A gamer for nearly (gack!) three decades, I run a regular Rise of the Runelords campaign and I am also playing in the Council of Thieves and Carrion Crown APs with the same group of five players. Like many gamers I’ve recently discovered the joys of Kickstarter. As a backer of Monte Cook’s Numenera our group has the option of playtesting Monte’s new endeavor and I’m really looking forward to the opportunity.
I have a wonderful wife and two great kids: a fourth grader and a kindergartner. If you're a parent you know the challenges of having time to game, let alone prepare...not that I'd have it any other way.
I'm just lucky my wife is a gamer too.
2012 RPG Superstar Top 16
2013 RPG Superstar Entry:
Octavo of Perseverance
A divine spellcaster who worships Desna may read from the book while preparing her daily spells. This ritual reading grants her a +1 competence bonus on concentration checks until she next prepares spells. She may choose to dismiss this effect early as a free action to gain a moment of providence which allows her to cast divine spells without provoking attacks of opportunity until the end of her turn. Only one spellcaster can benefit from the ritual reading per day. Also, 3 times per day, any follower of Desna may read an inspirational passage aloud as a full round action to grant herself or an ally a +2 luck bonus to a single skill check made to retry a roll that had previously failed. This power does not allow a character to retry an action that cannot normally be tried again.
(It did not make Top 36 status by a long shot but I'm still proud of it.)
