Publisher Interview: William C. Pfaff of Escape Velocity Gaming

Way back in May, I was contacted by Bill Pfaff of Escape Velocity Gaming and he asked if I’d review his book – Baba Yaga: Queen of the Wicked Fens. How could I refuse? Baba Yaga managed to leave a lasting impression on me way back when I started playing AD&D 1st Edition, so I . . . → Read More: Publisher Interview: William C. Pfaff of Escape Velocity Gaming

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? Is it the creation . . . → Read More: News from Around the Net: 04-NOV-2011

Supplement Review: WCP’s Monstrous Garage, Volume 1 by William C. Pfaff from Escape Velocity Gaming

Ever felt like customizing a monster? Taking a look under the hood to see what makes it tick? Or perhaps you’ve thought a particular monster is too powerful or not powerful enough for a particular encounter? I’ve usually handled this in my games by making the monsters a tad more intelligent than they might have . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: WCP’s Monstrous Garage, Volume 1 by William C.

Somehow with the Libyans finally catching Moammar Gadhafi I’m contemplating monsters this week. Sometimes it’s not the biggest, baddest creatures who are the scary ones. It can just as easily be the humans with power mad schemes and insane ambition who are the scariest. That said, if Gadhafi had a pet dragon and flew around . . . → Read More: News from Around the Net: 21-OCT-2011 (Sponsored by Escape Velocity Gaming)

Supplement Review: Incredible Insects, Volume 1 by William C. Pfaff and Esape Velocity Gaming

Have you ever stopped to consider how outnumbered we are as a species on planet Earth… by insects? Sure, each of us may take out a few during our lifetimes with judicious hand slaps, foot stomps, bug sprays, bug zappers, and so on… But did you know it’s estimated that insects make up 80% of . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Incredible Insects, Volume 1 by William C.

Happy Friday!

This has been a long week, but a productive one – at work anyway. This weekend I’ll actually be in Las Vegas, Nevada, for a mini-vacation with some friends of mine from high school, so I can guarantee I won’t be getting much done. But hopefully I’ll be having a good time doing . . . → Read More: News from Around the Net: 23-SEP-2011 (Sponsored by Escape Velocity Gaming)

This week we had our first taste of Autumn weather in Colorado Springs. I expect the leaves to start changing and snow to start collecting on Pikes Peak soon. And all that is fine because Fall is one of my favorite times of year. Plus, with all the rain we got this week my yard . . . → Read More: News from Around the Net: 16-SEP-11 (Sponsored by Escape Velocity Gaming)

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

Book Review: City Slices 1: Marketplace Fun by William C. Pfaff from Escape Velocity Gaming

Most towns and cities in fantasy roleplaying game settings are busy hubs of activity. Rarely do people make any coin by sitting on their duffs all day. Instead, people are rushing around collecting raw materials, manufacturing those goods, and then selling them in the marketplace. The nobility are the exception to the rule, spending their . . . → Read More: Book Review: City Slices 1: Marketplace Fun by William C. Pfaff from Escape Velocity Gaming

Book Review: Baba Yaga: Queen of the Wicked Fens by William C. Pfaff and Escape Velocity Gaming

Baba Yaga. Vecna. Mordenkainen. Bigby. Leomund. Tenser. These names might be familiar to you if you have played 1st edition Dungeons & Dragons at some point (or later versions in some cases). Each name reminds me of hours spent scouring dungeons for rare magical items, scrolls, and enemy spell books. As you too might have . . . → Read More: Book Review: Baba Yaga: Queen of the Wicked Fens by William C. Pfaff and Escape Velocity Gaming
