Looking at DC Comics Post-Convergence I: Dr. Fate, Doomed and Black Canary
I didn't think I'd write about anything post Convergence for DC (they're calling it "DCyou")....they were introducing roughly 20 new titles, many of which didn't look like anything remotely aimed at me (i.e. Batmite and Bizarro, for example). Then there wer...

Watchers of the Sullen Vigil: the Emon Mage Silagastar Hesteros, cursed by fire (S&W)
Wednesday included a new introduction to the land, races and demi-humans of Sarvaelen. Among those options were the Emoniae, a sort of "ancient decadent magical human race" ala Melniboneans who have dabbled with the elemental lords for so long that many of ...

Five Basic Roleplaying Sourcebooks I Would Really Like To See
With the recent changes at Chaosium, followed by the Big Ass Sale which has cleaned me out as I acquire all remaining BRP/CoC books I don't already own, it got me to thinking about what Basic Roleplaying still could use in the way of sourcebooks. Here are f...

The New Metamorphosis Alpha
I did not know that there was more than one Metamorphosis Alpha in the works. In addition to the pricey but faithful reprinting of the original at Goodman Games, apparently Signal Fire Studios has a new edition of the game out now in PDF, with a print pre-o...

An interesting revelation on a "Worst of Fantasy" compilation list I stumbled across
Over on bestfantasybooks.com there's a list of the blogger's 30 picks for Worst Fantasy Novels ever . He discusses his methodology and admits its his own list, but also makes cogent arguments for why he feels as he does about these novels. So recently I got...

A New Introduction to the Sarvaelen: the Watchers of the Sullen Vigil Setting
In reviewing all I had written for the "Watchers" setting of Sarvaelen I was shocked (not really) to realize I had been letting it organically grow over a series of vignettes but had never established much of a "core introduction" for the world. To fix that...

A Brief Moment for Pathfinder Online
...I said I would play the free trial, and I did. You can do the same, but I don't hate you, so I can't earnestly recommended it. Now, for a list of ten observations about Pathfinder Online that were revealed in about two sessions of 15 minutes of game play...

"The 2 Hour Test:" Exploring bad Zombie Sandbox Crafting Games and Testing the Steam Refund System
I try not to buy "early access" titles on Steam but every now and then I succumb to the appearance of a great game and the overt love that some reviewers seem to exhibit for these alpha and beta releases. If you hang out on Steam at all you probably have no...

Best comic shop in Albuquerque, I moved over here after two other bad experiences locally. They keep great stock and have an excellent range of back issues, orders are in every week and they offer a nice discount for subscriptions. The staff has been running this store for ages....and they know their stuff. Good people.
