In the northwestern corner of the Temple Ward, bordering against the Wall of Revered Ancestors, sits one of the most mysterious structures in the Great City, a monstrous dome of pure mica-schist isinglass known as the Temple of the Silver Lady.

The Temple of the Silver Lady is the epicenter of the Great City’s oldest and possibly least understood religion. The original temple predates the other structures of the Temple district by at least a century, and may even predate the city itself. The earliest record of the religion describes a sacred meadow marked by eight menhirs centered around a huge geode which reflected moonlight so brightly that it appeared the night stars had fallen from the sky to dance amongst the mortal worshippers.

Later records describe the addition of a small marble temple and a life-sized stone effigy of the Silver Lady. At about this same time, a renaissance of industry and commerce gave rise to the sectioning of the Great City, forcing many other religions to relocate near the Temple of the Silver lady, creating the foundation for the Temple district, as well as dozens of other districts around the country...

Welcome to 0one's Blueprints Backdrops!

This new set of products is based on 0one Games' popular 0one's Blueprints. In 0one's Blueprints Backdrops, you will find a fully developed version of one of the locations from the Blueprints line. The Backdrop features a complete description of the location, and its NPCs and monsters (if any), penned by one of our talented writers, and portrayed by skillful artists. You also get a simpler version of the map found in Blueprints and a complete detailed 3D map of the location. The 3D view will help you to visualize the area and better describe it to your players. You can even show it to them, if you wish.

The product is suitable for use with any fantasy RPG system. We have separated the d20 stats from the main text, allowing you to print out either a generic description or a fully d20-statted version. But the good stuff is just beginning.

This product takes full advantage of PDF technology, joining old-fashioned style with the most advanced electronic features. Using the exclusive "Rule the Dungeon" feature (look for a big blue and white button–don’t worry, it won’t print) you will be able to fully customize this product. For example, the 3D map can be changed to show only one floor, with or without walls, with or without furniture, or only an external view, and on and on, with many possible combinations!

This product has also been designed to help busy referees prepare adventures—or even single encounters. Instead of spending extra time scaling the encounters to your party, the d20 stats are scaled in three different versions, suitable for low, middle, and high levels of play, using a "Rule the Dungeon" button. This button lets you choose which level to play, changing all relevant text accordingly: monsters will scale, DCs and traps will change, and behaviors of the villains will change, all according to the level of play you choose.

NOTE: you must use Adobe Acrobat 6+ in order to use all the features of this product.

An RPG Resource Review


The Temple is to be found in the Great City in the Temple Ward (although of course you can put it anywhere else that suits). In this product, you get a fully-detailed plan of the Temple including the NPCs to be found there and ideas for things that might be going on. The plans, of course, take advantage of 0one Games's mastery of PDF technology; you can configure them to your heart's content to make player and DM maps and there is even a three-dimensional view to enable you - and the players if you want to show them - how the whole thing hangs together.

But it's not just a location... there's plenty of background information to enable the religion of the Silver Lady to come to life in your campaign world. There are even rumours which characters can gather if they are curious about the Temple or the faith practised there. The first trick is to get in: there are no obvious entrances into the shiny dome that is the outer face of the Temple.

As well as all the detail about the various people to be found in the Temple - and they are a well-crafted bunch who you can imagine getting on with worship and the rest of their lives whether or not there are any player-characters around to see them - there is material on the faith itself and the specific clerical powers it confers. There's also a prestige class, Moon Warrior or Warrior of the Silver Lady, for religiously-inclined fighters who wish to dedicate their lives to service of the Silver Lady without laying down their arms.

Overall, it is well thought out and provides a slight air of mystery for low-level characters to investigate while avoiding the usual cliches of evil temples to destroy or corrupt priests to unmask.
