You belong in a zoo! Can’t say I’ve ever had that actually yelled at me, but I do enjoy going to the zoo (though it’s been quite a long time since I’ve been to one). As one would expect, I tend to head to the polar bear enclosure and hang out there. If I could […]...

A DM, in my opinion, can never have too many resources at their disposal when it comes time to run the game. Pre-made adventures are a nice way to get your game going without having to spend hours and hours of prep time on it. You just open up to Page 1 and go. In […]...

Not every Kickstarter campaign makes it to their funding goal on the first try. There’s no shame in that, as I have seen many campaigns retool and make it even further the second time around than they could’ve ever hoped the first time. With any luck, that will be the case for Dawn of the...

Some drinking games out there are just meant to get you as drunk as possible as fast as possible (beyond just chugging pure grain alcohol, I suppose). Bowties is a bit more casual about it. A little more upscale. Players have a card that they “wear” like a bowtie with a rule on it. They [...
