Kickin’ it old-school with the crew from RPG Circus

For quite some time the crew of RPG Circus and me tried to figure out how to get me on their show. Alas because of the different time zones this has been more problematic than we anticipated. But when I decided to attend Gen Con this year, we planned to record something in Indianapolis. So on one of the “ Four Best…

So what about a Book Club?

Those of you that follow me on Twitter (and if you are interested you can find me as @sunglar, but be forewarned I do ramble on) will know that besides RPGs I work way too much, been called a workaholic, and literature. Currently I’m participating in the second book club I’ve belonged to and loving every minute of it. I think books clubs …

Writing A Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition Adventure

The Computer I Do Most Of My Writing On. I am a bit of a G1 Transformers Fan. Over the last few years I have been reading books on management and starting a business. I really enjoy reading books on these topics and I have benefited greatly from reading them. One book that has had the biggest impact on my…

D Total

Inspired by Youseph’s and Bridget’s Gamescience dice reviews, I searched the internet for more information on Gamescience dice. I watched a couple of YouTube videos of Lou Zocchi explaining why his dice are far superior to any other  dice, before I stumbled upon this very interesting video about the D Total! I didn’t get any of those at Gen Con, because they were a bit too expensive for my …

Pathfinder RPG Spellcards, for free!

I know free stuff is usually Youseph’s topic but I discovered this website this week and I’m thrilled. As you doubtlessly know I’m a Pathfinder RPG fan and have run a weekly game for the past year. Even if I don’t play D&D 4 th edition I can tell you many things I liked about the game, one of them was the ability, with the DDI , of printing power cards. I’ve…

GameScience Dice Review

Last March I wrote a post titled The Importance of Dice where I talked about how important dice are to both players and game masters alike. It seems like everywhere I look every person has their own unique way of holding and rolling their dice. Some people wont let anyone else touch their dice for fear of negative consequences as a result. The options of dice …

25 years later… 24 years later!

The nonsensical title to this posts is actually a reference to my first ever attempt at designing a game. From that attempt I learned that designing a game is hard, a mixture of creativity and perseverance. Almost like catching lightning in a bottle. If you’ll indulge me, let’s travel down memory lane to the year 1986, when I created my first game, 25 years later . I remember…

Gen Con: A Happy Gamer!

Daniel M. Perez from Highmoon Games just sent me this photo of a very happy gamer. If you are at Gen Con and not smiling like that guy, you’re doing it wrong. Too bad it’s still 12 months to Gen Con 2011!

Gen Con: GM’s Jam!

One of the highlights of this year’s Gen Con was definitely the GM’s Jam seminar. Since I had brought my video camera with me, I recorded the whole thing and uploaded it to blip.tv . Alas I forgot to bring a tripod, so the video is a bit shaky at times. But aside from that, the video should be fine. Part 1: Part 2: I hope you enjoy the video!…

Electronic Tools for Gaming – The iPhone

I’ll admit it, I was a holdover. I didn’t make the switch to an iPhone until last winter. Before that I had an ancient Palm Treo that worked perfectly well for years. I used it to browse the internet, and on it I planned many adventures and campaigns. I had used an iPhone and loved it so when I had the chance to end my old mobile phone contract …

I finally had some time to edit the video interview I did with the nice guys from  Crafty Games . If you are even remotely interested in Spycraft or Fantasy Craft, you have to check this out.

WR&M Review @ The Chaos Grenade

I am always overjoyed to read reviews of my game “Warrior, Rogue & Mage”. And I am especially happy when someone enjoyed it very much, like in the case of R.E. Davis from The Chaos Grenade . He’s using the game to run a campaign in a post-apocalyptic/steampunk campaign. The only thing he didn’t like that much was …

When everything goes as planned, I’ll release the video in the coming days. Another video to be released as soon as I am home is a recording of the DMs Jam seminar. …
