For The Love Of XP

For The Love Of XP

Today I wanted to write about something that I have been thinking a great deal about over the past year. In this time I have been introduced to a bunch of new games all with different ways of providing character advancement. From standard D&D level advancement to the somewhat bartering XP of Cypher to gaining XP through failure in Powered by the Apocalypse games, there are so many different methods of advancing characters. Most recently I have begun playing Star…

Resources For Every GM: Alternate Games Part 4

Resources For Every GM: Alternate Games Part 4

I talk a lot about Dungeons & Dragons on here. That’s the place my brain lives when it comes to RPGs, despite how often I venture away from it. No matter what, the root of my thinking lies in that realm. The result is I don’t talk about other games I love quite as much. Unless you count the reviews I do, but those tend to be more small publisher stuff. If not less well known, less talked about. So…

High Powered Games

Today, I have three items for you that will aid in these endeavors and add some interesting items to your…

Splinter Is Here!

Splinter Is Here!

You’ll hear this again in the intro, but I just want to mention that this episode doesn’t have our best audio work. There was a balance that had to be struck between cutting passing vehicles out (not just loud ones) and keeping voiced intelligible. Things came out pretty good, considering, but regardless we hope you enjoy our Splinter one shot. If you are interested in learning more check the game’s site out here.

(Mini) Review: Schleyscape Episode 1

(Mini) Review: Schleyscape Episode 1

Recently I was lucky enough to find out what one of the great D&D map makers, Mike Schley, has been working on of late. The answer came when he reached out to me, among others, to take a look at his latest project called Schleyscapes. You can check out some of Mike’s work over on his site (here) and it features maps you may recognize from products like Curse of Strahd, but lets talk about Schleyscapes! This isn’t an adventure…
