Tabletop World – stunning stuff

Posted on April 24th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

For a couple of years, I have been eyeing up the model buildings from Tabletop World (clicky linky thing) and trying to decide whether I should buy some or not. If you haven’t seen their work before, then I strongly suggest you take a look – it’s simply gorgeous. A little while ago I coughed […]

Character Portraits

Posted on April 15th, 2016 under . Posted by

Back in the 80’s, we had a DM that was exceptionally creative and artistically gifted. Sadly, he was also deviously malevolent. But that is a story for another post. One of the marvelous things he did for us was to create character portraits. When we created a new character (which was fairly often in his […]

Blake’s 7

Posted on April 14th, 2016 under . Posted by

Blake’s 7 is a British sci-fi show that aired from 1978-1981. I saw a few episodes on PBS in the mid-to-late 80’s and immediately fell in love with it. Sadly, PBS only aired those few episodes and I never had the opportunity to see more of the show… until today. The star of Blake’s 7, […]

Showcase: 3D Painted Dungeons & Dragons Barbarian I had an offer to paint a custom made 3D printed model for a dungeons and dragons player, and when I looked at the model I jumped at the chance as it was great to get back to painting the basics like skin and leather. The model itself […]

Real Life Ooze

Posted on April 1st, 2016 under . Posted by

D&D has a number of oozes, slimes, molds, and fungi with which to torture our unfortunate adventurers. I’ve always been fond of them for their ingenuity, but hesitant to use them much. They can be devastating to a group of new players, or a simple chore to those that know how to deal with them. […]

The Word Hobbit Predates JRR Tolkien

Posted on March 29th, 2016 under . Posted by

In 1974, when the LBBs were first printed, they included the word “Hobbit” and “Ent”. Subsequently, TSR received a Cease and Desist order from the Tolkien estate, claiming that those words were protected under copyright law and belonged to them. TSR removed those words in future printings. But now, some of that may be changing. […]

Simple Encumbrance

Posted on March 28th, 2016 under . Posted by

No one likes dealing with encumbrance (weight allowance). Looking up, and adding together, the weight of all the little bits you are carrying is annoying, and not particularly important. On the other hand, there should be a limit to what you can carry. Imagine that your group found a stash of ten million copper pieces […]

I Have To See A Man About A Horse

Posted on March 24th, 2016 under . Posted by

That phrase was my grandfather’s favorite euphemism for having to go to the bathroom. It’s funny what you remember. But this time I really do want to talk about horses. In every edition, there have been horses for sale: Warhorses (Light, Medium, and Heavy), Riding Horses, and Draft Horses. There may have been some slight […]

Brave Adventurers

Posted on March 19th, 2016 under . Posted by

Today, I saw a post about someone finding a wonderful new gaming table. He talked about how it would be perfect and that it was just a bit bigger than what he had been using, but my first impression was that it was really little. Maybe I’m just spoiled with the monster 4′ x 8′ […]

Pointless Math Stuff

Posted on March 7th, 2016 under . Posted by

I haven’t done one of these for a while, and I was bored, so I let my math nerd out to play. During the past few weeks, I’ve run across various conversations about math-related topics and I guess they’ve been percolating in the back of my head since then. Here’s the result. Is 1d4+1d6+1d8 the […]

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful time at Gary Con. I am so jealous. Wish I could have been with you. But instead I got a lot done around the house. Not nearly as much as I had hoped, but I still made some amazing progress. Best of all, I got rid of that nagging […]
