Feldspar is the name given to a group of minerals distinguished by the presence of alumina and silica (SiO2) in their chemistry. This group includes aluminum silicates of soda, potassium, or lime. It is the single most abundant mineral group on Earth.

'Shnike' is the sound I imagine leather makes as someone wearing lots of it moves around. Like wudwudwud that cordrouy makes.

This last week was a good set of sessions.

Story's developing; objectives are being achieved; questing's being done.

The 'Cormy.' storyline is based in Malorens Rest at...

My first major cock up

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 19:08

I don't know that I'd ever say I'd bombed on stage in the past.

Monday, I bombed. I bombed in no small fashion, completely unable to maintain myself towards a goal.

I'm really ashamed if it, because at the beginning and end of the day, I'm master and commander, I'm the writer, the director, the producer, and I'm the dungeon Master.

Not the dungeon practitioner, not the dungeon casual; the dungeon fucking master.

Monday was a lesson learned. Two actually:

#1, I got detailed, but I didn't take it far enough.

#2, I didn't rehearse that shit.

Robusting the Story

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 11:28

While the title is a play on romancing the stone, the playership is anything but stone like.

Mondays playership is vivacious, exciting and inspiring. How refreshing to be faced with such passion in the game.

The story line is developing and characters are growing in my notes. As it goes, I'm aiming to keep things in short cycles, with growing stakes over each iteration.
Something leads to something a bit bigger, rinse repeat. Now that they've retrieved Jasper, they can play escort mission which should present a neat combat scenario.

I've got to...

With great population comes great responsibility

Remember this guy?

It's been interesting, spending the last few nights writing on my phone; notating ideas and directions for the upcoming Monday.

I have a plot and closure for the current 'thing' that will include whatever new people arrive. That's all in the can, but what comes after?

I have an idea of what I'm doing with the introductory splash of magic, but how far do I want to take that?

I have an idea of how I can make that an episodic piece, although I could argue that I've already failed to address my need to conduct episodic sessions.

So long as I plan ahead, I can have...

Back to the brew

Home brewed

So, I've decided to drop Curse of Strahd for a while.

In short, I need accessibility and Curse of Strahd is not dynamic enough. CoS demands that the players be familiar with the story up to the point they're at. Dropping people into the storyline does not go well, especially given how open ended the game tends to be.

With that said, I decided last night that it was about time to dial it back to a more grass roots approach. So it was that last nights game explored a more vanilla side of D&D and a more robust role playing experience.

It felt a lot more natural and...

Playing D&D in Kelowna, B.C.!

My name is Dooley, and I run Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition for players in the Okanagan Valley.

We operate several groups, and the games are a semi-public affair where regular players play every several nights a week from 7pm until whenever the sessions conclude.

Each session is a dynamic and fun episode, each in an ongoing campaign.  Each player is encouraged to be a part of the story.

This site serves as a hub to my game.

If you want to email me directly you can do so at dooley@dungeonmaster.ca

If you live in the Okanagan, and you would like to get involved with the game as a player, feel free to email.  I might respond.

You can try to call me out on Twitter, or Facebook as well.  That always goes over well.
