I feel 14 Again! Pat Robertson Says D&D Will Destroy My Life

As a teenager in the 80s I felt nothing but pride that Pat Robertson, ignorant and fanatical anti-D&D crusader hated my hobby. My thinking was that if an idiot of such epic scale hated my hobby then it must be worth doing! Eventually the hysteria faded and gamers got on with the business of gaming. […]

 Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness on Syfy Tonight! Revel in the Horror of a Badly Managed Intellectual Property

Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness on Syfy Tonight! Revel in the Horror of a Badly Managed Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property (IP) is legal shorthand for all the stuff you brand with your creation. “Star Wars” toys, “Pokemon” chewing gum and “Hello Kitty”  t-shirts are examples of a company leveraging their creation to expand the brand. Oh, and they generate income through licensing, of course. The danger lies in flooding the market with too […]

Monte Cook Left the D&D Next Project. So What?

Monte Cook Left the D&D Next Project. So What?

Unless you spend long periods in a portable hole (with a Necklace of Adaptation to breathe) you are aware that Monte Cook left the D&D 5th Edition project.  Though gracious in his leave-taking  and stressing his departure related to a disagreement with WOTC and not in any way about the game design itself, the game community seemed  […]

The 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons Dead Pool--Join Now!

The 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons Dead Pool–Join Now!

“Dead Pools” are slightly creepy betting pools where participants bet on when  a famous person is going to die. Betting on death is in poor taste, but betting on when 4th Editions Dungeons and Dragons goes away is just good fun. I believe that Wizards of the Coast’s current business model is to flog the […]

Do RPG Bloggers Focus Too Much on Dungeons and Dragons?

Just for fun, I counted the number of 4th Edition related posts on the front page of rpgbloggers.com today. Since many, if not most RPG bloggers contribute to this site, it made for an easy way to sample today’s posts. Even with a fairly strict criteria (4e focused posts only, not just mentioning it) I […]

Would Anyone Use The 4th Edition Rules If They Were NOT The Dungeons and Dragons System?

“Dungeons and Dragons” is more than a game, it is a cultural phenomenon. Many, if not most gamers, have fond memories of playing this game in their childhood. It was the first RPG I ever played and I played it off and on for 25 years. The very name “Dungeons and Dragons” wears a warm […]

Fakiness: Bring Back Tripping in 4th Edition!

This post is not about old vs new school. It is not about game balance or appropriateness. Nor is it about ho accurate the rules are in simulating “reality” in 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons. It is about fakiness. “Fakiness” is my term for the ability of any role-playing game to accurately simulate the completely […]
