Review: Numenera the Role-Playing Game from Monte Cook

Numenera is Monte Cook’s latest role-playing game he successfully Kickstarted earlier this year.  I did not support the Kickstarter but its success drove my curiosity enough to play a session at Gen Con 2013.  Numenera was the highlight of Gen Con  for me and I bought the core book the next day.  It is a […]

Review: Livescribe Pulse Smartpen as a DM Tool

I know this is a game site, but sometimes I go off the reservation if I find something useful to gamers. In this case, it is a Livescribe 2 GB Pulse Smartpen.  I received my Pulse as a Christmas gift and found it very game-useful and worthy of a post.  The Pulse is a large […]
