This week’s blog is a character profile – for a cat. I used Shadows Pouncing, and his mentor Stub Tail, as familiars and companions for my Sonora game. However, they are characters in their own rights. I based the concept, very loosely, on a book called Tailchaser’s Song, by Tad Williams (which I just learned is in production for a 2018 movie release. Huzzah!) I highly recommend the book.
It’s nice to do different things, sometimes. If you wanted to run an all-animal game in Sonora, you could. Cats, dogs, raccoons, coyotes – emerging sentience, burgeoning societies, old enmities. What could be better?
May you catch enough prey to keep you from hunger, but not so much that you become lazy. And may you never lose your tail in a dog fight.
