Supplement Review: Divine Favor: The Paladin (PFRPG) by Stefen Styrsky for Open Design

Paladins were always a bit of a strange beast when I was playing a ton of D&D as a kid.

Supplement Review: LaCroix: A Torn World Character Pack by Jack Cull and Torn World Publishing

Elves live what seems like forever in most RPGs. Yet unless we have elven PCs, we rarely encounter an individual elf more than a few times in a campaign, and never see the effects of age over decades and centuries. We may encounter a young elf, an elf in middle-age, or an elderly elf, but . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: LaCroix: A Torn World Character Pack by Jack Cull and Torn World Publishing

The Gassy Gnoll: Re-publishing Oddness

It’s a given that there will be some weirdness every day, regardless of whether it’s in the gaming community or not.

Tools Review: Dingle’s Games Generators

It could be said that I’m a sucker for a random generator. But over the years, through trial, error, and trying my own hand at various tools, I’ve come to realize that not all generators are equal. That hasn’t stopped me from checking out new tools as they come to my attention.

That said, when . . . → Read More: Tools Review: Dingle’s Games Generators

Book Review: Assassin’s Amulet by Michael K. Tumey, Mike Bourke, and Johnn Four from Roleplaying Tips, Part 2

The Gassy Gnoll: Another Adventure with D&D 4e

It’s strange, but the Gassy Gnoll is happy. Ok, maybe it’s not that strange. Like many infants, the Gassy Gnoll smiles when he releases his noxious fumes into the atmosphere. But why does it seem strange? He’s been without a gaming group for months now and he seems to have finally found a new group!
