Garesia: Land of Broken Shackles, Part 1

Welcome back! Building upon last Friday’s post, I plan to continue detailing the campaign I inadvertently came up with wile creating an adventure for the last geeknic. You can read all about that the post in the previous link.

Garesia began to coalesce as I wrote the adventure and in the following days after running the adventure it had been bouncing around in my head. Since I created the adventure for D&D 5e and that the system I’m currently playing, many elements from that game made their way into my conception of the setting, but I’m sure it could easily be adapted to other systems. I’m going to try and organize my thoughts and provide an overview of Garesia’s history and the people and creatures that make up the campaign. I’ll cover the first part, history, on this post and continue with other topics in other posts. I’ll probably revisit some of the ideas presented here once I’m finished, so there may be revisions. If there is significant real interest I could compile all this information into one PDF to share with the readers of Stargazer’s World. Let’s see how it goes… Continue reading Garesia: Land of Broken Shackles, Part 1

This past Sunday, Puerto Rico Role Players held its 20th Geeknic. The name of this latest edition was: Make Geeknics Great Again! (No relation to a certain political campaign, just a joke while trying to be topical!)

We’ve been doing these picnics for geeks for some time now, and I’ve written about them before on a few occasions. We went back to the Guavate Recreational Area in Cayey. Located at the end of the porcine delicacies road (click on the previous link to learn more) in the Carite Forest; we’ve held previous geeknics there, and while the location is sadly unkempt, the lush forest and the breeze just invite you to game in one of the many large gazebos.

RPG Blog Carnival: Technology in my Games

Greetings dear readers! Michael recently wrote about our efforts to revitalize the blog, and I think we’re off to a good start. He invited our readers to discuss the types of posts and topics they enjoyed, and in one such comment Voidman said he liked one of my earlier pieces about using technology at the gaming table. Thank you for the kind words; it’s a pleasure to have you, and so many others as our readers.

This topic, the technology I use as a GM, is constantly evolving, and is one that deserves some revisiting periodically. On this post I’d like to discuss the technology I currently use to run our Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition campaign. It also happens that the topic of the RPG Blog Carnival for September 2016 is Game Master Tools, Aids, Apps & Hacks, so it all comes together rather fortuitously!
