I've mentioned previously that I had a plan for a saurial-focused D&D campaign encompassing planar travel and spelljamming. I even started a write-up for it before I got busier writing stuff I could actually publish for money.But what with the pandemic and everything, I didn't ever get around to actually building it into a game … Continue reading Notes from a shelved D&D campaign
Ah, Sigil, the centre of the Multiverse, or so the locals would have you think! What can one say that hasn't already filled multiple treatises?

Mind your head there sirrah, you have to really duck under that arch. I promise that's the last of them, and the smell of whatever-that-was back there will probably wash out.Now, Undersigil. There's plenty of 'under' to a city this big, and everything below the streets is technically Undersigil. I've brought you to this bit, … Continue reading Tout’s Guide to Undersigil
Well sirrah, didn't I tell you? Best rat on a stick in the city! Crunchy bones and they even leave all the fur on!Now, most folk think of this place as part of the Market Ward, and there's plenty of overlap, but plenty of little differences too. First of all, there's hardly any decent flophouses … Continue reading Tout’s Guide to Sigil – Guildhall Ward
Well, sirrah, I think we gave those chancers the laugh. Very well handled, I must say. Well noticed to jump those tripwires in Tenfoots.Where are we now? L... Land... of... Green... Gin... Ginger?

OK sirrah, we'll try not to stay here long. Mostly because we might both get killed, and then you won't pay me my jink!This is the Hive. It's not pretty, not clean, not nice. This is what you might think of as the slums of Sigil, though you won't find any nobles here slumming it … Continue reading Tout’s Guide to Sigil – the Hive
Right, sirrah, here we go. The Lower Ward. This place is packed with portals that dump you in the Lower Planes, hence the name. I suppose if there were a few more to the Plane of Fire, this'd be the Fire Ward, or the Efreeti Ward, or something stupid like that.All the other wards have … Continue reading Tout’s Guide to Sigil – Lower Ward
Wotcha sirrah. Still want that tour then?OK, we'll start with and easy one. Let's go shopping. You've been here a little while I take it?

I took a bit of a break from the blog there. Between moving to a new larger house and the birth of my son, I thought I'd take a time out. Here's what's going on with Loge for the last few sessions of the game. The party rests and comes back to the townhouse. Brambles … Continue reading Loge still stuck in that bloody house!
OK, so fighting Spined Devils and Bearded Devils was not fun.Then the Spiked Devils appeared to make the fight a bit harder! After a pretty serious back and forth, we managed to start falling back, eventually hiding behind a wall of fog thrown up by the Dwarven Cleric. With Mr Easy's help, we managed to … Continue reading Loge runs away
I finally found a game of Planescape. And, quite honestly, it is awesome! Now, I might still just be a clueless berk when it comes to Sigil and the Outlands, but I'm hoping to bash my way through some portals and become a real cutter. Yay, Sigilian slang! So, I'm playing a genasi called … Continue reading Finally playing Planescape
