Tallavanor’s Tales – Conflicts and Murder

When last we left off in Tallavanor’s Tales, our gallant investigator, saddled with a group of not-quite-so-gallant allies, was chasing down a lead about the influence of a certain Count Magnus on the docks of Mulhussen. While our leads were beginning to spiral in multiple directions, a few things sifted to the surface of our clues like weevils in a bag of flour…

Greetings, and welcome to a long post – People seem to enjoy my fictionalization of the various D&D campaigns I seem to be getting drawn into, so forgive me if I lean into that a bit. To start the new year out right, I’m currently working through the beginner campaign – The Lost Mine of Phandelver – with my fiancee, brother, and a few friends. This will not be the most impressive write up, nor will this post be focused on  the actual story – rather, my impressions on running it as a first time Dungeon Master and how it works with a single player character, rather than the usual group.

Naturally – A Day (Month) Late, and a dollar short, time to get this writing show on the road. The goal for this next week is simply to write for an hour each day. That’s it! I can do that!

Check here soon to see more writing!

Any Writing is Good Writing – Right?

Any writing is good – even if it’s for D&D, right?

Random thought of today – Any writing is good writing, right? (write?)

I’m joining a D&D campaign later this month, and after being provided a hefty dose of world building (Thanks DM!) I ended up writing about 4-5 paragraphs about my character. Pretty fun, and I realized how much I actually missed writing. I don’t suppose anyone would like to read my tentative background here, but if you are, leave a comment below and I’ll be glad to post it.

Project 27 – Snapshot

Check out my latest poem.

Today’s Poem.


I take the photo.




Out slides the instant film.

A curiosity, attention grabbing, new-fangled thing

“Take my picture!”

Contrasting reds and blues, hues of green

Deep looks into eyes

that you never



What do these snapshots reveal?

What do these brief windows show?

Childhood ebbing

Drawing close to the end

but holding on perhaps

for one more summer day.
