Adventures in 5e, The Actual Session

In the last two articles we’ve talked about character creation and module prep… now let’s get into how the actual play session went!

Quite honestly, I wasn’t sure how this adventure was going to go. In the last two years when we’ve done our holiday game with the kids we’ve done a more traditional dungeon . . . → Read More: Adventures in 5e, The Actual Session

Adventures in 5e, Overview and Character Generation

Those of you who know me know that I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons for a very long time. I started in 1982 and have played every edition along the way, though I was a little late to the party at times. I resisted 4e for a long time, though have a good time playing . . . → Read More: Adventures in 5e, Overview and Character Generation

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)

Happy Holidays!

Though the Game Knight and the Gassy Gnoll are taking a bit of time off over the holidays to spend with family and friends, Game Knight Reviews isn’t going anywhere. We shall return in the new year with more reviews, more opinions, and who knows what else.

Supplement Review: Dungeon Crawl Classics #66.5: Doom of the Savage Kings by Harley Stroh from Goodman Games

The Old School movement and Dungeon Crawl Classics have produced some of my favorite adventures of late. There’s something especially freeing about the wanton destruction of beginning adventurers. And why should they make any apologies for weeding out the would-be’s and the has-beens from the tally of real heroes?

The Gassy Gnoll: Where are we again? (Location, Location, Location – RPG Blog Carnival)

This month’s blog carnival was kicked off by Mike Bourke @ Campaign Mastery and I have to say it’s a doozy. Though “Location, Location, Location” may have originated in the real estate industry, it works amazingly well for fictional pursuits as well. Whether you’re designing a RPG campaign or writing a novel, you can’t go . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Where are we again? (Location, Location, Location – RPG Blog Carnival)

The Gassy Gnoll: Travel Troubles

This Gassy Gnoll had some travel troubles this past weekend. A belt broke, shredding my radiator among other juicy bits in the engine compartment. Made for an interesting drive home. But we did make it home. And after a large bill at the mechanic yesterday, the beast runs again.

But it got me thinking about . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Travel Troubles

The Gassy Gnoll: Aging Heroes

As this Gassy Gnoll enters his mid-40s, he finds himself undergoing a curious transformation. Over the last 7 months he has engaged in *gasp* physical exercise and a change in diet and is probably in the best shape he’s been in since his late teens, if not the best shape he’s ever been in. And . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Aging Heroes

Supplement Review: A0: Crow’s Rest Island from AdventureAWeek.com

Yes, I’m more than a bit behind on reviews, but I keep chugging along. This past weekend I had an opportunity to check out A0: Crow’s Rest island from Adventure A Week (AdventureAWeek.com). I’ve been meaning to check their stuff out for nearly a year now, but didn’t have a chance until I received this . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: A0: Crow’s Rest Island from AdventureAWeek.com

The Gassy Gnoll: The Road in the Darkness

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to be able to take a bit of time to head to the mountains with my family. We left late in the afternoon on Friday and were going over a mountain pass I’ve driven or ridden over regularly in the daylight. By the time we got there, night . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: The Road in the Darkness
