Networking

How to train your Network

You should see the shudders I get from people when I talk with them about building their network. They almost visceral fear or loathing of the idea is evident on their face, and immediately their eyes gloss over like Brandon Stark’s when he wargs. I can’t blame them, either. Most people approach networking as if

Village

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”

Prison Map

The Great Prison Escape

This is a Dungeons and Dragons/Roleplaying Game post. I loved the show Prison Break, and knowing that it’s going to be coming back to TV soon, it got me thinking about various different types of prison campaign scenarios. So I thought I would share them with the world, and let you figure out how to

A history of violence and concern

Serindar Brickback had a fairly generic past. He was born in a vale to two relatively poor parents who owned a farm. From a young age he was expected to help out; mending fences, milking their one decrepit cow, and reaping the wheat whenever harvest time came. Each year his father and mother earned just

May the Fourth be with you.

It is no secret that I love Star Wars. I’ve read a lot of the Expanded Universe novels, watched every movie countless times, (even the prequels) and was giddy as a school girl to watch Episode 7 in theaters. Star Wars has played a huge part in my life, and I just wanted to take

Drydak Mushrooms – D&D

The other day I was thinking about something to add to D&D and I came up with a type of Mushroom that grows native in dark, damp caves that are fed by a pocket of adamantine, or perhaps mithril. You can work it into your campaign however you want, but it helps if there’s either

A long and final life

I spend a lot of time thinking about death; probably an inordinate amount of time compared to others my age. As I get older, though, I feel like maybe I’m approaching the same amount of attention that others provide the concept; but maybe not. Maybe I am morbidly fascinated with the idea of dying and

In the garden of good and evil

I like Dungeons and Dragons. I really do, but I find that some of the people who play the game get too stuck on the rules to allow themselves the flexibility required to create a good story. In this case, a DM had a group of players who decided to make use of the ever-treacherous
