So once upon a time I had a podcast called the NewbieDM.com Minicast, and it was nominated for an ENnie and stuff…. and then… poof… it disappeared due to several factors. Well, I want to bring it back.  So I’m ready to start production on Season 2 of the show… It’ll be the same format, […]

I haven’t reviewed stuff in a while, and recently I was offered the chance to review some stuff from Open Design and Engine Publishers so I wanted to share my thoughts with you.  As a disclaimer, these PDF’s were offered to me in exchange for a review.  Also, upfront I’ll tell you that I enjoyed […]

Last night saw the end of the PC’s role as the Heroes of Redhold, an Avvarian settlement in the Frostback Mountains of Ferelden, and it ended on a kick ass note that truly showed how much stunts can turn the tide of battle in the Dragon Age RPG.  FIrst, a quick recap, and be warned, […]

“We haven’t seen a Dungeon yet, all we’re doing is talking to people, bringing down corrupt political figures, and killing monsters out in the wilderness.  This is really different.” My 4e campaign consisted of my homebrew storyline, which was the backdrop for the published adventures I hacked a bit to fit my storyline.
