Wow… that’s been quite a year. 2008 marked my first full year as a RPG blogger. It was also a year filled with amazing achievements and some humbling realizations. I intially wanted to review last year’s objectives but after agonizing over that post for 2 days I decided to drop it and take another tack. […]

Today is the last day for the latest RPG Blog Carnival about “Transitions and Transformations” before UncleBear takes over . So if you want to get an entry into this month’s carnival, you want to do it today and leave a comment on the post. And even if you have written an entry for the carnival, […]
If you’re not inspired by some part of this, there’s just no getting through to you. Extra points given for using one of my all-time favorite geek epic speeches that is underquoted: Picard’s “The line must be drawn here!” speech from First Contact.
See part one here. After some discussions, the party set out for Thunderspire Mountain. I described what Fizban (eleven Wizard) knew about it since we established that he had visited it before in his researches. That’s when I gave the players a rundown on the setting’s background: Old Minotaur city now called the Labyrinth, denizens […]

This week New Years is on Thursday, and no doubt many people will be taking part in the renewing tradition of setting New Years Resolutions. I’ve set very few of them in my life, and of those I don’t think I’ve ever fulfilled one but at least I set my goals high, right? Okay, maybe not. Whether you set them or not, and if you live up to them or not, the fact that you’re reading this means there is one important resolution that you DO have set.
Heya all, I more or less expected to stop playing from late November until mid January. However, by a strange coincidence, we all (i.e. the 6 players and myself) managed to be free on December 19th! Joy! Warming up with the Band! Some of the group made it to Math’s early enough so we could […]
Chatty DM: Here’s Part 3 of Wyatt’s wordilicious series on playing RPG through text interfaces online. I wish to thank him warmly for stepping in when I needed the break! Hey there, this is Wyatt Salazar, your DJ for the night, and as we have done before (and before) we will talk online gaming! Now […]
It’s Christmas Eve already and I’m running around with my little family. Since all our parents are divorced, we must show up to 4 different places in a very restricted ammount of time. We don’t mind, because that’s what the season is about. So while I catch my breath for a few minutes, I want […]
I’ve come to the realization that encumberance rules bug me. There are several paradigms that I’ve run into, but all of them have their issues.
