A confession, just because I got an email from one of my boys jokingly taking me to task. “Lencaldaria” is the name of one of the cities in Tolemar, the setting of the longest-running Dungeons & Dragons campaign I was ever in. I got permission from all of the DMs involved (I was one of three who DMed more than once) to use the name…and I’m not ashamed to admit that more names from D&D campaigns will be popping up here. Not all of them will be mine…
Does Vermis Riid look familiar to you? He looks familiar to me somehow…
The Hell Pyramid is a prison-city. It’s mostly Will’s creation, but I’ve added some touches. More will be seen later.
Weyland’s Bay is the Vatican City of our setting. It’s the seat of the church, and the largest and wealthiest city in the world. It was a name I almost used in a D&D campaign, and it’s named after a character from one of my favorite novels, Cadmann Weyland from “The Legacy of Heorot.”
The Gennesine River crosses the main continent of our setting; it is also known as the Black Ribbon, due to its meandering path and its dark waters. These names are also used by our thief, because the river is a massive smuggling thoroughfare; more illegal money goes through the Black Ribbon than anywhere else. Gennesine the thief leaves a piece of black ribbon in places that she has robbed…usually.

It’s probably a little arrogant for me to be tickled by something I wrote, but Gennesine’s line, “You tell your […]
I try to give Will the opportunity to reuse stuff when he can. If we can reuse stuff in a […]
Okay, I’m going in a completely different direction with this little bit of commentary, because as I wrote the title […]
After I wrote this page, Will and I stopped referring to Vermis Riid as “Evil Bert.” Now we call him […]
I don’t know about anybody else, but the sight of Vermis Riid charging forward FREAKS ME OUT. The wound, the […]
You readers are NOT the first people besides us to see this page. Last week, Will and I went and […]
Am I the only one in love with the little courier icon in Panel Two? That’s pretty damned modern for […]
One of our readers, who happens to come into the bar where Will and I work, asked me if we’d […]
