Purpleworm’s last Gourmee

What happens when a 7 to 8 feet wide, and 50 to 60 feet long, rock eating, purple worn swallows a halfling warlock? One who had made a pact with the Great Old One. Of course, he is lazerated to pieces and then given an acid bath in the belly of the beast. Death should be a relief, deep down in the Southkrypt.

The Great Old One disagrees – a pact is a pact! When the previous form is in ruin, an older form surfaces. Lemmy’s heritage of being a dragonborn is revealed in magical explosion. And the One who is seeking, is getting closer!

the Fellowship of Vertical MayhemThe worm? Head and tail in opposite directions, and stairway chamber covered in purplish mash of gore, with bits and pieces of worm pulp. Yammy!


This summer vacation is nearly over, and what a great holiday it has been. I have had leasure time on home, been on summer cottage on Eastern Finland, swam repeatedly on Finnish fresh water lake, been on Doghill with children, and tomorrow leaving to a history filled bus tourney into Åland. It has been years, when I was there last time. However, the best thing has been the time spent reading my evergrowing piled stash of books.

On Monday the pile went even higher as more books arrived. One for Rogue Trader for planetary world building, the new Star Wars new Core book and it’s Game Master’s kit. And not forgetting the almost complete set of ElfQuest comics on a flea market, costing only 5 euros!

Premium Magic Item Compendium 3.5The first on the pile is Premium Magic Item Compendium book for D&D 3.5, and oh my what goodness it contains! It is a must have for games where you don’t want to use the Complete XXX series, or any other books full of overpowered prestige classes, and just stick to the Vanilla 3.5 Dungeons & Dragons, which I prefer.

So much goodness to read and use. And when the August arrives, the long waited Numenera stuff starts rolling in based on people’s kickstarter pledge. I am waiting my dead wood copy, and while doing that anyone can pledge on this new Kickstarter project for Numenera. Many bookgasms coming, I see in the future…

Weather Forecasting with mountain altitudes and warm/cold sea currents

Fast updates seem to be the norm on this summer vacation! Thanks, kids being so old and not requiring my attention all the time. So, the Greyhawk weather forecaster has been updated from 1.3.0 -> 1.5.0.

  • This time Mountain elevations can be defined by the user, from the years old default of 3000 feet. This was actual request by a user!
  • The missing sea and seacoast warm/cold current distinction to the forecast is no longer overlooked.
  • Showing the latitude map of Flanaess got uplifted into this century.
  • Relocated the Average temperature column between high and low columns.
  • Changed Heavy Fog -> Thick Fog, and Light Fog -> Thin Fog, being more descriptive.

Weather Forecasting with descriptive temperatures

Updated the Greyhawk weather forecaster (1.2.0 -> 1.3.0) to use descriptive temperature ranges to ease gamemasters  description of the weather, and to have some quick clue of the effects it might have. The descriptive temperatures are based on ranges found on Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 Rules Compendium, and from where the compilation of effects (rules wise) can be checked if D&D 3.5 d20 rules are used.

Also, there is a new temperature column option named ‘Average’ to be shown in the forecast. It is ment to those who does not like knowing low and high temperatures, or to those who want to know the average temperature of low and high temperatures without calculating it.
