Threads of Sanity #8

“Your masters are dead!” Sharim yelled with booming voice and Rhadec kicked the carcass of Alabus to the courtyard. “Leave or die!” and the drow didn’t had to command twice. They fled. Alabus was dead, but Jeiram had escaped. The dwarven fortress was once again regained, but there were still many questions to be answered.

Lords of Tarsa Review

The year is 1092 in the Age of Itania. King Girart of Mirensa, villified as the killer of children, schemes to bring the Nine Kingdoms under his crown while Safiro of Tivonna engages magi and spies to thwart Girart’s ambition. Mad King Bertrant of Ossirenza bears the burden to defend the lands of Men against

Threads of Sanity #7

“Come now lads…” Elbor prompted others. Old age and the lack of other hand did not slow him down or at least the old dwarf made efforts that it would not show. He was getting old and he felt it in his bones. There were things to be dealt with, and helping Sharim, Jonas and

Threads of Sanity #6

Our Forgotten Realms campaign continues again, switching back from 4th edition to 3.5. Dungeons and Dragons.

Threads of Sanity #3

Sorry for the late post. I’ve been really busy with lots of design work and the life itself seems suddenly be full of action. This was our third gaming session of Threads of Sanity campaign. You can see the previous posts through this link. Here is the session recap for the third session. Our heroes

Threads of Sanity #2

Our second Forgotten Realms campaign continued yesterday. It pace of gaming was clearly faster and there was barely need to review the rules. I have to admit that I wonder how easily players can surprise the DM with their resourcefulness and good rolls. Here is the session recap: Village Tameron, a small murky village at

Threads of Sanity – Forgotten Realms Campaign

It has been four months since I was able to sit down to play some pen & paper roleplaying games. Being father to a small child of course reduces my time to play much, but nevertheless, I was able to pull together a group of new gamers who are willing to join the dark si…

Borderlands Review
