Fucker Stole My Name

I feel like I should say something, but there's nothing to say (unless you want to hear about Women and Family in Rural Taiwan) and I should be studying for a physics exam right now. There is something to look forward to though...

Chapter Two: Flames Of The East

Coming of the Byzantine


First, however, I need to write and run Chapter One ("Order Of Ascension", so something like that). See, I started a little RPG group that will be playing a swashbuckling campaign that I'm in the process of writing. Taking on the time commitment of writing and running it may not have been a good idea, but I did it anyways in the hope that it would take me one step closer to my dream of founding a gaming company. I said our first meeting would be this Saturday, and although I need to have very little prepared for it (we're not even rolling up characters), I've hardly started making the setting, barely thought about the mechanics I'm making/adapting for it, and have only the faintest outline of a plot. I also have that exam, a book to finish, and a lab report looming in the distance.

If only magic was real so I could cast "time stop"...

You do realize that time stop only lasts like three rounds right? Cuz it really doesn't help you in the long run considering time spent memorizing.

Although... if you had enough high level mages pumping out scrolls I suppose you could net come out on top.

dude, I thought you said three musketeers-ish, anything with a byzantine/eastern influence is like 10x cooler...

The byzantine are just a plan for the next campaign, and it will still be musketeers vs. byzantines

The Juicy One said...

...you realize there's a difference there of at least 2 centuries? (I know it's an RPG but you said you were trying to avoid magic/fantasy and the like...)

It's not set in real Europe, just something very closely based on it. I reserve the right to bend history as much as I want.
