It’s Complicated

I usually don’t post on Mondays, but I saw a conversation on Twitter that has me a bit upset and I felt the need to write about it.

I may not like 4th Ed. but I like some the people who play it.

I tweeted this little thought a couple of days ago and it just stuck with me. Really people, it’s about time to just shut up and roll some dice. Now I know that this troll bait but let’s face it. If so many people are concerned about the future of the hobby, wouldn’t it make

On August 4, the Paizo Servers will burn

That’s when the PDF for the Advanced Player’s Guide gets released for all us poor schmucks who don’t a have subscription. My prediction is that it’s going to almost as bad as when they released the core book. I’m really excited about this product. From the play test documents that they’ve released and the

California’s Video Game Law

Oh not you too, Texas. Don’t tell me you’re in on this too. Somebody tell them that the state brings in some good money from all those evil games. But then again they still should be considered a form of expression and (I dare say it) art. Just like a bad novel or the latest

This is a test
