Lands of Pergerron: The Quest for Aladonsis Gedar
This is a short module/outline that I worked up in case I needed a filler scenario for my regular night. It's sort of turning into a mini-treatment of a corner of Pergerron not yet disclosed, however, so I may focus more on this in days to come. Unlike much...

Deep story games like The Last of Us vs. the rigorous punishment genre of Bloodborne
The Last of Us: Remastered I finished The Last of Us (Remastered Edition) this weekend. It was easily the best game of the last generation of consoles, and still one of the best of the current generation. I'd have to rank it right next to Dragon Age: Awaken...

Princes of the Apocalypse is in my hands
I now have The Temple of Elemental Evil Princes of the Apocalypse in my hands, thanks to the FLGS which participates in that Wizards Play Network. It looks like Magic must have had a release too, there seemed to be a horde of card players at the store today...

Eyes of the Stone Thief is in!
I received my copy of Eyes of the Stone Thief this Thursday, and it looks....meaty. In fact it would be hard to imagine just how meaty merely from staring at the PDF. Now that I have the tome I shall dive in and check it out, but I gotta say, it looks formi...

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.
