The investigation leads somewhere they didn’t expect. Continue reading This is How we Role – Episode 9 – Almun Confidential
Review – Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden
The world ended somewhere between a plague and many nukes. Pockets of civilisation still exist but mostly it’s all one giant irradiated wasteland. In this new world it’s mutants who keep hope alive, braving The Zone and bringing back the scrap and resources needed to survive. This is Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. Continue reading Review – Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden

This is How We Role – Episode 7 – Selective Honesty
Time for another episode of the D&D campaign set in my wonderful little world of Telia–campaign guide coming in the future on DMs Guild. It’s episode 7, Selective Honesty, a name I picked because I had a good idea of where the episode was going and was pleasantly surprised to find I had nailed it. By the way, the name is a play on Selective Memory. Continue reading This is How We Role – Episode 7 – Selective Honesty
This is How We Role – Episode 6 – The Titanroot of all Evil
It’s time for another episode of the ongoing D&D Campaign on our little show This is How we Role, set in my original campaign setting of Telia. This time it’s a rescue mission inside the forest of gargantuan trees in the Almun region, Titanroot Woods, dealing with the threat posed by a Coven of Hags, not just on the city of Woodwork but on the denizens of this forest.
Starting with this episode, I’ll use this post to give some behind the scenes look at the adventure design and planning.

This is How we Role – D&D Telia – Episode 2
IT HAS BEGUN!!
After about a year and change of planning and plotting and scheming and writing down a bunch of lore for the world, my little campaign setting, Telia—pronounced Teh-Lee-Ah—is finally alive. We started the campaign nearly a month ago and it was my wish to bring you the first episode right after we recorded it, but unfortunately, due to some technical mishaps, the footage was unusable. Fortunately, we worked out the issues for the next session, so here’s the second episode of This is How we Role – Telia! Continue reading This is How we Role – D&D Telia – Episode 2
Shield of Tomorrow – Beginning my Star Trek Education
Trekucation? Nah. Treducation? Nope. Trekkie Initiation? Nell no. Oh well, I’ll figure out a clever name at some point!
I’ve never been a Star Trek fan, for a variety of reasons, from finding Roddenberry’s vision of the future unappealing, partly because it seems disturbingly militaristic, and the other part because it’s often portrayed as so idyllic (no crime, no poverty, no ignorance, everyone is good and happy and want for nothing) that it’s bland. It’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed some Star Trek media. I really liked Deep Space 9, what I saw of it, because I liked how much the stories were personal, about the characters and how flawed and human they were, compared to those of other series in the same universe–and of course, the Rules of Acquisition. I’ve also enjoyed the recent Star Trek Discovery and even the oft maligned Enterprise, mostly because Doctor Phlox was pure joy to watch.
