Kickstarter project featuring my own tactical cartography

Time for some news, folks!

I know I haven't been updating this blog for a while but, things suck, life is hard and... actually, I had a whole lot of work to do, including my first actual collaboration when it comes to tactical cartography, "Map Flats", a Kickstarter project focused on low-cost, high-quality vinyl tactical maps for use with D&D, Pathfinder or tabletop games that use a grid to measure distances.
As this is my first real professional collaboration, I'm excited and worried at the same time. I really do hope this ends up being a nice, successful project.

Check it out if you have time, and drop some dollars on it if you want!

The Weekly Character: Indrila Dostan

Hello everyone, I'm back (at least for a while).
I know I know, it's been some time since the last post, but I've had a rough time with university exams, some health problems, and finally (but this is great) I'm currently involved in a Kickstarter project about tactical maps (I'll share the link as soon as the page is up).

As I said, I'm back. And I'm back with a weekly character. It's gonna be the last one (at least for a bit). This is because I realized I was having troubles creating interesting characters every week, and that restrained me from writing other articles about adventures and the likes. Speaking of adventures, this very character, Indrila Dostan, is one of the main NPCs in a module I'm trying to write down. The adventure's title should be "Grindorf's Twilight", but I'm considering changes since it will take a lot of time to finish and I might change it.

About Indrila: She's a human, daughter of a hunter named Walder Dostan. Walder is Grindorf's mayor but, more importantly, he's Grindorf's hero. During the war against the fey that lived in the woods near Grindorf, Walder Dostan killed the fey prince Driste and broke the enemy's will.
Indrila is proud of her father's deeds, and has followed on his footsteps, becoming a hunter herself. Although she never confronted fey in person, Walder trained her to fight their kind because he fears they will one day return. A wise decision...

Halfling is resting! Do not disturb!

Hi guys. Just wanted to say the blog will be dead for a while. I'm terribly busy with university exams and haven't been able to build interesting pregens or write articles, so I'll have to wait till end of September/half of October and then maybe things will become easier. Maybe.

Thanks to anyone who happens to read the stuff I write here.

Halfling out! :(
