It’s a Good Day to Die

One of the trickier things to handle in a campaign is a player’s character death. Over many years of roleplaying, I’ve had my share of character deaths. Not being a computer game, there is no reload/respawn point for the character. If the system has it set up, you can get the character resurrected from the . . . → Read More: It’s a Good Day to Die

My Name Is …

So Fitz has been hounding me for years about doing something more with gaming than just watch the world go by. Given that you read Fitz’s blog (here or over at Moebius Adventures), you probably already have seen a comment or few dozen by me over the last few years.

The Gassy Gnoll: State Your Intentions

The Gassy Gnoll: Zen Gaming (Gaming Unplugged 2014)

What is gaming to you? How do you define that experience for yourself? How do you define it for others? Is it possible to share your experience? Or is it only possible to share in *THE* experience?

These are all questions that have come to mind after watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty on . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Zen Gaming (Gaming Unplugged 2014)

The Gassy Gnoll: A Cult Above

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?

The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I had an opportunity to continue a D&D 4e adventure we started a year ago. With this particular group, we have now met three times in 12 months and only worked through about 2/3 of the dungeon so far. But that’s not the fun part…

The fun part is that the . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

The Gassy Gnoll: Too Many Santas (A Growing Glut of Gaming Kickstarters)

The Gassy Gnoll has recently discovered a disturbing trend. His piles are growing. And yes, some things I’ve purchased or received from publishers seeking reviews, but the biggest pile seems to be of the products showing up from Kickstarters. Some of these items have been months in the making. Others seem to show up as . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Too Many Santas (A Growing Glut of Gaming Kickstarters)

The Gassy Gnoll: Happy Trails (Horsemanship Skills)

The Gassy Gnoll may be a seasoned adventurer, but his alter ego, Fitz, is more of a traditional scholar. He has little practical knowledge, a good amount of book-smarts, and the dexterity of a dead buffalo suffering from rigormortis. So when Fitz’s wife proposed going horseback riding in the mountains, he outwardly said “sure honey, . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Happy Trails (Horsemanship Skills)

Interview: Brian Cooper from QuestKick.com

Recently I was contacted by Brian Cooper about his new web application for game masters called QuestKick.com. What is it? What’s it about? I decided to ask Brian a few questions to figure that out!

Sure. I have . . . → Read More: Interview: Brian Cooper from QuestKick.com

The Gassy Gnoll – The Nature of Nature

Peace and quiet. It’s something this Gassy Gnoll doesn’t get much of these days. It might be that his family is running a million miles an hour in different directions. It might be that he himself his spread a wee bit thin on a few fronts. But either way it’s a rare occurrence.
