Greetings Googlers!

I'm Dyson Logos. I mostly draw maps. I'd like to do a lot more writing and other stuff, but the reality is that my cartography takes up most of my time and is my primary income source. Google+ is my primary social media feed - where I do almost all my posting and interaction.

99.5% of my posts on social media are put out entirely public. This means if you circle me, you'll get my entire feed without me circling you back. If your comments provoke my interest, I'll look you up and add you to my "on trial" circle at some point.

90% of my posts are RPG material, with somewhat over half of those being cartographic in nature (usually my works in progress and completed works). The remaining 10% are usually jokes and things found around the web aimed at various people in the RPG community - primarily in the OSR community.

Oh, and Googly Eyes. I have a googly eye obsession, particularly when paired with RPG material.

I have strong social and personal beliefs and occasionally that bleeds into "political" statements (often involving things that I don't feel are political but are instead just common sense truths but that I've been told are actually not). 

Since most of my posts are public, please feel free to reshare anything I've posted without having to ask me first (well, as long as you are using a technology that gives me credit for the post in the first place - so resharing here or onto other social media platforms is fine - resharing by copying/pasting to your blog may require that you actually throw in a small credit or something).

I made these sheets during a DCC game session, so they have my shitty handwriting on them instead of a font.

But they are now yours.
With some tweaking and fiddling around with the design after playing a session with these new sheets, I've decided that I'm happy enough with how they work now and won't be messing with them for a while.

Which means it is time to release them to the public.

On the south side of Dawnharbor, near the Fairie’s Citadel, is the small Ennos Estate – a pleasant two-story stone house with fenced in front yard and decorative shrubberies. Klebor and Manfred Ennos, both eligible bachelors of the city’s landed gentry, keep to themselves generally and only the younger brother Manfred is ever seen at the local drinking establishments (although it is rumoured that Klebor is a member of the Order of Ochre and Garnet).

The house includes guest facilities and kitchen in the single-story wing, with the brothers private rooms being in the second floor.

To those who are too nosy for their own good however, the Ennos Estate can seem a little strange. Odd people come and go at odd hours, sometimes carrying far more than any decent city person would be in packs and bags. Sometimes they stay for an hour or two, sometimes for a few days. And yet they are never seen in the company of the Ennos brothers. For the Ennos boys are semi-retired adventurers and it is hard to fully break away from your old life, especially when your companions come knocking because most of them are homeless wanderers.

Thus the Ennos estate has a set of secret underground chambers converted from the old root cellar. Accessed from a secret room behind the library and sitting room, these chambers have served as hiding places, treasure storage, demon lockdowns, and even hosted an extra-planar portal on more than one occasion.

A high-resolution version of the map can be downloaded for your personal use from the blog post at https://rpgcharacters.wordpress.com/2017/05/23/secret-of-the-ennos-estate/

You have ONE JOB...

Second attempt at the legal sized DCC character sheets. This feels a little better than the last one, so it might be ready for release.

With "Big" Helmut hitting level 4, I figured it was finally time that he deserved his own record sheet instead of being crammed into a level 0 sheet.

Turns out he really didn't need all that extra space. Helmut is a simple man it seems.

Granitespire is a city that I really like, but never got a chance to use in game even though I drew it back in 2013. It is also the home of my favourite guild of silver and cloth merchants - the monkeys of Granitespire.

So thanks to my awesome patrons, I'm releasing the map under a free commercial use license!
