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 […]

Mad Mage – Dungeon Level

This is part calling myself out and part review of Dungeon of the Mad Mage.  We recently concluded I think our 6th Session and I thought it was time to put words to screen about how I was feeling in order to learn more about myself and get better at running my own games. There […]

Mad Mage Backup Characters

We are now 4 sessions into Dungeon of the Mad Mage.  It’s a little slow paced but I’m hoping it will pickup as we get past this first level, which according to Enworld is named, “Dungeon Level.”  As opposed to later parts with names like “Arcturiadoom.” When we started these two books I resolved to […]

Faces of Thedas

At long last a day is here.  They announced the next D&D Hardcover Adventure, you ask?  NO YOU FOOL.  Faces of Thedas, the next (Last? Only?) splatbook for Green Ronin’s Dragon Age RPG has arrived.  At least in PDF form.  Still gotta wait a bit for the dead tree edition. For those interested in the […]

Dragon Heist: Post-Play Review

When I heard “urban heist adventure” I was signed the hell up.  Now Dragon Heist is over.  I played it and now I have read it. I wanted to like this adventure.  After playing it I came away with a hostile bias. I found it a parade of NPCs handing you things and not enough […]

Savitri: The Final Form

A few years ago I ran a Dark Sun campaign for 4th Edition D&D. It was a good campaign, one with plenty of maps and ideas I would reuse if I ever ran Dark Sun again.  But there was one thing about it that drove me up the wall.  One player, every 3-5 sessions, would […]


When I left the theater and got into my car I felt I wasn’t going to write anything.  15 minutes later here we are. Main reason I thought I’d give this one a pass is because 15 minutes later I am struggling to remember what the hell actually happened during Aquaman.  I actually did not […]

Eberron: Curtain Call & Dragon Age

At the urging of a friend and in my somewhat desperate hunger for more human contact I started a 2nd Dragon Age game with the intent of trying to make it a new show on the Encounter RP Twitch channel.  Encounter RP put out a call on Twitter for shows, I sent in a pitch, […]

Eberron: Blades of Terror

“Blades of Terror” is the 7th of the 12 Eberron adventures being released as a series.  The adventures together make up an adventure path titled, “Embers of the Last War.” I was not thrilled with the previous two adventures I purchased, “What’s Past is Prologue” and “Boromar Ball.”  I thought Prologue was bad, and Boromar […]

The Red War

Boy this is a great title.  Screw Relics of Khundrukar, I like the short declarative title.  THE IRON BARON.  And now, THE RED WAR. I cannot believe it was almost two years ago that I started running these Epics.  I also recall with bitter sweetness how the good people of Gamer’s Vault kicked my inexperienced […]
