Jallupel Goodwind — MOTM #21

September's passed away, so we have another issue of Monster of the Month to share! This month's issue was primarily penned by Diana Probst, of Beer With Teeth infamy. Beer With Teeth is a collective of fellow creators for Chaosium's Jonstown Compendium, which makes some really amazing stuff. If Diana's name sounds familiar from around … Continue reading Jallupel Goodwind — MOTM #21

The Bad Winds — MOTM #20

Yet again a month has ended, and I've forgotten to talk about the new issue of Monster of the Month over here on the Akhelas blog! Let's correct that, shall we? For those not in the know, Monster of the Month (or MOTM) is a monthly supplement from Akhelas, which provides new creatures, adventure hooks, … Continue reading The Bad Winds — MOTM #20

Sylthi—Sessions Four & Five

It's been several months, but we've managed to get my nascent RuneQuest campaign playtesting material in Esrolia running once again! "Real"-life scheduling complications forced us to go on a hiatus, but hopefully lives have settled back down, and we can return to gaming consistently. This series of blog posts publicly records our campaign exploring ideas, … Continue reading Sylthi—Sessions Four & Five

Well, the month's just wrapped up, and that means we've released another issue of Monster of the Month!

MOTM Musings, and Recent Releases

It's been a few months! Back in March, I chose not to make a post here about that month's issue of my Monster of the Month (MOTM) series because I participated in April's Camp NaNoWriMo writing marathon. Working, appropriately, on future issues of MOTM. Taking time to post something meaningful here usually has the consequence … Continue reading MOTM Musings, and Recent Releases

Sylthi—Session Three

This weekend, we continued my RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha campaign exploring the city of Sylthi. Sylthi is a minor city in the matrifocal land of Esrolia. I’ve chosen to explore it because it homes the main temple of the Sword Sages of Lhankor Mhy, and I love the idea of ass-kicking kung fu sorcerers. I … Continue reading Sylthi—Session Three

Sylthi—Session Two

Yesterday, we had our second session of my RuneQuest game set in Sylthi. Sylthi is a minor city in the matrifocal land of Esrolia. I’ve chosen to explore it because it homes the main temple of the Sword Sages of Lhankor Mhy, and I love the idea of ass-kicking kung fu sorcerers. I also find … Continue reading Sylthi—Session Two

Asrelia Retires

My usual session of RuneQuest this week was cancelled, so I spent my time in Sylthi writing a myth instead. A collection of similar stories will be collected in one chapter, "Sylthelan Mythology," of the forthcoming City Guide. I'll probably post other tales as they get written. I really enjoyed writing this story. That's the … Continue reading Asrelia Retires
