This Is About a Game Called “Undertale.”

Here I am. Back from the land of the dead. How long has it been since I wrote something here? A year? Probably more. I ask myself why I am here. I don’t really know. I mean I DO know, but I uhh . . .

Look.

I will talk shortly about a game. A game I’ve just recently finished. There are no plot or story spoilers here but there are some out-of-context images that are visual spoilers; it would hurt me physically to spoil this game.

D&D Session 7: Onward and Downward

Yes, I know this is horrendously late. I have a ton of excuses, but my Bluff skill isn’t high enough to get by with them. Just read on and hopefully the feelings of resentment and disappointment will melt away . . .

Azai sat perfectly balanced on the ship’s railing as he meditated on the previous day’s events.

Yesterday morning, Alycstair had recovered enough from his wounds to explain his unique form to the group. “Explain” is an exaggeration: Alycstair didn’t know what he was, but the half-serpentine body was his true and preferred form. Azai and Rapha continued to trust their companion, but Lo-Kag grew more suspicious. Regardless, the party had to continue their mission to find the Tablets of Fate.
