Lazy Lion

My friends don’t need me anymore.

New York was an interesting experience for me. It made me realize everything that I could do on my own, and also just how much I loved my friends and Family. The decision to move back to Missouri and search for a job while here was easy to make – and I haven’t had cause


How to Build your world – Part One

A lot of DM’s struggle with world building, and I don’t blame’em. It ain’t easy trying to keep track of some of these things: NPCs Town Names Monster Locations Politics Kingdoms Days/Nights/Moons History Religions Magic It’s enough to give anyone a headache. Factor in that your players are probably only going to explore 1/10th of

A lot has happened

In June I drove back to Missouri for a week. I was officiating my best friend’s wedding, picking up my mother and Girlfriend, and in general just trying to reconnect with people I used to see daily. It left me very homesick. When I got back to New York, it didn’t take long before I

Most people approach networking as if


A small town lives

So, I saw a thing asking about how to bring a small village to life. I’m going to assume this is a village near a forest, but with some arable land nearby. With that in mind, here are a few things a village needs to have in order to survive: Food Waste Disposal Water Relaxation/Recreation


A history of violence and concern – pt 2

The day that Serindar’s luck ran out was a gorgeous summer day. He’d formed a band of misfit mercenaries; like him they wanted nothing more than to live their lives. They’d become almost like a second family to him, only he would’ve betrayed any of them for a gold coin. Never again would he allow “family”
