Another New Idea – Hollow World

Ok, another one. That's a pretty bad title, and this is definitely going to be straying into the area of Mahasarpa and other old alternate settings for D&D. So I was thinking again about the idea of alternate Asian-inspired settings and thought of one inside a hollow world, with a sort of Monkey-esque feel to … Continue reading Another New Idea – Hollow World

New Idea – Twixt Flower and Thorn

OK, so here's another D&D idea I've got brewing - yes, there's always too many. I suppose this links up a bit with my Beyond the Pale idea, but whatever. So this game would centre around the Feywild, but be more about the creatures native to it, and the various different courts of the Seelie … Continue reading New Idea – Twixt Flower and Thorn

B is for: the Big One

Nobody predicted the Big One. One morning, shortly before 6am East Africa Time, what had generally been considered a low activity faultline near the East African Rift became suddenly, intensely active.

The fight was a … Continue reading Loge barely survives Limbo

And then I thought 'wouldn't it be interesting if the action … Continue reading The Other Guys

Come Hell or High Water – Bouyan II

So where were we? The Tielfing Cleric and the Gnome Fighter left the shops and headed to the pub, meeting up with the rest of the party. The Tabaxi Fighter was trying to cheat people at a game of Liar's Dice and failing, the Human Ranger and the Kobold Warlock were busy drinking, and then … Continue reading Come Hell or High Water – Bouyan II

A is for: the African Union

The African Union is a very different entity to what it once was many years ago. Like many international bureaucracies, it managed to survive long after many national governments fell and were replaced, or its members went to war or sued for peace. Working with the European Federation, the United Nations, and various NGOs and … Continue reading A is for: the African Union
