[Handout-RPG] Jadepunk NPC Journal

By | 4th January 2015

In addition to providing a newsletter for my players (as detailed in my last post here) I also wanted to create a sort of NPC journal that would store details on major NPCs that have been encountered and that would act as an aide memoir for both my players and myself; i’ve created a rough… Read More »

[RPG] Kaiyu Yuuto

By | 2nd January 2015

When I originally published my post showing the characters for our Jadepunk, we hadn’t yet received the background for Kaiyu Yuuto (played by theRogueDM) since Jenny was feverishly working away on the background, well it’s now arrived and it was definitely worth the wait; I thought it was worth putting in a quick post to… Read More »
