Creative Content Disclaimer

As I mentioned in the previous post, the Lands of Ara are a co-creation of mine and David Miller’s. He and I hashed out the Lands of Ara over many years of discussion and play-testing in the late 1980s and 1990s. I thus feel obliged to declare that unless noted otherwise and with very rare exception, everything you read in this blog about the Lands of Ara is the co-creation of me and Dave Miller, with the help of our many play-testers over the years but perhaps especially Scott Peoples. My publication of these materials in blog form here is intended to make a version of the Lands of Ara campaign setting available to old-school OD&D gamers (including myself), NOT to represent myself as the sole author of this material.

Note also that in the D.I.Y., fill-in-the-blanks spirit of OD&D, I am deliberately NOT offering an exhaustive account of the Lands of Ara; I will lightly skip from interesting feature to interesting feature as I please, presenting a series of more or less stand-alone topics that can be used in modular form or, taken as a whole, may hopefully be woven into some sort of interesting skeletal structure for your own game world(s). Everyone will have their own Ara. Enjoy!
