The Voyage Begins

"Something hidden. Go and find it.
Go and look behind the Ranges —
Something lost behind the Ranges.
Lost and waiting for you. Go!"

— "The Explorer", Rudyard Kipling
 
Adventure, excitement and exploration. In my opinion these are among the major cornerstones of fantasy, horror and science fiction. In fact much of fiction has journeying into the unknown or the unraveling of mystery as a main focus. But fantasy and science fiction also deals with the acceptance, or at least acknowledgment, of the strange and weird.
 
For the most part I expect this to be a fantasy RPG blog, not exclusively old or new school by any means, just what I find interesting. I'll include some house rules, homebrew and attempts at world building too. That's not counting making and posting characters. In addition I'll discuss my D&D/fantasy RPG inspirations, ranging from books to TV shows, movies and video games.
 
With all this in mind I present to you A Voyage Into the Fantastic.
