Welcome to the Nest of Candles blog. I am creating this so I can use the Internet for the duty of explaining my world to new players.

Important links for players:

Game Sessions Calendar (updated link): Nest of Candles Calendar

We play approximately 3 sessions a month, usually on Saturday evenings (PST).

RPTools Maptool: http://rptools.net/doku.php?id=downloads
Make sure to download Version 1.2 of Maptool. Our game sessions are conducted using Maptool.

PCGen: http://pcgen.sourceforge.net/

A character creator. This is the preferred way to make a PC, as it interoperates well with Vellum (the name of the bot), it has a lot of features, and it's free.

Vellum: http://vellum.berlios.de/

A Paper & Pencil RPG client/server. The implementation will allow GMs to use maps and miniatures, coupled with an IRC bot for role-playing and tracking the combat actions with our rich character model. Emphasis is on ease-of-use, fun and robustness. Eventually you will need to download the client to play with us. For now, you only need Maptool.
And, if you're curious about my maps and want to make your own:
