Re: Strange that nobody talk about FS February diary

I think it's not helping how quiet this forum is. But I'm extremely actively talking about it on the FS Group and on RPGnet. I mean, I check it every day. But a lot seem to only go every week, and there's what? 5 of us active on it. :( Needless to say, it is not looking like a popular design decisio...

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

Absolutely on the economic impact of planets - functionally, most of the houses have One, and only one, world that really should matter - with the remaining 3-4 worlds all being backwaters. And even then, there's little parity I mean, look at house al-Malik. Criticorum's population alone outnumbers ...

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

Very much the case, for that matter there are probably quite a few knights who have land for whatever reason. In fact as an extreme example one Questing Knight in one of the books mentions having a keep on Tethys that Alexius granted him, so you have a knight who holds land directly for the Emperor...

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

One other thing to remember. A Baron doesn't necessarily owe fealty to anyone but the House Prince. And a Duke might not have any Marquis/Earl titles under them. Or even necessarily any Baronies. In fact, inconsistencies or not, I'd say that tends to be more the norm for the setting rather than a ni...

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

Interesting stuff I've seen elsewhere, not Fading Suns specific, but Real World Nobility. I think the key to the noble populations comes down to what a noble is. Is a noble someone who has land? A-La English nobility. Or something you never lose? No matter how many generations separated from a title...

Re: Towns Crier's - Guild Novemeber 2017

I see it far more cynically. Hawkwoods? Gonna be pissed. This could well be seen as a great betrayal by their native son, allying with the enemy they've been pushing for a Crusade against for 2 decades. Hazat - They're probably ecastatic, as this potentially means a crusade against the Kurgans is fa...

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

I definitely think the thing that would help most in a hypothetical "Noble" sourcebook? Some indication of when does a person with Noble Blood become Gentry, and when does Gentry in turn slide down to Commoner? I mean, we know it's mostly a Primogeniture Agnatic/Cognatic society. No indica...

Re: Towns Crier's - Guild Novemeber 2017

Was she? I don't really remember all the town criers, to be fair. Heck, I'd forgotten about her it'd been so long! So even if so, I probably glazed over it because I'd have forgotten the reference...

Plus, is the Redbrick stuff even being kept canon?

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

I think a couple others have been wiped out. The Chauki off the top of my head (until recently when a lost world was discovered with some left! But said world was lost before the Hazat purge of the Chauki, so the house was functionally wiped out so far as anyone in the main jumpweb knew). But my poi...

Re: Towns Crier's - Guild Novemeber 2017

Just noticed a possible heir hint from the earliest days of the setting when I just happened to decide to take a gander at Sinners & Saints last night (A book I've owned, but rarely looked at since NPC and Adventure books aren't really my thing... I just bought everything Fading Suns because I l...
