Thornwatch: Rest

matt-the-writer:

     His lungs felt fit to burst, burning with every labored breath. The ground offered him little comfort to ease his struggles, the dirt unwilling to share whatever wisdom it had to offer. The Sage took great pride in his abilities, and he wouldn’t have traded them away for anything in the world. But at that moment, he envied the rest of his party, all of them infinitely more experienced in the great and horrendous misery that they called sprinting.

     When the Blade had called a halt, the Sage had been absurdly grateful; asking for a reprieve would have been unimaginable, embarrassing. At least if their tracker called for a break, he could rest without his pride being wounded, maybe even act disappointed at the delay. That would have been the ideal outcome anyway; when they stopped, his legs had decided now was a good time to take a break, and he’d fallen flat on his back, huffing and puffing like a man thirty years his elder.

     I need to get a familiar. All the great wizards in the old tales have familiars. Something nice and big that I can ride. A bear would suffice. Yes, I think I’d rather like having a bear. The thoughts were disconnected, absurd, but at that moment the idea of riding about on the shoulders of a giant cave bear had an irresistible draw. I wonder if the Guard would let me ride a bear. He’s shaggy enough to be a bear himself.

I was a teenager in the 60s, so I can’t resist anyone who turns something into a rock band, especially when it’s one of Frederator’s cartoon shows. –Fred

I edited my 60’s Adventure Time girls ! Look, Marceline is playing the bass ! And I thought LSP would be perfect as the lead singer of the band 

I can’t believe my first post hit 32.000 notes, that’s crazyyy ! Thanks everyone !

Thornwatch: Lessons

matt-the-writer:

     He drew his hand back from the soft bristle, his fingertips tingling as if they were being poked by a dull needle. The Greenheart had taken her time bringing them back to their own flesh this time, and while there was still pain, it was nowhere near as intense as it had been the last time they’d withdrawn from Niles’ mind. He shook the sensation from his hand as the Greenheart stood, once again adjusting the strap on her right kneecap.

     “What did you see?” The Guard remained brusque, still clearly displeased by the delay. The Blade kept her silence – something the Sage was grateful for – but her gaze jumped from his face to the Greenheart’s, impatient, almost imploring them to share whatever insight Niles’ last moments had bequeathed.

Thornwatch: Pain

matt-the-writer:

     They drew back their hands as one, as if they’d touched some unseen brand and been burned by it. The Sage winced as pain lanced up his arm, further accenting the fresh agony left by the scar on his left flank. He was back in his own mind, back in his own flesh, and once again trapped with his old wounds. He chanced a look at the Greenheart to see if she was similarly afflicted, but either she felt no pain, or she was much better at hiding it.

     The Blade had settled herself at the foot of a skinny birch tree, but the Guard remained standing, and brought his gaze to bear on them as they recovered from their foray into the dead man’s mind. “What did you find?” He certainly wasn’t one for wasting time; the Sage did not respond right away. He could care less what reproaches the others had for him, but better to let the Greenheart answer, and see how she would respond.

Thornwatch: Niles

matt-the-writer:

     The doe’s ears perked up, and Niles rolled for cover behind the trunk of an oak, desperately hoping that his quarry hadn’t spotted him. His heart nearly stopped in his chest as he rolled over his bow, afraid that he had felt it begin to splinter under his weight. Now wasn’t the time to check; true, his bow might be broken, but it wouldn’t do him much good anyway if the doe fled, and he was afraid even taking the weapon from its sling would send her running for the trees.

     He waited for his heartbeat to slow and his breath to steady before daring to poke his head out from behind the trunk. If the doe knew how much of a scare she had given him, she gave no indication of it; she’d begun to root around the trunks of nearby trees, searching for some loose bit of growth to root out. The hunter allowed himself a small sigh of relief as he drew the bow from its sling, and began to examine it for damage.

Thornwatch: Shadows at Dusk (Pt. 1)

matt-the-writer:

During the aforementioned trip to Boston, I had a chance to play test Mike Krahulik’s new tabletop CRPG, Thornwatch. With the help of our amazing DM, Jaime Dillon, my friends Mu, Kait, Casey and I had a chance to play a cunningly simple, yet absolutely amazing game, with a story that took us on a wild ride and refused to let us go.

Mu and Kait have already taken the time to explore their characters a little more (and in Mu’s case, break my heart, the monster), and I wanted take some time to play around in the head of my character, the Sage. It feels like it treads some well explored ground, and maybe it’s a little bit trope-heavy, but I figured this was as good a place to start as any.

Hope you guys enjoy!
