The Whitewolf, a character played by a good friend of mine throughout our career as High School Students, is a unique and fascinating character that continues to appear in my storytelling during game of Dungeons & Dragons. The character is also a v…

Which of the D&D Series modules do you think are the best?
Two years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long) I announced my plans for releasing my house rules (tentatively named “Alternate Reality”). Other than a single update, I haven’t talked about it since. I’ve been spending a lot of time on it recently though, so I thought I’d post an update. Lost Sadly, all […]
For some time, I’ve been hoping that someone would do a Deck of Many Things Kickstarter. I’ve even considered doing it myself but coming up with the artwork was daunting. Fortunately, someone with a bit more drive got behind it and has started one! I received an email the other day from Ed Courtroul at […]
Gardain continues to log about his adventures in Nexus.
In March 2013, Dwarven Forge started a kickstarter project to fund the development of a new line of tiles. They flew past their $50k goal in a matter of days. By the end, they raised $1.9 million dollars. I’m so happy that I heard about it in time to take part! Then came the long […]
The importance of fairy tales.
Garadain Glimmerstone is a cleric of Dumathoin, the Dwarven god of mining and death. He has taken a vow of poverty, so he is not involved with the expedition to gain wealth or property. He is simply dedicated to helping the dying move on to eternal res…
A logbook kept by Gardain Glimmerstone.
One problem we have always faced at the gaming table was not having enough light. Placing extra lamps on the table, or standing lamps next to the table, certainly added more light. But they were always in the way and the cords were in danger of being tripped over. A friend of mine came up […]
After a hard drive crash a while back I’m still re-installing everything. Today I installed all my ProFantasy software. I prefer a slightly different layout of the menu bars and was about to arrange them when it occurred to me that some folks may not know about this and would like to see how it’s […]
What kind of gaming table does your group use? A small dining table? A coffee table? Do you wish you had more room? I prefer a huge tabletop where I can spread out and still have room for miniatures in the center. But who wants a table that dominates the living space? Folding tables are […]
I’m sure you all know that I am a great fan of ProFantasy’s Campaign Cartographer. It is, bar none, the best fantasy mapping software around. Like many companies, ProFantasy offers an affiliate program that pays a small commission for referrals. Over the years, I have referred a great many people. All those commissions have added […]
Yesterday I discovered a really cool new Kickstarter. It involves a pair of standard regulation playing card decks, produced by Bicycle, with a Cthulhu theme. The artwork is beautiful and eerie and very much in the Lovecraft style. The Kickstarter will produce two decks of playing cards (Elder Sign and Necronomicon) as well as all […]
On March 2nd, 2012, James Maliszewski of Grognardia announced that he was starting a Kickstarter project to publish his home campaign’s mega-dungeon Dwimmermount. Everything was to be completed and sent out to backers in August 2012. Here we are in October 2013 and so far nothing has been sent. Grognardia was perhaps the most well […]
Two years ago, I discovered what was to become my favorite miniatures manufacturer. Not only did Mega Miniatures produce high quality metal miniatures at a very reasonable rate, they had a large number of the original Grenadier molds (sculpted by Julie Guthrie). These are the miniatures that I grew up with when the hobby was […]
Scoundrels of Skullport is the first expansion for Lords of Waterdeep. The expansion is made up of two modules Undermountain and Skullport. You can add them to the base game individually or at the same time.
Attacks of Opportunity are one of the more controversial aspects of newer versions. I’ve gone back and forth ever since they were first introduced. On one hand, they make sense. When one combatant performs certain actions, their defenses are reduced giving their opponent an advantage which is represented by a free extra attack. On the […]
This isn’t exactly new information anymore (it came about over a year ago) but it’s exciting news nonetheless and I thought it was about time I got around to adding a link from this site. The CSUAC (Cecil Soloman’s Ultimate Art Collection) is once again available for CC3! For those unfamiliar with this package, it […]
Darlene’s World of Greyhawk map is probably the single most iconic D&D map ever made. It is certainly my favorite. I’ve tried scanning it but have never been able to get the sections to align well. Last year, I recreated it in ProFantasy’s Campaign Cartographer. I think it came out pretty well if I do […]
