My Gorean scribe character has all but retired lately – I like to think, after months of work leading the caste and dealing with the minutiae of intra-caste politics, that he’s finally earned the time to pursue his own interests, wherever that leads him. While I’d intended to play him as an ethnographer (perhaps a bit of my real life interests peeking through), more often than not people simply write him down as a cartographer. After all, there weren’t – strictly speaking – any ethnographers in the books, even though some of the writing reads like some of the the
driest, most patently offensive ethnography already written.
No wait, that strike-out is redacted. It’s pretty heinously offensive. But I digress! My character’s usually assumed to be a cartographer, so I tend to roll with it. Unfortunately, as one who loves to put together houses in RP sims… I have, until now, found myself mostly out of luck in terms of cartography decor.
Cue Gorean Gacha. It’s not a secret that I’m not the biggest fan of gacha events – normally I’ll hit them up for one, maybe two particular machines. This one from Frogstar is easily one of my favorite, and for anyone who has – or intends to – design a medieval library, map room, or even a gorean cartographer’s office, the set should be considered pretty well mandatory.
Although I didn’t show it, the set here comes in two colors, a lighter wood (seen in the pictures here) and a darker/black set. The detail is fantastic on these, down to the delicate calipers and the aged scrolls rolled up in multiple pieces. My scribe here has largely traded in his fitted tunics and thigh-high boots for what I’d consider the equivalent of gorean casual – a simple pair of trousers, a loose blue shirt, and a worn, dingy pair of boots (probably the same ones he wears when he’s out clomping through the wilds or trekking toward faraway lands). Notably, the shirt here is another piece from PEQE (out now at We Love Roleplay), and it comes in five sizes and (if memory serves) even more colors, so it should be a good fit whether folks are RPing as high castes or low caste residents with a little coin to spare.
