I make no promises and no guarantees. A month in with this blog and I have yet to gain any readers, followers, or views (outside of my own). Well, I’m not spending much effort advertising and promoting, so it’s no real surprise. Anyway, on with the story… Spring Planting, Hunter’s Day 20, year of […]Read More Through a Cat’s Eyes – 1.2
I don’t know if I’ll keep up with this and follow through, but it’s an idea I want to try. In my D&D setting, there is an NPC character who will likely be an integral part of the overall adventure, even though the players are currently unaware of her importance. What I’d like to do […]Read More Through a Cat’s Eyes – 1.1
Three articles in one day? Absurd! Slow day at work. So far, I’ve had two tasks that each took less than 10 minutes and I attended a phone-in meeting that lasted about 15 minutes. Shh… Don’t tell the boss. The theme of three kind of segues into the focus of this article, the 3-Dragon Ante […]Read More 3-Dragon Ante?
We have a curse! Thousands of years ago, the wand was “created.” Now for me, I had to figure out what was going on and how it affected everyone. By this time (during the course of developing this setting history) the first D&D group had started. Characters were created, backstories were proposed, and the first […]Read More A Paradox of Desire
The title has nothing to do with this posting. A co-worker named George just happened to walk by as I was trying to think of a title for this. In actuality, this is a continuation of the last post. I had this concept of a great curse germinating in my brain. Something to do with […]Read More George?
Admittedly, I’m jumping around a bit. After establishing the 12 witches and doing some development with them, including creating character sheets and writing backstories, based on their songs, I felt there was something lacking. I’m going to jump-shift just a bit on an odd tangent. Several years ago I ran a Savage Worlds campaign with […]Read More The Great Curse
https://mainlynorfolk.info/steeleye.span/songs/thetwelvewitches.html Among other things, for there to be a setting, there must be characters. This particular song is nice because it gave me the framework for twelve NPCs upon which to build the world around. Twelve witches. Lived in the North. Some good, some not-so-good, some crazy, some, well… Each witch got a line or […]Read More There Were Twelve Witches Bold
Ever since my youth, I’ve been a fan of the electric folk band, Steeleye Span. My brother had collected a number of their early albums and I enjoyed listening to their music as much as he did. Both of us liked incorporating their songs into our RPG campaigns either as environment fluff or as the […]Read More It Started with The Heir of Linne
