    Boojums sound deadly. Like like the deathtopus.

    I for one, will not tolerate a boojum. I also have no idea what that is.

    I actually enjoyed that poem. By the guy who did Alice isn't it?

    I love your snarkiness. I hope to someday achieve that level of snark. (Serious compliment by the way, no sarcasm intended.)

    Hello there. I like what you've done with your page. I don't run into many customized ones. I grew up in Battle Creek, right next to Dearborn. Anyways, I wish you luck with your gaming.

    i was always impressed that ICE did much of the same with the MERP material (1st ed, anyway), placing a conversion chart to d20 in the opening pages of all of their releases. looking back over the last 8 years, it seems even more revolutionary that they did that now...

About Me
Real Name:
Garry Stahl
I am Garry, I live in Dearborn, MI with the world's greatest Wife, three cats and a ball python.

I am an aging SF fan with too much time on his hands. I'm a long time wargamer and role-player. I have played some form of D&D since 1976. I'm an old Grognard and take a certain pride in that fact. I didn't start playing in school, they had to invent it first. Besides, have you tried to carve a character sheet out in stone?

Other games I have played?
I have played so many different games I forget. I'm willing to try almost anything once, but limited time means the days of four times a week gaming are long gone. I am also a model builder, somewhat musician, writer, Father, Husband, general handy man and computer enthusiast. I use Linux (openSUSE) and spend way too much time on the Internet.


Garry AKA --Phoenix-- Rising above the Flames.
My favorite game console is a table and chairs.
The Olde Phoenix Inn

Once more into the breach...

by tesral on 10-18-2014 at 12:44 AM
Back again the intertubes have been boring.

I have not been idle gaming wise. My Saturday group has started a new campaign with a Norse feel. They are out to become the rulers of the north.

I have been working to get my long running game down in some coherent fashion. Two complete cities, Seahaven and Woodmanor two villages of importance Joy Island, and Malltranno, two more cities started Eyrie Keep and Hellsgate.

My ancient and crumbling world maps

To blog or not to blog?

by tesral on 02-19-2011 at 01:19 AM
With some of the profile features back I decided to give the blogs another look. I still see no way to edit the blogs once posted.

I don't have much to add right now. Gaming tomorrow. Last session got canceled due to people being sick or the weather being awful. I am jonesing for a game at this point.

Blog edited. Thank you Farcaster.

After Action, May 30th.

Ron -- Johnny male Elf, Toymaker
Sue M -- Sharpy female 1/2 Elf fighter
Tom -- Sy male mostly human psionic
Sue S -- Nelida female mostly Human cleric with a few tricks.

The session started with a bit of basking in the successful run to New City. It was decided to do some intelligence on the other gangs in the area, and see what it was going to take to absorb them. Discussed were:

The Wallmen, a gang pieced together out of two fighting groups.

Home Improvement 2: Revenge of the Tools

by tesral on 05-29-2009 at 05:11 PM
Long done short, we didn't get it finished. All the field work was done Monday but the trim is still being worked on. So the room is going back together slowly, and we have gaming tomorrow. (UGH!!)

Friday gaming is canceled this week due to three players being out sick. One I am worried about. The fellow has MD and can barely move. (He is in a power chair.) The flu is not a minor matter for him.

Well hopefully we will be back to normal next week with Friday gaming.

No gaming reports? Wonder why?

We are painting the bedroom and repairing the damaged plaster work this week. Sue is home form work. We started Monday, and have yet to touch paint.

Rip out the damaged plaster and remove the bottom window trim. Two slight nicks to the right hand. Par for the course in demo work. That went simply enough.

Big Issue, the window sill is split, warped and rotting. Must be replaced. Custom cut hunk of wood made by some long
