WARNING: Author is biased!!!! I love this game. I love the GM’s. I love my character. I love the world. I love my rolling crew (. . . well . . . in that ‘I’m hugging you, but I’m hitting you’ kinda way). I love the NPC’s. I love the other PC’s. (even the ones my character hates . . . I’m so sorry!!!) *babble babble love fest here* So all attempts at unbiased reviewing have just been gleefully chucked out the window. I’msorryI’mnotsorry.
Ahem. I shall now attempt to control my excited hyperbole. Attempt.
All the info about Lione Rampant here! That handy link takes you to the website. That is where you get the rule book, find the forums, and get all the contact info for the awesome-sauce GM’s. Your first game is absolutely free, which is a great way to see the lay of the land. Also Lione is now accelerant, so it’s very easy to get right into playing.
This iteration of Lione just started last year. We’re on the third game of this season and it’s been a pretty brilliant one thus far. Here’s the setting blurb for this campaign:
In ages past, there were monsters, wizards, and champions of the gods. They were fairy tales in this era of industry, technology, and progress. We knew the difference between fantasy and science. But just five years ago, we discovered the myths held more truth than we realized. In the year 3909, the world became radically altered.The modern age ended as we knew it, and magic returned to the world. As technology failed and science gave way to mysticism, civilization was on the brink of collapse. The gods, once thought to be nothing but stories, have begun to speak once again and a sinister evil rises from the nightmares of the past.
The Day of Disjunction
As the high holy days of the Wylds and Faya occur, an ancient rite of spiritual bonding is revisited to fight a common foe. The new alliance with the lizardmen to the north has gained knowledge about the unholy places in the wilderness as well as the secrets of travelling the planes. The forces of Grumach, though, will not be idle, as their defeat at the hands of the people of Stoneheim has left a bitter taste in their undead mouths. And what of the bug-people, and their mysterious pylon that still rests in our field? And the Soulless? Has the defeat of the Toy Golem sent them scurrying away, or was he just the most recent in a litany of villainous monsters?

This weekend’s weather: (from The Weather Channel ) UPDATED!
- Friday is gong to be partly cloudy with highs near 79 and lows in the 50s.
- Saturday mostly sunny and gorgeous with temperature highs of 78 and lows of 58.
- Sunday has a chance of rain with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. Looks like a good weekend to bring some extra socks & light summer garb.
Please remember bug spray and sun screen. The mosquitos are like 747’s and the ticks are very very active. The chickens are doing their best, but there are only 5 of them! On the bird note, there are two mated pairs of swallows on site. One has nested in the front of the house (by the parking lot) and the other is nesting in the barn. Swallows are incredible bug eaters, so we’re glad to see them nesting here. BUT, a word of caution: The males have been swooping at people, trying to protect their nests. They haven’t actually hit anyone, but it’s a bit unnerving. Unless they actually become an issue we won’t move the nests, which would be stressful (and potentially harmful) for everyone involved.
That’s all for now! Can’t wait to see you all on Friday!!!
