Thor: Ragnarok

So I finally got around to seeing Thor 3.  This one is getting universally good reviews so you’ve probably seen it already.  Thor was my favorite of the initial Marvel character movies and I would still rank it very high. I came away from Ragnarok very disappointed. The cold open of this movie really sets […]

Fantasy Age

While I was at PAX Unplugged I picked up the Fantasy AGE book from Green Ronin’s booth.  I doubt Chris Pramas remembers selling me the Song of Ice & Fire Hardcover 6 years ago in North Carolina but it was cool to see him again.  Fantasy Age is the generic version of the rules for […]

Tando the AL Mastermind

As I copy-pasted from my last post, I kind of like the idea of making a sort of meta-aware True Neutral character that realizes they can’t affect the world.  Join the Harpers and treat it like the Circle of Eight.  The Circle of Eight are 9 powerful wizards from the Greyhawk campaign setting.  They are […]

PAX Unplugged and Adventurer’s League Brainstorm

So I got back from PAX Unplugged and wanted to share some thoughts with you.  I should start by saying this entry is going to be heavy of the self-exploration of my psyche and I almost never go to conventions for reasons I’ll explain. I did not really enjoy myself at PAX Unplugged.  I did […]

A Cleric in Ravenloft: Beyond Good and Evil

So last afternoon/night/early this morning I brought my Halfling Knowledge Cleric to a new group for a game of set in Ravenloft.  It was a damn good game.  I was not expecting it to go for about 11 hours.  I once had a game go far later than expected to about 2 in the morning.  […]

I Made a Knowledge Cleric

The People behind the Dragon Age game I’m currently in invited me to join their just starting Level 1 Ravenloft game.  Is this what happens when your normal DM fix fizzles?  You start joining multiple games that comes along to prove how much you don’t need them while pining for them to come back? Like […]

Dragon Age Roll20 Game, Session 4

Another really good session, this is a good group I have lucked into.  We dealt with the fallout of darkspawn attacking the Orlesian Tournament.  It’s still not clear why The Chantry was so gung ho to get their guy Bann Dragwood to this contest but I have not forgotten that is why we had to […]

Blade Runner: 2049 – The First Cut

I normally write these as soon as I get home from the theater.  I don’t check out any other reviews.  Usually I post my first draft and come back to it in a few hours or a day and then make edits.  For Blade Runner 2049 I waited and checked out some other reviews.  Specifically […]

Dragon Age – Session 3 & GMing Advice

The third session of our Dragon Age RPG (Rules by Green Ronin) is complete.  This is a group I found on Roll 2o and I really like them. After trekking from Denerim to Orlais last session we reached this Grand Tournament.  I joined an impromptu “after dark” archery contest among the Elf servants.  I was […]

Dragon Age Ranting and Other Stuff

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m currently in a Dragon Age game.  It is a good game.  My normal exercise in DMing is on hiatus and I need a fix.  More than that, I need to recharge my creative batteries.  This does however lead to excessive comparison between this RPG and D&D 5E […]
