Me (of the Dead!) 0

Hello, I’m Shaun. I live in Maryland, on the east coast of the United States, and I’ve been playing roleplaying games for almost 19 years now. For the first half of that, I never really had a regular group. I was lucky if I could get two people together to game. I played a lot of regular one-on-one sessions …

Freebie: Stars Without Number 0

I’ve known of the existence of this game for quite a while now, but for some reason I just picked it up pretty recently. That’s why I don’t want to call this post a fully review.

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…

I’ve been a fantasy fiction geek since around 1st grade. As I was growing up, I was exposed to D&D via the original Red Box…

Yesterday I stumbled upon this post at the famous BoingBoing blog which featured two pieces of awesome NASA artistic renderings of possible future space missions. I love science and space exploration. Even as a kid I read and watched everything I could about astronomy, space exploration and physics. And of course I almost devoured any SF novel I could find in the house. Ever since I …

And the Dragon Age RPG definitely lived up to my expectations, it actually surpassed them. It’s a great game for new players to pick up and play because …
