Eska: “The Drow Problem” Solved! Dathomirians

For those of you that don't know, the drow of D&D have at times had an image problem. I'll leave others to define it: The Problem With Drow by Jared Rascher Race: The Original Sin of the Fantasy Genre by Paul B. Sturtevant This has never been a issue at any of my tables.

Quite a long time since my last post.  A dead computer, and some writer's block were the main culprits.  The change from summer to fall brought plenty of outdoor chores around the house to distract me as well.  Also, I think I overwhelmed myself into blogs, message boards and the like and just needed to… Continue reading Hobgoblins of Eska (Nuin’ohtar or Muukuukek)

Surface Dwarves of Eska (Sabrak)

Dwarf Berserkerby mattforsyth   The dwarves of Eska came a bit easier this time around.  I felt like the elves were a bit of a roadblock, being as they are a "keystone" on Eska.  The dwarves also had a chance to percolate a bit more in my head and finally come together. Since I've been trying… Continue reading Surface Dwarves of Eska (Sabrak)
