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...

Well, civilization has collapsed again, this time because the sun exploded. Damnit, Todd. I told you to stop throwing rocks at it. Thankfully, things like a host start for your planet aren’t as necessary as you might think if you’ve got some powerful magic on your side. And the Nature War...

Sometimes you want to game in a far-off, mystical land. Other times, you want to game in a far-off, sci-fi land. And sometimes you want to game right here on Earth in a modern setting. Though, while there’s lots of fantasy and sci-fi games, there’s not quite as many modern-setting games. ...

Though I’ve not gone in quite some time, I do enjoy camping. Going out there into the woods and getting back to nature. Just gotta watch out for all the forest creatures and make sure you’re not invading their territory. It’s bad enough with bears and cougars and such, but then you&...

It’s probably not a good sign when a temple that’s not been seen for millennia resurfaces. It’s even worse when monsters start coming out of it. But hey, there might be treasure in there! And, you know, you should probably do something about those monsters. Maybe find out why the te...

You’ve got heroes in your RPG. Unless you plan on having them just sitting in the tavern, sipping ale and not doing much of anything, you’ll need some monsters for them to go and attack. It’s sort of what heroes tend to do. But what sort of monsters will they go fight? Paizo is help...

The Var’Lande used to be a very nice elven thorp. However, it would seem as though some goblins have come marauding through there. The citizens have been slain. Some of the children have even been carted off. That would be horrible enough, warranting some adventurers to go avenge the slain and ...

Fantasy settings can take on a whole variety of themes. It can be bright and shining, full of magic and wonder. It can be gritty and dirty, with steampunk elements creating a grimy, smoky, urban environment. Or it can cloud over the sun and cast everything in shadow, giving your game a creepy, spooky...

Some of my favorite RPG characters I’ve played haven’t been the strongest or most-deadly, but they’ve had razor-sharp wit and been able to talk their way out of (or into) just about any situation. If you’re like me and enjoy playing that type of character, then you’ll pr...
