After Action Report: Bridge on the River DIE!

This week at Adventurer’s League, I decided to use a set piece and make an encounter that would actually be memorable, actually be a little threatening, and would actually give me around in combat for a change. So I put a little bridge in… Continue reading “After Action Report: Bridge on the River DIE!”

RPG dreams: A new system each time

I’ve had this dream for a while: to find a group flexible enough and willing to put in the effort to run 52 RPG systems in a year, a new one each week. I haven’t found that group yet, but as I was talking to my not-quite-a-boss at the gamestore yesterday, he counter-offered with a store event idea: 12 games in twelve systems in 12 months.

Handcrafted Heroes 2: The Death of Bonda

Last week, I rambled and ranted about making Bonda K’dock, my barbarian in a world of super heroes. Well, after all that effort of the post, and a week of rebuilding him from scratch, I regret to inform you, my reading public, that Bonda is DEAD.

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”

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”

D&D Book Review: Volo’s Guide To Monsters (9/10)

I’ve been wanting to do book reviews on here for a bit. And, since I just got a new book and I’ve been bemoaning my famine of content, I guess it’s time to do this thing and see what I can do to make it work. In my mind, the perfect review is my 10 Point Review system, which is sadly not calibrated to reviewing D&D manuals. Yet. But that’s not the main point of this article. Hopefully, by the time I’m done here, I’ll have finished my metric. But let’s get into my thoughts and impressions of the book, hmm?

Daily D&D Ramble Day 1

I’ve been feeling kinda rottrn that my content has dried up. I think of so many things, but since they never get written down, they never feel complete. So I’m going to try to have a daily blog of D&D stuff and see if I can make a habit of it. If you want to hear more about a specific ramble or want to hear something I haven’t covered yet, let me know in a comment or something! Continue reading “Daily D&D Ramble Day 1”
