The Blackmoor Blog

Post by Havard » Mon Oct 05, 2009 10:14 pm

Hi guys,
I set up a Blackmoor blog over here:
http://blackmoormystara.blogspot.com/

I figure it might be a good place to collect some of my more spontaneous thoughts.

Cool Havard! This is going to be a nice way for me to get to know the world of Blackmoor a little better.

I have a blog on ENWorld and I don't seem to have any followers there. So 50 is impressive.

Looking again, I guess that would be the Show (Big Mac's) Friends link (where I have four friends).

Interesting post, Havard (and really cool picture!). It has me poring over my copy of DA1 to refresh my memory of the whole Uther's kidnapping plot and the Cabal's part in the events.

Hope to have some time to put more thoughts together later in the week

We have quite a bit between DA3 City of the Gods and Oerth Journal #6 I should think...
