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

Game Review: Fortune’s Fool by Jay Stratton and Pantheon Press

Let’s face it, I’m an old-school gamer for the most part. I like rolling dice to resolve actions no matter which side of the GM screen I’m on and regardless of whether fate chooses to be kind or cruel.
