- Did a rust monster snack on your holy symbol?
Did your latest party member turn out to be a blood sucking fiend?
Maybe that Wild Surge table turned your Fireball into a half-eaten sandwich.
Sometime when life (or unlife) throws us a curve, profanity is our only means of
So to help the verbally changed adventurer, our resident Jveltoan priestess
conjured up this little incantation to help you swear with the best of them.

- Please accept our apology for the extended web site outage. Verizon blocked all
web servers on their ADSL network in an attempt to block the spread of the Code Red
worm and our server was on their ADSL network. Please click Here if you care to read their notice about the "filter" which they placed
on their network. We no longer are using Verizon, but the new connection and new server
we have switched to should provide a noticiable improvement in speed.
- The Kingdom of Hurva is proud to unveil a new feature. Our Fantasy Book
Review section will provide a place for us to not smply review books for their
readability, but for how they inspire both DMs & players with role-playing ideas.
The first three reviews are all series. "The Deed of Paksenarrion", "Necroscope" and
the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter books.

- There are ten new clergy NPC personalities listed in the Clergy of Note section.
Four Chosen of Wajen and six Soltanities have been added to the noted clergy
of Istur. Also, I relocated this entire section from the Almanac
to the Peoples of Hurva under the Kingdom section. This seemed to be a more logical place for
it within the site's format and cleans out the Almanac so that I can start
adding geographic information there, as was my original intent.

attracted to the shy navigator.

Is your campaign still alive? Do you still game? Will you ever update your
site again? Will you upgrade your site to 3e rules?
I've received a number of emails over the last year or so that shared these
common questions. Now is the time to answer them.
Yes, the campaign is still alive. As is another campaign that my group has
chosen not to chronicle or include on-line. Believe me, keeping up with the
standards we set for ourselves makes keeping just one campaign on-line a demanding
Anywho, over the past year, I've gotten married and moved. This plus some
work projects unfortunately left little to no time for gaming. Also, we've been
going back and forth over making the switch to 3e. The finishing of the 'Gates
of Firestorm Peak' adventure coupled with the hiatus of the last several months
seemed to make it a natural time to switch. Despite my group's overall love
of 3e, it became clear that it would be more difficult than we originally believed
to make the switch, due to the large number of our house rules that are problematic
with certain changes made in 3e. (Such as the fact that all of the Hurvan clerics
would either be new classes or prestige classes under 3e rules) We have had
our first several gaming sessions (maintaining 2nd ed./Player's Options) this
year, and I think we'll be getting back to our normal once every 2-3 weeks sessions
that have been going on for at least six years now. There are now updates to
all three campaign journals. Slowly, but steadily, we're working on a conversion
to 3e. When that will be complete, I honestly don't know. The new house rules
section for that will be quite extensive I fear, especially regarding spellcasters
and converting the myriad NWPs which we love to skills & feats. I will not
post the new 3e house rules till I feel they are at least somewhat complete
Thank you all for your concern that we might have gone away. You are too kind.

- Lots of new journal entries. Literally hundreds of pages for your reading
enjoyment! Four new Ester Send
Letter, Four new Jven
Letters here as well as at least six of the latest entries in Nikita's Journal since last I've updated this page. This wave
of writing chronicles the dramatic conclusion to the Gates of Firestorm Peak
and how the characters discovered that the vessel that rescued them from a
plague ridden city was really a Ship of Horrors.
- For use during the recovery operations in the Ship of Horror module, I summarized
and streamlined underwater
adventuring rules from a variety of sources.
- A new dessert to indulge in! Endurance Rum Cake. Our group really enjoyed this alcohol-laced
dessert at the same time our characters were receiving their rum rations while
adventuring on the high seas.
- If you haven't noticed them already, be sure to check out the more realistic
looking wax seals on our home
page and on the Kingdom intro
