a catch all group called “Otherworlds” but I then created a group specifically for Almagra. Along with my old AD&D 2E group, there was too much redundancy. so, I’ve deleted the AD&D 2E group and the second Almagra group. Now, there is only one Facebook group for Almagra and Otherworlds.

As part of the move back to one catch-all group (not including Time of Ages or World of Kulan, however), I’ve moved all my maps for the Moons of Almagra into a album on the group. There are maps for four of the seven moons in Almagraspace — “Burning Moon” (3rd), “Ice Moon” (6th), “Small Moon” (4th), and “Strange Moon” (2nd). While I don’t have true names for the moons of Almagra yet, the descriptive names give some idea of what each moo is all about.

I have decided that “Strange Moon” will use D&D v.3.5, so that I can use templates to twist the PC races into what I want them to be for the world. As well, “Burning Moon” likely will also use D&D v.3.5, so I can build the setting around the sourcebook Sandstorm. “ice Moon” will be a AD&D 2E sub-setting and will be tied into using the classic version of Spelljammer. I haven’t decided anything for “Small Moon” yet. I could go off the map and pick a non-D&D ruleset since the world is very small — OSRIC, maybe, or another OSR game.

The other moons don’t have maps, and I’m not sure I’ll need them for a while. I do know that “Death Moon” will use either AD&D 2E and/or D&D v.3.5 depending on how I tie the villainous inhabitants of the moon to the other moon settings. Almagra’s 7th moon will be designed as an classic AD&D 2E Spelljammer air world. The super-world’s 1st moon won’t be a setting. It is a lifeless moon that is important more for the societies and religions of Almagra and “Strange Moon.”
