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 […]

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 […]

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

If this had been released after the 2014 Godzilla movie I likely would’ve passed on this one.  But Skull Island was quite possibly my favorite movie the year of its release.  King of the Monsters is nowhere near the magic of Skull Island but I was still entertained through it.  It’s an excuse to throw […]

Dragon Age Recap

In addition to my long ass post speculating on where to take my Dragon Age campaign I thought people might also be curious about where we’ve been up to this point.  Here is an abbreviated campaign recap.  I wrote this a while ago so there is some overlap with the last post. Near the start […]

Dragon Age: Season Finale and the Way Forward

Lotta people interested in me taking a walk to think about my Dragon Age game.  Thanks @slyflourish! Dragon AGE has largely supplanted D&D as my primary tabletop RPG over the course of the 9 months after my D&D group finished Tomb of Annihilation.  I got into TOA because I was feeling burned out on DMing […]

Avengers: Endgame

Like the rest of humanity apparently I went and saw Endgame this weekend. It was ok.  All these movies good to some extent.  Even the ones people like less aren’t bad.  For these movies this was fine. I was initially hostile towards Infinity War because you knew they were going to undo it.  Black Panther […]

Mad Mage – The Bardic Set List

Last session of Mad Mage went a lot better.  We found the stairs which gave us our sixth level milestone then we decided to keep exploring Dungeon Level.  I would be okay not doing that but I’m okay for now.  I didn’t even get to use Extra Attack but I feel better about my character.  6th […]
