Magazine Review: Sub Rosa, Issue 10, June 2012

Many moons ago I picked up a copy of a role-playing game from White Wolf called Ars Magica. It had undergone a few editions by the time I picked it up, but I was already knee deep in Vampire: The Masquerade and looking at Mage: The Ascension at the time… It appears it’s been through . . . → Read More: Magazine Review: Sub Rosa, Issue 10, June 2012

Magazine Review: Adventure Quarterly, Issue #1 from Rite Publishing

Content is king, right? And he or she with the best content often wins, or at least gains more interest. One avenue to getting more content out in the ether is to create a blog. Or you could offer freebies to tempt folks to buy your products. Or… maybe you could create a magazine! d6 . . . → Read More: Magazine Review: Adventure Quarterly, Issue #1 from Rite Publishing

News from Around the Net: 21-OCT-2011 (Sponsored by Escape Velocity Gaming)

Somehow with the Libyans finally catching Moammar Gadhafi I’m contemplating monsters this week. Sometimes it’s not the biggest, baddest creatures who are the scary ones.
