Hmm, I do not recall hobgoblins either. There have been a few goblins poking around, but that is about it.
Sean, thanks for stopping by. You are welcome anytime!
Hmm, I don’t recall remasking orcs and hobgoblins, at least intentionally. We are having fun with the setting, though we’re keeping it plot-light since we can only meet once every two weeks and many of the players don’t have the time/energy to follow a deep story. So it is very episodic, trying out different aspects of the Shaintar/SW rules or different flavors of the world inside the cauldron of the Wildlands.
Hmm, I thought I’d written up the “Temple of the Three” adventure I did and of which I’m most proud, but I don’t see it here. Another thing for the “to do” list. I tried to help our players learn more about the Ascended by visiting a monastery to three of them and engaging in battle to save a religious relic (little r).
So, yeah, wow! Imagine my (very pleasant) surprise to see someone running my world here on the Portal. Thanks for that excellent bit of coolness to my day.
I was curious about something as I was scrolling around, however – I note that you apparently have changed the name of orcs in your version to hobgoblins. Did I read that right?
If so, that’s perfectly cool – everyone should make the world their own. However, when you see the new Bestiary, it may come as a minor shock to discover that the term “hobgoblin” actually means something slightly different.
In this case, a Corrupted Orc becomes a Hobgoblin (as a Corrupted Goblin becomes a Trogladite and a Corrupted Ogre becomes a Troll…)
At any rate, keep it up! And thanks for the support!

grendlesparks – the reading was a simple 3 card draw – past, present, future, – using the major arcana cards only. You can google tarot card meanings for a nice summary for each card. This was mostly done on a web board prior to the actual session. I have done both “in person” and web board, and the web board approach is the best in my opinion (easier to set the stage and think about wording).
Other than a few inversions of the cards, I used exactly what was drawn. The cards had an eerie habit of coming up relevant to what was know about the character.
The main reason I did this little side adventure is I am about to start Expedition to Castle Ravenloft for another group. As you may know, tarot is a key aspect to that adventure. I was practicing getting ready :)
Hi grendlesparks! Thanks for the kudos. The campaign is a joint effort between three GMs and is set in the published Savage Worlds setting Shaintar. The Vistani was amerigoV’s adventure concept. I think we’re having fun making each adventure short and sweet, not relying on some big plot arc. We’re letting NPCs, places, and recurrent themes develop naturally. It’s also our first campaign using Savage Worlds system which makes game prep easier and perhaps leaves more time for creativity? Thanks again, Jim
What is your secret? Your Vistani tarot card entry and the subsequent character interactions are amazing. Remarkable. Beautiful. Did these all come out of your head or did you have some divine inspiration. I hope my praise doesn’t sound mocking. I love them.
I would love to know what you had to work with and how you developed such interesting readings. Please don’t tell me that this is from well-developed character backgrounds or an over-developed ability for story-telling. I’d like to hope that I can replicate this somehow.
Well done. I love what you are doing by the way.
