For The Love Of XP Part 3: My Love Of XP

For The Love Of XP Part 3: My Love Of XP

Good evening everyone! We have arrived at the final part to the short series entitles For The Love of XP. You can find the first part here and you can find the second part here. The short of it is that I wanted to talk about why I love XP and prefer it’s use enough that I added it to Star Trek Adventures. In the first part I briefly go over my experience finding games with alternative advancement methods and…

Review: Sins RPG

Review: Sins RPG

Today I have a review of a game called Sins. This new RPG is only just premiering on Kickstarter but there is still plenty to learn about it over on their Facebook page. First Falling Leaf Design was kind enough to give Untamed Dice a review copy of the game to try out before the project went live. You can listen to the first episode of that tomorrow, but I have plenty to discuss about Sins so let’s get started….

Libris Monstrum Tomorrow & Lots This Weekend!

Libris Monstrum Tomorrow & Lots This Weekend!

Hello everyone! I have been delayed in getting things up the past few days because I have found a new job. There are a number of upsides: management position/experience, web design/update responsibilities, part time, good hours, is exactly the part time I need right now. However, there are some issues: shadow open and close Monday followed by two full shifts 90%+ on my own. There was a lot to do and a ton to learn, but it left my with…

Quick update!

Quick update!

Hello everyone, I hope your weekends have been well! Friday night we got in another session of Luxarrah, adding even more to our folder of audio to give to you all. Tomorrow night patrons will get the next episode of Untamed Dice, which will be a Luxarrah episode.  Tuesday was going to be a Wandering Dev Diary, but I think it’ll be the next Libris Monstrum. This will be the first revisitation featuring nagas. If you have anything I missed…

Libris Monstrum #9: Vampires

Libris Monstrum #9: Vampires

Good evening everyone! The Libris Monstrum has not come out for almost a month now (I think) and the main reason is because i wasn’t sure which monster I wanted to write about. You may be saying, “but you can just keep writing them so who cares which one is next!?” Well, you would be kind of right. The next one will be down to a vote, and while I do have some (specifically choosing 4 options) control over that,…

Libris Monstrum #8: Slaadi

Here we are in the 4th vote-decided entry into Libris Monstrum and that means one more of my choosing and one of your before I go back and take a second look at the previous ten entries. If you are worried that we won’t get to a monster you prefer, let me know and it’ll get into the voting. Until then lets talk about a creature made for D&D, one which has had a history as something a bit silly,…

Libris Monstrum #7: Rats

Libris Monstrum #7: Rats

Rats! The bane of, well, a pretty small number of adventures probably. They are creatures common to low level adventures, but I have never seen anyone taken down by a rat before. Of any kind. Still there are plenty of ways a rat or group of rats could take out a party. Especially if the DM is using something strange and exciting. Today’s Libris Monstrum concerns the simple (and not so simple) rats of fantasy role-play! Well, some of them…

Libris Monstrum #6: Kaiju

Libris Monstrum #6: Kaiju

The day is calm, peaceful. Not a single sign of anything bad. No demons, no thugs, no undead….nothing. Until a roar unlike anything, including those dragons you fought, could compare to. The ground shakes and the day goes from nice and serene to something more akin the end of the world. That is the effect of a kaiju as it makes its way through a city. Kaiju are a classic monster that has a long, if small, presence throughout much…

A Look Back At City of Heroes & Why I Love Games

A Look Back At City of Heroes & Why I Love Games

Do you know the exact moment you fell in love with D&D? I do, but this isn’t about that. This is about looking back to an inexact moment, maybe a group of moments. An experience or set of them which engendered you to playing games as a group. Not just any games, mind you, the kind of games where you work together to tell a story and overcome obstacles. Something you can look back to with fondness, knowing that without…
