Along the way to the capital of Fanolania the Viceroy conducted a number of tests to see how well prepared the people of this land were for magical attacks.

The Gopher King: Chapter 19
The Viceroy flitted around the town all night long waiting for the people he was spying upon to arise and resume their journey.

As it turned out he … Continue reading The Gopher King: Chapter 19
If you didn’t like her as a two-bit supporting role, You’re going to Hate her as a guest star
Recently I had occasion to experience quite a lot of feedback on one of the Non-Player Characters in my game. This feedback took the form of an all-day marathon of Facebook Messenger missives sent by virtually every member of the party in which they discussed the relative ethics of impaling (both as a deterrent to … Continue reading If you didn’t like her as a two-bit supporting role, You’re going to Hate her as a guest star
The Gopher King: Chapter 18
Malindra awoke from her sleep with a sudden awareness that she didn’t know for certain where those bedeviling adventurers were. She hadn’t any easy way to locate them either unless one of the humans in the group was asleep. The uncertainty put the night hag almost instantly into a foul mood.

The Tale of Betapsi
My host was by every measure a nobleman, both in title and in deportment. He appreciated fine wine, such as he served at dinner, and enjoyed a well-read and intelligent guest, which is precisely how I fancied myself. But for all of my hosts myriad accomplishments it was his curious hobby that had brought us … Continue reading The Tale of Betapsi
New Editor, eh? Get Bent!

The Second Battle of Käsestadt: The Greatest Bloodbath in a Generation
There is no denying that the Fallen Knights of Lotharingia had their collective asses handed to them when they attempted to bully their way into Limbourg to punish the Archduke of Maelonbourg and the Wenigzustand for meddling in this long-abused and neglected realm. Close to thirty-thousand soldiers representing all four of the Lodges marched into … Continue reading The Second Battle of Käsestadt: The Greatest Bloodbath in a Generation
The Gopher King: Chapter 17
Malindra wasted no time upon returning to her so-called home in finding Jorwan and in her most demanding tone said, “Bring me the laziest scullery maid in the entire hobgoblin brood. Now.” The Viceroy retreated up to his tower room to focus on his own schemes for the time being while the night hag went … Continue reading The Gopher King: Chapter 17
The Battle Draws Nigh
As the Lotharingians begin their anticipated military push into Limbourg the motley assortment of professional mercenaries, conscripted citizen militia, and foreign allied soldiers are taking their last measures to provide an adequate defense. Anyone familiar with Slothjemian military convention knows that this means a final pre-battle speech from the senior officer. In this instance … Continue reading The Battle Draws Nigh
The Big Sesh
Dungeons & Dragons is ideally the kind of activity where all participants are present for every session. Unfortunately the game does not always attract the kind of people that can reliably be counted upon to show up for every game. A lot of us nerds have regular lives and activities that we have to fake … Continue reading The Big Sesh
