Talking with Ed Greenwood and Jeff Grubb

July 9, 2021 by


I had the opportunity to speak with legendary D&D authors Ed Greenwood and Jeff Grubb on the debut episode of my new webshow, The NewbieDM Show. It was an interview I’ve wanted to do for a long time, as I am a big fan of their work. Jeff Grubb is one of those D&D designers […]

Launched a new campaign last night and other gaming updates

March 9, 2018 by


It feels like forever since I’ve updated my blog, and I’ve had so much to talk about here but haven’t had the time. So last night I launched a new campaign on, and I’m pretty excited about it. It’s a Star Wars game set in the new films’ era, right after Last Jedi, and […]

Forgotten idea from my Google Wave: “Fragility”

March 20, 2012 by


Google sent out an email this morning reminding folks that their Wave service was disappearing  at the end of April.  While I didn’t find much use for Wave, I did see its potential for being a neat way to brainstorm ideas with other people.  I logged on to my account for the first time since […]

On August 1st, buy something at a bookstore

July 14, 2011 by


I grew up around books.  Shelves and shelves of them.  My dad is an avid reader, so is my brother.  I have to admit that as a kid, I read a lot less than them, but books were always a part of the scenery.  My wife has a masters degree in reading education, and when […]

October 31, 2010 by


Hey guys.  I wanted to do something special for the remainder of the year, right through the holidays.  I’m doing this because before I’m a D&D blogger, or anything else for that matter, I’m a dad to two beautiful and healthy kids.  If there’s one thing that scares me in life is my kids being […]

NewbieDM Review: Back to the Future The Card Game

September 28, 2010 by


Before I begin talking about the Back to the Future Card Game, I think it’s worth mentioning that this is the first hobby card game I’ve ever owned.  I’ve never played Magic the Gathering, and I’ve only had a brief experience with the Star Wars card game from Decipher.  Card games aren’t really my thing, […]

A member of the gaming community is in need

May 12, 2010 by


I’ll make this post short and to the point.  You’ll rarely see me use the blog for anything other than D&D stuff, but this story has affected me a bit, and I want to put it out there in case you haven’t heard. There is a gentleman who has a blog called Vulcan Stev’s Database.  […]
