Review: Yu Escape / Monday

Valentine’s Day is here and if you’re a regular to my blog, you know that means it’s time for another shameful game review. You’d think that picking out “adult” games to review would be a fairly easy task. After all, Steam is flooded with an endless amount of cheap, lewd titles these days.

Darkwalker on Moonshae – Douglas Niles

After finishing the Dragonlance Chronicles last year, I started feeling the itch to read some more D&D fantasy. My first instinct was to move on to the next trilogy in the Dragonlance saga.

2024 Look Ahead

As 2023 comes to a close I want to take a moment to share my plans for the coming year.  Fair warning, however. The paragraphs to follow are chock-full of inside baseball and boring details into the way my mind works. I started my RPG catch-up about two years ago. That’s a long time!

I have my doubts about...

Third Party D&D: Deep Magic Vol. 1 & 2 (Kobold Press)

When it comes to third-party D&D publishers, Kobold Press is probably one of my favorites. Most players will know them from their Tome of Beasts books, but Kobold Press has been creating a variety of supplements since 5E first rolled out. Over the years, some of their most popular releases have been magic-themed. These released include new spells, background options,...
