Quick Note - Return to the Grounds of Fantasy

With Pyramids of the Lost King moving along nicely and the existence of my now broken wrist I have turned my attention to one of the possible stretch goals for the Kickstarter.

Since my wrist is broken my ability to type has been greatly reduced because the angle my hand is stuck at in the not-a-cast I was given. So for the moment the more writing intensive stretch goals are on a side-burner and I'm working on learning how to do the more difficult (and also final stretch goal): VTT versions of the kickstarter adventure.

For this I've chosen the two largest platforms for online play Fantasy Grounds (also on Steam) and Roll20. I also plan to eventually create the adventure in Tabletop Connect after it is officially released and figure out if there is anyway to make it native in Hangouts.

So far I am enjoying the learning process, especially on Fantasy Grounds which has become the core focus of my education. For this education I am using a previous Patron Adventure "The Coming of the Night Train". Depending on how this goes the VTT version will be given away to my Patrons and placed up for sale as well to my non-Patrons to help fund Pyramid of the Lost King.

So, wish me luck in this learning process and if anyone has Fantasy Grounds and would like to help me test various builds please let me know!

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…

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.
