The Gassy Gnoll: A Cult Above (Repost)

Recently I was chatting with a friend of mine (hey Mike!) and the topic of cults came up. Yes, we have strange conversations. But it made me wonder about them in gaming terms. Should I be using them more often? How are they used well? And how should they be used?

Designer Interview: Brendan Davis of Bedrock Games on Sertorius

Recently I had an opportunity to check out a massive new fantasy RPG from Bedrock Games – Sertorius. And when I say “massive” I don’t mean it lightly. This thing could be used in hand to hand combat and seriously hurt somebody. The draft I read was 600+ pages and chock full of gaming goodness.

Supplement Review: Fantasy Maps by Maciej Zagorski from The Forge Studios

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am a fan of maps. Dungeon maps. World maps. Town maps. Whatever it may be, I’m probably going to go over it with a fine-toothed comb looking for inspiration for a plot, world, or character. Even the smallest maps can offer shiny nuggets to inspire me . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Fantasy Maps by Maciej Zagorski from The Forge Studios

The Gassy Gnoll: Travel Troubles

This Gassy Gnoll had some travel troubles this past weekend. A belt broke, shredding my radiator among other juicy bits in the engine compartment. Made for an interesting drive home. But we did make it home. And after a large bill at the mechanic yesterday, the beast runs again.

But it got me thinking about . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Travel Troubles

The Gassy Gnoll: Aging Heroes

As this Gassy Gnoll enters his mid-40s, he finds himself undergoing a curious transformation. Over the last 7 months he has engaged in *gasp* physical exercise and a change in diet and is probably in the best shape he’s been in since his late teens, if not the best shape he’s ever been in.

The Gassy Gnoll: The Road in the Darkness

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to be able to take a bit of time to head to the mountains with my family. We left late in the afternoon on Friday and were going over a mountain pass I’ve driven or ridden over regularly in the daylight.
