Poetic Musings

Thank you for taking this literary journey with me! Here I post personal thoughts on social issues, reflections about day-to-day living, and of course a healthy amount of stories inspired by the many games I’ve played over the years. I try to update several times a week, and genuinely appreciate the care and support of all who read these words, whether the post is fanciful or heartfelt.

The Where to Start page has great suggestions for first-time visitors, and all posts are sorted by the Categories you see in the right-side menu; feel free to narrow things down!

The Hammer Fall

The Hammer Fall

Temples have never been erected in Hoar’s name. Shrines to his honor do not dot the countryside. The prayers that reach him are curses, hate-filled epithets wishing pain and affliction on others. Hoar is the god of violent retribution, and even those who wish for his...
