About the Red Aegis rpg…

July 18, 2013 by

So I have some pretty cool news…   I’ve joined the development team (as a freelancer) of a new rpg that has been announced called Red Aegis.  The game is the brainchild of the James Bros. (Matt & Brian), names you’ll recognize from plenty 4e D&D WOTC products.  The game’s premise is what interested me […]

My friend mark Meredith from the Dice Monkey blog invited me unto a Google hangout to talk about 2e D&D. I have fond memories of that edition, so I jumped at the chance. Here’s our chat.

I was invited to play Marvel Heroic Roleplaying by my friend Mark, from the Dice Monkey blog and the Marvel-centric Plot Points blog.  The game was run on Google+ hangouts, and since I had never played Marvel before I jumped at the chance. I have a lot of friends who have been a part of the […]

Here’s my attempt at a quick and dirty conversion of the introductory adventure for the 2nd Edition Revised and Expanded version of West End Games SW RPG, The Pirates of Prexiar, into the new FFG SW system… I am not going to reproduce the whole adventure, just the relevant bits. This isn’t just a blog […]

I received the new Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginner’s game in the mail yesterday, and thought I’d share with you the contents of the box. I can’t speak yet to the actual playing experience, that won’t happen for another week or so, but I can comment on the contents of the game.  It’s worth noting that I […]

November 27, 2012 by

Found this on Amazon: “Storm Over Baldur’s Gate: Sundering Adventure 1″ Are we looking at the first dndnext adventure? There’s no system in the product description, but it’s fair to say that 4e is dead when it comes to product releases… Interesting times….. Releases in 2013, but dndnext is more than likely arriving in 2014……

This weekend I had the opportunity to play Dungeon! with my daughter (7).  We had a great time, and the rules were easy enough for her to quickly pick up and play.  The game is simple, but very fun, and I definitely recommend it for parents looking for a D&D-ish game to play with their […]

2nd Edition D&D Coming Back, Old Modules Coming Back… What’s Next?

November 2, 2012 by

It seems that Wizards of the Coast is on a reprint kick. Of course, it’s easy to figure out why.  4th Ed. is on its way out, and at this point that’s more reality than speculation.  Books haven’t been announced, and yeah, Dungeon/Dragon content is still being released, but…. obviously 5th Ed. is king right […]

So at the Gencon keynote WOTC announced today that the DnD playtest process will take two years, and that they are going to open their back catalog in electronic format next year. So that means a 2014 release of the game, just in time for the 40th anniversary of DnD. I called it all, including […]
