Editorial Note: Normally I don’t reblog, but this subject was covered very well in the original and the subject is so mind-bogglingly great the original author (Scott Grunewald) deserves the recognition. The following appeared in 3DPrint.com today: ———————————————————————— When Gary … Continue reading →

What is the Well of Souls?
In this Role-Play Ramblings Matt discusses the role of death as it pertains to players and their characters. Is it morally acceptable for a GM to kill off PC’s. This concludes the first season of Role-Play Ramblings. I hope to start season two very soon, check back, or follow us on Twiite and Facebook for […]

The cadre follows their path to the relic, finding more than they expected in Surkh.
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 […]
Alaundo, the True Prophet
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 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 […]
This is a video created by Dorks of Yore, where Tim Kask talks about his time at Dragon Magazine. It is listed as being the first in a series, so I will append this post with each new video as it is released.
Early Days at Dragon Magazine
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. […]
Legends say that in the Year of the Awakened Sleepers, the demon called Shuluth was trapped within a living prison, doomed to remain on the Prime Plane.
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. […]
This episode we get into some niche corners of RPG, like playing in silence and fighting Actual Cannibal Shia LaBeouf! We also review some oldies, but goodies like Cadwallon: City of Thieves and Mystery of the Abbey. Don’t forget, we
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 […]
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 […]
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′ […]

This episode we wrap two RPGs we’ve been playing in, look forward to Ravenloft and marvel at the ongoing developments in DMs Guild. We also are looking forward to several board game Kickstarters and catch up with how a few
Dwarven Forge is currently running its fourth kickstarter: “Castle Builder” (running through March 30th, 2016 at 6:00pm PST). As expected, it blasted past the initial goal within hours and unlocked a number of stretch goals before the day was out. Let’s take a look at what makes Dwarven Forge kickstarters so incredibly amazing. Background Dwarven […]
