What The Heck, Another Blog?

Yeah, I wanted to share my Game-logs, character backgrounds, and other sundry ephemera of playing the Table Top RPG games that I enjoy so much.

Thing is, lately, as I am transitioning (my Transition Blog), my interest in gaming has been waning. I want to keep gaming, I get a lot out of it. So I'm going to start doing more game logs (not for in game stuff, unless asked to) and little character bios/short stories that give me someone to pretend to be when I'm gaming. Doing all the back story, and game logs (which may or may not reflect the reality of the game session, I do the logs mostly in character, as a Diary entry, "war journal" or whatever style of reportage fits the campaign.

The quality is not polished on any of these, and I won't be doing any editing other than fixing some obvious typos/grammar I may have missed when originally writing.

My first few posts will be some of my favourite Game-logs and character bios from games I've played in the last few years. I'm on a bit of a summer sabbatical from gaming, but like hockey season, despite all my complaints, I'm starting to miss it.

In the fall I will start posting Game-logs after games, and when I start or join any new campaigns, I'll have all kinds of whatever I'm writing, here, as well.

I think I'll start with the characters that brought me back into gaming a few years ago. I joined a friend's 3.5 D&D campaign. we started as lowly 1st levellers. I played Regdar, (a pre-gen, yes) a fighter, as not having played D&D since highschool, I felt playing the tank would be the way to go, no spells to look up, etc. Hit stuff, kill stuff, makeMonty Python jokes= D&D.

Pretty much. eventually Reg gained a "cohort", who happened to be his goth sister (D'espondea, a Warlock), and they had many a crazy adventure, all the way to the time that campaign (set in Monte Cook's Ptolus) petered itself out, around 14th, 15th level.

I had some pictures I'd made in photoshop of Reg & d'es, but can't find the files, right now.  For now i'll make my second entry the D'espondea/Reg backstory... the original, just Reg one is in a .pages format. I don't even remember ever using "Pages". Weird.

The Continued Adventures of ‘Rosie Ramses” In India
After the last part of the adventure that I chronicled, my recollections are a bit hazy as it took all my efforts to stop from getting lost in the dreamtime of Kali. Every step we took closer to Kali, brought her more and more into my heart, and mind. I had a strong image that everything we were doing would lead us north to some kind of conflagration with masked persons, or perhaps we would don masks. I felt especially like I would have no choice and to like the hawk, be hooded before I chose to hunt.
What I do recall is that we ended up somehow on a safari (sent by the government, I later found out, as a test of our walking Lightning Cannon) to hunt what people were calling a Demon Elephant. Not the many statued Ganesh, but an evil giant force bent on destruction. We investigated, taking our lightning cannon, a few tame elephants of our own, and some locals to hel…

RPG post, wha?

Been a while since i posted to this blog. Starting a new game as a player in the next few months sometime. a call of Cthulhu game, which i have never played. My fave thing is creating characters and backstory, so here is a draft of my character Theda Vex, Occult Traveller (she's a chauffeur to madness)
From The Journal of Theda Vex, Occult Traveller.
An Introduction of sorts, dear reader is what I am prefacing my journal with. Obviously, this is less of a personal journal, than it is the history of my existence from the time onward when I became known perhaps with some infamy as Theda Vex.
I was not always Theda Vex. My name growing up, was far more pedestrian, as was I until I took my leave of formal education from the University of America in Paris France, just after the signing of the Armistice. My parents, and their parents before them were ex patriate Americans who lived mostly on the European continent. I have been expelled, suspended and banned from many of the more posh board…
Mail Call for my current D&D group  (first though some history of the game)

Hey folks still interested in reading dorky D&D blogs, as a way to get myself writing more regularly, and having a game of D&D going with regularly scheduled games once more (Fifth Edition D&D is the system we are using) I am hoping to come up with basically once a month a between session bit of something to give players reminders, and hints of what’s gone on, about to happen, and so on.
My current game has five player characters, using more non traditional D&D races, mostly taken from the homebrew site D&D Beyond. We have a Tortle Warlock, A Grung Druid, a Kenku Cleric, Tabaxi Rogue, and an Ursine Ranger.

Elves, dwarves, humans and such are relegated to NPCs and background characters in this game. Only one of the players has a lot of D&D experience, so it’s really a learning the game style of play, which for me as a non looking at tables and charts very often DM I find occasionally ch…
