My Quick 5e Thoughts

July 19, 2014 by

4

I wanted to give a quick and dirty “opinion post” on 5e, and this is not meant to be a comprehensive review, just quick thoughts… By now I’ve had a chance (and hopefully if you’re interested in 5e, you have as well) of reading and playing with both the basic rules pdf and the Starter […]

July 6, 2014 by

1

I’ll review the product soon, but I wanted to post this here for now… Mike Shea from Slyflourish.com and I recorded a google hangout where we talk about the new 5e starter box for about an hour. If you’re into watching grown men talk about elves and dwarves, I invite you to check it out. […]

WOTC Posts a D&D Starter Set Unboxing Video

June 24, 2014 by

WOTC published an unboxing video today of its upcoming Starter Set box, and I have to say that at first glance, I’m impressed and hopeful that it’ll be a good product. Based on what I can see on the video, it looks like a high quality product (expected from a publisher like WOTC). Full disclosure: […]

A bit of info about JotDA

April 20, 2014 by

0

So one of the things I wanted to do when following up rpgKids was to do something completely different from it in every sense. I didn’t want to create rpgKids 2.0, and I wanted to move away from the “DnD” inspired fantasy trappings for the game. So I gave myself a series of challenges: The […]

My rpgKids followup…

April 4, 2014 by

0

I’ve been working here and there on a follow up to rpgKids, and I’m slowly getting to the finish line… I launched a webpage for the project today, so I thought I’d link it here. There’s not much there but a description of the setting/story of the game. Soon, when I have more to share […]

The GAMA Trade Show is currently taking place in Vegas (where Greg Leeds, WOTC CEO is the keynote speaker), and some news regarding D&D 5th Ed. came out following WOTC’s presentation.

Working on a new kids’ game

February 11, 2014 by

8

I’ve been working on a new kids’ game the past few months, and it’s finally starting to take shape. I’m pretty excited about it. As opposed to rpgKids, which was basically a pretty simple ruleset with no story attached, this game will have a story built into it, and not be as combat focused as […]

Looking for an artist or two

January 30, 2014 by

Here’s the deal. I’m looking for an artist for a secret super duper special project (my next kid’s game, don’t tell anyone… shhh). Right now I need some art to give my work-in-progress play test document some flavor, I’m thinking one or two pieces of art should do it. So here’s what I need… send […]

Gencon Bound

January 29, 2014 by

2

After two years of not attending “the best four days in gaming”, I’ve decided to once again attend Gencon 2014. The reasons were twofold, first because of the expected celebrations around the release of DnD 5th Ed. and DnD’s 40th anniversary, which I would like to be there for, and second because I miss hanging […]
