It’s that time of the month! When I actually sit down and bring myself to write a short story based on a picture I’ve got lying about!

And speaking of lying about, today’s image is:

Not this shit again.

…And I’m making a COMEDY out of it? What??? Bet you’re REAL curious, huh??? …Oh, you’re not? Well, read it anyway, I’m begging you!

Fabletop: Dungeon Day Jobs

What if…the monsters who only live to give you something to fight…had lives of their own?

A bunch of genocidal kleptomaniacs have just come back from a killing spree after breaking into private property, butchering the inhabitants and stealing their possessions.

They are praised and rewarded further for wiping out the hobgoblin menace.

But what if…the hobgoblins…had lives?

We decide who lives or dies. Be nice.

Behold! Yonder lies our hated foe! With steel and magic shall we lay him low! BUT FIRST!

Final Week Fables: Magic Is Friendship

“Friends shouldn’t sell each other out,” it said with pity and reproach, “figuratively OR literally.”

And welcome, readers, to the end of the month and the Final Week Fable! The time when I force myself to keep my writer’s muscles in practice by banging out a short story based on an image in my collection.

What tale awaits us this time? What adventures lie in store? Well, for starters, our hint for this month is:

Chest Spirit
What’s small and magical and red all over?

Fabletop Classes: Wizardly Applications

And unlike Pokemon, they get to SWITCH their moves at the start of each day.

Don your pointy hats and ostentatious robes, get your character sheets and start picking out your most useful and overpowered spells, folks! This post has arrived, neither early nor late, but precisely when I meant to show it!

Masters of magic. Sorcerers supreme. Wizards of Waverly Palace…! …Oh, sorcerers are actually a different thing? Oh, OK then. So yeah, what ARE wizards?

Fabletop Classes: Ba Ba Ba Barbari-Ann

Incidentally, expect them to ignore shields in favour of two-handed, dual, or dual two-handed weapons.

It’s that time of the month, when I return to fables of the tabletop! And just who could be the cast member we’ll be focusing on this week? I’ll give you a hint:

A staple of Dungeons & Dragons.

That’s right, folks, you guessed it! It’s…! …NO, it’s not the BARD! Are you CRAZY?! What in that picture would make you think BARD?

Such a mistaken answer makes me ANGRY. One might say I am even filled with RAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!

Fabletop: Looking For Group Dynamics

“You know what? I abandon my holy order and defect to the enemy.”

Yep, it’s that time of the month where I talk about tabletop gaming! …Yes, it’s now a thing. I even announced it and everything!

Every game needs a player. And players need a goal. So the campaign is set, the story begins, and the actors in this production gather. Their myriad paths will cross and converge in an entire adventure, but there is a great obstacle in their way.

Their ability to cooperate.
