Mounts in Frostgrave

Mounts in Frostgrave

August 10, 2015 No Comments

There aren’t any rules in Frostgrave for mounted combat, so I thought I’d write up some of my own. I think it should work pretty well. I’ve included a riding bear because I’ve found a fantastic Reaper mini which has a dwarf riding a bear. Why not? Mounts When a character mounts or dismounts a horse […]

Age of Rebellion: Campaign Prep

August 7, 2015 No Comments

I’m about to kick off a Star Wars campaign on Sunday nights, where I’ll be running an Age of Rebellion campaign, but allowing players to use Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion and Force and Destiny to create their characters. This will allow for a wide variety of characters, and a lot of different […]

Oh, man, I’m excited for this game. Let’s not bury the lede here. I’ve been hankering for a good skirmish wargame lately, and this game hits all those buttons. I grew up playing Mordheim pretty extensively, where you gather up a warband of cutthroats and criminals and toss them into a ruined city to battle […]

I’ve been watching Season 2 of True Detective (You’ll remember my love of True Detective from my posts of Rust Cohle as a Dungeon Master, as well as the two main characters in Fate Accelerated). While it’s not as good as Season 1, I’m still enjoying it. Earlier in the season, Officer Paul Woodrugh, played by Taylor […]

There’s a brand new Kickstarter out there, and its designer, William Meyer, was kind enough to send a copy of this new game to review. Don’t Be That Guy is a casual party game, in the style of Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity. It’s best played with a group of people you know […]

Hoot Hoot: Owls as a Playable Race in D&D

Yup, that’s what I said. Owls. When talking to Bridget about possible races she could play for our upcoming 5e Legend of Zelda campaign, I was trying to push for the Fairy race I came up with. She wasn’t having any of that. “What about an owl, like the owl in Ocarina of Time or […]

In planning for my next Wednesday campaign, following the death of Tiamat (which I will be sure to post all about), I began discussing new campaign ideas: Post-apocalyptic Tiamat Has Taken Over the World, Sci-Fantasy, etc. One that I mentioned, in passing was, “I’ve got this fantasy novel I’ve been working on and fiddling with […]
