I started thinking of yet another D&D setting - this one is for my horror ideas, nominally. The idea was for Ostromarka to be the most distant, easterly outpost of the kingdom of Theudengard. Everything to the east, beyond Ostromark, is a blighted wasteland filled with demons and marauding orcs and probably a good few … Continue reading Ostromarka – yet more D&D

Only the most legendary Arcanists has ever been … Continue reading A is for: Arcanists
I've yet to actually sit down and play games on an International Tabletop Day. Usually I get pretty close, and play the day after, or at least the same week. My regular D&D game is tomorrow, and we're going to play for the first time in about three weeks, even though we're down a player … Continue reading International Tabletop Day!
