I know that I once said don’t write a blog when you are so tired you can’t think, but that is what I am doing right now. I want to write this one now because This Week in Gaming is coming and I start work again on Thursday.
Know as I write this blog about how you don’t need lore to have a fun game, I want to say that the problem with changing lore, is going to be those people that are really into will know when something is changed and they will call you out on it.
Settings like Greyhawk, Dragonlance, and Forgotten Realms have years and Years of lore, and that is really cool. I love Ravnica and its lore, but you don’t have to know any of it to have a fun game, and even if you know all of it, you can add to it and take away from it.
I try to use lore when working with my Ravnica adventures but I am 100% okay if someone wants to kill the Living Guildpact, or I might just take from the Twitch show that killed Jace and say he is dead now. But on the same hand, I don’t really use Greyhawk or Dragonlance because I don’t know the lore, so everything I did would be this is the lore now.
I know I just said that lore can change, so think about that before you get upset about the new Dragonlance books that are coming.
The Multiverse is going to change a lot of stuff. One question I have asked in a few discord servers is who would win in a war between the Red Wizards of Thay and The Scarlet Brotherhood? While if we get a new Greyhawk book we could find out. I mean the MtG Set Adventure in Forgotten Realms had a Planeswalker from Greyhawk.
Wonderland, as I work on this setting, I don’t have a lot of lore, because I want you to make it yours, there is going to be some and I hope people like it. But I just want to have fun in Wonderland and I don’t know what that looks like for you.
Alright my friends I like that is it for today, so until next time keep gaming.
