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

Supplement Review: Tome of Twisted Things from Little Red Goblin Games

Though I have played a fair share of D&D 3.5e, I have not played any Pathfinder even if I have read more than a few supplements and adventures written for PFRPG. I typically read PFRPG-themed books for inspiration, looking for great ideas more than anything system-specific.

That brings me to the Tome of Twisted Things . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Tome of Twisted Things from Little Red Goblin Games

Before I get going with the day’s links, I want to share why I’ve been gone for a while this week and why that trend will more than likely continue next week…

Yes! I’m back exploring the huge tome of the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game from Goodman Games.

Creighton’s Corner: What’s A Campaign Anyway?

Last time we talked about taking a moment to think about what you and your players want to get out of a game. Armed with this knowledge, the GM can start to think about what kind of campaign to actually run.

A campaign can take many forms and it is a very good idea for . . . → Read More: Creighton’s Corner: What’s A Campaign Anyway?

Publisher Interview: Christopher Merwin of BlackStar Games

Back in October 2011, I caught wind of the Shadowlands Epic Fantasy Sci-Fi Mashup project at Kickstarter. When I checked out the project page, I was impressed by the art, the descriptions, and most of all the new approach to a fantasy RPG setting. Well, maybe not “new” new – Expedition to the Barrier Peaks . . . → Read More: Publisher Interview: Christopher Merwin of BlackStar Games

Setting Review: The Shadow Vale Player’s Guide by Alyssa Faden and Torn World

World design is the proverbial rabbit hole many of us fall into as gamers. I have started down many a winding road only to get lost in the ebb and flow of heroes, nations, and continents… Long story short, it’s hard to get right and I have many worlds that haven’t translated to paper and . . . → Read More: Setting Review: The Shadow Vale Player’s Guide by Alyssa Faden and Torn World

Supplement Review: Caves & Caverns (PFRPG) by Creighton Broadhurst and David Posener from Raging Swan Press

Just about every fantasy campaign I’ve ever played in has involved a cave system or cavern at one time or another. And though I’m a fan of dungeons, I really like it when there’s more of a natural element to them. The “Five Room Dungeon” technique I first learned about in Johnn Four’s Roleplaying Tips . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Caves & Caverns (PFRPG) by Creighton Broadhurst and David Posener from Raging Swan Press

The Gassy Gnoll: Book Bloat

The Gassy Gnoll has come to an odd realization recently. He doesn’t like book bloat.

What is “book bloat” you ask?

Way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I started playing AD&D 1st edition in 1982. The first book I had was the 128-page hardcover Player’s Handbook (PHB). It was 128 pages offering everything I . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Book Bloat

Supplement Review: RPG Creatures – Bestiary 1 by Nicholas Cloister and Cloister Publications

Monsters. They’re a staple in tabletop RPGs and regardless of the genre or setting, it’s always fun to get inspiration from different sources. Whether you prefer yours to come from fairy tales, myths and legends, popular fiction, outer space, other planes, or the evening news, there are plenty of places for ideas.
