Two Scoops

Oh well, my monster never made it into Two Scoops despite being shortlisted.

Great idea, and really enjoyed being part of the idea, but it just didn’t work out.  I am not 100% convinced about the CGI for the monster, as it seemed a bit lame, especially compared to the weapon CGI, which I thought looked really good.  Oh well, it is not my place to reason why these things are what they are, but it would have sure been great if the ‘Greater Fyr’ would have made those clips 😉

 

Gratz to tall the winners and runners up, on a great competition.

Wyrld Map

Years ago, I did a  big map for a world O wanted to develop for my own roleplaying game.  My motivation floundered and it got relegated to the pile of ‘stuff I might look at again one day’.  I really like the map (which was black and white and hand drawn), so I’ve decided to start working on it again digitally (the map that is, not the rpg) 😉

Here’s current progress;

Wyrld Revamp

The various ‘continents’ were race-specific;

Havenland – Human

Myrklund – Orcs and Goblins

Narrasil – Elves

Nor-Kharad – Dwarves

Tessel – Halflings

Neath – Tainted Humans

Hsst-Agor – Snakes/Lizards

Avenholme – Avians

etc…

Inn of the Last Hope

This was possibly the most atmospheric RPG session I had (years and years ago), where I GM’d Gary Gygax’s Dangerous Journeys RPG.  I had my party head-hunted by the priest of a large town to deliver a small package to a friend of his in an outlying border, where his friend ran an Inn.

They arrived at nightfall, and the Inn was silent and dark.  I ran it like a macabre horror.

The package was a holy symbol, the innkeeper had requested it because he thought his Inn had become possessed… in reality a demon lived in the bottom of the well, and came out at night… it was classic.

Greater and Lesser Fyr – Fantasy/Mythical Creature

 

Both creatures are swamp-dwelling, monstrosities that survive by eating any flesh they can get hold of.  Once ‘gripped by Fyr’, there is often no chance of escape, and suffocating, constricting doom ensues.  It is unsure on whether the Greater Fyr are capable of casting magicks, but there elusivity, cunning and calculated attacks on folk who stumble into their fetid domains suggests this myth may well be true…

Greater Fyr (15ft when rearing, 50ft long)

Greater Fyr v1.0

Lesser Fyr (6ft when rearing, 20ft long)

Lesser Fyr v1.0

Enjoy, MG.

Character Names…

What have been your best and most favoured character names (any genre)?  I’m talking about ones you have created (rather than hijacked from films/novels lol);

Mine are;

  • Kallis, Jyenna and Kyessa DeBastion (the DeBastion Sisters) – female human cleric, fighter and fighter/thief.
  • Kildrellan – male human armoured fighter
  • Adliandantus – male elf wizard

I’ll add more, when I am not rushing to leave the house lol 🙂
