Lord of the Winter, Master of the Icy Pit, King of the Frozen Waste

Corvis is a member of the Concordat, and is worshipped in Cittá and places dominated by ice, snow or winter.  He appears as a tall gaunt man with pale blue skin, white hair and icy grey eyes.  His symbol is an icicle or a symmetric 6-pointed ice crystal.  He uses a large icicle as a weapon to stab with, or as a wand to cast ice-related spells.

Corvis is neutral.

Clerics of Corvis may wield clubs, maces, daggers, or throwing stars (modeled on snowflake designs they create) or anything they can fashion from ice. They may not wear metal armor. His clerics most often dress in pale blue, white, or grey and black.

They gain the following abilities:

  • At 5th level, his clerics Resist Cold as per the 1st level spell
  • At 9th level, his clerics Resist Fire as per the 2nd level spell

In addition, he grants them access to the following spells when they reach the appropriate level:

  • Ice Storm (from 4th level Mage list) as a 4th level spell
  • Cone of Cold (from 5th level Mage list) as a 5th level spell
  • Control Weather (from 6th level Mage list) as a 6th level spell

2015 Gaming Goals

I posted my 2014 Gaming Goals on 1 Jan 14.  As with my 2013 Gaming Goals, I didn't do so well, although I was a little better.  I didn't make my 26 sessions goal and I definitely failed in my blogging goal.  I started my OD&D Player's Guide, but didn't finish it OR print it for my players.  I didn't host any non-RPG game nights either, although we did play a horserace game as one of our non-game parties drew down to 8 people or so.  On the plus side, I created 5 player character sheets; one for each character class (warrior, mage, cleric, thief and adventurer) and included a bunch of class-specific information on the back of each.  I'll post them here in the near future, but each time we play, either I or one of my players points out another edit I've got to do.  Finally, I did manage to start a second group in my OD&D campaign world.  I'm now running both a teen group and an "adult" group.

So what are my goals for 2015?  Here they are:

  • Run at least 35 sessions between OD&D campaign and my Traveller campaign
  • Blog at least thrice weekly, on average, all year long 
  • Finish my OD&D Player's Guide and distribute to my players
  • Continue to invite new players to join my games, running additional session for subgroups as time allows
  • Host non-RPG game nights to try out some other games 

What are YOUR gaming goals for 2015?
