One of the fun aspects of this particular blog hosting site is that you can see how many people have been viewing your page, what particular sections they are reading, and, most impressive of all to somebody that probably isn't ever going to travel any more extensively than they already have, a glimpse into what … Continue reading What is the Deal with Chapter 5?
Belynda was thrilled to find almost everything she needed in Brakoff to fill her reagent bag. Trangdor served as her guide, and the two of them had a surprisingly good time. They also visited the only book seller in the city, and she found a couple of tomes that caught her eye. She made a … Continue reading Fight, Swear, Loathe; Chapter 10
After dinner, Hilde made a fire in the great room’s fireplace while Trangdor cleared away the remains of the meal. When both had finished, they gathered with Belynda in front of the fire, each finding a seat to allow them to soak in the warmth from the hearth, as well as to see clearly each … Continue reading Fight, Swear, Loathe; Chapter 9

As my longsuffering workmates will doubtlessly confirm to their immense and growing delight, I am on vacation this week. And since I don't have to plan a game for the foreseeable future that frees up considerable time to work on book five in the problematically titled "Grundoon Series." Sadly it should also be noted that … Continue reading Tis the Season… to Write!
Over the next two weeks, Hilde went in to the 10th Army headquarters exactly twice to stay caught up on her paperwork. It took longer each time than it should have, because Hilde was not a fast writer nor a particularly speedy reader. She had not inherited her father’s love of calligraphy, and nobody in … Continue reading Fight, Swear, Loathe; Chapter 7
Last night's game wasn't a long session but it was certainly an active one. No fewer than three brand-new non-player characters were introduced to the group and the band of merry misadventurers finally made it "home" to the castle of their old friend the Marquis of Chute de l'Ombre. But there are two delightful details … Continue reading Keep an Eye on the New Kid
