What I Did Wrong at D&D, Family Edition: Ep 3

This is a special 2 week rendition report. I failed to write last week, not that I had much to report on. It was a mediocre session. I could have done better, but not by much. The more recent game was better. So we’ll be talking more about what we did right for that, maybe. But let’s get into it, yeah? Continue reading “What I Did Wrong at D&D, Family Edition: Ep 3”

Rebuilding Trask. Again.

I have few D&D characters with solid lore behind them. Part of that is I find myself behind the screen more and being a player less and less, but also, during my infancy as a player, I kept hopping between characters, excited to try out new things. And, while it was fun, it didn’t build the stories. But now even though I’ve settled a bit, I still find myself in a perpetual state of remaking the characters I have.

What I Did Wrong at D&D, Family Edition: Ep2

I was maybe 80% prepared for D&D this week, as opposed to the 65% I was the week before. We’re slowly picking up the pace. Eventually, we’ll be in the territory that most of SKT is, with the party just moving from place to place and the DM having to read the descriptions and run the encounters as they reach them. But we’re not there quite yet, so I can keep preparing and getting better. Continue reading “What I Did Wrong at D&D, Family Edition: Ep2”

Convention Report: GalaxyFest 2017

This last weekend, I had the opportunity to go to GalaxyFest2017. A friend of mine needed help with his booth, so I got in as a vendor, which was an interesting experience. Here’s what I learned, what I thought, and so on. (Oh, Carl’s site is Tale Spin Games. Cool product, check it out!) Continue reading “Convention Report: GalaxyFest 2017”

What I did wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 1

As part of one of those “family bonding” things, I was asked to run a game of D&D for my family. Since I’m a sucker for attention and love a game of D&D, no matter what side of the screen I’m on, I agreed to do the DMing. And, since I’m in noway perfect, I made mistakes. Welcome back to WidWad: What I Did Wrong at D&D (Family Edition). Continue reading “What I did wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 1”

Gothregel Primer: My thoughts on my open world, wilderness exploration game

Just about four weeks ago, I put out a call on my Facebook, wondering if people would be interested in an open table, wilderness exploration adventure. It received a fairly decent response, so I began my research, and started figuring out what I’d want in such an adventure. It turns out, unsurprisingly, that I signed myself up for a lot of work.  Continue reading “Gothregel Primer: My thoughts on my open world, wilderness exploration game”

A quick rating of the other 5e manuals

So, after not a whole lot of careful consideration, we have a 10 point review metric set up for RPG manuals! Huzzah! So we might as well throw some numbers at things! You know that big analysis I did for Vog’s Guide to Monsters? That’s not what’s going on here! We have 4 books to cover in one article, so we need to hop straight in!
