Wendy's RPG and the Critical Role Backlash

Wendy's recently released Feast of Legends, a tongue-in-cheek role playing game (RPG) set in a Wendy's-inspired fantasy world.  Appropriately, most gamers were simply amused and dismissive.

D&D Challenge Day 26 – To Mini or not to Mini?

Day 26 – Do you prefer miniatures or ‘theatre of the mind’? I can’t play this game without minis. But I respect those who do. We’ve always played D&D with miniature figures, right from the start.
