Phoenix Comicon 2014 Exhibitors and Vendors with Links and Descriptions

Phoenix Comicon 2014 is next week and I decided to take a look at who was setting up at the show in the exhibitor/vendor area before I show up. Sadly, the Phoenix Comicon vendor list only lists names and booth numbers but no site links or descriptions. So I fixed it. After much effort, here […]

Repeating D&D History

A multitude of recent announcements from Wizards of The Coast has altered the landscape for the immediate future. The first involved the release schedule of D&D Next (or is it 5E, I’ve honestly lost track) while the other heralded an eventual Open Gaming License.

Thereby devolving himself back to a monkey and seeing the […]

Trask Versus Player Character Skills: A Gamer Tries Character Skills In Real Life

Thoughts on a Numenera Campaign

For the past couple of months I subjected my players to a Numenera campaign filled with wonder, weird and unfathomable technology.  Now that I have some actual play time in I thought a post appropriate on my thoughts so far. This is not a review of Numenera so much as my feelings on how the […]
