I have a pretty large family. Most of us are in Wyoming, though that’s shifting now–I’m the oldest and I went the hell away for college and only returned to the home state a few years ago, but as my cousins reach the age of autonomy some have left. One actually came TO Wyoming, though, […]
The Finale! What’s the single most important lesson you’ve learned from DnD? As I just said, I’ve taken a lot from DnD. My teaching style is profoundly influenced by my growth as a DM, which is how I can walk into a classroom where there are three of seven students present, only two of whom […]
If you had it to do all over again, would you do anything differently when you first started gaming? My last couple posts got a little maudlin re: groups that no longer game together.

What’s the movie you immediately associate with DnD? Conan. The original Conan. I don’t need to explain that, do I? We’d straight up put the DVD into a dude’s sound system, turn on the “church” equalizer setting, and game to that. I’m confident we’re not alone in this.
What’s the song you immediately associate with DnD? Since I have a few of these to knock out tonight, I was doing a little mental pre-pro, considering what I was going to say to each (spoiler: most will go pretty quickly, which leaves me time to tear the hell into Moon Knight). When it came […]
