Hey, folks - I've been going through the pregenerated characters on WotC's website for the upcoming Rage of Demons Adventurers' League campaign, and modifying them to suit my tastes. The first one I tackled was the Wood Elf Cleric. I decided to make a character portrait for it, as well; I think the portrait can work as a male or female character. Since I did it, I thought I'd share it with you in case you wanted to use it in your own game.

Here's the pre-gen PDF:

It finally arrived today! All three boxed sets of the Dragon Age RPG bound into a single hardcover volume. I preordered this back at the end of April, and I'm quite pleased to hold it in my hands today.

+John Fenton I remember back when my friends had their first children - twins, no less - and the effect it had on our gaming. It's tough, especially when they get old enough to walk and talk, but we managed to find a way. It wasn't quite the same as it was before, but you learn to be more economical with your prep time and how you run the game. So you have my sympathies. I think Dragon Age/AGE is a good system for that, since it doesn't require nearly as much work as, say, Pathfinder.

I highly recommend playing the video games, too. The story in the first game, Origins, is fairly standard epic fantasy fare, and I know a lot of people weren't as crazy about Dragon Age II (I liked it, though), but where they all really shine is in their characters, and how they interact with you and with each other. And, of course, it helps to be able to see what everything looks like in the game world of Thedas.

If you feel like dropping the cash on them, I would also really recommend The World of Thedas Vol. 1 & 2 from Dark Horse as supplements. They're big hardbound books that detail the world. You're getting a lot of the same information about Thedas that you get in this single-volume edition of the RPG, but you also get a lot of great illustrations from Bioware, and as an art guy, I find that worth their weight. It's good for sparking GM inspiration as well as giving players something to look at when you describe a rain-soaked hilltop in Ferelden, the gaily-colored city streets of Val Royeaux, a woad-and-mud-stained Avvar warrior, and so on.

Session Reports  - 
 
In tonight's session - our first - our band of 0-level villagers set out to delve into the ruins of Abberscythe Abbey in a gambit to save lovely Essa the miller's daughter from a demon's claim on her soul. Walteph the rutabega farmer asked that she be married to him if he was successful in this quest. Though she turned him down, he vowed that he would yet prove his worth and devotion to her, so perhaps she might change her mind when he returned.

Sadly, it would be Brega Treetall, the giant of a woman who had been born under a loom and cursed with clumsy fingers, that paid the price for Walteph's bravado. Clad in rusty chain mail and with club in hand, she let her impatience with the others' hesitation get the better of her, and as a result was burnt to a blackened corpse. Rest in peace, Brega. Your herb garden will wilt without your attention.

The first of us is dead. Who will be the next to fall...?

Saw this posted on the street in Portland, Oregon today.

Granted, it was right outside Dark Horse Comics' office, so I suspect trickery, but...still...

My friends have dared me to call. I do have pretty cool dreams overall, but I doubt that counts.

I thought the background for Drew Davies' Wood Elf Cleric pre-gen for Rage of Demons could use a bit of punching up, so I modified it to include more Rillifane Rallathil-specific lore and roleplaying hooks from the Forgotten Realms wiki, and drew a character portrait. I may do the same with the rest of the pre-gens, if I have the time before Rage of Demons begins this week. I think this portrait can work for a male or female character; for the others, I'll do a separate picture for male and female versions.

Here's the pre-gen PDF:

I was a little surprised to see that there were no new playable races included in the Rage of Demons Players' Guide. I was kind of hoping Goblins might have been included, but alas, they were not. I guess I was spoiled by Elemental Evil's extra races; I had hoped they would be a regular feature.

Ah, well. Looks like I'll be playing that Drow at long last...unless I go for a Dwarf...or decide to bite the bullet and DM... In any case, it's going to be hard to wait for September!

It states that you will be able to ur the Out of the Abyss appendix A. Just like how in Princes there was the genasi race and the spells in the appendixes of that book.

Stopped by a new store in Des Moines called Gamers, which is basically GameStop. Selection wasn't bad; pretty much what you would expect. I wasn't able to find my latest goal (Persona 3 and 4 for PS2), but I did find this on the shelf.

Are there drugs inside?

Some good points here to consider. I'll have to make certain to emphasize my English skills when I next engage in job-hunting.
 
This is an interesting article and it fits my own career experience. I make the majority of my income as a business consultant and marketing teacher.

I majored in English Literature.

Dealing with car issues today, alerted to the problem by a dashboard symbol. This seems pertinent.
