The busy week of being busy continues on. Yesterday was more of the same. The one thing that’s nice is that, sure, it’s been busy, but it’s been the good, productive kind of busy. So even though it’s a huge checklist I’m working through, things are being checked off. The...

So, while you’re listening along to all those gaming podcasts (though I assume not all at once), you might need something for your eyes to do while taking a break from work. I’d suggest looking over the pages of Ironwatch issue 56, which is now available for your downloading and reading p...

Well, I’m coming to realize that this is not going to be a regular week. With all the prep and hype for GAMA last week, even though I realize that I leave for Adepticon this week, it’s still sort of a, “oh yeah, that…” instead of, y’know, “Oh yeah! That!!R...

Wherever gamers get together to game, there’s going to be the question of, “who is the best at this game?” So you pair off and fight it out (on the tabletop, of course), looking to work your way to the top table and come out the champion. Nothing wrong with the good, healthy spirit ...

There’s a lot of things that live out in the ocean. Whales, fish, squid, whale-fish-squid-men… It’s that last group that you should really worry about the most. But if you can take control of those fierce fighters, you can not only control the waves, but potentially the land, too. B...
