Huh. Could be.

Maybe it's a French or Creole term, corrupted into English?

A tiny bit on mechanics:

Just a tiny bit of mechanics: Instead of rolling for ability scores, ability scores are purchased with 42 "discretionary character points," or DCP. 1 DCP raises an ability score by 2 points. Leftover DCP can be used to purchase special abilities or a more expensive race. For example, a character cou...

How Magic Works

The Four Magi As there are four elements, there are also four kinds of magi. The four elements are Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. However, if one looks at the symbol of the Church of Gaia, there is a fifth element, but its Magi always disappear around the age of sixteen, after first manifesting their ...

It was few years back I sent a cover letter and proposal to a few places, but none of them wanted to take a chance on a new setting, especially one that was this different from the norm. Now, I've been thinking abut doing it again. I was thinking Magnum Opus, but to tell you the truth, I'm worried a...

The races of Aesca Humans - Humans are just as they are anywhere else. Adaptable, intelligent, and somewhat arrogant. They have two arms, two legs, and vary in color depending upon where they are from. Humans on Aesca come from Lafié, West Arna, East Arna, Arcadia, or the Nazro Desert. Male pop: 48%...

Yes, it is - they also get coverage once a month in Dragon. I think it's being intentionally left generic for DMs to sprinkle their own stuff in. Every book that's come out so far and has no campaign specified is a Greyhawk book, essentially. All the splat books and so on detail all kinds of organiz...

Yay! Happy! But.....

I'm halfway through with my novel - and that's good reason for me to be excited, since I've been told it's good by a couple of already published authors, and one of them isn't even a fantasy writer. The neat part about being halfway through is that I now know where it's trying to go completely. Howe...

Either I'll see you there or I won't. I'm only there for Friday and Saturday, really. Budget constraints say otherwise, it's almost not possible for me to be there at all this year.

Next year, though, hopefully I will have this stupid novel done, so I can get paid.

Yeah. Gotta have bacon. In the case of my setting, it's just fried strips of meat. Another thing - there's no dogs, either. In fact, very few mammals of any kind. I've had to be very careful when mentioning mammals at all. So far, the only one's I've mentioned are cats and monkeys, but the cat refer...

Oh, no. That's great! The questions were kind of stupid, anyway. I was just writing the other day, and got to thinking those things. I'd thought about the meat while I was writing. There's no such thing as bacon, in such a case. I think it may be a strange sort of "in-between" meat. The steg questio...

Odd things about dinosaurs....

I got to thinking the other day...about questions that kept plaguing me about the little things.... For example, do dinosaurs have red meat, or are they like birds? Or is it something in between? How far would a dinosaur (a predator) chase someone? Are they really all that tougher than normal animal...

I've been working very hard on machines lately, so I've put out some ideas for the "Seraphim" mecha series from my writing. The tail fin opens up and the wings unfold into giant feathery-looking flapping wings. The idea seems sound to me, I just can't draw it any better. http://www.nazro.net/gallery...
