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)

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

Supplement Review: Potion Details Generator by Chris Kentlea from Ennead Games

All too often when our characters down a potion in a campaign, it’s done without any fanfare. Poisoned? Down a “Cure Poison” potion. Hurt? Drink some “Cure Light Wounds.” But do we ever really think about what we’re downing? What does it look like? Smell like? Taste like?

The Gassy Gnoll: Cultivating a Beginner Mind (Teach Your Kids to Game Week)

Where were you the first time you were introduced to a role-playing game? What game was it? Could be any game and could have been anywhere. For me, it was Dungeons & Dragons at my friend Jayson’s house on a Saturday afternoon in 1982. I believe I played with Bob, Jayson, Dwight, and Sean quite . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Cultivating a Beginner Mind (Teach Your Kids to Game Week)

The Gassy Gnoll: After-Action Report (Thanksgiving 4e Session)

Last week this gassy old gnoll talked about the prep he was doing to run a 4e game for his family and his best friend’s family the night before Thanksgiving.

The Gassy Gnoll: Got Monsters?

Monster. Such an overused word. How do you define one? Merriam-Webster says a monster is:

An animal or plant of abnormal form or structure or one who deviates from normal or acceptable behavior or character. A threatening force. An animal of strange or terrifying shape or unusually large for its kind. Something “monstrous” such as . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Got Monsters?
