In a previous preview for Legacy of Dragonholt, there was a bit of discussion about “is this an RPG or not?” and no, it really isn’t, but there’s so many elements that really feel like it is. In this preview, we get a look at Character Creation. And, yeah, it really does feel ...

When I’m playing an RPG, I like to have the right miniature on the board to represent what the PCs are fighting. And I know my PCs like to have a mini that as closely as possible represents their character. As such, it’s always good to have more options available. And that’s what we...
