Please note that this post reveals some spoilers about the adventure presented here. A few days ago I was contacted by my good friend Ed who wanted to start another round of blog and podcasts posts about a common subject. This time around, the subject was to be Goodman Games’ Master Dungeon series of D&D […]
I actually had come up with this post BEFORE everyone else on the RPG Bloggers Network started doing their own lists… honest! So here’s my list not necessarily of my favorite monsters in D&D, but of those that I always try to work into every campaign I run. Then, a list of 5 monsters we […]
Earlier today we were driving to the restaurant for a family dinner. I’m telling my 7 year old son Nico about how long it’s been since we did an interactive story. Nico “I’d like to have another of those stories” Chatty “You know Nico, you’re old enough to play the real game of Dungeons and […]
Most of us can trace back our D&D gaming lineage to a single Dungeon Master. That’s not to say we hadn’t played before or more often with others, but our friend Abe made an indelible mark on all of our gaming consciousnesses.

This month, my friend and dubiously trustworthy lieutenant PM proposed to […]
This has been making the rounds (or is that, making the Realms?) this week: a fan film based on a book starring everyone’s favorite dual-wielding Drow renegade with a figurine of wonderous power, Drizzt.
It has taken a journey worthy of the Hero Cycle: the movie Fanboys, written over a decade ago before Phantom Menace came out, has struggled against setbacks and massive executive meddling, has finally been released. It was many years in development and suffered delays (I first heard about it two years ago, when it was set to be released in the summer of ’07), so the question is, has it all been worth it?
