digging in again

So I haven't written anything on this blog in forever. I've moved, moved again and gotten a new job.  It's been a busy few months, but that's boring stuff that doesn't have anything to do with gaming so lets change the subject.  I haven't been gaming at all, but I have done some further noodling over a 4e hack and the players have made characters, we are ready to game!

The party is:
a Dwarf Cleric, Neutral Good
a Sleestak Thief, Chaotic Good
a Dwarf Ranger, Chaotic Neutral
a Kobold Wizard, Lawful Good

I haven't been gaming, but I have found some sweet old comics drawn by a fellow named Alcatena. They're called Moving Fortress and Subterra, the pics below are mostly from Subterra.

These comics are juicy game inspiring gold- an alien oriental alternate D&D-esque world.  They make me want to play Talislanta.  It is so bad ass that all that Talislanta stuff is online for free and legal. 

Also, I picked up Carcosa from my friendly local gaming store.    This idea has likely already been tossed out into the internet, but can you imagine how great it would have been if Carcosa had been published with a one page dungeon for each hex?
