The Salt in Wounds Setting for 5th Edition and Pathfinder is Live on Kickstarter!

I started writing about the city of Salt in Wounds here on Tribality in early 2015, and now it’s live and funding on Kickstarter! In case you missed it, here’s a taste of what the evil fantasy mega-city fed by a bound Tarrasque is all about:


Upon approach to the city of Salt in Wounds, the first thing a traveler will note is the sounds of the Tarrasque –the unkillable, mountain sized monster that terrorized the world in the last age- screaming as it is butchered –again- to feed a hungry city. Its roars echo for dozens of leagues, and the ground occasionally trembles as it thrashes against the immoveable harpoons that hold it in place.

System Agnostic: The City of Salt in Wounds is Back – Bigger & Better!

Hey all you tribality peeps. If you regularly follow this (much neglected) column then you might know about my setting The City of Salt in Wounds that I was writing about regularly before taking a break. If you’re unfamiliar, Salt in Wounds is the economic powerhouse built around the perpetual butchery of the unkillable, regenerating tarrasque (fantasy godzilla). Well, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve launched Salt in Wounds as its own site, with custom art work (that’s still coming in) and I’ll be posting about it weekly.

Check out the Salt in Wounds Setting

I also set it up so there are distinct For Players and For GMs sections. If you are planning to run a game you can send your players a link so they can get a taste, learn some of the lore without having the deep dark secrets of the place spoiled like so much rotting monster meat. (Of course, they might peak anyway.)

Be sure to let me know what you think! And thanks for bearing with me as I got the site set up.

The 13 Meridian Houses

When the Tarrasque was first subdued, thirteen ‘immovable’ harpoons were sunk deep into it’s body, each with a long, thick chain running to a traditional iron anchor sunk magically into stones or later concrete. As the founders built the fortress SalzinWuun they appointed 13 guardians amongst their most popular and well considered number; each guardian was personally responsible for ensuring that the harpoon in their charge held fast and to make arrangements to deal with unforeseen changes.

In the last hundred years, the status of these guardians has changed. Their descendants are now referred to as Binder-Lords, each still responsible for ensuring that their harpoon remains… read more here!
