At Origins Game Fair, I played CHEW: The Roleplaying Game based on the Image Comics series of the same name. I signed up for an adventure entitled “FDA Case File: Cock Holster” GM’ed by Pete Petrusha from Imagining Games. However, as of this writing, that was in the future as Pete, Head Writer, Mitchell Wallace, and I did this interview about their CHEW RPG Kickstarter pre-Origins. On that...
A huge range of genres and RPG options this week. An amazing mix of old favorites, whimsy, death, war, and the weird. Play a scaled PC in Arcanis or a ruler in Conan. Guard your game with screens for Lunars and Aberrant. Explore eight weird places in Numenera and go into aerospace in BattleTech. Play a toy guardian or fantasy creature protector. Go GMless and explore the human condition and...

With She-Ra and He-Man returning to Netflix as series that invoke the nostalgia of the 80s with a modern sensibility, several retrospectives have explored the origins of the toy line that that became a multi-million dollar franchise.

On March 12th, 2020, Onyx Path Publishing launched their first Kickstarter for Legendlore for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition into the last moments of America’s pre-COVID reality. That same day, multiple major sporting events announced their cancelation cementing the reality of the pandemic in the US. By March 23rd, OPP canceled the Kickstarter. I interviewed developer, Steffie De Vaan, about...
Rick and Morty, the cartoon inspired by Doc Brown and Marty McFly's relationship from the movie Back to the Future, has taken sci-fi comedic nihilism to new highs and lows. The Starter Set, in which the dungeon master plays Rick DMing a Dungeons & Dragons session for his family, has its roots in Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons, a comic series that firmly positions the fantasy tabletop...
