Supplement Review: d30 Sandbox Companion by Richard J. LeBlanc, Jr. for New Big Dragon Games Unlimited

It’s been a long while now since I GM’ed regularly, but when I did I tended towards big, wide-open sandbox campaigns.

Supplement Review: AL1: Bone Hoard of the Dancing Horror by Daniel J. Bishop from Purple Duck Games

If it’s one thing the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game has inspired, it’s going back to what I remember about many of the original modules for D&D… Gritty, gruesome dungeon crawls where you were never quite sure if your characters were daring or mentally challenged for walking in the front door in the first . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: AL1: Bone Hoard of the Dancing Horror by Daniel J.

Supplement Review: Achtung! Cthulhu: The Trellborg Monstrosities by John Houlihan for Modiphius Entertainment

When you think of H.P. Lovecraft, what do you think of? For me, it’s his story “At the Mountains of Madness,” which forever merges Antarctica and Cthulhu in my mind. So I have to say I became a little giddy when I heard that Chris Birch and the talented crew Achtung! Cthulhu were tackling that . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Achtung!

Supplement Review: Shadowlands: The Gates of Tarina Adventure Module by Jaye Sonia and Ben Cacchione from BlackStar Studios

Have you noticed how memorable movies and television programs use catchphrases to sometimes drive home key points?

Supplement Review: Appendix N Adventure Toolkit: The Treacherous Cobtraps by Jimm Johnson from Brave Halfling Publishing

Spiders. They freak out some of the nicest people (including my youngest daughter). So I’m always happy to see them get top billing in a game supplement. Jimm Johnson and the rest of the crew at Brave Halfling Publishing have done just that with The Treacherous Cobtraps. The third in the Appendix N series, this . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Appendix N Adventure Toolkit: The Treacherous Cobtraps by Jimm Johnson from Brave Halfling Publishing

Supplement Review: The Vile Worm by Jimm Johnson and Jeff Lynk from Brave Halfling Publishing

So once you’ve killed broken in a few 0-level DCC RPG characters via The Ruins of Ramat from Brave Halfling Publishing, why stop there?

The Gassy Gnoll: GMs, We Salute You! (RPG Blog Carnival)

It was GM’s Day this week and the blog carnival topic is about “Epic Moments of GMing” so it must be time to talk about GMing! But what can I say?

Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: The Raven’s Call by Wolfgang Baur and Kobold Press

First level adventures are always a tricky thing to pull off. Do you go easy on a new wave of heroes? Do you smack the new heroes around a bit? Do you up the ante and make it possible for a TPK?

Well, honestly I think all of those possibilities are up to the combination . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: The Raven’s Call by Wolfgang Baur and Kobold Press
