    Gen Con Is Going Ahead

    That picture does not look good at all in terms of COVID transmission risk factors. Hundreds of people could get infected from just a few carriers in that sort of environment. 😬

    Paizo Jessica Price (ex Paizo employee) spills the beans

    Actually, didn't he confirm that the painting in question was on display in his office. That's the opposite of denial. He only denied that staff were uncomfortable about an iron cross hanging in their boss's office.

    Paizo Jessica Price (ex Paizo employee) spills the beans

    Whoa now, enough with the crazy ideas. You don't want the management to think you're gunning for their jobs with lateral thinking like that. Next you'll be telling me that it's not normal for staff to have asthma attacks due to the amount of dust inside a building.

    Paizo Jessica Price (ex Paizo employee) spills the beans

    I kinda feel like Erik Mona is being given a bit of a free pass by many people. Price stated that he was basically the best of the worst in regards to management. However, Erik's reddit post doesn't address the fact that he sat on his hands and did nothing when people under him raised issues...

    Paizo Jessica Price (ex Paizo employee) spills the beans

    Yeah, it certainly is. It seems that those operating at a lower paid levels are very different from those at the executive level. Disappointing to hear that Lisa Stevens and Eric Mona are not the people I had thought they were though.

    Paizo Jessica Price (ex Paizo employee) spills the beans

    Wow! Just wow!!! I had always thought that Paizo was leading the way in terms of being a progressive RPG company. Based on what Jessica Price has written, that seems to be about as far from the truth as possible. Some of this stuff seems comparable with the whole TSR3/Ernie Gygax/Justin LaNasa...

    D&D 5E My Five Favorite Things From The Wild Beyond The Witchlight

    I’m a sucker for dark carnival themes in my RPGs, so this has suddenly really triggered my interest.

    D&D General D&D 3E Style Guide Peeks Behind The Scenes

    Thanks for that. Very interesting to read.

    Mapping It All Out (With Help)

    I got by for years with a couple of Paizo flip mats. Lightweight, portable and cheap. If I needed an easy to transport battlemat, that would be my first choice. When playing at home I now prefer tiled or jigsaw battle mats for my games. They’re bulkier than the flip mats and more expensive, but...

    Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter is live!

    $8.5m would get it close to the top 50 most funded Kickstarters ever, which is pretty amazing.

    Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter is live!

    They're definitely advertising the heck out of it. I've frequently had Google and Facebook ads pop up for it on many occasions now.

    Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter is live!

    Why would they do that? That’s a stretch goal that would increase their costs without adding anything to the game.

    Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter is live!

    Let’s not get carried away here. A $4m+ RPG Kickstarter is freaking awesome, but you’re still talking about a Kickstarter with 35k backers There are several established RPGs with more players than that on Roll20 alone, let alone all electronic and physical tabletops. D&D has millions of...

    Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter is live!

    I’m sad that IDW’s game division seems to be all but gone. An Avatar board game was slated to follow the TMNT (which I’ve got and love) and Batman (waiting on delivery) board games as a Kickstarter. The success of this Kickstarter shows that there is strong demand for the setting.

    Camping and D&D: Actual Play

    Great writing. I definitely get like I was part of those encounters. Sound like the kids really enjoyed it too, which is the ultimate success of any game.
