Leaping in swinging swords and fervently hoping for the … Continue reading How Not to Fight a Dragon
Hilde wasn’t sure what she was looking for in a squire, but she knew what she didn’t want. She wasn’t looking for a man, and she wasn’t wild about having a kobold either. There weren’t as many female squires as male, but that helped her to narrow her focus significantly. Most squires could hold their … Continue reading Fight, Swear, Loathe; Chapter 2
One of the most hilarious and often overlooked aspects of any D&D game is what might be happening at the player's home base of operations while the adventurers are out looking for trouble.

They serve the … Continue reading Knights of the Domaine; Order of the Iris
As one might gather from the name, the second order of the Knights of the Domaine is largely occupied by clerics, paladins, and other similarly inclined nobles that seek to not only serve the King, but also devote a significant amount of time and energy supporting the Church and it's causes. There are also a … Continue reading Knights of the Domaine; Order of the Hammer

It took less than an hour for two dragonriders to show up, but it was another three hours before actual cavalry from the 2nd Army arrived from Brakoff. When the dragons showed up, Grundoon, Jandle, and Kreg were standing under the arch of the gatehouse, the only structure in which they could take any sort … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 40
