  • More lore than your heroic eyes can possibly journey through!

    Simutronics designers Steph Shaver and Mike Doscher introduce us to a couple player races in "Hero's Journey" and to the inspiration behind an enemy clan's architecture. Lore makes my head hurt faster than opera night at a karaoke bar, but it's nice to see the kids enjoying themselves!

    The Stoneborn include the stoic Burians, who excel as miners, metalworkers and brewers, and the Qwi, who are master tinkerers and builders. The combination has yielded many technological advances. Among the Ilvari, the ethereal Mistfolk are dedicated to magic and its secrets, while the Earthfolk focus on nature. The feline Suwari were once the former's pets. They too follow dual beliefs, the fastidious Domesticates being city dwellers whereas the Ferals embrace the wilderness. The original Old Blood Humans are stalwart and sturdy, while the Togs, who are easily distinguished by their greenish skin, are usually slightly taller and even bulkier.

  • Do all heroes have journeys?.

    "An introduction to the massive, immensely powerful Targust, one of the creatures we'll see in Simutronics' endeavor"

  • Let me tell you the story of a man named Xandeluth, a poor mountaineer couldn't keep the Suwari fed...
    RPGVault has a preview of Hero's Journey posted. A Suwari, not to be confused with a Swahili once might have said something like this:

    "When I began conceptualizing a look for the Suwari, I had in mind the quintessential rogue - a race that could be sly and lithe as easily as it could be nonchalant, haughty, or even a little exotic. It seemed almost natural, then, to draw inspiration from the feline mien in crafting these characters.



    Having an admiration for the athletic ability inherent to the feline family, and having found much enjoyment in watching the seemingly effortless acrobatic feats performed by my own cats, I opted to design the Suwari with the leaner, more agile frames of the genus Felis cats rather than with the large-boned muscular bulk of the genus Panthera "big cats." As a result, the Suwari are somewhat diminutive in comparison to some of the other races in Hero's Journey, but when animated, this design allows for a sort of fluid strength, a natural spryness, and grace of movement. These aren't intimidating towers of muscle, but fleet-footed gymnasts."
