I grew up with a kind of candy-coated version of King Arthur and the knights of the round table: A high medieval romance full of jousting knights in shining armor, courtly romance, white-walled castles blooming with turrets and colorful banners, and of course, a kindly old wizard named Merlin. When I got old enough to [...]

The Unbelievable Orphaned Fiction of 1d4chan


There’s no denying that image board/online community 4chan’s reputation as one of the internet’s dankest, darkest sewers is well deserved.

There’s a lot of [...]

Hold the Line in Savage Worlds: ‘Weird Wars: Rome’


I think of so many things when I hear the name “Rome”. Marble columns and statues of supreme craftsmanship, gladiators, wine, pagan temples, the colosseum, the senate, and of course, the soldiers of the Roman Legion: highly trained, disciplined fighting men who brought the might of Rome to the furthest corners of the known world.

Why Aren’t There Any Good Movies Based On Video Games? (Part Three – Conclusion)


100510-N-0869H-157
There are three things that we can count on as foregone conclusions when it comes to movies based on video games: The first is that they’ll probably linger in development hell forever. The second is that by the time they finally come out, it will be so late that they will have lost the initial momentum (and potentially the audience) behind the release of the game. The third is that they’ll likely be very cheap and very disappointing. The first two are typical Hollywood, and there’s not a whole heck of a lot we can do about it. The third? Well, that’s different. That’s on us, guys. Or at least, a lot of us.

Make Dungeons On The Fly With Adventurer Dungeon-Building Dice


f3c4_adventurer_dungeon-building_dice_setThose uninitiated into the pleasures of tabletop role-playing – especially fantasy games like Dungeons & Dragons - might hear the word “dungeon” and think “torture chamber”, but in a gaming context, a “dungeon” means any labyrinth-like environment populated with monsters, traps and other challenges for player characters to overcome.

A Gamer’s Pilgrimage: The Compleat Strategist


photo 7I get to New York City once a year, and while for the most part I’m busy covering New York Comic Con, I also have a little time here and there to see the city. New York is an incredible place, but you can’t see all of it. You couldn’t even if you came every week. There’s just too much, so I have to choose one or two places to visit while I’m there. This past visit I chose “The Strand” (More about this another time) and “The Compleat Strategist”.
