When I was first approached to review Drinking Quest I was alive with glee, as we always struggle to play DnD or other tabletop games drunk is usually complicated for my group, and choosing between drinking and gaming sometimes a hassle.

Lost in DAZ Studio 4. Send food.

I should be writing blogposts about other things (such as how to run a 4e D&D game using Mutants & Masterminds and how to build a mega-dungeon using nothing but Delves), but DAZ Studio 4 has eaten up a frankly shocking amount of my free time over the last few days. Sorry ’bout that. Quite simply, it’s brilliant. The interface improves upon DS3′s in…

NightSky Review

Once in a while you have a need for a game to entertain you for an hour or two. If I’m travelling and I have few hours extra time, I am usually too tired to focus on heavier games be it strategy or rpgs. I don’t know about you, but in my opinion, casual games

Review: Ultimate Magic for Pathfinder

Ultimate Combat is the latest sourcebook from Paizo Publishing for the Pathfinder RPG.  So, what is it?  Basically it’s a big ol’ hardcover book full of options for magic characters, as well as a completely new and optional spell system called Words of Power.
