The Zetian Archangel Combat Vessel

The Zetian Empire of Eld is a mighty kingdom, ruled by an ironfisted belief in the One True God as found in their holiest of texts, the Zetathan. Zetia tolerates outsiders only so much as they are needed for their kingdom to thrive. Throughout their history, they have not been aggressive in extending their borders or in acquiring new converts. They preach to any who would listen and prefer to stay tightly within the borders of Zetia. They live out their lives peacefully by deploying a heavy deterrent that was until recently, entirely untested–the Archangel Combat Vessels. The might of...

Basilisk Lore Unlocked!

  We learned about Dragons this week, so I thought it would be appropriate to talk about Basilisks as well. Unchained Heroes and the universe we stage it in, has a unique approach to both of these creatures.

If you need a refresher on any of the lore of the Unchained Heroes universe that ties into the stories surrounding Dragons, you can check that out here under the Living World of Veerith and here under the Cosmology of...

A Light Week: Short Story Time

I’m on vacation this week, so I am a little light on the writing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share stories. Tell us about your Unchained Heroes or general RPG stories this week in the comments. I will start. We adventured in the Land of Eld this week, uncovered an ancient mansion that housed a dark entity. Facing dark being after dark being, we made it through the mansion to finally face the source of the disturbance. After a well fought battle, we defeated it; throwing around spirit spells, attacking it with undead minions, and hexing it into oblivion. A Necromancer...

Touring the Floating Realms, Part 2: The Mighty Voltanans

This is the second post in our series known as our Floating Realms Tour. The first post introduced some features of the Floating Realms, most notably the Floatstone and explored the continent of Angmaria. Today’s post is about the mighty Voltanans. The land where an Iron Sphere guards a Heart of Stone. Three Kingdoms vie for dominance of the land above and below its surface; while two of those Kingdoms compete to be the economic powerhouses of the world. The Three Kingdoms are known as the Consortium controlled by the Goblins, the Mithril Kingdom of the Dwarves, and the Kobish Dynasty of the...
