Current Role-Playing Game Forums Suck–Should I Add One to Livingdice?

Enworld and RPG.net are the clear leaders  role-playing game discussions within the gaming community.  That said,  these communities are now so massive that finding anything is nearly impossible and threads quickly reach “War and Peace” in length.  If that were not bad enough, the level of discourse on these sites often degenerates to the lowest […]

Review: Duck! Duck! Go! Board Game from APE Games

Review: Duck! Duck! Go! Board Game from APE Games

“Duck! Duck! Go!” from APE Games first appeared on my radar at the GAMA Trade Show in 2009, but I did not get a chance to play it. This year, with the release of the sequel “Duck! Duck! Safari!” I contacted APE for review copies of both games and they kindly obliged. Though I have […]

My New Role-Playing Games Store is Online!

Role-playing-games-store.com is a new web site dedicated to, unsurprisingly, selling role-playing games. Yes, the content for the site comes from Amazon, but its real value is the fact I set it up with more rational categories.

Here are a couple of shots of the cover and the contents.  The format of the book is a hand-written journal, so […]

Palladium v. Trion Worlds Update: Mediation

The Palladium v. Trion World lawsuit took a surprise turn today with both parties filing a joint request to enter mediation. If approved, both parties avoid a trial.   The judge has not signed off on the order yet, but since both defendant and plaintiff submitted the request, I think approval likely.   The deadline for […]

Wizards of the Coast Gen Con Interview – Part 2 of 2 (D&D / Gamma World / Fortune Cards)

This post concludes my interview with Dungeons and Dragons designers Mike Mearls and Rodney Thompson at Gen Con. In part 1 of this series we talked about the upcoming D&D Boardgame line. However, the conversation quickly drifted into other D&D products, including Dark Sun and Gamma World. D&D RPG Stuart Greenwell (SG): The Dungeons & Dragons […]
