July fades and August dawns

31 July, 2017

August (a month named after that most Roman of Romans Augustus Caesar) will be a month of personalities from the Sea of Stars (and possibly other places).  If there is someone -or something– in particular you would like to see, please communicate such with me.

I will be off to GenCon from the 13th-21at but page updates will continue during that time (if you are going to GenCon, see my con advice here).  If you have not commented before, your comments will have to wait to be approved (sorry).  Hope to catch up with some of you fine people there.

What Character Archetypes do you enjoy playing, reprised.

24 March, 2017

We were discussing what character types our current group tend to gravitate to, so I thought I would repost this article and see what people think of it (almost seven years later):

The Naive Expert / Talented Innocent

Who to be today?This is one of my favorite character conceptions, someone who is very, very skilled in a specific field but naive about the greater world.  These character are very good at what they do and very confident of their own abilities in their field and totally lost once they step out of that narrowly defined area.  They are usually young and without much in the way of social or combat skills, at least at the start.

Why play this archetype?

Welcome Ill omened February, fare thee well January

31 January, 2017

January always seems to go by so quickly and we now move into February.  February gets its name from Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa performed at this time of year.  The Romans considered February an ill-omened month which is why it is only twenty-eight days long.   For this month we return to the theme 0f curses, cursed items, ill-fortune and, perhaps, defenses against such terrible things.  As usual, suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome.

So, what was published on the journal in January, 2017?  Take a look:

September no more, into October

30 September, 2016

Tomorrows begins October, the eighth month of the Roman Calendar and tenth of ours.  It seems the Romans had no special association for October beyond Autumn, but we have Halloween to look forward to at the end.  Thusly the Sea of Stars Design Journal will again have Monsters as our theme as has become traditional for October.

If you have ideas for Monsters, let me know and I will try to make it happen.
