For example, Jack O would be:


Necrita Monstra <random undead (I need names for all sections in pointy brackets)> jacko


Questions, tips and criticisms are welcome.

OK, and what is the purpose of this?
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

I don't remember. It doesn't actually ever have to be shown to players. it's more so that... um...

I'm positive there was a reason when I started, but for the life of me I don't remember what.
