Many of my friends have subscriptions to various “crate” services. Whether it’s snacks or comics or toys, it seems a couple times a week someone’s getting some new box at the office of something fun. Well, now we can add another to the list, RPGCrate. Subscriptions are being t...

It’s Friday. So tomorrow’s the weekend. It’s also the last weekend before Gen Con. I know some people that’ll be headed towards Indy as early as Monday morning. That means there’s lots to get done this weekend to prepare for the show. And if there’s lots to get don...

Yo ho-ho, a pirate’s life for me. If you want to live the pirate’s life as well on your Bushido tabletops, your wait is nearly over. The next faction for the game, the Jung Pirates, are soon to be let loosed upon the seas of the Jwar Isles. If you’re going to Gen Con, you […]...

Well, yesterday slowed things down, but it seems to have picked back up again rather nicely. We now find ourselves halfway through Friday. That weekend will be here before we know it! What have you all got set up for the weekend? I’ve got a whole heap of chores to get done before Gen Con [&hell...

We’ve made it to the halfway mark. Just the rest of today, and then two full days and we’ll be back into the sweet embrace of the weekend. How will you be beating the heat? Inside gaming? Outside trying to catch them all? A little of both? Just be sure to hydrate. A group of […]...

Well, as was expected, Thursday has turned into Friday. The week’s still going by quickly (that’s NOT a complaint). So it should be almost no time before I’m headed home for a lovely weekend of… I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be up to this weekend. Having spent the la...

The week keeps on keepin’ on. We’ve gotten past the first half, with the second coming right at us. If we’re going to be making it to the weekend (where I plan on doing as little as possible), we’d better stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today we have: Advanced Depl...

Hey everyone. Well, I’m back home again. What? You didn’t realize I wasn’t sitting in the office as usual this week? That’s because TGN is always in my heart and I take it wherever I go. … … I also have a laptop and can basically work from anywhere with an internet...

While Imperial starfighters aren’t generally known for being rugged, and thus bringing their pilots home after every mission, those who are skilled enough can achieve the title “Veteran.” These seasoned pilots can bring a lot to an engagement. That’s just what you get in the I...

The week continues along, as it tends to do. It’s only just today that I really realized that this upcoming weekend is a long one for those of us here in the US. The 4th of July falls on Monday. So that’ll be cool. Time for some BBQs. But before we get to the hamburgers, […]...

It’s been a long week. Well, ok, technically it’s been as long as pretty much every other week. But it seems that it really slowed down starting Wednesday afternoon. I’m certainly ready for the weekend, anyway. Gotta refuel in order to make it there, though. So I’m going to ch...

As I’ve mentioned many times, having extra resources available to your DM is only ever a good thing, in my mind. Most groups don’t have 6-8 months between games like my group does. So the DM has to be more-ready for game. Sometimes that doesn’t happen. That’s where pre-generat...

I’ve been involved with gaming for well over a decade now. Many of my friends I’ve known from “way back” have had some great, momentous things happen in their lives. Like my friend Ravyn. 9 years ago, she got married (no, not to me. :P). She’s since gone on to start Adva...

It’s Friday, everyone. Keep calm and we’ll get through this just fine and then move onward into the bliss that is the Weekend. My gaming is going to start early, as when I get out of here, I’m going to an Irish Pub nearby for some bangers and mash. Afterward, it’s back to my p...

I swear the guys over at Steamforged found my profile, said, “hmm, what can we make that’ll all-but guarantee that this dude plays our game?” and then figured it out and made it. The Hunter’s Guild is still pretty new out there for Guild Ball, but you can now order the first e...

It’s another Saturday. Through an odd turn of events, I’m in the office. So Monday and Tuesday I was home because I was sick. Now it’s Saturday and I’m in the office because my internet is broken at home (overnight storm fried my modem). But all is well. Things are getting don...

I’ve really been looking forward to this weekend. Not that the work week’s been bad, mind you. It’s actually gone by in a flash. No, I’m just ready for a full weekend of gaming (and article-writing, which is a direct result of the gaming). What sort of things do you have plann...

I’ve always been a fan of a nice walk through the fog. As a morning person, this gets to happen on several occasions. However, if that fog is filled with undead, it’s not always such a good thing to be walking around in. However, walking around in it is just what your heroes in Descent [&...

We’re making our way through the week here at a steady pace. It’s already Wednesday. I hope it’s going smoothly for you. It’s been naturally busy the first couple days after the Expo. I’m mostly caught up. Just a couple things left. But at the exact moment, it’s br...

When hanging out at the LGS, whether it’s during a tourney or just going between games, we all have various ways of transporting our armies from one spot to another. Some people put their figs back into the foam trays or tackle box they came out of. Though that can be really time-consuming. Others wi...

Hey everyone. I hope your Tabletop Day yesterday was good. I hope you enjoyed the Unboxing of Lost Patrol. I’m spending much of the day today putting together that set so I can try it out over the coming weeks. I’m also going to be baking German Chocolate Cake Cookies. Yes, they will be a...

Ok, everyone, we’re progressing along at a nice, steady pace through the week. We can keep this up. We can manage to continue this direction and speed and the weekend will be here before we know it. But we should stock up on energy. A great way to do that is via some bite-sized gaming […...

There’s a lot of “moving parts” when it comes to running an RPG. You’ve got all the stats for the players to keep track of. You’ve got all the various monsters you might be throwing at them. There’s all the NPCs going around. There’s the adventure to keep tra...

And we’re back to a “standard weekend” after the whirlwind that was Adepticon. As great as conventions are, it’s the “calm between the storms” that make us appreciate the storms (… I’m not the only one that really likes thunderstorms, am I?). Anyway, od...

And we’ve made it to Friday. In some ways it’s been a short week, since I worked from home on Tuesday and thus have only been in the office 3 days. However, being still tired from Adepticon has mitigated that somewhat. So I’m very ready for the weekend. I need to sort through my Ade...
