  1. chapter two: cloak and blindfold....

    On the Morn of Fireday, 5th Month of the Year of the Emberhound. I so value Pik's wisdom. In his blunt and abrasive way, he asks questions that, quite frankly, would not occur to me until much too late. We now prepare to embark on our journey with Nadem, to meet with his friends. We, I, have high hopes for this venture. Pik is grumbling as usual about having to cover himself from the prejudiced eyes of the common townsfolk. I remind him that I have to cover myself just as thoroughly, or suffer severe ...

  2. chapter one: an unexpected beginning....

    On the Morn of Moonday, 5th Month of the Year of the Emberhound. This morning we unexpectedly are found by Nadem. We spent the night in the town of Enrobek, and I was persuading the innkeeper about taking food up to our room to break our fast, when I was called by a familiar voice. Most unexpected. Nadem has the most uncanny knack of turning up at unusual, if needed times. And more, he was actually looking for us! It seems we will not have to go hire-hunting after all. Nadem has already a venture ...

    affect (n) a mood or feeling
    effect (n) the result of an action

    The stirring music had a profound affect/effect on me. (Because we are talking about an emotional response, affect is acceptable, and because the mood followed the music, effect would work also.)
    This medication has serious side effects. "cause and effect"
    An "area of effect ...

  4. 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
    Warlock wanted to throw poor little ...

  5. English for RPGs Ė Part 01

    OK. This is the first set of words that Iíve accumulated. Iíll be ignoring definitions that donít seem relevant to the confusion. Iím also going to try to weed out the ones that have come to be accepted, even if I donít like the way that they look. (To me, you ferment beer, and you foment rebellion, but you can apparently ferment rebellion too. It still looks ugly to me, and ferment doesnít convey to me the same sense of passionate fervor as foment.)
