Ten Links in the Chain: Reviews from Elsewhere (13-DEC-2012)

Welcome to another Ten Links post, this time focused on what I’ll call “Reviews from Elsewhere” – all the great reviews from other sites scattered across the Internet.

(1) Even as D&D Next inches closer (it’s still a ways off), 4e Still Raises Hackles

So it appears the edition wars are still in full swing and . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Reviews from Elsewhere (13-DEC-2012)

Friday Knight News – X-COM Gaming Edition: 12-OCT-2012

Welcome to another Friday and another news roundup!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get lost in games other than tabletop RPGs. Blasphemous, I know. The last one was Skyrim. I lost hours and days playing that. But long before the Elder Scrolls, I was addicted to X-COM: UFO Defense from Microprose. I may have . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – X-COM Gaming Edition: 12-OCT-2012

The Gassy Gnoll: Shifting Magical Paradigms Without a Clutch

Last week the Gassy Gnoll asked why 4e spell powers are so cut and dried. This week he wants to throw the D&D magic system out the window in favor of something much more open…

Right now you create a wizard, pick a few powers, and run. All the powers work generally the same, using . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Shifting Magical Paradigms Without a Clutch

The Gassy Gnoll: Making Magic Missile Mine

The Gassy Gnoll is not a huge fan of magic users. Fireball sounds great in theory until you smell all that singed hair. But *his* alter ego has always enjoyed playing wizards ever since starting to play D&D back in 1982. [Shudder.] And though I may be a bit gray at the muzzle, but that . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Making Magic Missile Mine

Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 21-SEP-2012

About Wednesday afternoon I was wondering if this week would ever end… And now here we are at Friday! We made it! Hooray!

Ok, now that the hooting and hollering is over, I’m just going to cut to the chase… It was a busy week here at GKR and cool things are afoot for the . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 21-SEP-2012

Friday Knight News – Independence Edition: 6-JUL-2012

Weeks with national holidays smack dab in the middle always throw me for a loop. Many of us were off on Wednesday in the US for our 4th of July celebrations across the country. So I worked the first couple of days of the week and will work the last two days of the week… . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – Independence Edition: 6-JUL-2012

Strong-Arm Tactics: Why You Don’t Need to Play D&D Next

There is a lot of buzz about Dungeons and Dragons Next. At the same time it is both a source of intangible hope and possibility and very concrete and malleable piece of gaming design. The players and game masters have been invited to weigh in on its construction, to offer feedback and input, to help . . . → Read More: Strong-Arm Tactics: Why You Don’t Need to Play D&D Next

Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 8-JUN-2012

Given a choice, this issue of Friday Knight News might be called the “Promethean” edition given that Ridley Scott‘s Alien-derived-yet-new-universe in Prometheus hits theaters here in the States today. Though my daughters would prefer I somehow worked Madagascar into the mix (“I got to move it, move it…”)… But I decided we’d just stick with . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 8-JUN-2012

Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 1-JUN-2012

I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record in these things, but June!!?! Where the heck did May go?

But now’s the time when students eye all-day or all-night game sessions as summer break comes into view. I remember those days fondly – losing entire weekends at a friend’s house (thanks to Jayson . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 1-JUN-2012

The Gassy Gnoll: To Sleep– Perchance to Get Back My Dailies…

Sleep. It’s something this gnoll will get less and less of as the temperatures rise. Too much fur I guess… traps the heat and there’s only so many layers to strip off before you’re embarrassed to death or arrested.

But my drowsy state has raised an interesting point in my muddled mind. Have you noticed . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: To Sleep– Perchance to Get Back My Dailies…
