Posted up at my gaming journal, the Legend of Betrayal's Tear.

Always interested in thoughts on my writing, it is quite a short piece, so please take a look if you have time. Comments welcome here or there.

So, this month for the Sea of Stars RPG design journal I am doing monsters. Seemed like a good theme for October, yes? And I was challenged to make over goblins so they were not just sword fodder but something more fey.

So, here they are, what do you think?

Spectacular papercrafting from Wataru Itou, really quite amazing.

The British Library has partly opened its archive of 19th C newspapers to the public. Sadly, much of it requires a fee to access but still very cool.

Mostly been working on the Sea of Stars RPG Project, have several new posts up at the Design Journal and trying to get people to come by the Forums (hint hint).

More updates on the Sea of Stars page and at the Wordpress Journal. As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.

Been a bit lax about these of late. But there you go.

First off, a WordPress Blog for my Sea of Stars RPG Project. Since, I am told, a little self promotion never hurts.

The biggest hole in the world! The Mirny Diamond Mine these shots give a better impression of the scale. The Udachnaya Pipe is similar and Wikipedia Commons has some beautiful shots from inside.

Comrade Couture: Revisiting Communist Germany's Fashion Scene, a look at the underground fashion scene in East Germany.

Graffiti from Pompeii, people are people it seems.

Have links to the wiki and the forum up on the Sea of Stars RPG Project webpage.

Now I need some people to poke around and let me know what they want to see next. Any volunteers?

Sea of Stars RPG, I am in the process of organizing this into a proper resource site and community. Right now, it is just a holding page but I will let people know as it evolves.

Thoughts, comments and suggestions welcome.

I have decided to talk more about gaming on my LJ. Good idea? I hope so.

As some of you know, I do some freelance writing for the RPG industry. As things I have worked on get published in the future, I will be sure to have links to them. As soon as I have my comp copy that is . . . So I should have a new link soon, just waiting, you know?

As to ongoing games, most Wednesdays I get together with [livejournal.com profile] forvrin, [livejournal.com profile] wuxiadaddy, [livejournal.com profile] nemloen and [livejournal.com profile] coffeebadass for our Indie RPG night where we (mostly) play indie RPGs. Since we were down a player yesterday, we had a rousing game of Drowning and Falling, in which I lost three characters. Though, of late, we have mostly be playing [livejournal.com profile] forvrin's self made Pools System game set in the Avatar: the Last Air Bender universe which has been a blast. It has also been fun to watch the system evolve through playtest.

On Friday, I DM some D&D with [livejournal.com profile] kezia365 (aka my lovely wife), [livejournal.com profile] kawakaze and that guy [livejournal.com profile] forvrin. It is, of course, set in the Sea of Stars, my personal D&D campaign setting.

In our current story arc, the characters have been tasked by the God of Death, who is chained upon his throne in the shadowy land between life and death, to become his new heralds. As part of this quest, they must find the symbols of the previous heralds: a flute, a lantern, a set of scales and a a sickle. Death has given them a compass, made from a link of the chains that bind him, that will direct each of the characters to the item they are most closely associated with. Now they have set off to do so, searching for the scales first, traveling through the lands of the recently dead and the lost souls . . .
