April 30, 2010 4 Comments

That’s right, in less than a month, I’ll be packing up Bridget and Gabe and heading to the windy midwest. I’ll be working as webmaster for the Reserve Component Command there. And I’ll be needing a gaming group. Bridget and I realize we’ll probably be spending our first few months playing Descent with one another […]

Big applause for Wizards, who have released, for free, a version of D&D for kids entitled Monster Slayers: The Heroes of Hesiod. Apparently, it’s based on a new book D&D is coming out with.

Right now I’ve got a ton of different projects on my plate which are in different phases of incompletion, as well as a couple of campaigns I’ve tried to start up and failed. First off, at the top of my to do list, is Conflict, a 3.5/Pathfinder RPG designed for PVP combat specifically. I was […]

Trust me on this.""][/caption] On a recent episode of Fear the Boot, the hosts discussed “lying to your players”. You’ll note I put that in quotes.
