Roll an Adventure Using the 5e Dungeon Master’s Guide — Part III

Rollin'

Over the last few weeks I’ve had a chance to sit down with the new 5e Dungeon Master’s Guide (DMG), the latest book release for the new 5e Dungeons & Dragons and, in my opinion, a grand-slam for Wizards of the Coast. Along with the 5e Player’s Handbook (PH) and the 5e Monster Manual (MM), players (that includes Dungeon Masters, or DMs) now have access to everything they need to host and play some legendary adventures of their own.

D&D Adventurers League: Session 18 Report and Player Wrap-Up

Adventurers League

Last night’s session was a little bittersweet for me, I must admit.

Firefly: The Game

I was late to the party with Firefly—by the time I watched the TV show, it had already been canceled, fans had rallied, and the followup movie Serenity had already been released. But, eventually I caught up with the rest of the world and discovered why everyone loves Mal and his crew so much. It’s kind of like that with Firefly: The Game, too. Continue reading

Game Review: Manifest Is Full of Shipping, Storms, & Scoundrels

Manifest

It’s the 1920s, and shipping goods and passengers around the world is big business—but a dangerous one. In Manifest, you’ll need to find the best contracts, pick up and deliver goods, and (just maybe) engage in a little piracy from time to time. Continue reading

Book Review: Chicks Dig Gaming

CDGfeatured

I’m a huge fan of the sharing of memories with fellow enthusiasts of geeky stuff. If you’ve got recollections of getting lost in a maze of twisty passages, all alike, I dig that. Or if you never got all the sand out of Kenner Luke’s hollow arm after recreating his Tatooine adventures; or if you can vividly remember the real-world setting in which you finally reached the words, “Well, I’m back,” he said. for the first time, then you’ve got a story I want to hear.
