Has anyone here run/played in a game that hit the Vault Keeper's deepest layers in Orv? Has anyone learned Orvian as a language?
Did you discover/fight Intellect Devowers, Aboleths, and the other nightmares of the Vaults?
It seems a rahter unexplored area. (With the exception of the Black Desert getting fleshed out recently.)
See that's the catch Everyone sees the T-Rex vs Froghemoth pic...and then what? I'd really love to see the Golarion team flesh out Orv more. I mean..the Vault Keepers built mini WORLDS down there. Hollow Earth kinda stuff full of aberations, creatures from Leng, suggoths, etc. It's asking for some serious exploration.
Yeah, I'd like to see an entire Darklands AP at some point; really delving into the depths. Some more insights into what, precisely, the Black Blood is (on this and other worlds) and if it has ties to the Dominion of the Black.
Probably something that would involve the Vault Builders and the Vault Keepers. Given that, it could even extend beyond Golarion, to the Darklands of Tian Xia and even Apostae!
I had an adventure that took place in Orv at the giant underground sea, but I didn't flesh things out very much. Basically, the PCs were on the surface and got attacked by a kraken, ship got wrecked, they wake up underground imprisoned by a crazy aboleth cultist. They escape, find the only way out is to take a boat out over the sunless sea. I had a bunch of encounters planned, but the first one they ran into was a... damn. Not a marraenoloth, but the PF version. Thanadaemon. Anyway, he offered to ferry them back to the surface for some payment, and they took it (because players are dumb). But there was another part about a radioactive island inhabited by urdefhan that never got encountered.
