Six Word Saturday

Gonna throw me some dice today


Slowly I’m starting to feel a bit better. Good news! And there’s no better way to celebrate that, than to play a bit of D&D. This is not my regular group – we will be gathering in February – but a new group. I’m going to play with my eldest son Nick and his friends. Such fun to be a geek mom! 😉

More Dungeons. And Dragons.

While the first spring shower is washing my windows clean – well, at least wet – I finally have an evening to myself. For due to that same rain, the weekly stroll with my two canine buddies was cancelled. One of the ladies is terrified of thunderstorms, so we didn’t dare take the risk. Plus I didn’t want to be sizzled by a stray lightning bolt. The effects are devastating, as you can read in Hallway of Horror.

You see, your DuTchess may have been silent on Figments last week, but I have not been idle! There was another Dungeons and Dragons weekend coming up and I wrote six posts on my site Dungeon Dutchess. The adventures are only a click away…

The Principles


One, two… Principle missing!


What happened this weekend, you ask? I’m afraid that will have to wait until next time. But it was very, very exciting. I had to pass an important test in game and was kind of nervous. But while my dice rolling hands were shaking a bit in this world, in Faerûn my faith never wavered. Don’t worry if this all is abracadabra to you. D&D is hard to explain. I guess you just have to play it.  😉

The Adventure Continues

Though quiet here on Figments, I have been working hard on my Dungeons & Dragons blog, Dungeon Dutchess – apart from my daytime job of course. Pfew.

No less than six posts about our latest weekend back in December. And tomorrow starts the long awaited next episode of our Underdark mission… quest.. thing. 😉

For the true believers:

  1. Ambush
  2. About an unconscious Drow and fighting quaggoths
  3. Against all odds
  4. Good tidings
  5. Trouble in the Ghetto of the Dead
  6. The Black Chalice

The dark elves and other creatures of the Underdark await you… if you dare.

By the time you read this, I will be heading up north towards my friends for another marvelous Dungeons & Dragons weekend. And if you listen carefully, you will hear me singing from the top of my lungs. Perhaps you’d better not. 😉

  1. Deeper Down
  2. With its feet in the air
  3. And they keep on coming
  4. Vertical fight

Enjoy. For we will! 😀

About Evil Dwarves and Delvers

YES, I made it in time before our next session. In one week the Dungeons & Dragons madness will continue. If you want to follow us on our adventures, you are more than welcome to travel along. There are five episodes in the last session:

  1. Road to Dunspeirrin
  2. Spider Silk
  3. Even more spiders
  4. Dunspeirrin
  5. The Delver

It is hard to find fitting images, so I created one myself

And those two round things are spiders! Yes, they are! See, eight legs 😉

I hope you will have fun reading about our crazy actions in the land of the Underdark.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

Are you ready for another multi-photo challenge?, Sara Rosso asks. I bet you are :) This time I made it easy for you, with a color. Green. For some of you, in the northern hemisphere, you may not be seeing green for a while. Let’s celebrate all things green!

Share (many) pictures in a gallery which mean GREEN to you! 

Faced with this challenge, I started to smile, then grin. I mean, what could be better for someone who is nicknamed The Green Sorceress, or Greeny in short. In my RPG’s I always play a Ranger or Druid. Because I love nature, animals and green. In Dungeons & Dragons I drive the guys to madness because of my choice of companions. Green ones, wolves, horses.

Would you like to see my green choices? A photo of a special plant, called the Ginkgo Biloba, a living fossil, as a unique species recognizable similar to fossils dating back 270 million years. Or simple yet graceful grass? My sweet little green Kaatje, whom I had to say goodbye to last week? Or how about a green waterbed? The Green with a capital G?

Simply click a photo to start the slideshow.
