    Making Tokens for VTT

    So I made the move to running games online using a VTT (Roll20). Inevitably, I get into full-prep mode wanting to get as much done, ready, and on-hand then I could possibly need or use.

    Pulling the plug

    So today I made the decision to let go of my 5th Edition D&D books by putting them up for sale. I've been playing the game and collecting books since the 80s before there was an edition. It was just Basic and Advanced. I stuck with it through the ups and downs with mixed emotions and...

    Roleplaying since the 80s and I'm really tired!

    Back in the early 80s, a friend of the family introduced me to fantasy roleplaying games when I was about 12 years old. It was the Dungeons & Dragons Basic game in a red box, and I was hooked! Being in the military, my family moved around a lot so it wasn't always easy to find the right...
