The Story So Far…

When my friends and I initially started the Savage Tide Adventure Path, I tried to write down a summary of all of our adventures. I’ve only found one such summary, the one for the introductory adventure “There is No Honor.” The rest of what follows are fairly simplified versions of the events that transpired during the groups inevitable voyage to …

Meet the Cast: Belanor

It was bound to happen that I would create an elven character for this experiment. Elves are my favorite fantasy race, and most of my fighters have never performed very well, so I wanted to see how a 20th level fighter would fare. During the battle, Belanor didn’t disappoint, in fact, he struck the killing blow. His equipment is a …

Meet the Cast: Damien

Damien was the character of one of my friends when we originally started the Savage Tide Adventure Path. When I decided to move the adventure up to the final confrontation with Demogorgon, I had to basically create him from whole cloth. My first character ever was a ranger, so they’ll always hold a place in my heart, so the work …

Meet the Cast: Eshana

I was first inspired to create Eshana by the iconic psychic artwork by Wayne Reynolds. I decided to do a little research on the area of Oerik known as Zindia, and I’ve been learning a lot about Hinduism along the way. Eshana Female human (Zindian) cleric of (The Goddess) 20 LN Medium humanoid (human) Init +1; Senses detect chaos; Perception +10 …

Thoughts on Zindia

While working on a party for my Savage Tide game I was going to run for myself, I saw the illustration for Paizo’s iconic psychic character Rivani and I decided I wanted to create a character from Zindia. I did some online research, because I had no idea about Zindia until I saw some place names on Anna B. Meyer’s …

Bodhiratna

I’ve been developing a couple of artifacts for Eshana, my Zindian character for the Savage Tide Adventure Path. I’m not a hundred percent certain I like the powers or wording of this one, but it’s a work in progress. What do you think? The idea was inspired by the spell one with the cosmos in the Deep Magic sourcebook by Kobold …

Meet the Cast: Oloma

Oloma was  initially created to fill an arcane spellcasting / rogue void in the initial makeup of the original party. I was inspired to create a female spellcaster by the iconic sorcerer in the Savage Tide Adventure Path, who would eventually grace the cover of Dungeon Magazine #143. Oloma Female half-human (Suel) / half-succubus rogue 1 / sorcerer 19 (Pathfinder …

The Savage Tide

Way back in 2009 when I was living in San Diego, California, I started to DM the Savage Tide Adventure Path (STAP) with my gaming group, then consisting of two other people. One of them rolled up a ranger, the other a druid. “No big deal,” says I. I decided that they might need some roguey-ness and perhaps some arcane …

Updates

When I first started this blog, I had intended it to be a vehicle for my writing. Sometimes, though, life gets in the way and you don’t find the time to do the things you’d like to do. I say this as I’m cooking some chicken on the stove and realize that the timer I thought I set hasn’t been …

Legos!

Last year my son and I decided that we were going to build an AT-AT while he was with me during the summer. I searched the internet to find some schematics and happened upon a brilliant blog called Gimme Lego that chronicled one man’s quest to do the very same thing we were going to attempt. I read the blog and …
