Dead Man Walking

It has been a long time; in fact I can’t even remember the last time I wrote an article. Recently DM Vince contacted me and asked if I would be interested in starting my column back up.

Ecology of the Mantari

Ecology of the Mantari  “Are you sure this thing is down here old man.”  Leanore asked as she stepped over the large rock on the tunnel floor. “Yes, Yes, I’m sure.  My student saw it with his own eyes, when it killed his torch bearer.”  Rezamat replied. “Then where is it?  We’ve been in these
