Dustwood is technically not a wood from a specific tree. It is an created fuel for fires. Starting with the sawdust from a sawmill, adding a mixture of wax or pitch, and a few other things, the mixture is pounded or pressed toghether tightly. It is normally smashed into a round container, so when it is slipped out, it looks like a small perfectly round "log". (actually a lathed log, but you get the idea). It can either be used as a log or slices of a log can be used for a fire. View

When was the last time a character caught a cold or flu? Real people get them every now and again even with solid heating and dry interiors. Your characters are out in the cold and wet, and even inside is not always dry and warm. Imagine having to stop your dungeon crawl, sitting in a tight defensive position, while you all are feverish.

If a fighter has a +1 sword that only gives that plus one if he does an exhausting practice routine in the morning, he's liable to ditch the magic sword and just use an old fashioned chunk of steel. Rather than being wore out and need to rest a couple hours before he gets started just in case he needs that plus one, he could just strap on a blade and ride off without having to deal with all the issues. (From Something Agar said) View

I was in a game with a GM that had a Masters in History, who made is a point to mention that the local peasants didn't have wheelbarrows. The rest of the players just shrugged that off but I knew that the GM was trying to tell us the peasants were on the knife edge of starvation. All that from wheelbarrows? Yes, because before the invention of the wheelbarrow it took two men to carry that load. In it's time the wheelbarrow was the most explosive production multiplier that the peasantry could get their hands on. This is worth two tips: One about the power of the Wheelbarrow and the other is the moral of the story...that people need to know the point you are trying to make. View

Carnival revelers wear masks and concealing clothes. (Wearing of masks in Venice was first documented in the late 1200s) It allows for the social classes to mix, easing social tensions. View

The Hammer – The Builder for Unique Clients By: MoonHunter
   2 Years, 3 Months, 1 Week, 1 Day, 17 Hours, 12 Minutes ago

Some people call him Dr. Hammer. Some call him Mr. Hammer. Those with a flair for the melodramatic call him “The Hammer”. Others simply call him Hammer, much the way people call Madonna or Sting a single name.  He is the one you contact should you have a "unique building" need. 

The Riot Dog By: MoonHunter
   4 Years, 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 18 Hours, 54 Minutes ago

Summer riots are a fact of life in the Cities of The Peninsula.  So are wild city dogs.  Yet, this one seems different.

MoonHunter's Top Tips for 2009 By: MoonHunter
   4 Years, 5 Months, 4 Weeks, 7 Hours, 35 Minutes ago

I am always giving advice to various gamers on various game forums. I am constantly giving the same advice over and over again (cut/ paste repeat). Once a year I think about the advice and put together The List.

Figments By: MoonHunter
   4 Years, 9 Months, 1 Week, 3 Days, 9 Hours, 56 Minutes ago

This just in from the BBC. It seems a number of medieval archers and swordsmen have stopped a Grinch Attack in Nottingham mall.  We take you live to.... 

Elves and their Ways By: MoonHunter
   4 Years, 10 Months, 1 Week, 4 Hours, 22 Minutes ago

Have you noticed that The Elves all belong to the same culture, all speak the same langauge, and all seem to be equally good at everything?  I have a theory about that.

Shambala By: MoonHunter
   5 Years, 2 Months, 4 Days, 10 Hours, 31 Minutes ago

To be “On the road to Shambala” is a metaphor for seeking redemption, purification of spirit, and seeking The Great Divine. It is found in teachings of several faiths of The Great Divine and in the writings of many prophets and philosophers. It is not just a metaphor. There truly is a road to Shambala.

Citizen Prime By: MoonHunter

The Quiet By: MoonHunter

Yes it is. A man could get lost in himself there.
Is that a bad thing?
Depends on the man.

Malign Hypercognition Disorder By: MoonHunter
   5 Years, 11 Months, 4 Days, 18 Hours, 9 Minutes ago

It is not an infectious disease, but it is a plague upon the world.

For it spawns villains. And not your garden variety villains, but epic villains, master villains of the most dangerous kind Evil Geniuses.

101+ Scenes in the Modern Western City By: MoonHunter
   5 Years, 11 Months, 2 Weeks, 5 Days, 15 Hours, 8 Minutes ago

Everytime you look at something in The City, there is something going on behind it. It is a moment caught in the tangles of time of some other persons life. It is those little moments that make The City seem so alive.

New Earth-That-Was By: MoonHunter
   6 Years, 1 Week, 21 Minutes ago

The Earth-That-Was got used up.

The folk that could made for the sky, and made themselves a new home out here. They made a dozen worlds and all their moons just like Earth, but it weren’t all roses and sunshine.

The government, in their vast and mighty wisdom, made the worlds of the Core great havens of culture, medicine, and trade, then dumped everyone else out on the rim with nothing but forty acres and a donkey, and expected them to be happy about it. Eventually, they decided even that was too much, and took back the one thing they’d let the Rimworlders have - their independence.

So naturally, there was a War. The people who just wanted to be left alone, versus the big bosses who wanted to control everything. The bosses won, of course; now everyone’s part of the Alliance and supposed to love, honor, and obey them, ‘til death do us part.

But that was six years and a few million lives ago. Purple or brown, we’re all just folk now. Out here on the Rim, we just do what we have to, take what we can, and thank Whoever every time a new day sees us still flying.

Except for the few of us they took everything from, whose daily prayer is just for a chance to get some of it back.

We’ll fly as long as we have to, but we’re looking for a place to land.

Piel -- Border By: MoonHunter
   6 Years, 1 Week, 30 Minutes ago

On their beacon, such that it was, we came in from the east, low across the wet and mud.  When you get close to the Pielshome Field, the beacon is pretty useless. Visibility was good and I saw the oil lamps that lit the green circle we had been assigned by the controller.  As soft as a leaf, I sat us down. A perfect landing graced with a perfect sunset filling our windscreen. The sun set rose, as the sinking began.  The paving bricks they use to line the landing circles they only hold so much weight. The mud is everywhere here.

Madeira -- Border By: MoonHunter
   6 Years, 1 Week, 31 Minutes ago

As the Earth That Was was being "used up", the Dysporia began. Any Rocky World in the Lifeband were made to be habitable by people.  This produced a huge number of barely habitable planets, most of which are out on the frontier.

Madeira is not one of these world. It is a rich and lush world where the fine arts of wine making have been reborn, along with a culture of civility and honor.

Deseret -- Rim By: MoonHunter
   6 Years, 1 Week, 32 Minutes ago

All through the Alliance there are those that follow the Shepherds of The Book. The Book is old and came from many Great Teachers of the Past that walked The Earth that Was. These folks have followed a Great Shepherd into the Desert that is The Rim and have been given the Promised Land.

Nob -- Border By: MoonHunter
   6 Years, 1 Week, 32 Minutes ago

Nob was a fairly developed colony world. It had a few cities, some manufacturing, and something that passed as a space port. Then a wonderful disaster showered riches and power upon it.

Mandan -- Border By: MoonHunter
   6 Years, 1 Week, 33 Minutes ago

I was watching one of those famous sunsets while I was waiting for the Mule to come back.  I saw the spot in the sun. I thought it was a bug. My gut knew what it was. I was running for the cockpit before it registered in my brain. It was time to get off this planet, as the soil was about to run red with blood.

LaVenda -- Border By: MoonHunter

Hot Dang, we are going to LaVenda!

Lewiston - Rim By: MoonHunter
   6 Years, 1 Week, 34 Minutes ago

Flying into Lewiston, once you get low enough, is difficult, captain. There is constant wind sheer through the valleys. You have to fly careful, as the wind will slam you into a mountain side faster than a card player tossing in a bad hand. Of course the town you want to get to, Porsen, is the very worse. So best we land in Ramsy territory on the Blue Diamond Lake there, and take the mule up the "road" to Porsen. I just hope the Ramsy and the Regina towns arent feuding any more. I hate dodging bullets that arent even meant for me.

Banglore - Rim By: MoonHunter

The accepted mode of getting otherwise unobtainable information is to go visit the cranky old hermit living in the mountains. It's just the sensible thing to do. So, naturally, everyone takes their monthly excursion to the hermit's hovel to consult him on everything, from lock-jaw to lovesickness, necromancers to nasal viruses.

Now, if everyone's always visiting the poor old hermit, there's going to be an enormous queue... "Wellcome to the Hermitt's Hovele, Please Take Ye a Number and Have Ye a Seate" reads the sign outside the packed dwelling.

Imagine the poor hermit, having retreated into the mountains to escape this precise situation...
