The Long Walk: Life on the Grand Stair – Sean’s Pick, 061317

Looks like we’ve got a particularly eclectic week underway, with this diceless game supplement grabbing my eye today. Fans of Erick Wujcik‘s Amber Diceless RPG got a huge treat when Rite Publishing brought the system back with Lords of Gossamer & Shadow. Now we get a full companion work to expand your game, at long last.

The Long Walk: Life on the Grand Stair
 
The Escalara, the Grand Stair, spans eternity. On its countless landings, Doors lead to Gossamer worlds of wonder and terror. Powerful beings explore its mysteries. Will you join them?
 
The Long Walk: Life on the Grand Stair is a companion volume to Lords of Gossamer & Shadow. Within its pages, you will find the following:
  • New powers like Scrying, expanded powers like Aetheric Projection, as well as Advanced and Exalted versions of existing powers found in Lords of Gossamer & Shadow;
  • A new system of partial powers to use for NPCs or character advancement, as well as rules to allow characters to have exotic natural abilities like wings or claws;
  • Rules to create and play lower level Agent characters who work for the Gossamer Lords;
  • New Gossamer worlds to explore like the mysterious Impossible Pyramid, as wellas a closer look at the Ascendancy, the empire of Bastiano;
  • A look at some of the people who populate the Grand Stair: travel with the Cicerones and porters, and hear tales from the praecones, or fight alongside Drake’s heroic Doormen and the far roaming mercenary corps, the Raven Legion;
  • An examination of the history and culture of the Gossamer Lords, including some new Lords and Ladies to add to your game, many created by our loyal supporters and fans; and
  • A detailed framework for a campaign, The Dwimmerlaik Inquest, which includes three adventures with guides to customizing them for use in your own campaigns.
The Door is open. The Grand Stair is before you. The Long Walk awaits. Will you begin the journey?
