Nuthin’ ever goes smooth! The players had done the job, escorted the runaway rich girl to her secret elopement with her beloved. On the way, we had avoided agents of her villainous husband-to-be, Tempelton Colt Steele (not a name I came up with, I swear), mechanical malfunctions and the predations of frenzied, cannibalistic Reavers. They’d done the… Read More RPG Mega Mix, Round One Review: Firefly the RPG
It’s 454 kilometres from Kyoto to Tokyo, which, Google maps tells me, would take me 96 hours to walk. Apparently, most of that way would be along a 4 lane motorway.

That was until my lovely girlfriend purchased me a subscription to Infinity Crate, who have been… Read More Monthly Mini Madness – A Model Box Review
I’m a big fan of using props in role playing games. I know that the Theatre of the Mind has an infinite special effects budget, but we humans are an avaricious lot and there is something special about getting treasure, real hold-it-in-your-hand treasure, that really excites my players.
I’ll admit, I was initially a little wary of picking up a copy of Tales From the Yawning Portal. I’m familiar with all of the Dungeons it contains and I even own a copy of a few of them.
