Not a King Stannis Challenge, but...


I'm thinking of running an Iron Heroes campaign, I want the setting to be pseudo-historic.

Generally pre-medieval, but I want to throw in Rome as it is collapsing in on itself, Moorish Empire in Spain, Vikings, Celtic myths (filtered through Slaine), Mongal Hordes and god knows what else.

All magic in the campaign comes from demons and thus even if used for good, has a serious cost. No PC spellcasters but items will be available, just equally as they are dangerous to the user as they are powerful.

IE: It's not an attempt to be authentic, just if it's cool chuck it in the pot.

Not decided on PC Races as yet, could be all Human, might allow a variation Giants from Arcana Unearthed, or as a wierd idea, let people take a feat that awakens a racial type in them, and then they can change from being human.

At the moment it's all very sketchy so I was wondering what other weird off the wall ideas other had come up with that might fit.

Edit: This should really be in Games Settings I suppose (still trying to get the hang of the forum structure).
