The backer’s specific piece for July, a systemless piece on the Wayfarer’s Rest, is available for my Patreon backers! It’s the core set piece for the Stormlands setting, an inn that can host adventurers more or less indefinitely. This month will be bringing my backers a piece on the Fellwood, an aberration-haunted forest to the east of the Wayfarer’s Rest. Do you want wolves with half a dozen red eyes? The Fellwood has you covered!
Thanks to each of my backers, who enable me to continue this blog and other related projects. If you like what I do here, please consider going to my Patreon page and chipping in even a buck a month – I promise that pretty much everyone on Patreon would rather have a hundred one-dollar backers than a single thousand-dollar backer. Additionally, if y’all push me up I can start providing more content, because every buck in helps lift the stress and anxiety that comes from doing something like this in our current economy.
In other news, later this month should see the start of the Wrath of the Righteous game and possibly the beginnings of another campaign that rebuilds 5th edition around the concepts and conceits of a few popular SNES games, tentatively titled Legend of the Mirrors.
Tomorrow I’ll be back with more of the usual content, barring any disasters.
Today, I’ll be describing more of the world I laid out the setting concepts for previously. Tentatively titled The Land of Storms, it’s going to be the cohesive background for future fleshed-out Patreon work even as those pieces will be intended to be able to be used with minimal effort in any setting.

As a reminder, I have a Patreon that helps keep me posting here! Backers get a monthly tidbit of writing, mostly comprised of flash fiction, as a thank-you for supporting my blogging and creation efforts! Everything – even a dollar a month – is sincerely appreciated.
It’s the first day of a new month, and I have a couple things brewing; today, I’m going to talk about what I have in store for the coming month. I have another review coming up of a freshly-released product, I have the prepwork for next month that I’ll be loosely detailing here as I work through it, and more besides.

A monthly reminder that I have a Patreon; if you like what I do, please do consider contributing, as the best form of encouragement for me is “Hey, people are helping me pay down my bills!”
Also please be aware that I will shortly be introducing short fiction, possibly here or possibly on a related blog, and backers will be getting monthly short fiction starting this month!
Thanks to my current supporters!
I’ve updated my Patreon; now there will be monthly mini-adventures for backers, using OGL or CC systems I’m familiar with as the basis.

Today I’m going to discuss a bit about what I’m working on as a Patreon side project using the Cypher System – a superhero setting built around the concept that until recently the world was as we know it, followed by the arrival of strange creatures known as eidolons that bond to a person and grant them superpowers.
