a little tidbit for my Pathfinder Game

Turns out one of the NPC's has been lying about who she is....

The group finds this letter addressed to "The Gang" upon their Oracle's tidy bedroll, just before the game starts. a little morsel to whet the appetite.


"Gloriana’s" Last Letter


Fellows, it is with a heavy heart that I bid you farewell, as, if you are reading this, I have already left Skull Island. You might think I have run off with that beautiful Fetchling Baritone who you well know I have been trysting with. 

Alas, that was not to be so. While I may stray off the path my Goddess has strewn for me at times, the young baritone is about as evil (- in a radiating it at such an intensity that it makes one who is sensitive to such things a bit dizzy, and eventually, vomitously ill, kind of way) as it gets. Twas merely a tryst, but no more; as you likely do not know also, I am once again single. My wedding contract with Craddock the Djinn, Bess’ right hand man, is over.

I am fortunate, I guess, that the Harrow Deck betrothed me to a Djinni, rather than some culture with a less contract based society. Djinn never stay married for more than the specified terms of the wedding contract, which can be voided or extended as they comes due. 

The contracts usually are year to year. Ours was made bond only by the ancient magic of the Harrow Deck. Neither Craddock, nor I wanted to be wed, or really ever acted as though we were, only together on missions for that first month. No bad feelings between us, by the Goddess. I still consider Craddock one of my best friends, after you sorry lot, of course.

 I was assigned to “The Slash Group” (as Bess calls you guys). You really need to make sure you have another healer around. I earned my keep, and am leaving you my bigger items, back on ship. I have heard the voice of the Goddess, and I must head alone into the Old Lands, where I am to meet with The Dragon Ambassador, and perhaps even the Dragon Arch Bishop.

I cannot tell you more, other than to give you a warning; The Dragons Are Coming!

Yours in The shadow of The Goddess,

Valeria Redstone

Valeria Redstone (at last, my real name is signed.)


Oh PS: My name is not really Gloriana, my real name is Valeria, given me by my Goddess when I became her Oracle. Everything else I may have told you was true, except of course for the obvious lies.

What my birth name was and who I was before that are a mystery to me. One That I may never have time to investigate. 

I am fearful of the Dragons, but hopeful that I can help broker a peace (and hear/see a real Dragon opera!)....I can’t really tell you why I hid my true name from you, but I think you should ask Bess. Oh, and if you ever find Ziggy, give him a punch from me. I am still very worried about him.

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…

The Case of The Haunted Stripper.

So, my friend mentioned to me that he was going to run a tabletop rpg using this RPG rules set. I am pretty sure that he will be using other setting material as well. 
Anyway, I looked it over and was intrigued by the idea of the Wicce PI, a private investigator who maybe has some spooky powers, but is mostly a detective, she gets the really weird cases, possessions, vampires, and so on.  
I came up with a middle aged former Homicide Cop: Moira Alma D’Jeanne, who gets her 'gifts' later in life, she was raised in 'the tradition' so understands what she has, and how to use it, but is uneasy about the change this brings her life. This story is something of an origin story.... Whether this sticks to the game mechanics or whatever is moot, for me, it's backstory, and the character creation is just the germ of who the character is.
This story takes place before Moira leaves the force, and hangs out her PI shingle. She's more Columbo than Sherlock Holmes, More Jim Rockfo…

Undercover in the wastelands!

Hey, while I should be working hard on my  memoir, I have been sidetracked by needing to do a bit of fantasy RPG prose. In my D&D game, I am making use of their off the Earth pathfinder background materials a bit, and mostly though of course making a lot of stuff up as I go. it's how I "roll," as a DM, to put a pun on it, as nerd rules require.
My gang of adventurers, recently found a beautiful golden ship in a Dragon's Hoard. the ship was on auto pilot and took them through space to another world called Aucturn. The last game had folks landing there at the end, and to be continued.
We ended up due to scheduling, and human real life business not being able to play for almost two months. for these same reasons, two players had to cancel last minute before the game this last Sunday. the others still were up for playing, so i concocted quickly that the two missing players' characters in the game were also missing in the game. the two player characters who playe…
