My latest adventure is participating in my first ever RPG. I was invited to participate by Bard who runs a couple of great blogs, The Clash of Spear on Shield and Two Up, One Back. The name of the game is 'The West Kingdom: A Swords and Wizardry PbB Campaign' using the Swords and Wizardry White Box rules.
Bard has set up a blog devoted to running the game which you can find here 'The West Kingdom'. On the main page of the blog you can follow along as the game progresses. For more information on the campaign setting including maps and a new arrivals guide you can go to the 'The West Kingdom' introduction page.
To help Bard and the four players with record keeping for our own characters we have all set up blog pages for our character that we can go in and edit as the game progresses. If notice I have created a new page on my blog with a link under the heading 'The West Kingdom' PbB RPG which is hosting my character sheet.
So without further ado I would like to introduce to you Duran Halmar. Born in the small town of Ashwood east of Fairfield, Duran is known in his town for having won the local archery contest every year since the age of 14.
The following is a quote from Bard's site in which he lays out the world that Duran is living.
The West Kingdom, ruled by Berenger II, is a vast land, difficult to control. Its isolated towns are bastions of relative peace and order. The King's soldiers patrol the roads as best they can. But the woods, hills, ruins and caves remain untamed. From these regions, the minions of chaos come forth to menace the folk of Berenger's realm. With resources stretched, the King's men are fortunate to simply hold the settlements and byways. Only small companies of roving adventurers press the attack into the dark places where the enemies of the Kingdom abide. Fairbrook is where the story begins for one such band.
