Blurb for the New Readers

I've had a recent spike in viewers thanks to Dyson over at A character for every game linking to my Dyson's Delve adventure logs.  As a result, I'd thought I'd give a quick rundown on the campaigns chronicled here.

Active Campaigns:
Southern Reaches
This is a sandbox fantasy game based on the West Marches campaign style.  I am the DM for this game and it has run 29 sessions at mostly one game a week, played on Friday evenings.  We are using the Pathfinder RPG, but I'm applying a lot of old school ideas to the campaign.  I've been very happy with the results.

Dyson's Delve
This is a basic dungeon crawl using Dyson's Delve.  This is a training game for a brand new DM and most of the players started playing tabletop RPGs in this campaign or the previous one, Verden (see below).  I like the game and the dungeon, but I'm still trying to feel out my character, Harkaitz of the Red Soul.  This game runs Wednesday evenings.

Defunct games:
The Found World
This was a short-lived D&D 4E campaign I originally started this blog to document.  I was the DM and one of the dominant characters was a female bugbear warrior.  That and an off hand comment by Zak Sabbath on his blog, Playing D&D with Porn Stars, led to the naming of this blog.  The game ended when I could not get enough regular players to run a 4E game.  I could get players for the Pathfinder RPG and switched to that, starting the Southern Reaches campaign, listed above.

This was a slightly different sandbox game set a thousand years after the cataclysmic ending of the Necromancer Wars.  The players were a group locked outside the city of Verden for three months amongst the ruins and war-debris left behind by the Necromancer Wars.  The campaign ended abruptly when the DM got a better job in a different state.  This was a fun game where I was a player.  I miss it.

That's about it for now.  I'm also mulling over a Traveller game.  It doesn't have a name yet and I'm not even certain who I'd run it for, but I like the idea of it and will occasionally "talk out loud" about it here as I develop it.


  1. Glad I could send you some traffic. My own blog only has a pathetic nine subscribers (half of what yours has), but I think that's a side effect of being on Wordpress instead of Blogger because I still manage a few hundred hits a day.

  2. Agreed - I would be a follower for your site, but for the Wordpress/Blogger issue. As it is, I regularly jump to your site via Google. (I usually check it during the day from the DayJob, so I don't want to Favorite it on the company browser.)
