Eberron: Boromar Ball

Boromar Ball is the third Adventurer’s League adventure set in the Eberron campaign setting.  I gave a negative review to the first release, What’s Past is Prologue. Based on the weakness of that adventure I decided to wait on picking up the second adventure, Murder in Skyway.  But this was one I really wanted.  I […]

Running Shadowrun in Fantasy Flight’s Genesys

A few years ago I started reading about Shadowrun.  Probably the most prominent of the “cyberpunk” genre of TTRPGs it also blends in fantasy as well.  The setting lore is a fun read.  The game though… Shadowrun 5th Edition is a rat’s nest of options and rules and granular details that just do not add […]

So far so good.  You get a sense that there is definitely a vibrant and large city here to work with.  I like city games, they’re tough to run but they can be very fun.  I’m not crazy about the breadcrumbs trail thing where each bar/shop we go to has someone we ask about the […]

Again let’s […]

Savitri the Knowledge Cleric

My eyes now turn to making a character for Dragon Heist. A while back I played in a one shot game set in Ravenloft.  I decided to play a Halfling Knowledge Cleric.  I had a few reasons for this.  One, I didn’t know these guys and no group has ever turned away a cleric.  Two, […]

Dragon Age Campaign – 3 Sessions In

I have started a new Dragon Age campaign.  This is the Green Ronin ruleset for the Thedas setting.  I set out to lovingly rip-off Curse of Strahd with a trip to the Fade.  But today, three sessions in and over a month since I initially met these folks, I took a step back and saw […]
