Fellow DMs: how do you know when to call off a session? I don’t mean, like, because something came up or some players told you they couldn’t make it. I mean, how do you gauge if you’re just not mentally ready to run a game? I feel like I used to know the answer toContinue reading “Dealing With Disappointing Sessions”
Dang, I’m posting this pretty late, huh? I wish I had a good excuse, but I don’t. You know what I do have? Hades, by Supergiant Games. I’m sure that Hades needs no introduction; it came out around this time last year and immediately took the the world by storm. A roguelike with countless avenuesContinue reading “A Year Later, Hades Is Still the Best”
Okay, I’m just gonna level with folks: I don’t have anything to write about tonight. It’s, like, a quarter past 8 p.m. and I just finished the work I started at 7:30 this morning. I haven’t really thought about what to write today. I kicked around a couple of ideas before I sat down; IContinue reading “Out Of Ideas”
I do not, generally speaking, think of myself as a “Batman guy.” When it comes to superhero comics–and especially DC comics–a lot of people are either Superman Fans or Batman Fans. I’m a Superman Fan. I love Big Blue because he’s an aspirational character: he’s good. Always. That gives me so much joy and soContinue reading “Wait, Do I… Like Batman?”
Heya, folks! Let’s check back in with our brave party of Lionel, Grell, and Valeryn, shall we? When last we left off, the trio had fought there way through a camp infested by mold-monsters and zombies. Unpleasant stuff! As our third session picked up, the group spotted a strange figure staring at them from theContinue reading “Old Growth, Part 3”
Folks! I’ve been reading a lot of comic books and you know what that means: it’s time to talk about my favorite comic book card game, Marvel Champions! Today I’m talking about the unstoppable Wasp, Nadia Van Dyne! As a reminder, these breakdowns don’t cover Aspect cards or strategy, they’re mostly about how well theContinue reading “Marvel Champions: Wasp Breakdown”
Hey, so, guess who felt so yucky yesterday that they wrote this up and then forgot to post it? Oops! Alright, so, I held off on writing this post ahead of time because I intended to write it about the third session of my current campaign, which I just held last night. Spoilers: it wasContinue reading “A Quick Post”
Last week I wrote about the first session of my new campaign. This week, I wanted to follow up by talking about session 2! We picked up right after the big cursed wolf fight, and I have to say, I was a little touched by the way the characters reacted to what had happened; GrellContinue reading “Old Growth, Part 2”
It’s happening! My glorious return to the world of tabletop games if finally happening! Over the last few weeks I’ve managed to run two sessions of my new campaign, “Old Growth.” Today, I want to talk a little bit about how the campaign is going so far and how I’m adjusting to running things again.Continue reading “Old Growth, Part 1”
I love creators like Monster Monday and Danger Rooms & Dragons that use tabletop systems like Pathfinder 2E and D&D 5E to create beloved pop culture characters (and monsters). I decided I’d push myself a little bit and try my hand at doing something similar. As a challenge to myself, I decided to try toContinue reading “Building Superman in Pathfinder 2E”
