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

Weekly Update – 6/6/18

Hello, Internet! I'm going to try being brief this week, since I'm in the middle of working on a thing and want to get back to it. Being intentionally vague here (more on that below). Forward! Reading I've continued to chip away at Moby-Dick this past week. I'd say I'm somewhere between a third and halfway … Continue reading Weekly Update – 6/6/18
