About Benoist Poiré

Born in Seine Maritime, I spent my childhood between Normandy and the French Ardennes. I then lived for a long time in Bar-le-Duc, in Eastern France. I am now on British Columbia's Central Coast, in Canada. Among my many interests: roleplaying games, fantasy, modelling, reading and writing, religions and spiritualities, politics, history (particularly ancient and medieval history), good foods and spirits.

Speaking of role-playing games, I am a liege for the Iron League, the official site from the fans, to the fans of Iron Heroes. My dream setting? Ironheart. Topic: An uchronic 12th century, in England, during the reign of Richard the Lionheart. Robin Hood meets Conan meets HP Lovecraft's mythos, grosso modo.

I ran live games of Ptolus and Arcana Evolved recently. You can visit the campaign logs of these campaigns here (Praemal Tales) and there (Seven Spires), respectively.

I am currently running an Original Dungeons & Dragons Campaign (rules of 1974 and the Swords & Wizardry retroclone) set in my own Greyhawk setting blending the 1983 boxed set The World of Greyhawk with E. Gary Gygax's later works on Castle Zagyg and the East Mark. Other blended materials include Necromancer Games' Bard's Gate and Rappan Athuk, Brindenford and the dungeons surrounding Chordille Keep, from, my own designs of the Sunken City and the Black Abbey of St. Yessid, and much, much more. To read more about this campaign, don't hesitate to check out The Citadel of Eight, its dedicated blog.

I am also a contributing author on Robert J. Kuntz's Lord of the Green Dragons blog.

For more about me, don't hesitate to check out my bare thoughts on Livejournal.
