Quick Note - The Strongest Kid in the West

Yesterday my 2-year-old son broke his leg, a spiral fracture to the right tibia to be exact. This was on a kiddy slide at a playground outside of a trail head. My son never cried more than for 20 seconds after it happened and then demanded to be put in his backpack and taken on the hike. He wanted to see foxes and water falls.

We ended up in the ER for 4 hours he didn't cry until the end and that was because he as hungry. Never once did he cry out when the doctor examined him ... thankfully we had a good doctor who noticed the queasy look my son got when he touched his leg or we may not have even gotten an X-ray.

Last night the boy sat and watched his favorite (non-Star Wars) movie "Treasure Buddies" and only started getting annoyed when he realized he couldn't run to the kitchen to beg me for a drink. This morning his called me to his room in a very calm voice and said. "I still booboo, da." He frowned when he said it. "Kiss no work."

Well that's it from me on a proud but sad dad front! I take care of the boy today until his mom gets home from work and then I prepare for tonight's chromatic commando game! To my 2-page adventure players, I will be back in the flow tomorrow. Life upended the last two weeks and I had to take care of that.


  1. I have 4 boys, they've had their share of knocks, too - always amazes me what they put up with. Best wishes to your son.

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…

Genius Loci's Outlook for Feb/March 2016

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.

The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.

More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
