I am an avid reader of Risus Monkey’s blog, personally I feel one of the better blogs on gaming that I have found, probably the best Risus blog I have found, and certainly a much better blog than mine will ever be. In the next few days I will be posting some characters that I have made for my upcoming setting called Blackwood and dealing with the Order of the Blackwood, a secret society of persons who fight back the darkness, most often in a way hidden from the majority of the populace, so that the rest of us can live a normal life. This group ranges wide and far across the globe and has done so for well over two hundred years, and in fact has had members who are among some of the most famous and powerful people in society….
And so I ramble on about my pet project….
Any who, I have been reading Risus Monkey’s latest venture, a serious fantasy setting, and I absolutely love the way he has structured his characters. So in the highest form of flattery…I am stealing it. I just wanted to throw this out there so credit is given where it is due, he really did a fine job and…heck, why reinvent the wheel?
You can read about some of his excellent characters here:
And tune in for my own take on some characters that will be popping up in my Blackwood setting.
