The Gassy Gnoll: Zen Gaming (Gaming Unplugged 2014)

What is gaming to you? How do you define that experience for yourself? How do you define it for others? Is it possible to share your experience? Or is it only possible to share in *THE* experience?

These are all questions that have come to mind after watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty on . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Zen Gaming (Gaming Unplugged 2014)

The Gassy Gnoll: Top 10 Quick Gift Ideas for Gamers

The Gassy Gnoll is in full holiday insanity mode here at Gnoll Central, which means he’s thinking about what gifts to pick up for his fuzzy loved ones, what’s on his wish list, and who the heck he should “give” the business end of a polearm, axe, or sword the next time he sees them. . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Top 10 Quick Gift Ideas for Gamers

Supplement Review: Studies of Decay: Zombies by Kristofer Konkel from Rocks Fall Games

Zombies. Love ’em or hate ’em, they’re here to stay. Personally I’m a big fan if they’re done well, whether they appear on the big screen, the small screen, in a book, or at the game table. So when I saw that the folks at Rocks Fall Games had a new zombie-themed-supplement out for Pathfinder, . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Studies of Decay: Zombies by Kristofer Konkel from Rocks Fall Games

The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I had an opportunity to continue a D&D 4e adventure we started a year ago. With this particular group, we have now met three times in 12 months and only worked through about 2/3 of the dungeon so far. But that’s not the fun part…

The fun part is that the . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

Book Review: The Gazetteer Writer’s Manual by Deborah Teramis Christian and Bruce A. Heard

There are two aspects to RPGs… rules and settings. I have never been great at rules, but have always loved setting design. Building worlds, from creation myths and racial histories to area and dungeon maps and everything in-between, makes me a very happy writer when I get to dive in. But presenting those ideas to . . . → Read More: Book Review: The Gazetteer Writer’s Manual by Deborah Teramis Christian and Bruce A. Heard

Designer Interview: Brendan Davis of Bedrock Games on Sertorius

Recently I had an opportunity to check out a massive new fantasy RPG from Bedrock Games – Sertorius. And when I say “massive” I don’t mean it lightly. This thing could be used in hand to hand combat and seriously hurt somebody. The draft I read was 600+ pages and chock full of gaming goodness.

Hear ye, hear ye! The King is dead! Long live the King!

(This is my contribution to Mike & Liz’s November RPG Blog Carnival topic over at Nearly Enough Dice (great podcast btw!)… Gunpowder, Treason, and Plots!

Supplement Review: Tome of Twisted Things from Little Red Goblin Games

Though I have played a fair share of D&D 3.5e, I have not played any Pathfinder even if I have read more than a few supplements and adventures written for PFRPG. I typically read PFRPG-themed books for inspiration, looking for great ideas more than anything system-specific.

That brings me to the Tome of Twisted Things . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Tome of Twisted Things from Little Red Goblin Games

The Gassy Gnoll sometimes loses track of time. You know how it is. The world just keeps spinning, we get locked into our little routines, and forget to do the simple things. Like spending time with the mini-Gnolls.
