    effect (n) the result of an action

  2. Lesson's Learned

    First off let me say we are having a great showing of our regular players.
    Everyone is more or less on time and showing up, awesome.

    This week the players discovered some new dangers of dungeon delving. After
    much deliberation the players decided to take an easterly trek into the
    catacombs we left last week. This proved to be problematic when they
    discovered mystical runes drawn upon the floor. At first the Ranger and

    OK. So Ill be reading away and then boom, all of a sudden my eyes are moving along the page, but no longer processing anything.
