[meta] Fun & Buttons

We’ve been playing D&D together for almost four years and it that amount of time, you develop inside jokes, themes and traditions. Many of our jokes come from our first campaign, the 2.5 year adventure of Shackled City, which took place in and around the city of Cauldron. We still have those characters — now 15th level — and I hope…

Nightfall: The New Game From Alderac Enertainment Group

Our friends from Alderac sent a new game for review. It’s called Nightfall and it reminds me of nothing so much as a board game in compact size. The story premise is that the sun is gone and permanent night has fallen on earth. The world has become a playground for the dark creatures of our imaginations. Ghouls, vampires and werewolves battle each other and the human …

Props, Props, Props

We didn’t get to use all the amazing props that Sarah created for our last Serenity adventure. They looked amazing and I wanted to show off a few of them…. Close up of a dragon column The full temple I happened to have a few of our old friends to use as props inside the temple More odd alien-like creatures we would have encountered Aw crap, is …

Nezumi Tribes

There are several Nezumi Tribes listed in the new Enemies of the Empire book. Since Sarah and I are both playing Nezumi, I wrote up a quick sketch for the different tribes. My character is (natch) a healer — shaman in this game setting and I thought a Nezumi would be fun to play. We are using the Oriental Adventures book from …

Enemies of the Empire – A Review

The fine folks at Alderac Entertainment Group sent me a review copy of their newest L5R rpg book – Enemies of the Empire . It is a combination monster manual, history book and GM resource. And, somehow more than all of those things, too. As with the first book of the new 4th edition , it is beautiful. These people really know their …

[Meta] Insert Photo Montage Here

It has been a crazy few weeks for me and I am so far behind on Divas posts that we are going to have to resort to a tried ‘n true movie method to get ourselves out of this hole. Yep, photo montage. There have been some great props and some amazing gameplay and dang it! It needs to be…

[meta] Legend of the Five Rings 4th Edition RPG

A few weeks ago, out of the blue, I got an email from Alderac Entertainment Group. Their new edition of the Legend of the Five Rings RPG was out and they asked if I wanted to review the book. I jumped at the chance! After spending over two years in Cauldron and then the last half year in The Black , I’m eager to visit…

[Meta] Want Legos! Want Legos Now!

Legos. I had no idea how much fun I would have with them. I never played with Legos as a kid. We had Lincoln Logs. And an erector set, but I thought that was boring. I had friends with Legos and I played some at their houses but usually we played race cars or cops and robbers instead. It wasn’t until we started playing Serenity that the …
