It seemed like a nice place, at the time. A valley that had a bit of a swamp problem, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed without a little dam. It turned the valley into a rather productive one, agriculturally-speaking. But now, there’s rumbling in the hills around the valley. Goblins. Tho...

Few villains work alone. You’ve got the leader of a criminal organization and their hordes of underlings. Or a cult leader and all their cultists. Or a dragon and all their dragonlings. Whatever the case, you have a Master and Minions, and that’s also what we’ve got in this 5th edit...

I’m a big fan of anything that makes the job of a GM easier. Having been one, in many game systems, for decades at this point, I love when I get something that streamlines the process for everyone. And pre-made adventures are great at that. In this case, we’ve got The Best Below, a 5th [&...

Sometimes you want to get your D&D on and your group’s not there. Maybe you’re waiting for them to show up. Maybe you weren’t able to get everyone together. Maybe it’s not your regular gaming day. Whatever the reason, you want your D&D and you want it now! But how to...

I think we can all agree that gaming is fun and good. Well, what can be even more fun and good? Gaming for a cause, of course! Wizards of the Coast certainly thinks so, and that’s why they are participating in the Extra Life charity event to raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital. An...

Dungeons & Dragons is a great game. However, it can, occasionally, be rough to try and keep up with everything for it. The various books and other supplemental material offer players and DMs lots of chances for customization, but it can occasionally be a bit daunting to sort through it. ThatR...

You’ve often heard me talk about how it’s always good for a DM/GM to have access to pre-made items to make running their games go more smoothly and so they don’t have to create everything for their game from whole cloth. Well, the One Shot Compendium is just such a thing. It’s...

Some people just want to see the world burn. All those stuck-up, self-righteous, do-gooders make them sick. They’d much rather everyone run around, doing what they want. That’s the sort of setting you’re dropped into in Book of Exalted Darkness. It’s a holy decopunk campaign w...

If you’re like me, you fill your day with gaming stuff as much as possible. In-between making posts and working on other projects, I’ll usually crack open a gaming magazine to see what else is going on in the gaming world. Always better when that magazine’s for free. 😛 Such is the c...

Role playing characters level up (unless they get killed off or your group can never manage to get together for a game). It’s sort of what they do. They gain new abilities and gear. Things change. So why shouldn’t your miniatures? WizKids has announced their D&D Icons of the Realms Ep...

When playing Dungeons & Dragons, your class is pretty important. Even your race or alignment really isn’t quite as important for your character as your class is. Those others might come up from time to time, but your class comes up pretty much any time you roll the dice. As such, picking j...

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&...
