Graphic novels have a lot more prizes than they once did, including literary awards that help validate the medium. Awards season is well upon us, and I've been way behind in noting some of the most important.

The low rez map is so good that I can zoom to one quadrant and bring my laptop to its knees. Wow.

Dice: How's It Going?
How’s the harvest? Disastrously bad: Withered crops produced only cursed locusts and dysentery. Bad: Poor yields mean hard times for the coming year. Bad with some good: Too much rain flooded the fields, but the fishing industry is having a boom. Good with ...

The Kid's Kid Game: Creatures & Classrooms
The Kid woke me up this morning with an idea for his own version of D&D: Creatures and Classrooms. Monster-Teachers try to bore you (costing you Fun Points), and the students try to wear down their teachers with pranks until they retire.

Follow up: The kid took his rules into school, and has started up a game during "Centers" time. Three days in, and it sounds like things are going well—the players have discovered that the Teachers are aliens with a vulnerability to water, and have armed themselves with water guns. "I think I'll take them to Mars, today," he said at breakfast.

The Kid's Game: Chargen 1
I've been noodling with a ruleset for playing with my kid. He wants to play D&D , so it's basically Holmes on training wheels, customized towards my kid's particular proclivities. Here's a table for determining your character concept: A few notes: 1. The re...

Are your landscapes insufficiently weird? Have you tried adding eyeballs?

ALL ART FOR EXPANDED PETTY GODS IS COMPLETE AND IN PLACE!!!

And, if my count is correct, it also makes it EXACTLY 500 pieces of art in the book. A few dozen of those are either creative commons or public domain images, which means about 450 or so illustrations were contributed by the OSR community (about 100 coming from Original Petty Gods, and the other 350 specifically for Expanded Petty Gods). 

1/2 round of proofing/correcting left, and the book is freaking ready!!!

Thinking about Attributes
I'd love to know more about how the attributes in D&D originated.  Rolling dice for STR-DEX-INT-WIS-CON-CHR is the most emblematic and formative act in D&D. Maybe you've fought a melee or cast a spell or conversed with a dragon, but everyone who has ever sa...

I like that a set has aspects and monsters and players have conditions rather than hp
