World Building Post: City of Red Fern

This is made getting things done here quite the challenge, toContinue reading “World Building Post: City of Red Fern”

Late Post

So everything that has gone wrong has gone wrong, Dear Readers. Originally, I was planning on doing a How-To post on painting miniatures.

My Last Session I Got to Play

When we got toContinue reading “My Last Session I Got to Play”

How to Play: 7 Unique Clerics Inspired from History

Ah… the holy cleric… The support caster of support casters at the beck and call every wounded warrior. They are squeamish around blood, in chapel on a friday night, and rolling their eyes at every joke. And for most people, no matter how powerful the class is (and it is VERY powerful) that sounds… boring. Continue reading “How to Play: 7 Unique Clerics Inspired from History”

Another Session I Get to Play!

We begun our journey after a long rest, heading into the forest with the centaur. It wasn’t long before we came across a large open Glade, which looked ominous and foreboding with how dead all of the vegetation was. Thinking better of it, we attempted to discard it when our rogue thief notified us thatContinue reading “Another Session I Get to Play!”

Painting Update: Short One, Because It’s Humid!

The problem here is that it is so hot and humid outside that the AC can’t keep up with my sunroomContinue reading “Painting Update: Short One, Because It’s Humid!”
