Patron: Golsimea, the Coming Change

Golsimea, the Coming Change is the scorched land’s promise of a fertile field. She is the chaotic bowels of the earth giving birth to a diamond and the young adventurer’s broken arm teaching a valuable lesson on the path to glory. Golsimea, the Coming Change was the centerpiece patron of a mini-campaign we played last […]

Patron – Pwyk, the Huntsman of the Wild

“Pwyk, the Huntsman of the Wild is the satyr master hunter of the court of Elfland. He is fast and agile, but nevertheless a formidable warrior.” This week’s piece on KitN continues the coverage of the Court of Elfland with Pwyk, the Huntsman of the wild. This patron links up well with the rules for […]

Patron: Lady Wyel of the Cold

“Formally under the Elfland court, Lady Wyel lives in the cold north of the Elflands. Her touch is frozen, her hand is cold.” The Cold Lady of the Elflands was a necessity for our campaign, and I’m absolutely joyful as Antti joins us as a writer on the blog. There’s a civil war going on […]

Festive Patron – Saint Nicholas!

“Ho ho hoo!” – Jolly Old St. Nicholas of Yule Mountain Just too late for the holidays, it’s the patron we all remember growing up: jolly ole Saint Nicholas! He is fairly unique in that none of his abilities can be used on the caster themselves and that he requires a character be generous to […]

Patron: Nekthelos, the Emperor Oracle

“What if someone had eyes to see your future from beyond time? Would it matter, or would it be the same?” Nekthelos, the Emperor Oracle continues my long standing saga of the ancient hyperboreans (previously mentioned here and here).

Patron – Daenthar, Progenitus of Inspiration

“Journal of Alexei Ridworff, Cog-o-Mancer Extraordinaire, Entry 1337.5/2: My mind constantly flashes with inspiration! Mayhap I could combine the powers of the sun with a multi-bolt crossbow design? And then mount it on the cogwork man I worked on last week? Or possibly power the contraption with the phytophlogiston from the rootdistiller out in the […]

A Thing from the Between-Spaces

“Worlds exist, this we know. And between them, something else. A non-space, limitless and incomprehensible. Not a dimension, but the lack of it. In that unfathomable realm, things float. And watch. And wait.” This weeks article is a double whammy: an eldritch, existential, ectoplasmic patron from beyond, and a magic item to introduce it to […]

A Field Guide to Giant Man-Apes

“Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, Sasquatch…these names refer to things seldom seen and often feared. Their forms and colorations are as varied as the names used to describe them. Giant creatures that often live in isolated wilderness, but sometimes come into conflict with civilization. Even when in contact they are often described with a timidity that […]

Patron – Hidden Lord, God of Secrets

“Wizards, sorcerers and witches have an unending thirst for hidden knowledge. It is thus no surprise that the God of Secrets is willing to deal with them, offering patronage and power to those who dare to step closer to his hooded form. Supplicants would serve well to be wary though, as Hidden Lord is himself […]
