About the blog
This blog started as a roleplaying campaign journal, but is today the platform for two fantasy novels.
The Journal of a Ranger recounts the journey of a group of characters adventuring in the land of Varisia. In other words, this is a campaign journal for a particular Pathfinder roleplaying game, written from the point of view of one of the player characters. The campaign is no other than Rise of the Runelords. The game started in January 2014 and finished in June 2015. It was played using the excellent online platform Roll20.net.
Characters in the game were:
- Alice, a human mage
- Harsk, a dwarven cleric
- Alpharius, a half-elf spell-less ranger
- Alfred, a human fighter
- Saffron, a human witch
The author played Cael Greymarsh, also known as Alpharius, character with the Spell-less Ranger alternate base class. Each journal chapter, excluding the 1st that serves as the introduction of Alpharius himself and the 28th & 34th, describes roughly a single gaming session and its events.
However after finishing the journal, the author decided to write an independent continuation novel, called Vengeance: Road to Damnation, that continues the story of the protagonists. The novel is published as weekly posts in this blog, starting in Autumn of 2017.
