Previously, on “The Steelheart Saga“ Having scoured the wilderness for clues to […]

The Slog

Wife and I finally got Covid. (Happy Easter, eh?) I’m on the mend but it really took the wind out of my sails. After-effects are hanging on. On a positive note, it looks like there’s another Osprey rule book in my future. So that’s cool. More info on that story as it unfolds.

Steelheart’s Tomb

A Nightwatch AAR Lazarus Sturn slid the iron door aside. There was a deep grinding noise, then a gust of air, sudden and sick as a dying man’s gasp. Beorn’s torch guttered. Hard shadows shifted on a dozen, steep granite stairs that descended into the earth and disappeared in the black maw of a stone […]

Destresser: Tabletop Combat

To say it’s been quite a year is an understatement. And to think it ain’t over yet. *holds breath* Still, everyone here is mercifully healthy, reasonably sane, and cautiously optimistic about the future. Christmas is upon us. I’ve got family, friends, work, and projects lined up in the coming months…. ‘Hope springs eternal’, I guess. […]
