The Gassy Gnoll is of Irish descent. (With a name like Fitzpatrick, it’s probably not shocking!) But he’s not the luckiest bastard on the planet and is often quoted as saying “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” (Which is actually a quote he stole from his father, who probably . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Learning to Embrace My Fickle Dice

Supplement Review: The Dungeon Alphabet (Expanded Third Printing) by Michael Curtis from Goodman Games

As a game- or dungeon master, sometimes you have more ideas than you could possibly use in one campaign.
