    Hey Russ how you doing. I hope you don't mind me lurking in the shadows in Ravenloft. I am online only a little bit each week and for only an hour at a time.
    Talk to you soon Brother.

    Its good reading your writings again.

What are you looking for?:
I am looking for mature players who are dependable, preferably laid-back as opposed to loud and obnoxious, imaginative and yet realistic. We play a serious game (meaning I prefer to avoid the silly and ridiculous) but are very easy going with the simple objective of having a good time. I am an old school gamer and I like devising strategies, but I do not care for power-gamers or meta-gamers. I stick to the rules more or less, but I do not care for rules-lawyering over logic and common sense. In my campaigns, stories take precedence over rules.

I have a Ravenloft campaign, which I do for a few months every fall. We use the Pathfinder system with a few house rules though most of the adventures I run are converted from D&D 2e. The rest of the year we play a Greyhawk campaign of mine mostly using 2e modules. My campaigns are story driven and I am very particular about making sure everything makes sense in them, as there are always mysteries to be solved and one cannot be expected to put together the pieces of a puzzle if the pieces don't fit.
About Me
Biography:
I am an artist and have been a player and DM/GM of D&D and Pathfinderfor more than 25 years. Some of my players stuck with me for 20 years. Unfortunately things change over time and real life has a tendency to muddle things up. So players come and go. Over the past year or so I have managed to reform another group with steady players who are a great bunch of guys. We play once every other week year round on Saturdays. I have run and can run campaigns in Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, Ravenloft, Spelljammer, Kara-Tur, and Al-Qadem among others and have a very popular campaign of my own creation involving time-traveling immortals.

The Ravenloft Files Vol.12: The Shadow Walkers - The Keepers of the Vault Pt. III

by Arkhemedes on 07-03-2009 at 08:01 PM
(Continued from Day One)

After knocking on the door, we were eventually greeted by a man named Birch. In addition to being the caretaker of the lighthouse, he was a cleric of some goddess who's name I can't recall, but who I believe was popular among witches. At first he did not seem very eager to help us. That was until we described the nature of our arrival on the peninsula. Then he invited us in to stay for the night and gave us all something to eat. He also gave Midnight a place

Excerpt from the Journals of Vassago ApVay, Shadow Walker:

(Continued from Day One): Fortunately, the rest of us took out the three remaining ghouls without further difficulty. And the paralysis on Angus lasted for only a few minutes. But when he was able to move again, he kept talking about the ghouls and the helpless feeling of being paralyzed.

It seemed that Angus's troubles would continue to mount, as he now appeared to be obsessed with the thought of ghouls and their

by Arkhemedes on 06-12-2009 at 07:42 PM
Under the Baron's 'Turn the page' thread in the Gardens of Stone group, I posted the first part of the first week's review for my '04 12th Annual Running of Ravenloft. Here I will continue the story of what was one of my favorite Ravenloft groups. For convenience I will again introduce the members of the band:

Cast of Characters:

Angus Shadowborn - Human paladin from the Great Kingdom of Avonleigh closely related to Kateri and Alexi Shadowborn
