A Family Meal
Every family will typically have a routine that is either daily or weekly wherein they gather together for dinner. This was certainly true in the von Slothjem household, which while it most definitively was not just any run-of-the-mill family nevertheless kept to its own traditions. One of those most closely treasured by the family was … Continue reading A Family Meal
A Seat at the Table
As busy as Bozageest was this time of year almost nothing would have surprised Gilla. She had set up a nifty little stall near to one of the major city squares in order to peddle her herbal remedies and small shamanic trinkets. This wasn't why she had chosen this particular location, however, despite it being … Continue reading A Seat at the Table
The Slothjemian spelljamming ship called the Shadowborn was a clean, fast, and dangerous vessel.

In recent years the Shadowborn was increasingly used to serve as a sort of … Continue reading RSV Shadowborn

What he was working at could only be … Continue reading Guess Who is Coming to Oktoberfest?

“My Dearest Duchess”
Dinner had been a fairly routine affair by Bortimer's standards, although anyone else would have marveled at how much food two people could devour. The youngest child of the Queen of Slothjemia, Bortimer would at first glance have a lot going for him. In reality he did not. He had only one close friend, his … Continue reading “My Dearest Duchess”
