Ils eurent des visions de leurs avenirs respectifs. Pour les Vol'jin et ses sombrelances, la paix ne dura pas longtemps. Constatant la puissance de leurs mojos et acceptant les promesses de Vol'jin, Bwonsamdi assura le chef des sombrelances de son soutien. Il connaissait bien Zalazane et semblais se douter que le sorcier avait plus d'un tour dans son sac. A cet instant, le sorcier qui se tenait devant eux disparu.
Il traita donc directement avec Halduron Luisaile et Vereesa Coursevent pour s'occuper des belliqueux Amani. Garrosh fit alors part de son intention d'attaquer Theramore. Selon lui, l'impact serait pire puisqu'en prenant Theramore, l' Alliance y verrait l'occasion d'ouvertement relancer le conflit avec la Horde.
A : Way back in I just set out to make a fantasy role-playing game that I could play. The differences are subtle but numerous and embrace both game mechanics, world view, and playing styles. Saving rolls can be made against all of them, and the actual attribute is more important in the making.
The character with Luck of 15 will do a lot better than the character with Luck of 10, on average. Roleplaying games are like candy. Some people like vanilla; some like chocolate; some like strawberry or peppermint. Q : Speaking about flavors, your fantasy world — which you came to name Trollworld — has a very distinct flavor that reflects in the short stories you wrote about it. A : Yes, I am publishing a novel about Trollworld. For the careful reader there is important history happening in this novel.
Anyway, the story is called Rose of Stormgaard. It shows a new twist on dungeon delving.
- Assembly Life (The Church and the Work Book 1).
- Account Options?
- ISBN 13: 9782302013810.
- Sonata d minor?
It has a few juicy bits that I think my French readers might especially appreciate. Gonna have signed and numbered copies available on a first come first served basis. Beautifully illustrated. New maps no one has seen before. The dungeon is in the back of the book just waiting for a Game Master to personalize it for his own game. Q : You always add a lot of folklore and details about Trollworld and its inhabitants in your fiction.
In Rose of Stormgaard, I found a very funny description of the gaaks. By the way, what about the gurrks? I will mention that gurkks have no eyes at all and their favorite food are the gigantic dholes that live in the Caverns of Bone. What a perfect novel! Favorite monsters?
L'histoire de Waha
You see them showing up in my adventures and fiction. Number one has to be the rock troll itself—a being made of living stone with lava for blood. Number 2 would be the Gristlegrim dwarves. People think of them in Tolkienian terms as one of the good kindreds, but I think of them as monsters carved from stone and then animated and disguised as good guys. Number 4 would be goblins. Number 7 would be all the strange creatures created by Lewis Carroll—jub jub birds, bandersnatches, snarks, and so forth. Why do people love monsters so much? Is it because we empathize with them, or because we secretly love to be frightened?
Q : Well, maybe both explanations are true, but you seem to empathize a lot with them. And as if it were not enough, you declared the Empire of Khazan dominated by monsters! Back in the early days when Monsters! This would have been back in In the first big Monsters! A week later Bear Peters and friends came back with a bigger, tougher group of monsters, and they trashed the city—there was hardly a wall or palace left standing after the big fire at the end of the adventure. I thought my city was ruined, so I gave it to Bear.
He rebuilt it and made it better than ever, but then I needed a new city. Since it was the Capitol, it needed a ruler, and to rule in lands with as many wizards and different species of intelligent creatures would require someone of almost godlike power. Ancient cities frequently had god-rulers, especially in Egypt and Ur and both the Chinese and the Japanese thought of the emperors as divine.
Kings are a dime a dozen. Hmm, how can I mingle all the different kindreds? Let the ruler be a bad guy—one of the Monster kin. What was her name? Female, so there has to be a soft sound and L is about the softest consonant there is.
The name Lerotra popped into my head. How could I make it even more brutal and sexy—maybe some breathiness to it. The aspirated H pronounced huh would do it, and if one was good, two was better. Roll the Rs, pronounce the Hs, stop the glottal. I like it. And thus I had a name for her before I knew anything at all about the character.
A : Khara Khang! Khazan found him and recruited him, but he was always more tolerant than the old elf. Having pretty much made a successful and happy place out of the Eagle Continent, he went off with Khazan to see the world, and found it very intolerant. There is probably some kind of romance and intrigue between L and KK, but I have never worked it out. I like him best in his shape-shifted form as Arahk Gnahk, the uruk culture bringer. Q : Over the years, you wrote quite a few stories set in Trollworld, your own fantasy world.
However, in your adventures, solitaire or otherwise, the emphasis is usually on combat, not on story-telling, the perfect examples being Arena of Khazan and Hunting Party. I have actually studied such things as narrative structure, what makes good fiction, and all such academic literary stuff. A good story in not just a sequence of events, but also shows character development and growth. Thus, it is much easier to construct a gaming narrative than a story narrative. Games are just situations that can be repeated and have a simple win or lose resolution. Stories require a definite character experiencing a varied sequence of events that change that character in some way.
It is up to the player to bring the character to the setting. The story depends on the character and the character depends on the player. The Writer and the Player are two different people. I do like to run my characters into game scenarios and develop stories out of them. Q : The people who had a chance to play with you as the GM often say that you are a great story-teller, very good at improvising things and describing lively action. On the other hand, with the exception of Gristlegrim, you wrote all of your GM adventures in the past few years.
Also I started my own Tunnels and Trolls fanzine called TnT which ran for several years after or so. I released a new issue every 2 or 3 months, and much of my creative efforts went into writing and editing for TnT. This eventually quit being my personal web pages and became Trollhalla. This web activity took most of my time. After I separated from my wife in and moved into my apartment I found myself with more time on my hands.
