One of the major themes I wanted to get across in Eldritch Shadows was that there was more to the world than the players knew (not the characters, the players). From the player perspective there are four magic using classes, the Priest, the Crusader, the Council Mage, and the Street Mage. Those are what are present to the players at the beginning of a game and logic then dictates that the world of the game follows suit. Not true, one of the threats in the Shadows are the "One-Trick Ponies", those magic-users who are weak as hell but have compensated for it by becoming really good at one thing.

One-Trick Ponies are too weak to be considered Council material, and don't have the same bag of tricks that a Street Mage would have. However, they make up for it quantity over quality. One such One-Trick Pony is the Summoner. Unlike a Council or Street Mage the Summoner cannot use any other spell except for Monster Summoning I spell. The difference is in duration, amount, and preference. The Summoner has an affinity for one supernatural creature on the Summon List and that creature will always be the one he summons. The Summoner also always receives the maximum  amount of the creature of his choice, and they stay in this plane of existence for 18 rounds.

Let's take Zeke up there, he's a rather gifted Summoner and has a special affinity for Dire Foxes (same stats as a Giant Rat in White Box). So ...

Zeke (Summoner) - AC 7 [12]; HD 2+2; Atk Weapon (Cane 1d4); THB +2; SV 17; MV 12; HDE/XP: 3/60; Special Summoner 3/day - Summon 6 Dire Foxes

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!

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 …
