Monster of the Month

It's been a while, and just recently I realized I'd neglected to update the blog with the publication of my new series, Monster of the Month. Monster of the Month is a, well, monthly series of new bestiary entries for the tabletop roleplaying game RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. They're all available in the Jonstown Compendium, … Continue reading Monster of the Month

My gut reaction is to say "No, it hasn't been fruitful" but I don't think that's entirely accurate. Jiharel sat on the backburner through August, although it's still bouncing around in my mind, with a lot of the same challenges and wonderings as I … Continue reading End of August Update
