Primer availability

Regarding the Auran Empire Primer that (I think) was released with the SSoS kickstarter, is there any way to buy it as a PDF or was it a backer exclusive? I'm going to be running the adventure next week and it would be handy to have on hand.

Is the primer ever going to offered as a pdf? I'd love to pick up a copy, have everything else y'all have put out so far :D I missed the KS for SSoS, but I did buy a pdf copy and it's awesome. I'm planning on using ACKs to run Birthright once we get back into fantasy (been playing Clement Sector with MongTrav for over a year now), but I'd really like to have an alternate setting that also is designed for both PC level play and domain level play. Plus, the Auran Empire sounds cool :D

Yes! The primer is going to be released in PDF. What has held it up is the map. But it's coming along beautifully and I expect to release it in September.

Out of curiousity, how do you intend to use ACKS to run Birthright? Are you talking about ACKSifying Cerilia? Seems like quite the undertaking. Does Cerilia actually have the sort of feudal hierarchy that ACKS seems to assume?

I've been working on the Primer! Very, very close...

Tirenean

The empire-building Tireneans can be found throughout Aurëpos, though their greatest concentration remains in and around the city of Aura. The Tireneans are a tall-statured people with athletic body builds characterized by broad shoulders and narrow waists. They have long oval-shaped faces with upright foreheads, prominent cheekbones, narrow jaws, and moderately full lips. Their noses are of moderate proportions, somewhat fleshy, with either straight or convex bridges. Tirenean eyes are deep-set and round, with coloration varying between blue-grey, grey, gray-brown, light brown, and dark brown. Their skin color is light brown, tanning to dark brown. Tirenean hair is straight or wavy, and colored dark blonde, ash brown, dark brown, or black. The men have moderate beard and body hair.

Tireneans are proudly traditional about names, and take care to give every child a carefully-chosen Classical Auran name (although as fluency with Classical’s complexities has slipped away, many provincial Tireneans now carry vulgarized or hybridized versions of the old names). Moreover, while elsewhere in Aurëpos only the upper classes have surnames, in Tirenea even commoners possess hereditary family names (e.g. “Syrena Drakon”). During the Auran League era it was often claimed that every Tirenean was descended from nobility, which may account for Tirenea’s name itself - “land of crowns”. Perhaps because commoners have two names, nobles often take a third name based on some characteristic or accomplishment (e.g. “Audarius Valerian Tarkaun”).

Male Names: Aurëus, Celictor, Destrio, Gundus, Omus, Quellus, Tavus, Valen, Zelicus

Female Names: Aurëlyn, Celena, Dalefa, Hyapsë, Istria, Nauriva, Riara, Syrena, Valanna, Zeodarë

Surnames: Amadorus, Drakon, Hyatavië, Ionicus, Mennicus, Nuvicerres, Süromus, Tarcalus, Valerian
