Has anyone else read any of the Mithgar Novels by Dennis Mckiernan? I loved his take on Halflings. He called them Warrows. The ones that became adventurers tended to be the ones that trained their when lives to guard the borders of their lands from Wolves. So they were trained as expert Archers. Always liked that idea.

Yes. I hate halflings. Love warrows. Iron Tower had the best IMO

That’s right out of Tolkien. In the Shire, they had “Bounders” who patrolled their land’s boundaries (hence the name). Unlike other hobbits, they were not complacent and kept a constant vigil for threats from the outside. Wolves, goblins, bandits, and so on. They were one reason why the Shire was as peaceful as it was.

Sounds pretty similar to the Hockey Enforcer from the LL archetypes.

For Ayslish "Small Folks", oTorg had gnomes and kobolds(and Irish leprechauns).
Of course you can introduce new races as you want for Backer Archetype, but if existing races can fit the role, repurposing them can make things simpler.
(Maybe Warrows of the Mithgar can be more like fey or fairies in Aysle...)

Actually the idea came from there, and differenciated with "the playing fields of Eton" concept. He's(by default) a young British gentleman athlete, with emphasis on Dexterity and Mind rather than sheer Sterngth of the Enforcer.

So far I've been failing the late pledge for the Champion seat(and waiting for any situation update to see if any chance left), but how is the progress of you successful Champion and Royalty backers?
Are Backer Archtypes gone to the print? Or is there still any issue that some hands can help?

I have been communicating w Darrell. He likes my Archetype concept and Perk. I am currently putting together the art references for the artist. I have had problems w my computer lately.

This being my third one I have done, I can tell you that this is on pace with the others. It usually takes a 6-8 weeks of back and forth. He has 16 different backers to correspond with. They all have full time jobs. Invariably the artist needs to make at least one change along the way. Plus Darrell has 100 other things for Torg to do.

But I must say I love the process. :D

I had been just confused because Champion seats still vacant for Late-Pledge was something unprecedented and there seem to be nothing stating the deadline for them. Now I'm doomed but thanks for all the information anyway, and I wish you all the legendary Backers (and your computer) good luck.

Coming to the end of the process of my Backer Archetype creation w Darrell, I am really stoked to see what everyone else came up with.
