Interview: Aaron Vanek, Executive Director of Seekers Unlimited (Edu-LARP Kickstarter)

As a parent of two bright children, I am always seeking ways to not only challenge them, but get them thinking creatively. As a gamer, I know first hand that board games and roleplaying games do both of those things well, so I actively seek ways to play with them whenever I can. And when . . . → Read More: Interview: Aaron Vanek, Executive Director of Seekers Unlimited (Edu-LARP Kickstarter)

Interview: Chris Littler of Chamber Band

From the title alone, you probably realized this isn’t a normal kind of article for Game Knight Reviews. This is the first music interview on the site and for one very good reason. Chamber Band’s debut album, Deities, is chock full of D&D. Yes, you read that right. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Gassy Gnoll: Mapping Player and GM Worlds

Ok. Next time you get a chance to experiment a bit with your gaming group, I’d like you to try this… Have the GM draw a map of the world and then have each player draw a map of the world. Want to bet they look a wee bit different?

The Gassy Gnoll: The Impermanence of Thought and How To Use It to Beat the Block

The Gassy Gnoll has been tired lately and had far too much time to think when he should have been sleeping. This is hardly ever a good thing when it happens. But for some reason he’s been very philosophical and introspective of late. Recently that led to a strange train of thought…

How would you . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: The Impermanence of Thought and How To Use It to Beat the Block

Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links (24-NOV-2012)

Welcome to the next chapter of the Friday Knight News, arranged a bit differently.

This week, as you might have guessed from not seeing a post on Friday, the weekly news post was pushed from Friday to Saturday. I took Friday off to enjoy with my family and get my ducks in a row after . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links (24-NOV-2012)

NaGaDeMon 2012: Pick a Few Cards…

Ok, so last time I talked a bit about the concept behind the game and already feel like I’m falling behind on the month of design work. Will it be completely done by the end of NaGaDeMon? Probably not. But there will be some playtests and maybe I’ll have enough cards to have a good . . . → Read More: NaGaDeMon 2012: Pick a Few Cards…

The Gassy Gnoll: Shifting Magical Paradigms Without a Clutch

Last week the Gassy Gnoll asked why 4e spell powers are so cut and dried. This week he wants to throw the D&D magic system out the window in favor of something much more open…

Right now you create a wizard, pick a few powers, and run. All the powers work generally the same, using . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Shifting Magical Paradigms Without a Clutch

The Gassy Gnoll: Social Maps for Adventures?

The Gassy Gnoll leads an odd life at times. Recently he was looking at his Gnollbook profile and Gnitter feeds and was struck by the idea of using social media techniques to track relationships in RPG adventures and campaigns. Considering that he knows very little about social media trendspotting, it’s a wonder he came up . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Social Maps for Adventures?

The Gassy Gnoll: Is there a Kickstarter Anonymous?

Addiction is a terrible thing. Whether it’s to a particular brand of gnoll chow, the latest in gnoll fashion, or smoking, drinking, or gambling with your fellow gnolls… It can get ugly. And when those things get you in trouble, you get help from your friends and professionals who can talk you out of those . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Is there a Kickstarter Anonymous?

The Gassy Gnoll: Protection from Good/Evil

It’s obvious by now that the Gassy Gnoll sometimes gets… confused. Perhaps it’s the hair in his ears tickling his brain. (He tries valiantly to keep it trimmed, but as he gets older, it seems to gain speed and strength.)

I saw an old article from Derrek Myers about alignment in 4e D&D this week . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Protection from Good/Evil
