Boppin’ and Blog Hoppin’: Day Eighteen

What’s the first gaming convention you attended? I’ve done the convention thing twice. Twice! I’m from Wyoming, it’s not really a thing. We do have some friends who hit up Comic-Con in Denver, and graciously invite us every year, but that is a very different thing to me. For instance, I had to look up […]

Boppin’ and Blog Hoppin’: Day Fifteen

What was the first edition of DnD you didn’t enjoy? Why? Oh man, this is a¬†great question. Think it has a bit of overlap with the edition wars question that crops up next, so I’ll try to take this in lil’ bites. The first edition of DnD I didn’t enjoy was 3rd…or more accurately, the […]

Like, you’d go there to buy books, […]

Boppin’ and Blog Hoppin’: Day Seven

If we get really technical, there’s at least a chance I paid cash monies for a set of DnD dice prior to my PHB. My dice have disappeared/walked off/been stolen maybe […]

Yes, Gaming

I made a Wiki. I’m working up another focused on the Tinderbox campaign. My sudden resurgence in Obsidian Portal related activity is tied into the potential for an actual, honest-to-pants, tabletop gaming group. I also created a googledoc analyzing 4e’s available classes, which I might import to here at some point. I tried to go […]
