Playing in my Sandbox

A while ago, Paizo decided to continue what TSR started with Dungeon magazine and publish dedicated Adventure Path’s which are essentially 6 installments of a campaign that would take you from first level to around 15th level (give or take some levels depending on how it goes). From the outside looking in, it looks like . . . → Read More: Playing in my Sandbox

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

Ten Links in the Chain: Kickstarter (21-DEC-2012)

Happy Mayan Apocalypse Day! Or if you rather, Happy Winter Solstice Day! If neither of those work, we can go with a simple Happy Holidays and leave it at that. 🙂

Fiction Review: The Hole Behind Midnight by Clinton J. Boomer

Yes, I know this is a game review blog for the most part, but The Hole Behind Midnight would have far-reaching game potential even if it hadn’t been written by someone who’s been writing, making short films, and working in the RPG industry for a while.

But let’s back up for a moment. What the . . . → Read More: Fiction Review: The Hole Behind Midnight by Clinton J. Boomer

Supplement Review: Divine Favor: The Druid by Stefen Styrsky from Open Design

Druids. I tried to play one in the last D&D 3.5e campaign I was in, but it never clicked with me. I couldn’t shake the feeling that a druid should be more of a solitary “keeper of the grove” kind of character for some reason.

Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly, Spring 2011 Issue 17

When I received the latest Kobold Quarterly, I have to say I had to take a good hard look at the cover. There’s a lot going on in this painting by Allison Theus.
