The Lost Jewels of Alcanse Session #2: Something’s Fishy

(What's this? I'm chronicling my current D&D group's adventures for posterity).

Ryland told us that he booked us passage on a merchant ship going upriver, owned by Marken Silk. Quigley, however, said he didn’t want to be on a boat, so his brother Zyro would take his place. Hmmm. We loaded up on supplies and smokable herbs (ahem, Bardalph), then boarded the ship and met the captain and crew, who all seemed like dependable dudes. Silk said

The Lost Jewels of Alcanse

More for me than anyone else, I've decided to post the recaps for the newest D&D adventure I'm participating in. It's a homebrew campaign run by our pal Jacob.

A new year of storytelling

How's your January?

I've been busy.

I've fired up my rusty, rattling Patreon page this month because I've got a lot of stories backing up in the ol' story pipes, and they need to go somewhere.

If you liked my previous writing, I think you'll enjoy this new batch of speculative fiction. There will be science fiction, fantasy, some fairy tales, and a few adventure stories with a strong whiff of roll initiative. I'm aiming to put up a new
