Gift Ideas for Crafty Gamers
  • 5
This list is for gamers who take their miniature, terrain, painting, and modeling seriously. The investments are significant, but there may be discounts during the holiday season.
Thankful for My Players
  • 19
Wanted: Four or more people to play a game for four hours every week for at least a year.
Gift Ideas for Steampunk Fans
  • 0
This past Halloween I dressed in a steampunk theme, but I've also redesigned my office with steampunk decor and use steampunk props in my 5E D&D game. If you know someone who is a fan of...
Oh No, Everyone's Here!
  • 24
Our group is balanced to have six players so that when one or two can’t play, we still have enough to move forward. But sometimes everyone shows up, and that can be overwhelming.
Boo! Pity the Ambush Monster
  • 24
I love the idea of monsters who snatch unwary PCs and drag them back to their lair, but in practice that's tough to pull off.
When Half the Party Shows Up
  • 64
We created a rule of playing with a minimum of six players. But the folks who showed really wanted to play, so we broke our own rule ... and nearly broke the party with it.
Fade to Black
  • 8
In my campaign I face the twin challenges of reinforcing the world's lore and giving my players something to do when they're knocked out. This is my solution.
Older Than You Look
  • 70
In my campaign I have two elves, two tieflings, a human, and a gnome. Their age difference comes up more than you think.
Who Invented the Ice Dragon?
  • 23
Fire-breathing dragons are a well-known trope, but ice-breathing dragons are a relatively new beast to fantasy. Or are they?
D&D Tactics: Hikes
  • 187
I go on a lot of Boy Scout hikes. If I were in an adventuring party in a fantasy world, I'd never make it.
D&D Tactics: Camping
  • 16
As we try to makeup for lost time, we've been camping more than ever before. And that got me thinking about what happens when D&D characters camp.
D&D Tactics: Fortnite
  • 7
When my family is not playing escape rooms, we're often getting together playing Fortnite. It's something that started with my son, but our three-person team now includes my daughter too. And...
D&D Tactics: Escape Rooms
  • 2
My family does a lot of escape rooms, and we've finally gotten good enough to finish one in record time. Those same tactics can help parties in tabletop games at conventions.
True Tales from Stranger Things: The Breakup
  • 9
Stranger Things depicts what it was like to play Dungeons & Dragons in the eighties ... right down to the end of a campaign and in some cases, friendships.
True Tales from Stranger Things: The Satanic Panic Comes to School
  • 82
Stranger Things' latest season incorporates the Satanic Panic into its storyline, but in my experience it wasn't the jocks who became the biggest threat. It was a teacher.
True Tales from Stranger Things: My Hellfire Club
  • 10
Stranger Things helped thrust Dungeons & Dragons into the mainstream, but it also touched on a lot of gamer archetypes that I found in my high school group.
True Tales from Stranger Things: Satanism, Strategy & Clubs
  • 50
The hit Netflix series about the 80s-themed tale of extradimensional entities and the kids who battle them features Dungeons & Dragons prominently. And a lot of it is inspired by what actually...
True Tales from Stranger Things: Kids on Bikes
  • 100
Stranger Things tells a tale of inter-dimensional entities battling kids in the 80s. To get around, the kids use their bikes, a genre that launched its own RPG. And yes, kids really did have that...
How to Profit from Writing Reviews
  • 9
There's a simple way to earn money or credit for your reviews even if you're not paid to do it: affiliate marketing.
Solving the Gnome Problem
  • 74
I mentioned previously how I’ve never quite solved adding a halfling culture to my campaign. But I’ve got gnomes all figured out, and it starts with the Guilds of Florence.
