    Kickstarter dumpster fire?

    "Cancelled by the project creator." 35 backers, 30 dollars raised, and most of them seemed to have pledged a dollar just to post a comment. Well, I suppose that's one way to research the market.

    Kickstarter dumpster fire?

    The game itself seems to offer nothing really new. Just a roll-and-move "social commentary" Monopoly clone. I remember playing one called "Let's Buy Britain" back in the 1980s, which someone had made in response to privatisation. At the time it was interesting and funny. Now it's a lazy concept...

    What are you reading? September's Septic Septum edition!

    Psionic priests, rangers, psionic-boosting machines, intelligent bears and beavers (and SLUGS!), morse and hoppers, lightning guns, slavers and pirates, warrior princesses, dryads and catfolk ... What's not to love?

    What are you reading? September's Septic Septum edition!

    I love those books. Sometimes I think about running a campaign in that world. It's a shame Lanier never finished the series. Myself, I'm about to start on A Little Hatred, Joe Abercrombie's new novel set in the First Law world.

    Best D&D novels

    I enjoyed a couple of the Gord the Rogue books, but I haven't reread them since the 1980s. The Forgotten Realms books I've read (Icewind Dale trilogy, Spellfire, maybe one or two others) definitely haven't stood the test of time. I read one Darksun novel, which I enjoyed. Can't remember what it...

    Bad D&D jokes needed

    How do you know there's a halfling in your fridge? - Footprints in the butter. How do you know there's a dwarf in your fridge? - All your beer is gone, and there are footprints in the butter. How do you know there's a sorcerer in your fridge? - FIREBALL!

    New Rise of Skywalker trailer

    Judging from this trailer, there will be even more accusations of "rehashing the previous movies" than with TFA.

    Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch for auction

    I'll be very disapponted if the bidding doesn't go "1, 2, 5".

    Dragonlance based on Mormonism?!?

    I'd totally read a Dragonlance novel based on the Moomins.
