The Heart of the Matter – Winds of Change Session 9

Go here, get the audio. Seriously. You want to hear this one. I said it in my last update on this campaign , but it bears repeating: this is the best gaming session that I have ever GMed.

Cultist Hunting – Winds of Change Session 8

At the end of this hypertext link, you will find the audio to the session in question . Every time I look back on one of these sessions, I feel like saying “and here’s where things really take off.” It’s a bit of an odd feeling considering that I really like the way the campaign is developing. I guess I’m …

It’s Complicated

I usually don’t post on Mondays, but I saw a conversation on Twitter that has me a bit upset and I felt the need to write about it.

That said, here’s the link to that audio ! =) In this session, the party ventured back into Freeport to begin their search for the Cultists of Haagenti that had cursed the Hall of …

TAG! You’re it!

This is something that I’ve borrowed from the FATE system.  In that system, every scene has certain aspects that…
