About the Author
James D’Amato, the world’s foremost Kobold advocate, moved to Chicago in 2010 to train at Second City and iO in the art of improvisational comedy. He now uses that education to introduce new people to role-playing, and teach die-hard Grognards new tricks.

Behind the Sails: Planning Janchi with Jeeyon Shim

James refreshes Jeeyon on the basics of the setting and Jeeyon teaches James about food forests, diverse biomes, and thriving in environments where water is dangerous. This conversation will help Jeeyon build an amazing new piece of Spéir!

400. A Green Hour Part 1

James and Jeeyon create Valerian and Other, scions of ancient gods in a dying world. For centuries the world had been in slow collapse with cultures and their gods disappearing making an alarming number of biomes uninhabitable. Now two unlikely cultures have come together to unite their ways of life and gods in hopes that this union might save the world. Can these young scions overcome their cultural differences and consecrate their marriage on their wedding night?

CONTENT NOTE
This series contains intimate moments, examinations of cultural taboos, and beauty standards. There will be obvious but not explicit references to sex and sexuality.

399. Trial Part 3

The court has heard some extremely compelling testimony about Bruce Orson and his relationship to his alleged victim Abigail Burke. However, one figure has stood out through all of that testimony: The Shadow Lady, an extra-dimensional entity with the power to control minds. Could she have something to do with this terrible crime?

CONTENT NOTE
Although this game is capable of going to some very sensitive and nuanced places, we elected to play a lighter game.  Some descriptions of violence.
