So, I started running this for my best friend and his 10 year old daughter. Their "kobads" live underneath an abandoned dock next to the sea. They are riddled with rickets and have "grog," "fyr," and "foul grass" (lettuce) as wants. The foul grass is on a farming island not far off shore, but it might as well be a thousand miles away.

The trash and detritus from the nearby island sometimes floats ashore, giving rise to the cargo cult of "Little Debbie" and clan names of "Tasty Cakes" and "Coming Soon."

Thanks to tribal knowledge, there was a sunken boat in the harbor. So far, one kobad has died trying to bring it to shore. She drowned, after surprisingly surviving a "triangle fish" attack (shark). And with only 1 hit point! The other kobad got crazy lucky with the dice, but when he came out of the water, the village kobads thought he was someone else, and he decided that was a good way to shake off his bad reputation.

We're only concerned at this point that they have just finally gotten the boat out of the water, the clocks are at 9:00, 6:00, 3:00, and they just added a new Want clock for the wizard they attracted (who wants pearls valued at 100 gp... he makes a brisk business casting Identify spells for itinerant adventurers.) With a fairly low starting population, the Kobads are a little worried that, if the dice keep going the way they have been, they don't have much chance of survival!

Just wanted to share our adventure so far. The 10 year old loooooves the campaign and brings it up to her dad all week long. This is not her first RPG, but we haven't played in a while.

In 2005, I posted on my LiveJournal blog a video of my cat attacking the “mini me” I had knitted him. It was my first time editing and posting a video to my blog, let alone a cat video. The only other video+web I had done was a video from France a few…

At one point, Threadbare was a card game.

Not a good card game, mind you. But a card game.

Putting this into the universe: I'm currently looking for full-time employment. After 20 years in technical communication, I'm transitioning into Scrum Master/project management. Cannot relocate from Las Vegas, but I will travel.
