The Gassy Gnoll: Top 10 Quick Gift Ideas for Gamers

The Gassy Gnoll is in full holiday insanity mode here at Gnoll Central, which means he’s thinking about what gifts to pick up for his fuzzy loved ones, what’s on his wish list, and who the heck he should “give” the business end of a polearm, axe, or sword the next time he sees them. . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Top 10 Quick Gift Ideas for Gamers

The Gassy Gnoll: Rules Schmules

The Gassy Gnoll is not a rules guy. Never has been. Sure, maybe there were a few moments around a table in 1982 or 1983 with my original gamer friends in junior high school where we’d argue over this or that from the Dungeon Master’s Guide or the Player’s Handbook. Sure, sometimes it becomes more . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Rules Schmules

The Gassy Gnoll: Mapping Player and GM Worlds

Ok. Next time you get a chance to experiment a bit with your gaming group, I’d like you to try this… Have the GM draw a map of the world and then have each player draw a map of the world. Want to bet they look a wee bit different?

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 . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Reviews from Elsewhere (13-DEC-2012)

Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming (7-DEC-2012)

Yes, I’m a bit behind on these. My apologies. Unfortunately the stomach flu knocked everybody at my house out for a few days. Thankfully, we have all rebounded nicely. ๐Ÿ™‚

That said, it’s time for some new links don’t you think?!

Because I’m a few days behind, these ten “links” are overflowing so we’ll see . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming (7-DEC-2012)

Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links (24-NOV-2012)

Welcome to the next chapter of the Friday Knight News, arranged a bit differently.

This week, as you might have guessed from not seeing a post on Friday, the weekly news post was pushed from Friday to Saturday. I took Friday off to enjoy with my family and get my ducks in a row after . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links (24-NOV-2012)

The Gassy Gnoll: On Being Out of Practice… DMing in a Modern Age

This gassy old gnoll has been playing role-playing games for three decades. And in that time, he’s run a lot of games. D&D, Palladium Fantasy (1st Edition), Ninjas and Superspies, James Bond 007, and many others. But do you know what he’s run recently? Nothing.

OK, that’s not exactly true. About a year ago I . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: On Being Out of Practice… DMing in a Modern Age

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

Sometimes the disagreements are with the GM, but usually it was with other players. And some of my least favorite of those have been when I have had . . . → Read More: Book Review: The GM’s Field Guide to Players by Cherie “Jade” Arbuckle from rpgGM.COM

Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 17-AUG-2012

Is it possible for weeks to be *too* busy? Between work, my daughters (back to school this week plus a big multi-day soccer tournament this weekend), and my wife (a million miles an hour in 10 directions), I think I may pull the rest of my hair out. *sigh*

Enough whining though, because Gen Con . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 17-AUG-2012
