You know, the start of this week went by quick. It seemed like it was Tuesday evening and getting onto Wednesday in a flash. Yesterday was pretty standard, but by now, it feels like it should be further in the week. I’m not sure what put the brakes on the forward progression of time, but [&hell...

The gaming shop that I will always consider my “second home” is The Fantasy Shop, St. Charles in Missouri. It was there that I really cut my gaming teeth there. It’s where I bought my first packs of gaming cards (first Magic, then NetRunner) and learned to play minis games. In one c...

As we all know by now, I feel that you can never have too many options when it comes to your RPG. You should be able to create the character you want when playing, and having more resources to help make that character a reality is good. That’s why Interjection Games made their Strange Magic [&h...
