I am not new to rolz, but I may not be known to the most of you.
This is my attempt at summing up my fantasy aesthetics.
I tell darker stories of worlds of sword & sorcery and realistic medieval fantasy (dark ages, gothic, pagan, etc.), mostly inspired by my own nostalgia about places, people, and events of my past, forever lost...
My purest games entirely under my own aesthetics are very atmospheric with Pagan, Gothic, and Folk influences.
I am also partly inspired by books (Such as "The Hobbit", "The Lord of the Rings", "The Silmarillion", etc.) old fantasy movies ("Dark Crystal", "Willow", "Conan the Barbarian", etc), and role-playing games from my childhood.
If you like stories of greater meaning, worth, and struggle, then we both have something in common. In my purest games, it is all about the heroes journey in my eyes and preferably in the eyes of my players. They are taken seriously. They are always idiosyncratic. When I tell stories, my wish is to entrance and guide my players through mystical journeys to worlds unlike ours of stranger times. Journeys so memorable to the soul that it burns hot in the heart forever, only to be forgotten as stories of the past but kept in the most sacred of places: in the hearts and passed on tales of us mortals.
The greatest themes you will notice from me are of individual struggle, mysticism, and horror.
I joined, what now?
I have also joined, for your description of your tales has brought hope and tears to this old adventurer's eyes.
Thank you. :)
If you're still there, I can be interested in join your stories.
I am. Still doing a little of this nowadays. I also began a D&D 5E Basic Rules Discord server with a classic generic medieval fantasy theme. Let me know if you're interested.
