Earth is old, but she loves her children, and she loves me. I’d hope you’d take care of your own mother when she’s infirm. Earth is my mother, and she is delicate, and so very tired; so, I take care of her, and I take care of all her children.
Sometimes I worry though, worry that I’m not a very good daughter. All of her other grown children, well, they’re off making carriers for themselves. I guess I was always the most stubborn. You know what I favorite thing about Earth is? Haha, there are so many things. But she welcomes newcommers, strangers, refugees – anyone in need of a home is welcome there as far as she is concerned. Anyone who lives there has her complete and unconditional love.
I think it may be time soon, she has lived long and full and I sense that final tiredness. It may be time to draw the curtain, and… to say goodbye. But I’m afraid… I’m terrified that we’re not ready for it yet. I fear for her children, for my children. Where will they go? Will they be ready? I’ve seen the Librarian, and I know that he would tell me, if I asked, but I’m afraid to. I’m too stubborn.
The end will be soon. I don’t know how soon. Please, my children – if the Earth should die tomorrow, if the world you know should come to an end, know that you are not alone. Don’t be afraid.
Black Earth is a Pathfinder campaign set in the very distant future. Earth is now the last home of the dragons, as well as homeland of elves, dwarves, demons, wizards and more. After the downfall of man at the end of Age of Steel there was a period of nigh eternal darkness, and when the world awoke, it was a new place of wonder, magic, and danger. The Age of Steel now forgotten, those technologies and discoveries now long lost secrets.
It starts in the year 1604, during the Age of Dragons. It doesn’t stay there long though. Since the story follows a group that mostly can’t stand each-other and they quickly team up with an eccentric time-traveler, the destination tends to be anywhere and everywhere; not that they agree on those locations, of course.
We are not currently looking for players, however if you’d like to join, you are welcomed to ask. We play online, Tuesday nights, 6pm-11pm US Eastern. Just send the GM a message, and we’ll talk.

Updated a lot of pages on here. We’re going to need to have a new day to play on in two weeks.
GM: March 30, 12
Slight alternation to last session. You guys are going to stay at the temple for three days until the shadows clear up. I suggest (mainly Stella), go ahead and do your shopping before next session, and hike the price of anything you buy by 10% (Orginal Price+(Original Price*0.1)). Everyone else, just get an idea of what you’re looking for so I know and such.
Also, as a reward for your help:
- Kyron, you can get your sword enchanted with Holy.
- Eddie gets some damn armor.
- Ares’s gun may be enchanted for +1 and he is given materials to make 10 holy bullets.
- Ava is given ten +1 holy arrows and ten +1 brilliant energy arrows.
- Stella gets the shaft because she wasn’t there. However, as a gesture of goodwill, Kaitlin offers to supply materials/buy/help make Stella a new Lyre. (OOC Recommendation: use the ruined blade Divine Artifact in it’s construction =P)

We’re updating to the newest build of MapTools. Here is the link to the version we will be using from now on. It should preserve your macros, but backup the old version just in case.
GM: Feb 11, 12
It’s official as of last week – we’ve been playing for one whole year now! Yay! Anyway, the time of this weeks game is changed from Tuesday to Monday, same time.

Looks like we’re here to stay. I’m still working on getting the wiki put together completely. I’ll still use dA for illustrations and uploading logs and stuff, but most of that will also be linked around here too.
Since it seems that epic amounts of combat are incoming (but who knows what will happen), and it will involve seven NPCs, plus a small army of monsters, I was wondering if you guys felt up to each controlling one of the NPCs during combat? Send message here or on dA with answer plzkthx.

Hey. For the moment I’m testing out the features offered here. I have a few Wiki pages set up, to give you guys an idea of how I’d have it work. We may or may not use the site, but it seemed pretty slick, so I thought we’d give it a try. So… look around, tell me what you think.
Oh, and I started writing a short story, like you asked, Beav.
