Came across these The Witch Coven of Garlghast & the Egregore set by Privateer Press (34035) in a random
Google image search they make excellent substitutes for the witches of Egg of Coot.
So for the last two weeks I've been messaging my players with both the Cha'alt rule book & the Godbound rpg. After encountering the scout army in last week's game & dealing with the dragon king. I'm pulling in far more old school & OSR material within my campaign world's version of Arizona. The problem has been where & which OSR books I'm using. The Cha'alt campaign megadungeon is a major player within my game tonight.
I'm also using DA2: "Temple of the Frog" (1987), by Dave Arneson and David J. Ritchie. This points up the foreshadowing presence of Stephen The Rock . And his expanded role in the down fall of this Earth coming up.
That is if the players don't figure out the ins & outs of the dread tome that they may run across if certain adventure criteria are met. Meanwhile I've been quietly working on converting over certain humanoid forces of Chaos to Adventurer,Conqueror,King's Axioms Compendium 1-8 article Issue #2 - Beastmen. The savage swords of chaos, are unleashed. Then these are put through some of the random tables of Cha'alt to give the forces the right sort of Egg of Coot chaos feel to em.
There are a number of minor dungeons & ruins that I've peppered through Arizona that I've really had to do a bit of reaching to populate. Fortunately before I was able to meet with some of my OSR & old school illuminaties in the local area. One of whom reminded me of the fact that I own a copy of Dragon Lords Monster Manuscripts which is sort of an anti Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual. There are lots of weird & wonderful monsters that I can give the Cha'alt treatment too.
Then there's an old Immortal foe of my players from way back in the 90's from my Nexus The Infinite City campaign whom I've dusted off & given a Godbound fresh coat of paint. He's a vile villain with a copy of the Necronomicon Roman edition & a very nasty agenda of his own. Tdnarbmer The Scribe & Scholar is an occult adviser to kings & queens whose working his way in the court of Rex Harenae Crawler In Toxix (King Sand Crawler The Toxic). He was made using the guidelines found within Adventurer,Conqueror,King rpg's ACK's The Heroic Fantasy Handbook.
Tdnarbmer The Scribe & Scholar is based on Rembrandt - A Scholar Seated at a Desk
Tdnarbmer The Scribe & Scholar is an NPC villain of higher caliber then the players are used to dealing with. He's the sort of a wizard who can & will position player's PC's in ways they they don't see coming. Tdnarbmer is also watching the Hyperborean mercenaries that serve the city state & perhaps positioning himself to make the planar jump over to Blackmoor. He's been studying the clock work cybernetics of the Egg of Coot now for some time but has yet to come under the influence of the Egg or its machinations.
The question is will the party of adventurers or is there something else watching in the wings from Cha'alt itself?!
