Thelana 5e

Have you ever wanted to play Thelana in D&D? Well NOW you can! As long as you've got an open minded DM and a gaming group willing to accept an Ilmarin into the campaign, refer to the stat block below, which approximates Thelana's abilities in Hedonia, when she first climbed into the Temple of Sargonus...

Who is Kalima?

Who is Kalima and how does she relate to the Aenya Series? Well, she started out as my wife's D&D character, a grumpy but endearing female dwarf, and is now being featured in my daughter's YouTube animated series, 2D&D.

Aenya D&D and YouTube

Art by Jasmine Alimonos Hey everyone! So it's been dawning on me that blogging is going the way of disco. Nobody wants to read blogs anymore, unless you're uniquely dedicated to some super-niche interest (you know who you are). Thing is, my stories speak to a broad audience.

If I could not write books, I would make screenplays for TV or movies. Barring that, I could settle for a good campfire. Story gives life meaning. It... Continue Reading →

5E D&D Race: Ilmar

The ILMAR are a primitive human culture native to Aenya distinguished by their absence of clothing. Due to their rejection of social norms and prehistoric ways of living, the civilized peoples of Aenya consider them a lesser race. They are called savages, wild humans, feral children, or barbarians (despite their class). Ilmar are shunned where... Continue Reading →

Aenya News Update: 11/29/16

A few months ago, I put out a request for artists for the upcoming 2017 edition of Ages of Aenya. After a bit of vetting, by which we produced the Avian and Horde (below), I settled on the talented Zhengyi Yu.
