Cards Review: Tavern Cards Kickstarter

Earlier this year, I backed the Tavern Cards Kickstarter from Hannah Lipsky (Swordgleam of Chaotic Shiny fame).

Sometimes you just need a spark to create something on the fly or even if you have plenty of planning time. That one idea, flash of inspiration, or kick in the pants to create an encounter, an adventure, or even a whole campaign around…

And sometimes that spark comes to you by way of a . . . → Read More: Tool Review: Chaotic Shiny’s Problem Mini-Gen

News from Around the Net: 04-NOV-2011

I’m going to start my Friday post off with a question… What is gaming to you? And yes, I’m hoping you’ll leave me some feedback in the form of comments on this one… Is it the gathering of friends around a table to experience an adventure in a world of imagination?

News from Around the Net: 9-SEP-11

Are short weeks more brutal than long ones? Sometimes it sure seems that way!

Part of it must be the somber reminders of 9/11 on it’s 10th anniversary this Sunday. Hard to believe it’s been that long. But it’s something I know I’ll never forget. Some images you just can’t unsee. But it’s fitting that . . . → Read More: News from Around the Net: 9-SEP-11

News from Around the Net: 1-JUL-2011

What? July already? Will somebody please slow down the year? It’s making too much noise as it zips by!

Book Review: Martial Cultures: Arytis from Chaotic Shiny Productions

Every place and people has its own rhyme and reason. Almost from birth we become a part of a community and each has an internal consistency that may be similar to other places and yet remains unique to that context of space and time.

That’s what I love about the Martial Cultures series from Chaotic . . . → Read More: Book Review: Martial Cultures: Arytis from Chaotic Shiny Productions

Book Review: Martial Flavor – Chaotic Shiny Productions

When you look up the word “martial” in the dictionary, most definitions tend towards the use of a few key adjectives – warrior, warlike, or military. So I’d be lying if I said that the Martial Flavors book from Chaotic Shiny Productions focuses on mostly peaceful people. Most of these cultures could be described as . . . → Read More: Book Review: Martial Flavor – Chaotic Shiny Productions
