Alantir Autumnsun

Behold my latest character for Chris’ D&D campaign: Alantir, Cleric of Obad-hai. Successor to Estevial, the many-armed Duskling Totemist, who met an untimely end in the hands (or rather tentacles and mouth) of an evil, brain-sucking illithid, who is still at large at the time of writing. Let it be a warning: weak-willed minds make no good opponents for a mind flayer’s stun ability!

Alantir Autumnsun

Alantir is a healing machine. Empowered Cure is his middle name. And soon he may summon bison. Because that’s the thing to do. Summon bison. Really.

An Evening with Vultan

What a lovely evening! With great entertainment courtesy of the dwarven dancers!

Voice of the Seraph

Here are a handful of haphazard pictures from a one-off live role-playing event in south Wales. The event was called Dick Britton and the Voice of the Seraph and was set in a pulp/adventure, post WWI setting. It was very, very funny.

Yes, I got Sucked in Too

A few weeks back I had few days’ holiday, and found myself with a little spare time on my hands (an usual state for me), and thus decided to play a computer game. I am into role playing games – they are my absolute favourite type. So I was scouting around to see what was out these days. Not much it turns out. Some hopefuls were yet miles of (Dragon Age), and some old classics were nowhere to be found (where did I put my Morrowind discs?). It was then that I turned towards World of WarCraft, which had been out for a while but which I’d not paid too much attention to, due to my general lack of time to play. But now that I did have that time, I thought I’d give it a go. Little did I know of course that at that point it was sold out nationwide. Never one to give up easily I set out with my girlfriend Karen and her brother John on a road trip to locate that elusive last copy that had fallen between the shelves and was only discovered minutes before a hopeful soul like myself entered the store. Well, to cut a long story short, we looked everywhere (sometimes twice) and it was the same everywhere: sold out. B*gger. Thus I signed up to some mailing lists promising me notice when new stock would arrive. I got such a notice and put a copy on order, then pretty much forgot about it again, until last Saturday morning when the postman rings the bell and delivers me a shiny new copy of World of WarCraft. We had plans that day though, so once more I put it on hold, this time until late that evening. And after some installing, downloading and patching I was finally ready to go.
