While the sides in Star Wars are generally broken up rather simply to Light and Dark sides of the force, like everything in life, it’s not really that simple. There’s the 3rd “faction” to deal with. They’re the smugglers, the bounty hunters, the thieves, and many others ...

The Annual Talent Show for Wizards is once again here. Each wizard is looking to show off their skills, competing to be the greatest wizard for the year. It’s quite a free-for-all, though, as every wizard is looking to do their most flashy tricks all at once. Will you have what it takes to be [...

I know what you might be thinking. “Wouldn’t a company just selling some blank dice be more grounds for part of a Snippets post?” And you’d be right, if it was just that there were some blank dice available. However, while they can certainly be used for whatever you might need...

If games like Grand Theft Auto have told us anything, it’s that it can be fun to sometimes play the bad guy. Running around, stealing cars, robbing banks, and doing all that sort of nasty stuff in order to gain fat piles of cash and retire to some tropical island certainly has its appeal. And [...
