About Me

I have been role-playing for over 30 years, written a book, helped design video games and created worlds. I have also broken my nose with a training sword. Which hurt. A lot.

Where Does Magic Come From – Part 1

Alat├íriel – The Radiant Defender

Alatáriel is a powerful holy sword created for my Etheria campaign. It is wielded by the Duchess of Calindor, who is a Swordmaster by class. Only a true swordmaster can bring the best out of the sword and it has been passed down in her family for many generations. (And yes, the image is a sword from LOTR.)

A Glossary of Sorcerous Terms

Been making use of the excellent formatting tool at to make some almost official looking home-brew content for my Etheria campaign. This mini-glossary of magical terms was created in order to give a Sorcerer, played by one of my players, a bit more substance, detail and reason for their powers. When world-building, I like to think stuff like magic through and have reasons for why things happen. Let me know what you think and whether there is anything interesting in here.
