Fantasy literature is bursting at the seams with incredible world-building, from the medieval trope definer that is Middle-Earth, to the satirical Discworld. So which is your favourite fantasy world? Are you a Narnia fanatic,...

Yeah same here, but I'm sort of in a "beggars can't be choosers" mindset so I'll take what I can get.....

Savage Worlds vs. BRP for Pulp Action
I ran part one of a two-part BRP Astounding Adventures game Wednesday. The session was fun, but I realized as I was playing that there are, in fact, other systems that will do pulp better than BRP, and with more bells and whistles. Specifically: Savage Worl...

Hastur the Unspeakable for Dungeons & Dragons 5E
With all apologies to my players, this was what showed up on Wednesday's game. I tried to simplify the Pathfinder version a bit while skewing more toward the CoC 6th edition entry. I figure Hastur in a sword & sorcery manifestation will lean more toward a t...

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.
