Several regular players couldn't make our regular Hangouts game, so we played Dungeon World!

Started off with questions about the player's characters (an artificier, immolator, and an elven fighter) and background (elves were cast down from the moon and now live on the surface, unable to bear the moon's light). Once I knew what was up with everyone, we dug into their motivation for seeking the long-abandoned temple at […]

Star Wars Art

I got a finished commission from skilled Star Wars-focused artist Lorna-ka, and feel like nerding out and sharing. Dekko will be the guy I want to play in every Star Wars game going forward until whenever. http://doyce.tumblr.com/post/142415693450/i-just-got-my-first-finished-commission-from (Also? We live in the future: Lorna lives in Moscow, I found her stuff on Tumblr, contacted her […]

Mostly certainly prepping this for use with +Kaylee Testerman and +Sean Testerman

#gaming Originally shared by +Rob Donoghue Have started refining the ruleset I want to try with the little dude. Would have done it this weekend, but we played "Spy or Die Trying" instead (and it was fun!). Tellingly, the rules are refined enough that the real lifting is going to be on the actual game […]

Especially from Steve. Judd Geeks Outsperari: “ foundloveinbudapest: “ obsessiforge: “ bluandorange: “ so I’ve got this headcanon that […]

I Predict Season 3 of Tabletop is Going to Cost Me a Lot of Money

Oh dear, that's a good list. Tabletop season 3 – the complete list of games and playersLast night, we wrapped production on the third season of Tabletop. It was bittersweet for me, as always, because I’m so wiped out and teetering on exhaustion, the idea of sleeping until I don’t nee…

The D&D 5e Monster Manual is probably the best Monster Manual ever made for the game

… and yet it can hacked, updated, modified, and otherwise screwed with in many fascinating ways, which is what Zak's doing right now. Following his awesome Old One-ification of the Aboleth, he's on to Angels, and it's good, good stuff. I particularly like ranking the things based on old Hebrew lore. Playing D&D With Porn […]
