Brain Drain and Arvan Sale!

Posted on February 21st, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Sorry, no post this week due to brain drain. I’ve pretty much worked myself to exhaustion trying to write 6 articles, a weekly post, an adventure module, and prepping the material for the Dark Home setting all at once these past few weeks. As a result, I’ve pretty much drained my skull of ideas and […]

Tabletop Meditations #16: Old Empires

Posted on February 14th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

In any given fantasy RPG, but by no means all of them, a remnant empire or a landscape littered with the bones of an ancient empire sometimes mysterious oft times still vaguely powerful. Old empires appear throughout fantasy and thus many fantasy tabletop roleplaying games. Using this trope makes it a little easier to begin […]

Wondrous Objects #6 – The Wondrous Armory

Posted on February 7th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Here’s another fantastic item to drop into any Dice & Glory campaign. However, it is not strictly speaking an object. Instead it’s a clever use of a combination of spells, a locale, and some mundane but high quality weapons. It has the potential to pull double-duty as a hidden stash and an enemy’s clever gimmick. […]

Posted on January 10th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The sound of stone grinding against stone filled the mages’ ears as the solid black-stone door slid down into the floor stopping with the finality of a thud. That door would never close again. A large central fire lighted the oblong octagonal chamber before them. The walls were of the same dull black stone as […]
