Session 1 - The Dung Run

The Dung Run was one of the most dangerous (and profitable) smuggling routes known to the Seven Dragon Princedom. Few were brave enough to attempt it, and only one had ever become legend at making it.   Since the Splintering, this profitable venture has been abandoned... Until now.

Session 0 - Character Creation

Join me to test-drive the technology, learn more about the setting, and start talking through character concepts.

Read the Report
Test Drive the Cypher System with me as we explore a new campaign setting I am creating, fueled by a rich lore I am still trying to put into words. During this campaign, I'll figure out what online gaming feels like, and see if I can keep to the plan of becoming a 120 minute GM. There will be at least 3-4 full length campaigns to follow in this setting (each to last 3 months or less).   Try it out. Reach for something different.
