Companions on the Road

Our journey to Shiro Kaotsuki was simple. Gami-Gami not a big talker, which is fine with Te’Ka! Old Mir’ Id’ Tus same-same. Talk, listen, don’t listen. He not care. Just talk-talk. About towns he knows and humans he has met. Bah! So Te’Ka’Mok of the Third Whisker is to being impressed? Hardly. In city, smelly, smelly city …

Props, Props, Props

We didn’t get to use all the amazing props that Sarah created for our last Serenity adventure. They looked amazing and I wanted to show off a few of them…. Close up of a dragon column The full temple I happened to have a few of our old friends to use as props inside the temple More odd alien-like creatures we would have encountered Aw crap, is …

Enemies of the Empire – A Review

The fine folks at Alderac Entertainment Group sent me a review copy of their newest L5R rpg book – Enemies of the Empire . It is a combination monster manual, history book and GM resource. And, somehow more than all of those things, too. As with the first book of the new 4th edition , it is beautiful. These people really know their …

[Meta] Insert Photo Montage Here

It has been a crazy few weeks for me and I am so far behind on Divas posts that we are going to have to resort to a tried ‘n true movie method to get ourselves out of this hole. Yep, photo montage. There have been some great props and some amazing gameplay and dang it! It needs to be…

We Ditch the Ice

We hadn’t gone but a block when Miss V just wilted like a plucked flower. “It is so hot! How do you stand it? I just….” She wobbled a little on her fancy shoes. The Doc was right there. “Brigid, when’s the last time you had any water? I’m afraid you are dehydrated.” The Doc turned to me. “Get Roark…

[Meta] Want Legos! Want Legos Now!

Legos. I had no idea how much fun I would have with them. I never played with Legos as a kid. We had Lincoln Logs. And an erector set, but I thought that was boring. I had friends with Legos and I played some at their houses but usually we played race cars or cops and robbers instead. It wasn’t until we started playing Serenity that the …

For the little geek in everyone: Legos for adults

This is a short and very cool TED talk.

Once More Into The Fray

When I shook off the memories of battle, I realized that there was talking going on. One of the new fellers had a top hat on and was acting like a big shot. He had these triplets fanned out behind him. They looked like they knew the business end of brass knuckles that’s for sure. My folk had moved off to the …

From Ice to Ice

After just a few days of loungin at the lake house on Osiris, I was all twitchy. I don’t hold with this relaxin life style. It’s just not right. I weren’t gonna say anything to no one about it. I didn’t want to be the possum in the soup, if you know what I mean. But

Scotch on Ice

While the group was in the kitchen, me and Roark arrived at the front door. I hitched up my skirts to climb the stairs. “You’re wearing your gorram boots!” Roark’s lips barely moved. “Well yeah. In case we gotta run. I’m ready. Got some ChemPlast too. Can’t be too careful when you’re rubbing elbows with

First Annual Diva Scavenger Hunt

My stint as GM ended early. I really thought I had at least one more session but you know how it is — sometimes the players choose the right path every time. I was stunned to have them finish the Gala quest line so soon. That meant that Angel needed a chance to read over

At the Baron’s Gala

That Frida, she had some good grub at the Noble Grape, but boy was she a mean one! Can’t say that she hires for niceness neither. There was this one old gal who kept yelling in my ear. I ain’t that deaf! But Frida, not much gets past her ear — even when she ain’t in

[meta] Game Master Me

We’ve been rotating out our Game Master duties. Between Angel and Michelle, they kept us rocking and rolling for two and a half years with Shackled City, so it was a great chance to learn a new system and give everyone a chance to be at the helm. With Legos as our mainstays for props, I
