My Video Response to Grim On RPG Forums 0

Really, I need to do more videos but that’s not what this is about. In case you didn’t hear there was yet another round of craziness over at RPGNet and James “Grim” Desborough of Postmortem Studios ended up with a perma-ban. I don’t personally know Grim but I do like his stuff and follow him

I’ve been tracking tabletop game projects on KS pretty much since there have been tabletop game projects on KS. Something like half of KS tabletop game projects get funded. Why?

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game: The Review 0

Back in 1998 I was just beginning high school (my apologies to any of you who now feel particularly old), and a friend of mine introduced me to this crazy little CCG called Middle Earth: The Wizards by the sadly fading Iron Crown Enterprises .

How do I add more to 4d8+18? 0

Despite Wizards of the Coast not showing up on my doorstep with a giant novelty check and a offer to move to Renton, I’ve decided to complete what I set out to accomplish. And that was of course to publish two articles so mind numbingly boring that ICANN shuts down the internet. The first was “How do I add 25% to 4d8+…
