  1. Background Info

    After reading lots of threads and several different boards about how to establish a campaign world (or just a campaign!), I thought I'd wax poetic here about my methodologies that have developed over the years.

    I went on forever about how I do the big background stuff in my first entry, so here's more of a nitty-gritty view.

    My world works... that's as clear as I can get to it. There are kingdoms that are foundering and failing, to either just disappear or be subsumed ...

  2. Terran's Journal - Further from the problem

    As I feared we were not far enough out. We were found by a patrol. We took care of them rather easily, but in our state of exhaustion it could have been bad pretty quickly. We took the unconscious leader of this group too as we decided to go back to the ant hive to find a place to finish our rest. Now we are probably about two hours from our previous spot of maximum advancement within the kenku lair. And that much further from finding Leo. We do have two kenku who hopefully can provide us ...

  3. Terran's Journal - Closer to the problem

    So much happened today, and we definitely have some trouble. I just hope we have time to sort it all out.

    I will start at the beginning though. During our rest, Xamra and Tulanthris heard some kenku passing by that were unaware of our "campsite".

It rerouted us by, I'm sure, several workers ...

    Back off.

    Sometimes I want to say that to people. They say "Man, how can you play (edition X) of that game? Everyone knows (edition Y) is so much better!

    RPGs have been around a long time now. From their humble beginnings of a couple of guys that published what was basically a pamphlet for which they could come up with no better name than "Chainmail" to the most recent 4th Edition game using online assisting programs, miniatures, landscape, spreadsheets, ...

  5. "Gamer Chicks" - Take Two!

    Someone who commented on my last entry the typical stereotypical role-player: acne-ridden teenager, maintaining the opinion that as a "gamer chick" I was seen as something gamers are not. It would be seen as me "getting in bed with those who are the stereotype."

    Is it justified that gamers have to be acne-ridden teenagers or middle-aged men who still live in their mother's basements and play WoW or D&D all day? Why can't a somewhat successful woman or girl ...
