Now that there are pages up for each of the Canonical Superiors (except Vephar – I’ll add his once I’ve made a write-up for him), the next natural step is to do something similar for each of the Bands and Choirs.
When I started this blog I committed myself to not duplicating official source material from Steve Jackson Games. This is their IP, and even though they’ve left it to wither on the proverbial vine, I have no desire to do anything that might reduce their sales.
If I am going to create Band and Choir write ups, I need to do it in a way that will supplement rather than supplant the existing materials. Unfortunately for me, the Player’s Guides really are quite thorough.
They include a brief summary of each choir or band, a list of notable members, guidelines on naming, lists of common (and less common) duties, typical outlooks and attitudes, guidelines on picking out Words for Wordbound, and a small selection of custom or thematic discords.
The only pieces they really seem to be missing are the mechanics (found in the Core Rules and which I definitely will not post on this blog without explicit permission from SJ Games), and a complete list of NPCs (which is done quite well on the INcyclopedia).
So I’m asking for your help:
Aside from summarizing the places where specific bands and choirs are listed on Liber Neglecta (including the new NPCs from each group) – what sorts of resources would be useful to you?
How can I make Band and Choir pages worthwhile without duplicating paid content?
Thank you in advance, and I look forward to seeing your feedback!
