Interview: Chris Littler of Chamber Band

From the title alone, you probably realized this isn’t a normal kind of article for Game Knight Reviews. This is the first music interview on the site and for one very good reason. Chamber Band’s debut album, Deities, is chock full of D&D. Yes, you read that right. 🙂

Friday Knight News – Summer Olympics Edition: 3-AUG-2012

Where did July go? It seemed to zip by with the power of ten billion butterfly sneezes… That said, my daughters will start the new school year soon, which means my life may yet return to some semblance of “normal” even though I have no idea what that word means. 🙂

Ancient Scroll’s Secret Room: Those Lovely Barbarians

This is an article by my friend, qbany about barbarians clashing with civilized people. It is a story that borders a bit on RPGs but offers some deeper insights into roleplaying barbarians, one of the canonical classes in almost every fantasy RPG.
