WOAH! This is the 100th post!! This one snuck up on me, so I’ve put a lot of thought into what I wanted to write and finally decided to share some reflections from the past year, and the things I’ve learned since starting this whole creative journey.
In “Midnight”– the first Tales from Iyastera one-shot— players can explore one of the many legends about the Red Queen, an immortal being who thrives upon the fervor and bloodshed of battle. Before you delve in, here’s some background lore about one of Iyastera’s most well-known deities!
It should come as no surprise that I love storytelling. It’s a supremely important part of the human experience that drives creativity, imagination, cultural knowledge and traditions, and helps to make sense of the world around us. Every culture around the world has its own set of traditions, from oral storytelling to dance and visual artwork. Even the elements within the stories are emphasized and communicated in a myriad of ways, beyond the method of transference itself. The more I study these different practices, the more inspiration I find for my own storytelling style…I hope you will find them inspiring as well!
Long overdue, here is the finished character sheet for Jawri the Tabaxi Ranger, from the upcoming Heroes of Iyastera mini-campaign, Welcome to the Guild! This sailor-turned mercenary is one of the possible companions your party may meet as they work for the Indomitable Bastions, the newest Adventuring Guild in Iacosta.
