    Remember the following trick: the outcome of a simple contest can be turned into the first exchange of an extended contest.

    The Shadows of Yesterday (which was itself a love-letter to Hero Wars) used a model of all contests are simple, but if you don’t like the outcome you can ‘Bring Down the Pain’ and go extended. Only a player could Bring Down the Pain in TSOY not the GM

    I like this model as it allows players the ability to decide to go extended if a simple contest does not fit their mood, or produces an indecisive outcome, or if they lose and its important to them that they don’t

    As Jeff hints, the Telmori are central figures in The Coming Storm, as the Red Cow have the Telmori as neighbors. The story of Kostajor, Helkos and Goram is a central one that the players can become involved in.

    We include a section on the Telmori, including background on the wolf people as well as write ups for the key personalities. We explain ideas like ‘wearing your skin’ and the civilized Telmori of the Telmori Royal Guard.

    That is Goram Whitefang on the front cover of Sartar, Kingdom of Heroes, front row with his back to us. You can see that as a member of the Telmori Royal Guard he wears ‘civilized’ clothing and armor, and also ‘wears his skin’ using his Telmori magic.

    We also have material on the settlers of Wuflsand within The Coming Storm.

    Hi Gregory, I look forward to the feedback. Yes, Jarstaks’ Raid seemed to be a bad starting point – it just needed too much information. The Horror in the Dark would be an alternative, but the missing is one of my favourites for getting folks around the clan so far. I’ll probably write a new con game for Gen Con next year, and those two will certainly influence any intro scenario I write.
