Free RPG day 2018

Well, another year, and another opportunity missed. I really need to start getting ahead and planning these things. I missed International Tabletop day too. I have a habit of missing these things. I think I've only ever played a game on exactly one of those days. I might have once managed to play a board game … Continue reading Free RPG day 2018

Immortal Emperor

Back when I started in college, I played in a 3rd ed D&D game set in a pseudo-Rome with an immortal emperor. We'd been sent off to the far north/fake Rheinland to help defend against Cthulhuesque monsters, and then we'd headed across a southern ocean towards a version of Alexandria. We were about to explore … Continue reading Immortal Emperor

Back to the Endless Sea

This might be the last of my Endless Sea posts for now. I've more or less established all the facts I need to run a game, except for an adventure.

It's a really great read. … Continue reading The Tao of Bill Murray – for gamers

I've since wanted to go back and rewrite that piece, make it closer to how I want it to be. I probably … Continue reading Razir – a continuation

Don’t call it a comeback

Because that would be far too premature! It's been about 18 months since I've posted anything to this blog, and maybe a year since I feel like I've written anything meaningful. But there's still the constant buzz in my head of ideas, I'm just a bit crap at bothering to write them down anywhere!   … Continue reading Don’t call it a comeback

Three month gap

So it's been almost three months since my last blog post. I'm really terrible at keeping these things going sometimes. I am resolving to kick this back into gear though. So, what's going on? Playing through the Lost Mines of Phandelvar adventure for D&D 5E with my usual group. And I'm PLAYING, not DMing, which … Continue reading Three month gap
