The original Rimalni

I was watching Jordphan's latest videos and noted during his recent Outlands video that a race exists known as the Rimalni.

Their range of abilities is strictly aligned to provide a 'balance' to the multiverse, going so far as to polymorph into various forms of creature to ensure said balance.

They seem to have evolved from organic celestial creatures into something more akin to modrons, or...

Two stories

Thursday, November 23, 2023 - 05:03
This is me now.

I had forgotten the mental drain that running multiple games can be. Socially, I don't have any issue with it. However, keeping the threads untangled and straight in my mind during game takes some real honest planning.

Maintaining a game driven by my own story is one thing and running two games is another thing, but running two games that are tandem on a timeline or storyline is a new challenge for me.

It's a heavy amount of work to get the characters written and any lacking points can quickly lead to problematic outcomes if I'm not keeping abreast of my story as the games...

My own little world

I'm not Tolkein, nor would I compare myself to his genius, but aspirations and dreams are what they are.

I will never be Tolkein. My work will never have or be what Tolkeins is regarded for. Best I can expect, I think, is that a few people appreciate and are moved by my stories, but then that's all I'm really asking for, is that I tell a good enough story that the few people who attend my games are emotionally moved by the events therein.

There's nothing more satisfying then seeing the passion that players put into the world I'm creating, helping me define and shape and create together as we all play within our collective creation.

I provide a doorway into the Forgotten Realms...

A Catoblepas wrangler.

So the new season begins, and with it the chronicles of the Farsea Swamps continues.

I'll admit, I did not assume that I would become so invested in this story, but the more I develop the world, the more meaningful characters I develop and become intrinsically familiar with, the more I can't help but fall in love with it all.

I suppose that's no different than any other author who takes pride in their work, but I am sincerely surprised that this world and its characters have grown on me in such a fashion.

The best part about it is that I find I'm in love with the...

Starting from the middle

Tuesday, May 16, 2023 - 20:53

An interesting point that Jim Uhls (screenwriter of Fight Club) mentioned in an interview I caught recently, is that he looks to key scenes that a story should have and write those first.

He called it the 'scent of blood' or in other words, to tempt your creativity, to put yourself in the script and grow outward. Instead of trying to start from a seed, get immersed in some thing you're passionate about and let the story grow from there.

I can get behind that.

When I start a new campaign, I look to players to provide a decent enough back story that we are starting from...

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.
