On Friday, November 13th I am participating in these events… 3-4:30pm EST – the panel “Movable Type: How to Self Publish” along with Chris Clark of Eldritch Enterprises and Kurt Patz of Chronos Publishing… Want to…

The Lost Age – They Came From the Lake, Session 2

Wow. I love starting holiday weekends off with a bang. And gaming with friends and all their kids (9 players plus yours truly) was a ton of fun! You can read about the first session here… In the Beginning… We started this session where the last one ended, batting clean-up on the beach after saving…

Favorite RPG of All Time – #RPGaDay, Day 31

I’ve once again fallen way behind on the #RPGaDay effort, so am just going to happily write about the last topic in the list. I do have to thank  Dave Chapman of Autocratik for starting this fantastic project. I’ve seen great articles across the web all month and it’s been amazing. So hopefully we can do something similar…

Ten Hints about Coming Change in the Penned Forest

Far too often, the world around us changes slowly. But in the case of the Penned Forest, observant folks might notice a few things before the rest of the world. It’s been nearly 1,000 years since the forest was locked away and suddenly it appears to be gaining a life of its own. There have…

A Trip to the Doldrums

“Welcome to the doldrums,” said the captain. “We’ll be here for a while until the sea goddess laughs and creates a bit of wind to push us home.” We knew it was dangerous to travel into these waters this time of year. A few vessels always take the chance to shave some time off a…

Campaign Spark: The Penned Forest

At the heart of the Kingdom in the capital lies a forest walled off from the rest of the city. The forest has always been off limits, as long as anyone can remember. Penned away inside a short wall, the trees grow tall, but not overly so. They receive plenty of sunshine and rain in…

Favorite character – #RPGaDay, Day 8

Now on day 8, we’re diving into murky waters for the #RPGaDay effort this month. Favorite character is a tough decision and I’ll narrow it down to three. First, there was my Palladium Fantasy character… a wizard named Rilamus. He was a smartass who once called a god “Squid Face” and that may in fact…

Most “Intellectual” RPG owned – #RPGaDAY, day 7

So for #RPGaDay on day 7, we get to talk about the most “intellectual” RPG we own… A good amount of my gaming career has been spent focused less on “intellectual” gaming and more on just having fun. And no, I don’t think the two are necessarily separate. But in my experience, games that require more work…

Favorite RPG never get to play – #RPGaDAY 2014, Day 6

So for #RPGaDay on day 6, I get to talk about my favorite RPG I never get to play. And it’s kind of like Pringles – I can’t pick just one. You get two. 🙂 First, there’s TOON. I have only played this game twice. Ever. The first time was in college when we had…

Most Old School RPG owned – #RPGaDAY 2014, Day 5

So now we’re on Day 5 of #RPGaDay. It asks us what the most “Old School” RPG may be in your collection. In my collection, it would have to be my classic Dungeons & Dragons or Palladium Fantasy books. But in my defense, I see “Old School” as being nothing more than a way of describing my…
