    When D&D5th was coming out, they mentioned that they had some of the guys from the Magic the Gathering marketing department helping out. Then I noticed something, D&D has two storylines a year, one that begins in March, and one that begins in October. Magic also does something similar, they...

    Backgrounds inspired by Rome

    Backgrounds are the best part of 5th edition IMO. Mechanically they focus a player on at least giving passive thought to how their character functions in the world. Which adds a surprising amount of depth. In my game I had players choose their bonds, and some roll randomly and then try to fit...

    Warlocks of Bacchus

    Part 3 on our series based on Rome. For a long time now I've been thinking about Warlocks and their place in D&D. I came to the conclusion that if I was in control of "Dark Sun" or "Al Qadim" i'd probably make the Templar and the Sha'ir respectively Warlocks. They fit the fluff a little better...

    Night's Black Agents Review

    Night’s Black Agents is written by Kenneth Hite and was born by the designer “watching the Bourne movies obsessively.” I’m not sure where the second half of the same spawned from. But at some point, Ken said to himself, you know what a super-secret-agent game needs? Vampires! The set up is...

    Marriage as Downtime

Here is the first, adding a bit to character narrative arc's by giving simple rules to...

    During the first month of the blog we posted an article about designing boss encounters with "Phased Boss Fights."
