Welcome back to another Tallavanor’s Tales! In today’s session, Tallavanor gets to meet some bosses, and some bosses bosses, and for once, isn’t filling out the paperwork! Yippie!

The room stank of death and despair. The vampire was dead, but our party had barely survived the experience. The slowly smoldering form of the creature that used to be Prince Erik Ramfk. We pull back to the main room, dragging the unconscious form of Gregario behind us. Claudia falls back with us, while Maxwell crawls into the main room. We sit there for a while, healing up some of our wounds and bringing Gregario back to consciousness. Slowly but surely, we make for the river, hoping to get back to our safe house before encountering any reinforcements in the night.

Coming Soon! The Field Guide to Temerrit Adventure Setting!

, , , ,


Hot on the heels of my last adventure module – Kohtumine: The Great Gathering of Ships – comes a setting module with a distinctly less nautical flair and a focus on the interplay between towns and villages in the region called Temerrit. The Field Guide to Temerrit adventure setting will provide ten distinctly different town maps – from small caravan style gatherings to desert outposts to a massive capital city. Each of these can be used as is, or as a stand in to represent a new location of your choosing!

Release the Kohtumine!

Kohtumine: The Great Gathering of Ships, is now live and ready for your enjoyment! Get my 5th edition friendly high-seas adventure module on DMs Guild now for only $9.95. Missed all my earlier posts? Check them out and learn more about this awesome adventure setting, perfect for any levels!!

The Kohtumine (Cou-tu-mine) is a great gathering of ships in the middle of the ocean during the week before and after the summer solstice. Imagine a thousand ships, all tied together, forming a floating city as far as the eye can see. Their masts touch the sky and the hubbub of commerce echoes beneath the waves. The Kohumine is a once-in-a- decade occurrence, famed throughout the seas and oceans. It heralds the changing of the trade routes, the tides of power, and the crowning of a new Lord or Lady of the Oceans. 

In this world-neutral adventure setting module, you’ll find a brief history of the Kohtumine, the major factions that seek to gain power during the two week gathering, seven map inspirations for encounters, a random event table, a dozen new NPCs, downtime activities, ship stats and upgrades, plus sample mission hooks for parties 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, and 16-20, as well as ideas for how to adapt the Kohtumine to your setting!

Writing, Maps, and Concept by Daniel Ottalini, Cover art and some interior illustrations by Tim Williamson, with feedback by Tim Williamson and Gordon Moore.

New Anthology Coming & A Summer Event Announcement!

You heard that right! In response to all your demands, I’ve decided to take all three of my amazing ebook novellas – Roma Aeronautica, Antioch Burns, and the Last Gladiator – and turn them into a printed anthology. While I don’t have any new material to include yet, I’ll sneak a few other tidbits into this anthology, such as a preview of the History of Rome and the New Caesarian Colonies. This anthology should be available this summer.

Speaking of Summer – Mark your calendars! I’ll be at the Maryland Renaissance Festival again this year (Tentatively, based on Maryland CoVID rules!). I’ll be at the Renaissance Festival to sign this newest anthology, plus all my other books, on Saturday, September 4th, 2021. I’ll be back with more information in the future!

Until then, remember to hit that subscribe button and follow this blog for more updates on this, my Dungeons and Dragons adventures & modules, and more!

Welcome back to another look at the Kohtumine! I’m nearing completion, and based on feedback, this adventure setting looks to be nearly 50 pages in length! Hefty! Today I want to share one of the pages of the Kohtumine, a sneak peek at a new category of ship for your enjoyment, the Sloop! Smaller than the ‘regular’ sailing ship, but larger than a keelboat, this heavily upgraded Sloop is the Azure Vestige.

Greetings everyone! Tallavanor’s Tales have finally returned! If you’re missing out on things, check here to see what you’ve missed.

You can hopefully expect more Tallavanor’s Tales in the future, but in the meantime, here’s a rundown of what you’ve missed!

Final Kohtumine Focus: Tradespont

You’re going to have to speak up! I can’t hear very well in that ear. That’s what happens when you face down pirates in the Gulf of Hertanzia and…oh, you’re not here for stories. You’re here for the goods. You want weapons? We’ve got them. You want every type of rope imaginable? We don’t have that, but the people across the way do! Exotic metals, gemstones, jewelry, if it isn’t here, then you’ll have to go to the Silks. But no one wants to go there, you come out smelling like a flowerpatch. Unless, of course, you’re looking for perfume, in which case check my cousin’s ship three rows down.

Kohtumine Focus: The Silk Cluster

Silk? I have silk. Every color of the rainbow. Stripes? Yes, of course, whatever you prefer. Solid colors are my favorite as well, and that green is a particularly bright and…uh…charming, that’s the word. As you know, we only procure our products from the most organic plantations in the west. The color you’ve chosen comes from a dye made by the illusive Tumril Lion Beetle. Thousands of them are crushed up to get that color. You want a discount? How much are you willing to buy? Free pillow with every 200 feet of material!
