Richard Nixon wasn’t elected President the first time he ran. And he’s not the only President we’ve had that didn’t make it the first time around. That’s alright. “If at first you don’t succeed” and all that. That’s the attitude taken by the folks...

The goblins are up to something… I mean, they’re goblins, they tend to be up to something. So when Princess Irene saw that the magic thread that her great-grandmother had given her lead into the tunnels below the mountain, she didn’t hesitate to follow it. It was there that she foun...

I love a good, unique setting for a game book. This isn’t one you see very often. It’s a gloomy, nautical fantasy realm called The Driftwood Verses. Don’t go all, “Aye, mehearties!” on me, as that’s not really what’s going on. They describe it as something ou...

Bakemono are tricky, little buggers. Some can jump into shadows and come out elsewhere. Others employ various magic spells to confound you. And some just turn into giant, hulking brutes and bash your brains in with their now-oversized hands. That’s the case for Xi-Han and his alter-ego, Zoo. Th...
