Than longen folk to goon on pilgrimages [Promethean: The Created]

lydgatepilgrims

I took a class on Chaucer in college, and the prof taught us to read Middle English, which sounds more like German or Dutch than it does modern English. Chaucer’s most famous work is The Canterbury Tales, which, as you might know, chronicles the journeys of some pilgrims en route to Canterbury. A “pilgrimage” is a…

The Code of Man [Pugmire]

Sanford. (Son not pictured.)

Today I want to talk a little more about Pugmire. But first I want to talk about the dog in this picture. This is Sanford. He is a rescue pug that we are fostering while we help him get to his forever home, and as I type this he’s playing with a squeaky toy behind me in…

Sunday Poll and Rambling about NPCs

Screencap from Bender's Game (2008, dir. Dwayne Carey-Hill)

I’m running Promethean tomorrow night, which means I should do a little homework on the game today, if I have time after redlining Chill (I’m seriously spending a solid 12 weeks redlining; first Promethean, then Chill, then Beast).
