When you’re wandering around the streets of Great Lunden in the Midderlands there are a number of important buildings marked specifically on the map, but what about those buildings that aren’t marked?
Onwards to the Castle In the fourth episode of our Thousand Lands, B/X Essentials game our heroes press onwards from the ruined village of the Skylord towards Hoon Castle, eager to settle their score with the thieves cult known as the Dark Eye, but are they willing to pay the price?
It seems like today is my day for posting about things faded or disappearing (see my previous post on deleting my Google+ account). If you’ve been keeping up with the various games and actual-plays that I run you may have noticed that there was no session video for my Rose of Westhaven game last week. This is […]
