The four soldiers quickly bundled up their tarpaulins and saddled their horses. Unlike the uniforms of regular soldiers, theirs had purple trim instead of red. They were not as heavily trained for combat duty as regular troops, but they were terribly motivated, and passionately loyal. It only took a few minutes for them to be … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 31

What else has this Dame starred in?
One of my favorite things to do is to cross over characters from our D&D games into the nerd fiction I write, and take some of those characters that I created in nerd fiction and cross them over into my D&D games. And rarely, I like to include some of the more memorable player characters … Continue reading What else has this Dame starred in?
One of the hallmarks of any D&D game that I have run, and most every story I have written, is that there seems to be an awful lot going on. It is never a straight-forward quest or simple endeavor. Players looking for a "let's go kill an ogre" style game are instead subjected to "let's … Continue reading It’s Complicated
A little Gnome goes a loooong ways
The chaotic and irresistibly festive land of Chute de l'Ombre has it's fair share of oddball people. Nothing less can be expected from a place so heavily populated by gnomes. But every so often a gnome sets themselves apart by virtue of their personality, reckless behavior, or a combination of both. Such is the case … Continue reading A little Gnome goes a loooong ways
The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 30
Jandle got out the deck of cards again, and the party spent the evening playing games. It was lighthearted, and no scores were kept, at least not officially. The primary topic of conversation was how difficult it was to get used to not being nocturnal any more. Targul and his friends still hated the daylight, … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 30
The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 29
Dawn discovered Brakoff cold, but the sky was clear. The only clouds to be seen were hovering around the peaks south of the city. Kreg had readied the sleighs, and the party had gathered for their next adventure. Trangdor was going along, just in case there were people to talk with, and notes to be … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 29
Maelonbourg; Under New Management
Events in Maelonbourg (original flag shown to the right) have created quite a stir in the western portion of the Wenigzustand. Colldrenia, the malicious and craven woman that usurped the power of the rightful king and ushered in an age of violent chaos had been killed by an intrepid band of adventurers. Her castle demolished … Continue reading Maelonbourg; Under New Management
The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 28
The orcs that had come down the mountain had all been allowed to watch the fight, and the outcome upset their world more than the death of their old chief. The women were split into two factions, those that thought any woman should be happy to have Targul as a husband, and those that were … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 28
Notable NPCs; Colonel Ulthar von Gheistler
Readers might recognize the description of Colonel Ulthar von Gheistler as fitting that curious band of powerful villains from the "Dragonlance" stories and the D&D gaming world of the same name, the fallen heroes known as "Death Knights." In many ways these fellows can be loosely described as being Darth Vader-ish in both appearance and mannerisms; … Continue reading Notable NPCs; Colonel Ulthar von Gheistler
All good edits must come to an end
Thanks to a deliciously calm and placid weekend, I was able to finish proof-reading books three and four in the Grundoon saga. I caught a few goofs that had slipped through in my original writing and even found a couple of continuity errors. But whenever I find these things I am reminded of a book … Continue reading All good edits must come to an end
