I read a book recently, that brought to life the mental effects that 4 years of brutal war could have on people. And the whole time I was thinking, man, Eberron has had a hundred years of war that only became more and more brutal. What would their mental hospitals be like?
A new UA has dropped, this time with options for the Artificer, Druid and ranger. Here are my thoughts as I read through.
So a Sunday or two ago, I had a decent amount of my family gathered together, so I offered to run a game of Masks. I’m not sure if I properly stated that this was a practice run for me, but we gave it a go. I learned A LOT in our, what, 2 hour […]
This may shock some people, but I’ve never read the Great Gatsby. It’s just never come up. I’ve heard people mention it’s good, and the fact that it appears on a lot of “best classic book” lists, well, means I should have read it. But I never have. This probably won’t be the first such […]

WotC have some new class options out and all of them sound interesting. Make sure to fill out surveys for things you have opinions on.
Monster hunting seems like it should be a core part of D&D. They have monsters a-plenty, PCs are accustomed to doing things for money, it should just work, right? Well, it should. And it can. But I haven’t been able to find anything in my books that describes the process. I’m sure various adventures have […]
I found a quote by C. S. Lewis that I’m going to misuse. He said “It is a good rule after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between.” Now, my misuse of this quote will be in the definition of “new” and […]
