Two monsters? Or two heroes? I'm a minimalist. It's not the "only own 100 items" nonsense, nor the "I don't buy food except beans and rice" type. It's this: "Keep the best, cut the crap." Since coming back the States six years ago, I've accumulated more and more stuff. Games, clothes, documents, random tech garbage, … Continue reading Minimalism
Found this on the cover of the instructions for a game from called "WORST CASE SCENARIO: Game of Surviving Life." I just think it's funny. Imagine this in front of Dungeons and Dragons, Shadowrun, or Call of Cthulhu game... When a life is imperiled to a dire situation is at hand, safe alternatives may not … Continue reading Goofy game introduction
If you run RPGs for kids, I could use your help in creating a fantasy RPG that best fits that niche. Right now, I'm looking for the common concerns and ideal outcomes for such a game. If you could take the time to give your opinion, it could drastically improve the game and the advice … Continue reading Give your opinion to help make a GREAT role-playing game for kids
Diamond-headed Dragonslayer The name "Dragonslayer Adventures" has been dropped in favor of "Adventure Hour!" "Adventure Hour!?" you ask. "Isn't that already available for free?" And if you clicked either of the links above, you know this is still the case. But what you might not know is that the game is getting a new coat … Continue reading Adventure Hour! – In development!

Overview Bought this because Ben Milton worked on it. I'm a simple man. Ran it for my brother, mother, and father whilst in Amish country, hence the absence. None of us have seen Labyrinth, though I likely will after this at some point. Brother was a goblin, dad a Firey, mom a human. We played … Continue reading A-Maze Us with a Maze (Labyrinth Review)
Thanks to Necropraxis on Chris McDowall's Bastionland podcast for convincing me to play this one. I have sunk over 40 hours into this game, which for me, is a lot to put into any video game RPG. I tire easily. But Dark Souls is different. It's an RPG where you don't win by default. Victory … Continue reading Dark Souls Life Lessons
I'm continuing to doodle scenes and monsters that I dream up and steal from various sources. Here's a collection from this month. Enjoy.
Art is a self-taught, self-sought endeavor for me as of late. Hope you enjoy. 🙂 When I run fantasy role-playing games for kids on Outschool, I always label the classes as "Life Skills." Frankly, it doesn't really count as any of the other tags like "Social Studies" or "English" or "Math" even though RPGs contain … Continue reading Playing with Youngers: Do RPGs teach you anything?
