In the garden of good and evil

I like Dungeons and Dragons. I really do, but I find that some of the people who play the game get too stuck on the rules to allow themselves the flexibility required to create a good story. In this case, a DM had a group of players who decided to make use of the ever-treacherous

Pathfinder Application

Soon I intend to Open Source a Pathfinder Application on GitHub. Something for me to start working for in among the rest of the Open Source Community. I intend to create a DLL that allows you to easily create and maintain characters. It’ll calculate their bonuses automatically, attack bonuses, character traits based on level, and

An Ambitious Project

I like gaming. Whether it be on the PC, Console, or sitting down at a table with some friends, I love it. I don’t have the stamina for video games that I used to, but I can play Tabletop games for hours and hours. I used to post some content from our games here, back

Springfield G.A.M.E.

This is the first time in four years that I will not be able to personally attend this fantastic convention in Springfield Missouri. This was the second convention focused on comics and gaming that I’d ever been to.

Hoard of the Dragon Queen – Session 2

The Mayor actually turned out to be “Governor Nighthill” – Governor being his first name, oddly enough. He was indeed an elderly man, stooped and wizened from his advanced years. But his eyes were bright as he quickly pointed to the surrounding area and begged the heroes to help save his town. As he was

Player Retention

I published an eBook based on an earlier blog post. That blog post detailed my notes from a panel that I did back in October for Springfield G.A.M.E. You can find my eBook here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00P841VBA It’s called “Player Retention” and it focuses primarily on keeping players coming back to your gaming table each week by

Hoard of the Dragon Queen – Session 1

Hoard of the Dragon Queen Ghesh, a Dragonling Cleric of Lliiara set off on an adventure from Amn. Traveling with him were the Tiefling siblings Elsen and Kallista; Wizard and Rogue, respectively.  Their journey was leisurely; certainly the easiest gold any of them had made, protecting the simple caravan of items bound for the town
