Background: The first part of Snows of Summer takes place on Earth: Forest of Dean, England 1941. All pcs are evacuated kids between 10 and 14. Soulbound Doll is one of their schoolmates. It is evident that the gate is to expand into Earth.
Characters are human...apparently and intially. Will probably apply one wookie rule.
Initally, everyone has access to improvised weapons, clubs etc and no magic. When they meet the rider he will provide standard equitment, familars, spell books, etc. Once in Irrisen characters will intuitively know how to swing a sword, cast a spell, etc. Combats will be simularly adjusted to account for weaker characters.
Players will pick class destined for at start of campaign even though they will initially be npc classes.
Ancestors will show up in Rastputin Must Die.
What I'm looking for:
Suggestions for sources, ww2 era equitment, british slang, etc.
Tie inns etc and anything else that might be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
