Quick Note - Joining the Game

Inspired as I was by +Shane Ward's entry to the One Page Dungeon contest I have decided to throw my hand into the game as well.

I'm working on it as we speak (a wonderful distraction from real-life woes) and I am going a little off base with this as I'm developing my "dungeon" and story for a game that I have never done anything previously for. My dungeon comprising of a very basic story and 13 areas is sci-fi themed. Originally I was planning on making it for "Edge of Space" since it is a system that I know and love. However, as the dungeon developed itself in my mind I realized that the small story doesn't fit my vision of the "Edge of Space" universe and while I'm sure +matt jackson would be all "That works!" with what I have planned, I just don't feel it is right.

So the dungeon will be using "X-Plorers" as its system/setting of choice and I think it will work well. I am enjoying the creature creation system for the system a lot (and we all know I am the monster man :) ) and I have finished the 5 creature types that will be appearing in the dungeon.

Wish me luck! This should be fun.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
