Yes, you read that right - a new version of TableSmith has been released! I realize it's long overdue, and it's not a huge release, but it is something (and finally addresses the folder access problem that's plagued 5.1 since Windows Vista was released).
There are some new features, but this is primarily a technical update to address two things. First, the standard installation puts the program and other "read-only" files into the "Program Files" folder of Windows, while the tables, config file, and other mutable files go into a TableSmith folder in the user's Documents folder. This is the expected installation that Microsoft encourages, and fixes the issue where everything was installed into "Program Files", which then created issues when TableSmith tried to save it's configuration information. "Back in the day" (i.e.; Windows XP and earlier), you could do that, but Vista and later didn't allow for that.
While there is an
"About" page on this blog (link over to the right), I figured I'd

Currently, the old
website is gone (even after I spent a bunch of time revising it…sigh), and this
blog is the Internet home for Mythosa, TableSmith, my iOS apps, and whatever
other projects I may be working on. I got rid of the old site for a couple reasons.
First, I realized that "fantasy campaign setting" sites really aren't
a thing any longer. Most of them are gone, and the handful that remain haven't
been updated in years (some have been sitting idle for over a decade). Farland is still going, but it's an exception (and has
always been at a higher level of quality than most every other world site, mine
included). Other than that, most people have moved their content to blogs
rather than static HTML sites.
Now, just conforming
to the current fashion isn't a reason to m…
The Nine Infernal Kingdoms are regions of the plane of Maledicium where powerful archdevils have established their domains, pockets of stability and order surrounded by demon-infested chaos. Brief descriptions of these "kings of Hell" and their dominions are listed below (in order of relative power, weakest to strongest).
Note: Each archdevil is listed with aliases as it is ill-advised to say their names aloud, outside the context of a ritual or invocation. To do so is said to invite misfortune upon oneself.

Ilsidris, King of AvernusThe Hawk, the Whisperer
Ilsidris is the ruler of Avernus, and is the third ruler of this kingdom in recent history. He has the form of a human male with a hawk's head, bird wings, and taloned feet. Ilsidris speaks in a sinister whisper, causing feelings of dread and uneasiness to those who hear his voice. The avian archdevil is the weakest of the infernal kings, but he is able to ally and manipulate the others in such a way as to ke…
