Temple of Temptation Prologue
Temple of Temptation A Dungeons & Dragons WG Story Prologue: The Redriver Five The chilly mountain air left a thick fog that greeted the adventurers as they came up the footpath. "Why can't we ever go plunder a ruin near civilization or something!" cried a tall human at the back, dressed in dark leathers and wearing a big cloak. "Why do you think the lich chose this place to hide?"  A thin, graceful eladrin in embroidered red robes looked back at him.  "So he wouldn't get pestered by adventurers like us." Lady Daria Alvesdottir sighed as her companions chattered behind her.  She was the leader of the Redriv

The Commands of a King
"You are not a king because you are above your people.  You are not a king because you are better than your people.  You are a king because you have shown that you are up to the task."  The man in his officious robes stood before the young man seated on the throne, hands outstretched and waving as he droned about the duties of a king, of being the servant of the people, rather than their master. "Can we just get the coronation over with?" the young man finally ventured.  Some of the members of the court who looked on breathed a sigh of relief, while the Voice stopped short.  Apparently he was the only one not annoyed by the interruption.

If god was a potato would we love the light the shadow of sleep hangs over my mind and body chalk scratching across the board people scratching across the street ideas scratching across the internet planet scratching across the velvet-stretched sky.

Game Night
Shake. Toss. Clatter. Let’s see that’s thirteen plus six. Nineteen. Nineteen. That’s a hit. The paladin swings his sword and nearly shears the griffin’s wing off. Okay, now it’s his turn. Another player picks up the small plastic jewel. Twenty sides. Icosahedron. Shake. Toss. Clatter. A natural one. That’s a miss. The wizard’s spell fizzles in her hand. The master sits across from us, behind his screen. The griffin attacks the paladin. Shake. Toss. Clatter. Natural twenty. That’s a critical. The griffin’s claws rip the paladin’s mail, leaving deep, almost fatal wounds. Ho

Mall
We climb up, up Away from the dim, dim Metro. The stairs move beneath my feet The sky is grey and heavy with clouds The air bites with a chill Should have brought a coat. I’m a Minnesotan I’m tougher than this. But I should have brought a coat. On solid concrete again, looking In a wide arc. Green grass and trees Interspersed with gravel and blacktop, Surrounded on all sides by huge Buildings, trying to look impressive on this chilled DC day. People. They’re all over today. At the popcorn stands The hotdog stands Flowing in and out of the museums. I look around again There aren’t any true shops here

Half-Elf, Half-Dwarf
Half-Elf, Half-Dwarf Arctus looked up ahead at the light flickering from the cabin window. He could see all across the large grassy meadow between the edge of the woods where he stood and home. The herdsmen had taken the sheep home by now. He had one rabbit with him and a whole lot of empty snares. There was no denying it. He just wasn’t meant to be a trapper. The locals said anyone with elven blood was a good hunter. But then the locals assumed that elves were better at everything, from hunting to singing to walking. What was that they always said? “Anything a man can do, an elf can do while balancing on a tightrope made with a si
