Introducing the Year of the Risen Rune

Introducing the Year of the Risen Rune Monday, April 30, 2012I took a break from the Gen Con push today to write this blog post, and my mind started to wander. I thought a bit about days gone by and how last year at this time we were under just as much pressure trying to get Ultimate Combat off to the presses in time. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Anyway, I also thought to myself, Self, what sort of blog were you writing this time last year? ... Aha! myself answered. I...

Hell or High Water—Chapter One: Death, Debt, Doubt

Hell or High Waterby Ari Marmell ... Chapter One: Death, Debt, DoubtThe first of the charau-ka died before he knew he was in danger. ... The huntress had tracked the apes and the traitor from the kraal of the Imjaka, through towering boles and curtains of hanging vines; across mattresses of leaves and fungi-infested soils that greedily retained the prints of passersby. Those who had hunted alongside her had long since turned back, unwilling to press so far from home. ... But she would not...
