Grand Vizier Bartholomew Morraine [The Day After Ragnarok]

Grand Vizier Bartholomew Morraine

[The Day After Ragnarok]

 

Bartholomew Morraine is the very model of a classic grand vizier: he is tall, saturnine, sports a goatee, wears silken robes whenever he can get away with it, and never goes anywhere without his blackwood staff.  He is currently more or less in charge of whatever North American petty-kingdom the players next encounter, and it is widely (and accurately) whispered that Morraine is a sorcerer of no little skill. Certainly he has no trouble with binding others to Morraine’s service, and probably his will as well.  Ah… the King’s (or Premier’s, or President’s, or Mayor’s) service, of course.  There’s always a figurehead in place, while Morraine rules from the shadows. He prefers it that way.

Looks like more eruptions in Hawaii are likely.

I think that I went to Kilauea.

Officials warned residents and airplanes to stay away from part of Hawaii’s Big Island after a plume of ash from the Kilauea volcano rose 12,000 feet into the air… The US Geological Survey issued a red alert Tuesday, which means a major eruption is imminent or underway and ash could affect air traffic. The USGS’ Michelle Coombs described the situation as ” very hazardous for aviation” and said her team isn’t quite sure what caused Tuesday’s slightly more intense ash emissions.

I don’t quite remember, and neither does my wife (which is kind of reassuring, because if my wife doesn’t remember it then it’s obscure). At any rate: this is a very real problem that Hawaii’s having right now, and I hope that everybody there will please stay safe. Which means no lava selfies. …Which I will admit is the sort of stupid [expletive deleted] that I might have done when younger, so I can’t be too cutting about this.

So, no Origins for me now.

I was planning to hit it this year as a reentry into the larger gaming con experience, but after this ridiculous Larry Correia dis-invitation nonsense I ain’t going.  Which is fine: it was going to be expensive, anyway… what? No, not the hotel and the registration or even the airfare. I was going to be at a gaming convention.  With a working credit card.  It was going to be a horrorshow, to the point where I might have had to decide on whether to jettison clothes to make room for purchases.

:spreads hands: But, hey, Origins: you do you. I’m sure that nobody wanted my money, anyway.

PS: I recognize that this is close to the Line.  Sorry.  But I ain’t no coward.

Seed: Spokuruna.

Spokuruna – Google Docs

Spokuruna

 

Spokuruna originates in Latvia, mostly by accident.  The country has been fought over several times over the last century or so, invariably by regimes nasty in word and deed, which means that there have been a lot of people killed suddenly, and with unfinished business.  As anybody familiar with spectral phenomena can tell you, that’s an excellent way to get ghosts. And that is exactly what has happened in Latvia, as it has happened throughout human history. It mostly doesn’t matter, as most ghosts can’t be seen by anybody who isn’t Sensitive in a particular way, anyway.
