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. No mention was made of a release date or price point, ignoring what we all know was leaked from the Barnes and Noble website, […]

I went crazy on twitter last night. I was doing some fiction writing (non rpg) when I suddenly stopped and thought about how I really haven’t been doing my job as “newbiedm”, which basically is to try and help new dm’s do their job right. So I started tweeting tips. And before I knew it, […]

Playing Dungeon! With My Kid

November 5, 2012 by

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 […]

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 […]

I haven’t really written much yet about D&D Next, but I will, but right now’s not the time.  I’ve given my opinion here or there, but I haven’t really reviewed the game or anything like that.  WOTC published an interview today with me for their playtester profile series… If you’d like my general opinion about […]

Last December, I was supposed to be part of that now famous group of people who flew to WOTC headquarters and participated in the first demonstration of what is now being referred top as “Dnd Next”, or as I call it, 5e.  We were NOT told it was for 5e, but rather for a conference […]

Last weekend our Friday night DM surprised us with a fantastic pair of maps made from Terraclips and D&D tiles for our campaign finale. I had never heard or seen these strange tile-and-clip things, so I asked him about it. I was also surprised by how sturdy the structure was – he picked it up […]

Sell me the stats!

January 13, 2012 by

As I keep digesting the news that Wizards of the Coast is already working on a follow up edition to 4e , my mind is wondering how and what they can do to accomplish the goal of bringing back fans of all previous editions under this one game.  It’s a lofty goal, and I’m skeptical that it […]
