Quick Notes - An observation on VTT gaming and another review!

Last night I had the distinct honor of being able to take part in a wonderful online gaming session run by +John Swan and put together by +peewee rota. It has been a long time since I've gamed with adults and even longer since I felt an personal connection to the people I was playing with online.

To anyone who has ever gamed with me online, please do not take that the wrong way. To the guys I gamed with last night ... also don't take that the wrong way. What I do mean is that this was the first time were both I and everyone else had webcams and audio. Being able to see the gamers and the Referee as well as hear everyone made a huge difference. The ability to see and interact with the other gamers through more than my keyboard was amazing and a truly gratifying experience.

I honestly cannot wait until I have another opportunity to be part of such a thing.

Now then, this morning I received an e-mail from Onebookshelf that "The Cartographer's Guide to the Creatures of Eira" had been reviewed. This marks Genius Loci Games third review. The first two were for "Two-Page Adventures - Under the Horn" and were an awesomely solid 4 out 5.

The review for The Cartographer's Guide, however, is an astounding 5 out of 5:

27 pages of fae-like (or related) creatures for your Old-School games.
There are some familiar names here (Korrigan, Slaugh, Ragman) but all neat takes on some classic monsters.

Use to use and read and can be dropped into any old-school game.

Can't wait to try some of these beasties out.

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…

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.
