Privateer Press has been busy with new Hordes previews lately. I guess with a new book coming up, it’d be the right time to do such things. Speaking of books, they have a small look at Devastation, the next Hordes book that’s coming out. There’s also a look at an Extreme model that ...

As a Game Master, sometimes you need a one-shot adventure. Whether it’s just that you haven’t had time to plan the next epic saga for your players, or that your players aren’t quite the right level yet and so they’d be TPK’ed if they went into your next planned dungeon, ...

I, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, am more-than-likely playing 2nd edition D&D when this will be posted to the site. Some friends I know have a long-running campaign and the DM is writing me in as an occasionally-recurring NPC. Not sure what my character will be (at time of typing), but it ...
