Tuesday Magic Item – Wanderer’s Talisman

13 September, 2011

“The old man who gathered windfall in the woods passed it to me and now I give it to you.  It is a small thing, but it will keep you safe and guard you on your path,” he said, folding my hands around the worn silver talisman.

Wanderer’s Talisman

“Come Aurea,” said Zardarian with a smile, “I have something to show you.”

To GenCon!

4 August, 2010

By the time this posts, I should be on my way to the Atlanta airport for my flight to GenCon.  Looking forward to arriving at the yearly gathering of our tribe.

My GenCon schedule is here for those that wish to find me.

Hope you all have a good time, even if you cannot make it to GenCon.  Go Play and have fun wherever you are.  Will have news, reports and (maybe) rumors when I return.

Tuesday Magic Item – Traveling Towel

25 May, 2010

In honor of Towel Day, an item for the galactic hitchhiker in us all:

Traveling Towel

These hard wearing pieces of cloth are useful in a thousand and one circumstance.  While usually just a simple solid color, sometime they are found with patterns or even with fringes.
