I postponed my Flash Fiction Friday post until today so that I’d be able to write a piece based on my first session of the RPG Blades in the Dark (by John Harper). It was a lot of fun even though the GM (read: I) hadn’t quite prepared enough. Here’s a little scene I wrote that took place just after the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The First Score
Yesterday evening it was decided that my at-home RPG group, the one where I’m the GM, will begin a campaign of Blades in The Dark (created by the brilliant John Harper) our next session. I’m very excited to be running this system. I’ve been watching a fair few games of it played online and the mechanics seem awesome, and the aesthetics Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Fog
Normally I write my Flash Fiction piece on the Friday evening, just before posting it. Today I had some time to kill in the afternoon and typed it all up then, butI wasn’t connected to the internet at the time so I’m posting it now. It features, once again, my D&D character Seshmet: The gravel crunched underfoot as Seshmet stepped Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Clarity
I have tabletop rpgs on the brain right now. I recently GMed D&D for the first time, am preparing to do it for the second time in a couple of weeks and casually dreaming of setting up a streamed game of some kind in the spring, if I can. I’m actually having some trouble focusing on my written fiction because Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 21 – Nadja Otikor aka Tristarae
This poor, neglected blog, you knows. I’ll do better, pinky promise. Today I bring you a short piece that’s part of the backstory of one of my D&D characters. I love this character so much, and it’s also nice to be able to write, and even be kinda poetic-proseish like below, but not feel the pressure of a larger project. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – When Mama Died
Hey guys. Happy Friday! What a freaking week this is. There have been some great moments, like defeating the great dragon queen Tiamat in a going-away game for our now relocated GM (who I’m gonna miss) and finally getting to see the Warcraft movie. (Yes, linking to my instagram for contaxt/visuals is a thing I do now). At the same time, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Mirror
Hi everyone! Hope y’all are having a lovely Monday. This week I’m doing something I don’t normally do. It’s Stockholm Pride week, and usually I don’t really participate in it except maybe by watching the Pride Parade but tomorrow I’m going into town to listen to a talk about the portrayal of (even more than averagely) marginalized HBTQ-identities in TV shows. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Happy Pride Week!
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been getting into tabletop RPGs lately. Naturally, one of the games on my “to play” list is the true giant of the genre, Dungeons and Dragons. I’m watching a few D&D streams right now, my favorite being the truly amazing Critical Role. The other day, I came up with a character concept that I absolutely adore Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Child, The Other
Exciting news, guys! On Friday I’m playing in my first ever proper tabletop rpg! Wooh! I’ve played two one-offs before with throwaway characters but other than that I’m a newb. I’m playing with some total strangers over Skype and Roll20 so I’m a bit nervous but also very excited. Wish me luck! This week I have: Kept poking at Camp. I’m Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Getting my roll/role on!
I have recently decided to get into tabletop RPGs, and in a week I’ll be playing my first session with a group, playing in a system called Numenera (which seems super cool). I’ve been working on my character today, so I thought I’d write a small piece of backstory for her about how she met her animal companion. Here it Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Ren and Tiktik (Numenera Character Backstory)
