New Beginnings

So, I've recently started a new job, a little over two hours down the road from where I was living. I've had to drop everything and move a chunk of stuff down, and that means I've also lost the roleplaying group I sort of started a few years ago back there. So now I have … Continue reading New Beginnings


Retiring Dima the Crow early

So this is kind of a sad one. I had to move for a job and decided to retire Dima. I didn't want to feel like I had to Skype every fortnight to join the game or for the DM to have to work out a way to shoehorn me in every time I could make … Continue reading Retiring Dima the Crow early

Factions in the Endless Sea

So I've been writing about this thing for a long time, but my opener has for years just looked like this: "The many atmosphere processing plants have mysteriously shut down, and without them, the air of Midgard is quickly becoming colder. In the past, the gods or their representatives would have arrived to repair the … Continue reading Ginnungagap – Expanded first adventure opening

Samsara part 2

Or does this count as part 3? Ok, here's the initial idea. Samsara is the city at the centre of the world, where people travel to so they can have one last conversation with their departed relatives before those relatives pass on to the next life, or where the dead awake to find they don't … Continue reading Samsara part 2
