Plastic Crack is Wack! 0

As I’ve said before , miniatures in my games a relatively new addition, only since 2001 when we started playing Dungeons & Dragons 3 rd edition. I was not weaned into gaming through minis; I did not migrate from wargames to RPGs, instead I jumped right into gaming and was pretty much self-taught, so I never used miniatures. In fact I resisted! When D&D 3 rd edition came out I realized the …

A font by any other name… 0

I don’t know about you, but I love collecting them. Ever since I got my first word processor I cherished the possibility of changing the font depending on the purpose of the document I was writing. For a big period in my gaming life one of the things I enjoyed the most was creating character sheets for the games I was playing, (this was in that…

Yesterday my friend and fellow RPG blogger Roberto pointed this video out to me: It’s a promotion video created by now…

Lazy Friday Video Post: “She don’t like Firefly!” 0

It has been quite some time since the last “Lazy Friday Video Post”, but I thought I should resurrect this tradition. This week’s video is not really RPG-related but I know that a lot of gamers also like Firefly, so it’s not totally off-topic. www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-yHSaP0Dyg By the way, this song is definitely fun to listen to, but I doubt it’s based on a…

The time I almost quit gaming! 0

I guess we’ve all had it. That time where you get frustrated with gaming, throw your arms up and say forget this, I’m not playing anymore… Especially if you’ve been playing for a long time like me (close to 25 years soon) you might just have had that feeling more than once. Strangely enough I’ve only been about to quit once. So if you’ll indulge me I’ll tell you about…

Making NPCs come alive! 0

Tweet After bashing NPCs on a previous post I think this time around I’ll show them some love. I won’t claim the advice I’m going to give is wholly original. It’s the collected wisdom of many GMs that came before me, sprinkled with my own humble experience. If you are an experience GM some of this advice may seem basic, …

Letting go of that NPC 0

Tweet Attention: Slight rambling ahead, with a point to make about RPGs somewhere in there, you have been warned! I recently finished reading the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson (that’s the girl with the dragon tattoo, which then played with fire and ended up kicking the hornet’s nest). And in case you are wondering, yes I do read other stuff that is…

Fortune Cards, my two cents… 0

Tweet There’s been a storm in the Twitterverse and the Blogosphere, a storm of FORTUNE!

Well that does seem a little bit extreme, but I had NO idea what the D&D Fortune Cards until I started reading tweets about them. So I went …
