I have started running a new game this year. I decided to go with a game that is popular and would not be hard to get players for. The game I went with is Pathfinder and am I enjoying it so far. I will be posting logs and actual plays as I continue with the game. I went back to Maptool for this game, and look forward to GMing the AP Rise of the Runelords.
(Edit: I realized my geomorph was tragically flawed. So I edited it.)
I had some free time this morning and decided to make another geomorph. Snikle thought my geomorphs looked a little Sci-Fi, so I decided to run with that theme and add a slightly Sci-Fi element to the geomorph, mysterious obelisk. What could have broken the obelisk and knocked it to the floor? I also added two other man made items, a flimsy walkway across a pit, and a doorway from one cavern to another. In one of the caverns I added what looks like water, but I imagine it to be a massive blue ooze, waiting for unsuspecting victims. Or perhaps many smaller blue oozes. All up to the GM of course.
Let me know what you think!

Quite a while back now, my good buddy Matt got me into the game Warrior, Rogue & Mage. It is a very interesting game system that piqued our interest because of the simplicity of it. We have continued to move towards less crunchy games in our gaming group and this one seemed to fit pretty well. We were able to play test it only once, but we liked the game mechanics. You can read the game we played on Matt’s blog here: WR&M game.
The game was great and the rules were easy to follow. By the end we liked the system, but decided we needed to play test it some more. We will definitely be using it again in the future. If you have not heard of WR&M or had a chance to read it, I recommend you download it immediately and read through it the next chance you get. In the mean time, I thought I would post my character here for the Compendium. So, without further ado, here is Danion Rinklefin.
