    Happy Birthday, Dough! I hope you have a wonderful day. I loved your war stories and I just can't not copy again your suggestion of how to make sessions instantly interesting as above. After reading it again now, it still holds a great impact with me. Thank you!

    RPT Newsletter #001 | Mapping Dilemma – How To Stop Your Players From Yawning

    I can completely relate, Johnn! Although I would like the idea of a player (and his PC) drawing a map of the dungeon while they traverse it, it is almost always a 1-player fun. This one player (normally me, if I play once in a while) has much fun to cartograph the route, but the others don't...

    Borderland - Ratskeller Inn (Holt-Lindeck)

    For a split second, his arm went numb with the impact. The strength of the two combatants breaking the improvised club into splinters as his attack was deflected. From a corner of his eye, he saw the axe rushing towards his side. And Arthur reacted with sheer trained instincts and jumped back...

    Borderland - Ratskeller Inn (Holt-Lindeck)

    Through the veil of rage, the warrior's instinct slowly struggled, but it was too late. Arthur saw that his blow to the half-orc's face had brought him too close to the axe's reach. His blow did hit and he could see his opponent's head being brutally flung to the side and blood spurting, but it...

    Borderland - Dancing Cauldron (Holt-Lindeck)

    Occupied with his own business, the one-eyed man seemed not to notice that Jacob had urged Echawan to take the pouch. She did of course, seeing a chance to make some real coins. Her eyes gleamed with sudden joy. Turning now to Jacob though, as the lad spoke up, the one-eyed man broke into a...

    Borderland - Ratskeller Inn (Holt-Lindeck)

    The threat of the filthy orc erased all reason in the knight's conscious mind. Somehow Arthur tried to utter a few more words to defuse the situation. But with the rage in his belly out of his mouth came only words of such hatred that even the half-orc's eyes widened in disbelief and the other...

    Borderland - Warehouse by the river (Holt-Lindeck)

    The demon instantly cringes away protecting her eyes with her palms. Only a moment later, she slowly opened her fingers and peeked through, looking at him menacingly and with tight features. Indeed, she could be callous, that was becoming clear. "That was NOT necessary. You are a very rude one...

    Borderland - Dancing Cauldron (Holt-Lindeck)

    The one-eyed man glanced over. Squinting he watched Jacob and Echawan at the far table dine on a splendid dish of stag meat stripes from the near pine forest, tender salsify and steaming potatoes. Silently he talked to Gervin. He had inspected his own purse thoroughly before asking for Gervins...

    Borderland - Warehouse by the river (Holt-Lindeck)

    For a moment, the cat-like woman stops smacking her lips and caressing her hair, as a fine eyebrow rises. She is looking in Hogar's direction, but as he notices, not quite at his face. "Oh? Riddles you say? But I speak as clear as your blood." Her libs curl up in a smile. "Only the one, not...

    Borderland - Dancing Cauldron (Holt-Lindeck)

    (I rewrote the story of Auheim and how it came to be. It seemed to have been confusing to read at my first go, now it should be clearer, I hope. And I hope that this is all true, as I am also guessing.) EDIT: (I also corrected Frundir to be a gnome, not a halfling.)

    Borderland - Dancing Cauldron (Holt-Lindeck)

    Teo walks over to the group at the big table. He has watched the small commotion gather and the big man with arms like grown men's thighs proclaim that he will explore and investigate what has befallen Auheim. Teo took his time, though, to watch as people came and went and only approached the...

    Borderland - Dancing Cauldron (Holt-Lindeck)

    Teophilius Litvak had just come down the stairs to ask the waiter Gervin for more ink and parchment. He was going to meticulously write down all the ruins he came across, already known or not known yet. After he had talked to Sergeant Eremis two nights before, he had focused on what they had...
