Ser Waymar Royce was the first named guy to die in the novel. I propose a slang term for when a character in a perishes in the first session.

"They're making up a new character because their Rogue got Royce'd!"

Lake Country - patrolled by rural manor knights. Beautiful gorges, gurgling steams, waterfalls, altars to forgotten ancient water elemental deity lords.

Please offer things for the random encounter table (for future blog post).

Found a good Enemy Mine gif for side-eyeing internet bullshit.

Mental note: re-watch .

Camelot has fallen. The Questing Beast has spawned a thousand young. Knights turn bandit as castles crumble.

You are the bastards pillaging what's left. Will you try to salvage nobility from the wreckage or sell it for profit?

I had no idea Greg Stafford had just died when I wrote this. I 'm not sure if this is in bad taste or is a fitting tribute but I'll leave it for now.

Adventurers are called villains, a throwback to when the word meant low-born...

Sorcerer - Poker Demons

I want to use cards as a way to give demons color and structure and relationships with one another - a kind of family/clan/rivals thing and thinking about crime and the seediest sides of gambling as inspiration.

I'm reading Starless by Jacqueline Carey and it is not bad. I've been trying to finish these last 100 pages for over a week now and I'm hoping I'll finish it up tonight. Fun world building, not great, not rocking my world.

Next I want to re-read the first 2 books of N.K. Jemisin's Broken Earth and then finish the trilogy with the new 3rd book.

After that, Descent of Monsters by JY Yang. The first 2 novellas in this series rocked.
