I was looking something up for another article and somehow got routed to a wiki page on the history of D&D editions. I had seen it before, but in scrolling through it I got caught up in their list of the differences between 1e and 2e D&D. I’ve been asked before what those differences were […]

I’ve told you all how pleased I am with 5e. Now it’s time to start picking on the things I don’t care for so much. The top of the list for me is definitely Classes. I’ve never been a fan of class bloat. That’s probably because I don’t see class as the defining aspect of […]

We played the first session of The Lost Mine of Phandelver, the Cragmaw Goblins. I am going to try and keep spoilers to a minimum but there is a good chance I may spoil some of the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set for you so if you plan on playing it, you have been warned.

Sage Advice: How to Gensai, Mounts using Disengage, and Disarming!
It has been 15 years since I last played a roleplaying game and around 17 years since I last played Dungeons and Dragons, but this weekend I’m dusting off the dice, hunting down my favourite dungeon master’s screen and poring over monster stats, as this weekend I will be returning to one of the games that marked the start of my journey into gaming, Dungeons and Dragons.

Reaper Miniatures ran their first Bones Kickstarter campaign a few years ago. I heard about it two weeks after it ended. It was amazing and I was crushed.

The mathematical constant pi is calculated by taking the circumference of a circle and dividing it by its diameter. This value is accepted to be 3.1415926 approximately. But is it? Prove it! Measure a circle and see if you can calculate that number using that method. I’ve been in my new house for almost a […]
