After fighting past Nazi guards and roided-out Frankenstein […]

I missed RPGaDAY yesterday! I feel so ashamed. So, so ashamed. So! Yesterday’s question was what RPG I’ll be playing in 20 years’ time. Based on my current experience, I’ll likely be still playing both D&D and Star Wars. With Star Wars being my first game, and D&D being the one my wife and I […]

Wallowing in self-pity, I’ve been forlornly watching Twitter roll on by with everyone’s tweets and photos from GenCon. With that in mind, let’s talk favorite convention game, courtesy of #RPGaDAY!
