  • Almos Story: Hal’la
    Vrana was wroth. “Where is he?” She hissed. Then, after a moment, she focused on her breathing. As General Queen, it was beneath her to lose herself to such anger and passions. The fate of an entire nation rested squarely on her shoulders. At the moment though, due to actions taken by Vren and his… Read More »Almos Story: Hal’la
  • Almos Story: Woval
    The bear sniffed at the air and took a moment to distinguish the cacophony of scents present. There was the smell of the wood: pine, oak, mold, fungus, and moldering earth. Rich smells, deep and strong, signs of a healthy forest. But there were other scents as well, the faint musk of male deer and… Read More »Almos Story: Woval
  • Almos Story: Fralam
    The central fire was easily the largest. The other campfires were like a smattering of stars surrounding a great sun which outshined them a hundred times over.

  • Almos Story: Deadwind Pass
    Raucha felt a chill pass through his bones. The grizzled veteran was used to the thinner air and colder temperatures up in Deadwind Pass. What he felt was more a sense of foreboding, one that he wasn’t used to feeling, even in this place. Deadwind Pass was the intersection point for three of the five… Read More »Almos Story: Deadwind Pass
  • Almos: Territory Cycle #1
    Territories are a big part of the Almos set that I’m designing. In addition to providing functionality on their own, they will be involved in a win condition card and a loss condition card.
