    TSR Jack Vance's Forgotten Contributions to D&D

    Much of the 1e PHB and DMG is written in a sort of Vance pastiche. D&D has popularized a lot of the odd, wonderful, archaic words Vance used.

    TSR April 4th, 1984: TSR's 3rd Purge

    Me too. CCGs are spawn of MtG, which came out in -93. Eye if the World, the first WoT book, in 1990. Tomb Raider... I don't remember, but with better graphics than computers in the eighties.

    First Ever GAMES WORKSHOP Store Is Being Demolished

    I thought they left it sometime in the mid 80's (when they changed the address in White Dwarf), or I would have been there at least a few more times.

    First Ever GAMES WORKSHOP Store Is Being Demolished

    I remember it fondly, from the time I was there. (It was in the wrong country, after all.) But if the building and area has seen better days, it was before that.

    Age of Worms Adventure Path

    4 out of 5 rating for Age of Worms Adventure Path This AP has an excellent start in the small town of Diamond Lake. A connection they ought to have done more with. The later scenarios are generally very good, but some are boring dungeon crawls.Brilliant Greyhawk stuff.

    WHAT'S IN THE BOX? A Look Inside The ELEMENTAL EVIL Board Game!

    I have some vague memory about that, now that you mention it. A new game in their, frankly, rather popular and selling series of boardgames based. I'm very interested to see how this will differ from the earlier. Will the rules have changed to reflect 5e more? I presume Wizards would want...

    D&D Attack Wing Starter Set

    5 out of 5 rating for D&D Attack Wing Starter Set Dragons dog fighting in the skies. What could go wrong?Seriously, this is a nice game. Taking the Flightpath basic system (Wings of war, X-Wing, and the immediate predecessor Star Trek: Attack Wing) and making it more interesting by adding a...

    Spellbook Cards

    4 out of 5 rating for Spellbook Cards Spell cards are very useful. Put the spells you have prepared in a card holder and you have a handy spell book.Concentration isn't marked on these cards, but on the other hand you know it requires concentration when it says 'up to 1 min.', instead of '1...

    D&D Icons of the Realms Starter Set

    3 out of 5 rating for D&D Icons of the Realms Starter Set These figures are not very impressive, but a good starter set of prepainted character minis.And yet another Drizzt. I know he's popular and all, but if you've been buying D&D plastic miniatures you probably have a couple of versions already.

    D&D 5th Edition Starter Set

    5 out of 5 rating for D&D 5th Edition Starter Set This is a very nice starter set.But what really makes it good is the adventure. Well worth it even if you do not want it as a starter.The pregens are tied nicely to the scenario, but you can easily run it with other characters as well.

    Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook

    3 out of 5 rating for Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook This is a very solid set of rules. Fundamentally it is a cleaned up D&D 3.5, errataing a lot of things.Had it stopped there it would have been good, but when trying to rebalance things they always add more. All classes have more abilities, you...

    D&D 5th Edition Player's Handbook

    5 out of 5 rating for D&D 5th Edition Player's Handbook One of the things that stuck out in this edition of the PHB was that it was very well written. The texts are inspiring and evocative. Look at things like the backgrounds and you'll find character ideas jumping out at you.The rules are...

    D&D 5th Edition Monster Manual

    4 out of 5 rating for D&D 5th Edition Monster Manual This is a very good MM.I would have given it five stars if the monster descriptions had been longer and more detailed.They are better than the one in the 4e MM, but shorter than 3e. And not at all as good as many of the 2e texts.

    D&D 5E Where have all the fan made backgrounds gone?

    I predicted that there'd be a lot of threads about fan made backgrounds by now, but I seem to fail at Divination. So, where are they? I can only find the ones on the Hack & Slash blog. Surely there are many more?

    It's missing the D&D: Attack Wing game and Icons of the Realms miniatures from Wizkids. http://wizkidsgames.com/dnd/ (Can't see the release date for Attack Wing, but I've seen it somewhere.)

    The Foundling (and working link)

    Dragon presents a new fiction piece, by Mike Resnick*, and there's githzerai - and clearly aimed towards me! (Though I haven't had time to read it yet.) Sadly, the link is broken. (Wizards, come on! Links aren't that hard!) This time there's a 'The_' that shouldn't be in there. Here's the...

    Clash of Steel up, normal link broken

    The latest Dungeon adventure is up, Clash of Steel. As usual the link given on WotC's page is broken (though the above works), and will probably not be fixed for quite a few hours. This seems to happen every day now. This time they wrote that it should be in the #171 folder, and not as it...

    D&D 4E Shado's 4e Color Landscape Sheets v1.2: UPDATED 6/24

    Well, seeing that Shado hasn't been seen on these boards in a little over a year, I doubt this is the best way to contact him.
