There is a place…

Where no one knows

The heart felt breath…

The deepest woes

Alone in peace…

Blue sky above

Here we rest…

Here we love

My First 6 Months Of Being A Professional Dungeon Master

Posted in D & D, DORAGON Adventures, Dungeons And Dragons, Professional Dungeon Master, Writing with tags on July 3, 2022 by darkjade68

My Professional Dungeon Master Beginnings

Doragon Kishu (Dragon Rider & Paladin)

In the last week of December, I decided to give Professional Dungeon Mastering a try

I’ve been Playing/Dungeon Mastering Dungeons & Dragons on and off for 35+ years, it’s one of my greatest joys

Being I’ve always Homebrewed (Created my own material), as opposed to using official or 3rd party books & material, I decided I would start by using a 5e (D & D 5th Edition) Module I wrote and published two years prior (2019)

That way I’d be super familiar with the material I was running

Generally I ran ‘Theater of the Mind’ when I DM’d (Dungeon Mastered) campaigns, but because it was Professional Dungeon Mastering, and people were paying me, I decided to also include Roll 20 so that I could include maps etc.

I started with a Thursday game, then a Friday game, but soon combined the two to make one Friday Game

Emory, A Warlock Born (Part II) Nothing’d Be The Same

Part II Of Emory, A Warlock Born

Doragon Kishu (Dragon Rider & Paladin)

Emory, A Warlock Born

by Doragon

Part I

Part II – Nothing’d Be The Same

My father is a terrifying being…

…though I’ve seen him a thousand times, when he came into my room the next instance, holding the black book I’d opened, it sent dread through me like a shot

In that same instance my glowing runes that floated above me dropped upon my chest… he did not see

‘EMORY!! DID YOU TOUCH THIS BOOK?!’ he spoke sending tremors straight through me and the walls that surrounded me

My mind slowed…

…what would I say?

How could I lie… he’d know

‘Yes father,’ I replied, knowing this could be the end for me… Destroyed and forgotten

He calmed, then step forward, and kneeled before my bed… I’d never seen anything like this from before

‘Son… You must be careful with the books in my library… They’re…’ he stood

A New Tale

Doragon Kishu (Dragon Rider & Paladin)

Emory – A Warlock Born

Emory – A Warlock Born

by Doragon

Part 1

Emory was a small child, in a dangerous place…

A half Demon, pitch black of skin, eyes of glowing blue, he’d sit cross legged on the floor of his father’s library, studying his Runes

His father never really spoke to Emory, they’d sit across from one another at dinner…

…his Father all the way at the end of a long, fancy table…

…whilst Emory sat at the opposite, always with his Runes, with an occasional glance at his Father’s end of the table

But they never met eyes

Emory never met his mother…

…truth be known, he’s not even sure what Race she was… Human… Elf… He couldn’t be sure, and his Father surely never spoke of her

It was a Demon life… in a Demon place… his home was almost the size…

The open sea of thought

It’s a miracle we’ve made it here alive…

Sometimes I wonder

Wonder and get lost…

In all the things that are possible

But often seem their not…

‘Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

Oh, I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain

I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end‘ – James Taylor

How I long for the morning sounds

As frost and leaves lay upon the ground

It seems impossible this bliss and confusion will ever end…

Savor every moment until the when

Come what may…

I am not alone

The Tranquil fog of my mind…

The deepest, purest love

Captain Fire 197 – Full Circle

Posted in Blog Series, Captain Fire 197, Science Fiction, Writing on April 15, 2022 by darkjade68

Wrote this 10 years ago today, back when I was doing ‘Blog Series’… ‘The Written Word’ was created as a place for me to write, like a writing journal, nothing within it is edited, just a free consciousness of stories etc… ‘Captain Fire 197’ was one of my first Blog Series, really need to go back and read it some time

The Written Word



Jenna sits inside the Druggy Abandoned Building, bodies of Drugies, or Henchmen of The Drug Lord Colonel Otquai‘s Number One Man, “Rain”, either dead, or knocked unconscious…

Outside The Toodlock Thire Police are still holding their position, and not entering the building.

Nisho suddenly appears, and approaches Jenna…

Jenna senses Nisho.

“Get back Nisho! I can’t seem to control this…” Jenna says with her head hung low, never looking up at Nisho.

“Sure you can” Nisho confidently replies.

“NO!! NISHO!! GET OUT!!! I DON’T WANT TO HURT YOU, BUT I WILL!!!” Jenna suddenly floats into the air, and gazes at Nisho as she yells.

Her eyes full of Rage.

Nisho steps even closer, she’s maybe 15 feet from Jenna now.

“You couldn’t always control your Telepathy right? This is no different Jenna…” Nisho pleas.

“This…” Jenna starts to cry as she lowers back…

Like red beams of light, it enters the black surface

Veins of truth, of pain, of night

I am not with you…


I’ve never been

And yet…

Our love is real

Our lives entwined…

I love you more than you could ever know

Your light, your love, friendship and more

But I am alone…

I’ve always been

I stay… I go

Dark and deep…

Still, complete

I wait for that thing…

That confirmation, that need

I wait too long…

The wings, they grow

And I am above surface again…

Take to the sky




Monsters Of The Wilderness – In Review

Posted in Book Review, Dungeons And Dragons, Product Review, Writing on April 6, 2022 by darkjade68

Doragon Kishu (Dragon Rider & Paladin)

Wow, what an amazing book… The Themes right off the bat, this isn’t just a list of monsters, this is a serious Dungeon Master Tool

I love the Ocean Section

And the Art by Travis Hanson once again, such a great feel

The Arctic Section is also awesome, will definitely be using some of these guys

The Desert Region

Jungle/Swamp Region, this book is awesome

Been looking forward to the Forest Region

And the Mountain Region

Cawood does not disappoint, so much work goes into these books

There’s also Wilderness Events Tables, and a couple Subclasses in the back (Druid & Ranger)

This book is loaded with stuff for the Dungeon Master

Andrew & his Crew have done it again
