Yes, I’m more than a bit behind on reviews, but I keep chugging along. This past weekend I had an opportunity to check out A0: Crow’s Rest island from Adventure A Week (AdventureAWeek.com).

The Gassy Gnoll: Communicating a Vision (Art Direction)

Of late I have had the opportunity to work with four different artists for some Moebius Adventures projects I’m working on and it’s made me appreciate the fact that sometimes I can communicate well. Unfortunately that also means that sometimes I cannot communicate well. Without clearly communicating the vision for a piece or a group . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Communicating a Vision (Art Direction)

Supplement Review: Shadowlands: Secrets of the Tainted Adventure Arc (PFRPG) by John Maki from BlackStar Studios

Back in the fall of 2011, I backed a Kickstarter project from BlackStar Studios to see what the world of Shadowlands was all about (they have a new Kickstarter going as well – check out the links at the bottom for more). Largely that decision was made based on the art that appeared on the . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Shadowlands: Secrets of the Tainted Adventure Arc (PFRPG) by John Maki from BlackStar Studios

The Gassy Gnoll: Where do you find artistic inspiration?

This Gassy Gnoll is not much of an artist. Stick figures mostly. The occasional dungeon map. I would have been right at home doing cave paintings 15-20,000 years ago. But I can appreciate talent in those who have it. The ability to render a mental image in some concrete way so someone else can also . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Where do you find artistic inspiration?

Ten Links in the Chain: Food for Thought (5-APR-2013)

Greetings friends!

I won’t go into another long whiny rant about why I haven’t been posting lately. Instead we’ll just dive into some of the links I’ve gathered over the last month or so that have made me think in some way “I wonder how I could adapt that to gaming?” It’s been a while . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Food for Thought (5-APR-2013)

Friday Map: Shrine of Three (Or Four… Or Five…)

So today we have a shrine consisting of a series of interconnected rooms with multiple purposes. I ran over the 5 minute mark by a few seconds in the car, but not by much.

My idea is that a multi-faced deity might have a few different types of worshipers or that a collection of smaller . . . → Read More: Friday Map: Shrine of Three (Or Four… Or Five…)

Interview: Michael Desing of Michael T. Dessing’s Army Ants Comic, RPG, and Kickstarter

A couple of weeks ago, Michael Desing of the Michael T. Desing’s Army Ants War Effort Kickstarter dropped me a line and we started chatting via e-mail. Though I’d not heard of the comic before, the style and subject matter immediately captured my attention and I was happy to learn more.

Friday Map: Hall of Sighs

Here’s my latest map… This one was very close to 5 minutes. And though I’m not quite sure what the round room is in the middle, my muse has chosen to call it the “Hall of Sighs” so that’s what I’m going with.

 

A stairwell leads down into the complex, which is trapped . . . → Read More: Friday Map: Hall of Sighs

Friday Map: Lost Laboratory

In lieu of a links post this week, here’s my 5 minute (really 10 minutes plus a little finishing time) map for the day. I’m not sure what it is exactly, but I’m convinced there’s a story buried there… somewhere.
