Quick Note - Breaking the Silence

My apologizes to everyone for once more going silent. My daughter's birthday was last week and that means out of state family paying us a visit for a prolonged period. However, while I was unable to update the blog I was able to continue with my other projects thanks to the awesomeness that is the steno-pad!

"Temple in the Sea of Sand", my fantasy adventure that I posted hints of last month is nearly complete! I have to type up the whole thing and get the maps made, but nearly there! I am hoping for a mid-April release for it. Of course with the wife gone on a business trip next week I may be able to get some more done and get it out just a hair quicker.

I've also been working on a new class for Eira to work as a replacement for a rather broken raceless class that was nearly impossible to fix without making it something it was not. This class, the Pilgrim, promises to be a little more traditional than some of the Eira classes and may be a fresh of breath air for me as I struggle with my own setting.  *Sigh* If only I had the power of Greenwood.

Finally! Exciting news! I am working on a new two-page adventure for X-plorers entitled "The Miracle of Science". Why is this exciting? For a number of reasons, but mainly because the Adventure set-up for this one takes up the entire first column which means there is far more story this time around then in "The Nest".  I am hoping to have "The Miracle of Science" up by the end of next week ... and again being that my wife is away I may be able to playtest with more than a small group of 9-year-olds.

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.



I.
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.
