Fonso Barsali

Fonso Barsali is my character on DWIMMERMARS. That's where +James Maliszewski's Dwimmermount meets ERB's Barsoom and it's run by +Adam Muszkiewicz

Fonso is a Greco-Roman wrestler of Roma origin, but also fugitive anarchist who joined a gypsy circus as a strongman to avoid being arrested. With the intinerant troupe he travelled all over Europe and reached Paris just in time for the 1889 Exposition Universelle.

Once there, he managed to be among the first people to ascend the Eiffel Tower. As the lift went up, and everyone on board admired the exposition, that covered the Champ de Mars, the Trocadéro, the quai d'Orsay, a part of the Seine and the Invalides esplanade, it accelerated with a flash to speeds never known before. The next thing was everyone waking up, naked, on the barren lands of Tellus.

Atacius Lightfoot

Atacius Lightfoot is my character in +Michael S Dark Ages campaign run on the Rizzoma platform. It's a revamp of an old campaign that Michael used to run over the now defunct Google Wave.

He's a littleling (halfling) thief from the Direlands that had to leave his homeland, because of a feud with another littleling who falsely accused him of a crime,  and traveled to the Southern port town of Skalfier in search of a new life. There he has found friends, adventures, wealth and, in the village of Appleton, a place he can call 'home'.

+Michael S commented on his blog: "Gabriel plays a curious, no-fear (sometimes) littleling (halfling) to the fullest, and when I tempt him with coins, I can feel that 'aw man, do I/don't I?'"

You can check the development of the game here.

One Page Dungeon Contest 2017

I have sent my submission for this year's One Page Dungeon Contest. It is called 'Crypt of the Lost Hymns' and it's inspired on the +Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad DCC game, set in the World of Ore. I want to thank the Metal Gods crew for the inspiration and +Jarrett Crader for the suggested edits.

“In the vast windswept plains North of Ur-Hadad, the First City of Men, a lonely barrow is the only landmark for many miles around.”
