Infestation    Articles  (Fiction)   (Gaming - In General)

There are places, you have to understand, where the dimensions-I'm not talking about that parallel dimension metaphysical stuff, I mean dimensions like length and breadth and time-where they curl into themselves, and begin to fester. Where foul things evolve and spread...

Battlefield Promotions: Scars of War    Articles  (Fiction)   (Gaming - In General)

A Sci-fi tale surrounding a Earth force captains first command and battle against an unknown alien race.

This is the first 2 1/2 chapters of my on going Battlefield promotion novella, I have attempted to blend third and first person writing together in a smooth natural fashion, and strived to keep true to the details of space as it’s understood by modern astronomy today.

It may be a bit slow to pick up the pace in the beginning, but it does gain momentum.

For those who are curious I’d consider this story to be rated PG-13 or R due to descriptive violence.

Book of the Gods

       By: MysticMoon

This tome looks like a haphazard collection of random notes on different types of paper stitched together and bound within a wooden cover. The pages describe all of the 300,000 gods of the world, each in the language of the people who worship them. The book is stored high in the mountains, kept safe by an order of monks. Reading the entire book confers a deep understanding on the nature of the cosmos and access to incredible power. This only works, however, if it is read without translation, meaning that the reader must master each language contained within. The various monks know these languages but there is typically only one alive at a time who knows them all. This monk would be an excellent source of information and/or magic. IF the PCs learn about it; IF they can find the monastery; IF they can convince the monks to help them; AND if they can understand the convoluted riddle given as an answer.
