Re: Evernight 2?
It's my understanding, never having played, the Evernight starts as a typical fantasy world, elves, dwarves, wizards, etc., when bad buys invade.  So instead of your typical smiting of evil, you are running and hiding, and (presumably) eventually saving the world.

Re: Evernight 2?
Oggy has it right about Evernight.

About the long-awaited Evernight 2:
Originally, there were supposed to be three sequels, each dealing with one of the spikes (a spike being the "command center" of the bad guys, so to speak), each getting its own plot point campaign.

Then that idea was scrapped, instead wrapping the whole thing into one massive book. The characters of the original campaign would be important NPC, with optional rules on how to run EN2 if the players insist on continuing their old characters.

There are some inherent problems with continuing the storyline of EN1, IMHO, that's possibly why there hasn't been any real progress on it that I know of.

Re: Evernight 2?
What is a good race to add to Evernight? In my Evernight game I added scrullians from 50 Fathoms.

Maybe EN just needs to be rebooted, like every show and movie of our youth

Re: Evernight 2?
I would think that a race more oriented toward living underground.  Perhaps they are discovered/re-discovered after night falls.

Re: Evernight 2?
I added lizard men from the Dragon Isles - originally a "slave race" for the humans of the dragon isles.
Made for interesting conflict where first the lizards thought that the masters would free them... but then turned out to be even worse.

And I think someone added the Avians from the original rulebook to EN as well.

About a re-boot: Well, not necessarily. I think an Evernight-sequel with a Weird Wars angle would be interesting.
Think about it "Weird Wars: Evernight" has a nice ring to it, it'd contain rules for magic users in battles, there'd be colllaborators and resistance movements...

I have a brief outline of the whole thing on my harddrive but never submitted it to PEG. I know I don't have the time to write a full setting.

Those would be cool, but even if you went with a more established/familiar underground race: mind flayers, duergar (sp?), dark elves, etc.

I'm trying hard to not give myself spoilers, so I don't know how (or if) they work in the EN cosmology.

Re: Evernight 2?
In dnd?  quite a bit.

in SW?  up to you :)

dual-scimitar wielding rangers aside, dark elves were generally bad guys, not PCs.

If you want to mimic the DnD ones:
Darkvision instead of low-light.  They could use Obscure once per encounter.  Poisoned crossbows.

Re: Evernight 2?
Well Then I wouldn't add them to Evernight. Because everyone(even the Orcs) Hate the Sa Karaan invaders and want to put them down.

It's hard to rule the world when someone else is bossing it around.  ::shrug::

Re: Evernight 2?
I don't know much of the backstory, but the Dark Elves could be those who worship them in a twisted way.  Or just generically evil elves, gives the PCs the choice of allying with someone who usually is an enemy.  Although I suppose that's what they do with orcs.

Re: Evernight 2?
How would I do a dwarf preist of Terrax? Same deal as a sun preist but with earth trappings?

Re: Evernight 2?
Tweak the powers a bit; burrow for example could be added, and them something taken away

Re: Evernight 2?
Is there a reason only Humans can be Sunpriests and RedKnights? If not I'd like to make Gnasher converts following the Sol by becoming a sun priest.

Re: Evernight 2?
Only humans could following the sun.
Gnashers could be revere the sun, but not be priest or red knight.
The reason is only hinted, but it could be interpreted that the power of the
priest's is the same power that the MASTER's use.

Re: Evernight 2?
You are player, not GM?
At first reading I didnt really made the connection.
Its not really important for the plot arc.
So maybe your GM didnt like this way of interpretation and simply ignore it for a cool character concept.

Re: Evernight 2?
No I am the GM. In the beginning the Players gave a Gnasher a sun rod and taught him about SOL. So later that same gnasher came back with his tribe and rescued the players using Miracles. They then took the PCs to king's landing.
