    Resuming Face-to-Face Gaming

    My entire gaming group is now vaccinated, and by the time our next regularly scheduled game comes up, will be fully immunized. According to CDC guidelines, it's safe for us to resume gaming in person at my house, even if one couple brings their school-aged child (who doesn't game with us and...

    Miniature Display and Storage

    How does everyone store/display your miniatures? Ideally, I would display large pieces (like dragons) and the ones I've painted, and just store the large batches of bulk minis (like the pre-painted D&D minis I collected when the D&D Minis game was a thing). Ease of accessibility is a plus, so I...

    Aces & Eights Reloaded

    Kenzer & Co. launched a Kickstarter today for the second edition of their western RPG: Aces & Eights today. I own the original and they're keeping the shot clock mechanic from that edition. I assume news of what rules are changing between 1E and 2E are forthcoming (I imagine 2E will bring the...

    It Figures: Episode I - The Parental Menace

    So, a friend of mine had some fun recently with vintage Star Wars action figures, a camera, and some sound editing equipment (with some very well-done music supplied by his son). I present It Figures: Episode I - The Parental Menace. Think of it as a cross between Robot Chicken Star Wars and...

    Star Trek: Voyager Condensed

    My wife and I are finishing up Deep Space Nine (the series finale is all that remains), and at some point, I suppose we should watch Voyager, but I remember being sorely disappointed in this series and how it utterly wasted its premise (I watched most of the first 2 seasons and only tuned in...

    Dawn of Rebellion - My Age of Rebellion Campaign

    With the end of my Tyranny of Dragons campaign (TL;DR - two PCs were eaten by a dragon and the rest of the group was BONED, so they all voted to accept defeat and end the campaign), we decided I would run Age of Rebellion. If you happen to be one of my players, stop reading now... So, I've...

    General RPG Discussion Database Error

    When I'm on the Forum menus page, when I click on the link for General RPG Discussion, I get a Database Error (on both Chrome and Firefox). I can still access a thread in that forum that I've participated in through my profile page, but any links I click to take me back to the main forum page...

    You Find a Clockwork Puzzle Box...

    Each of the six sides has a unique mechanism to challenge your skills and patience. Each side must be unlocked in sequence; a mistake resets the whole puzzle. You spend the better part of a year deciphering the puzzle. What's inside? OK, I admit. I'm using you all for brainstorming. I gave a...

    It's that time again! Everyone is ramping up for Gen Con and I have updated my Tips & Awareness post. Even if you think you're a Gen Con expert, you probably should read this; I go into detail about something most gamers don't even think about. Gen Con Tips & Advice at DoctorStrangeRoll

    D&D 5E 5E In Play - Brief Thoughts

    When the new D&D Starter Set and Basic Rules came out, my players asked me to run a few sessions of it before Gen Con. One was going to be playing several games and the other was going to be running several games. We were between Star Wars adventures at the time, so everyone agreed it would...

    The Ballad of Twilight Dungeon (original novel-related music)

    For Christmas, my wife commissioned for me an original song. The song, written and performed by Dan the Bard (Dan Marcotte), tells the story for my first novel, Wings of Twilight (which I believe some of you have read). It can serve as a prologue to my second novel, Iron Fist of the Oroqs...

    Just Finished my Fifth Novel!

    Well...sort of. I finished the first draft last night and got the file all prepped for my primary editor. She can't get to it until after New Year's because of holiday madness. Still, I'm confident we can get through all the revisions in time for a late-spring release, provided there are no...

    Handicap Awareness at Gen Con

    I wrote a blog post about handicap-awareness at Gen Con. So, it's a little different than other blogs offering tips & advice for Gen Con. I'd repost the whole thing here, but I did use some language in the last paragraph that Eric's grandmother wouldn't appreciate (it's appropriate in-context...

    Gary Con V

    Any fellow ENWorlders going to Gary Con V? (March 13-17, 2013 in Lake Geneva, WI) This will be my fourth Gary Con, and once again I'll be running a spate of games for Dead Games Society (as well as one game that doesn't qualify as a "dead game" yet). Voyage of the Cyclopean Sun Start Time...

    Pathfinder 1E Kid-Friendly Adventures

    I'm trying to find a good Pathfinder-compatible (i.e. I don't want to have to do a ton of conversion work--I don't have time) adventure that's combat-light and suitable for pre-teens. Right now, I'm looking at "Hollow's Last Hope" from Paizo, "The Honey Queen" or "The Griffon Hatchling Heist"...

    Pathfinder 1E Skull & Shackles AP

    Has anyone run this one yet? I've come up with an idea for my next campaign that uses this adventure path and I was wondering if there were any pitfalls of which I needed to be aware. Based on how my players handle NPCs, I think being pirates is a good fit for their playstyle. Based on how they...

    New Campaign Conundrum

    Since there isn't an all-encompassing D&D/Pathfinder forum, I'm posting this here. For the sake of argument, say you had 3 players. You wanted to make a D&D campaign. One that is friendly to a new player (new to RPGs in general; a true newbie), but with complex enough character customization to...
