Genesys Character Creation: C0-LE

I recently signed up for a Play-By-Post game online using Genesys by Fantasy Flight Games. We are going to be playing in the Android campaign setting. FFG and WotC put out several games over the years (boardgames or card games) called either Android or Netrunner for this IP. It is meant to be a Cyberpunk […]

Baldur’s Gate – Descent into Avernus

I want to preface this review by saying that of all the 5E releases to date, this is the one I was anticipating the most. I have been pumped for Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus, from DAY ONE! DAY ONE SON! Yet my expectations for Descent changed multiple times from announcement to release. When the […]

Baldur’s Gate, Part 2 – Heroes of Baldur’s Gate

Heroes of Baldur’s Gate was a huge surprise to me when it came out. Maybe I was just out of the loop. This adventure came out in 2019 from one of the writers of Dragon Age: Origins. It draws heavily from the Baldur’s Gate video games. Heroes takes place at the same time roughly a […]

Baldur’s Gate, Part 1 – Murder in Baldur’s Gate

Those of you who follow my Twitter account may have noticed I am very eager to get my paws on the upcoming D&D 5E hardcover adventure, Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus. I was sold on the concept of a Mad Max inspired sandbox in Hell. I’m getting some Dark Sun vibes from the shattered wasteland, […]

The Origin of PCs

Please forgive me stealing the title of this from Order of the Stick. I was giving some more thought to PCs.  I’ve been a player in hardcover adventure playing group for over a year now.  I seem to have a bad habit of playing the PC I should have played in the last adventure.  Or […]

The D&D Version of The Iron Bull

I’m dipping my toes here into Character Creation Speculation.  Every week the Total Party Thrill Podcast creates a new character trying to hit a new archetype.  Sometimes they make character from fiction like Spiderman, sometimes they make a character who fights different, an archer who fights in Melee, or exploit a specific rule like how […]

Acquisitions Incorporated

I have been an Acquisitions Incorporated fan since the beginning.  I was into Penny Arcade and PVP for about 5 years, 4th Edition D&D got announced, and then they bring on these guys to play D&D and then they release the recording.  And it was funny!  And interesting!  They did three podcasts before moving to […]

The Dark Tower Novels

It would not be anywhere approaching accurate or just to think I can pass judgement on the Dark Tower series as a whole.  What follows is the briefest of summaries on the seven novels by Stephen King that make up The Dark Tower.  I would recommend you read the series but if you don’t care […]

Dark Sun: The Vault of Darom Madar

I wrote in a previous post that I’d like to prep a series of “backpocket” adventures for days when my home group is unavailable.  Get some published adventures, prep them, then put them on a flash drive for a rainy day.  Since we’re always doing Forgotten Realms, I figured go for Eberron, Dark Sun, and […]
