Time to devolve

This was in comic ads last month. I'm just getting around to getting it off my camera.

D&D Miniatures: Troll Evolution

I thought maybe they were putting out Classic/Current miniature sets or something, which i would be very interested in (for the Classic, of course). But that doesn't seem to be the case. I guess they're just touting how their creature designs have evolved. Which is a shame, because, c'mon! The current troll on the end there is just a big generic monster. That weird looking thing with the rubbery body and the panicked-but-terrifying face on the left is awesome.

Recap #43

Tips on Fighting Lich Kings

Due to many (many) complaints by some who don't like to read things that take more than a minute, i've changed how recaps are presented. The link above will take you to a bulletpointed summary of events with an option to go to another page with the detailed story. So far, i've only done this with the current recap and last month's recap. Eventually, i will get around to doing this with all of the past recaps (mebbe). Enjoy.

Nerds in the Mist

We had a guest this past D&D session who came to find out what all this Dungeons & Dragons hype was about (and then write about it for a class). Here's an excerpt:

He hands me a sheet, and it reads: Bolin Braveaxe. Fighter. There are many numbers on this sheet, and each of them, he assures me, were painstakingly subjected to the trials of chance. Many geometrically-complex dice were thrown in the name of Bolin Braveaxe, Dwarven General. Bolin is apparently immensely strong, somewhat learned whilst simultaneously being stubbornly ignorant11. Bolin is athletically competent, and possesses the physical fortitude of a brick wall. He's also about half as charming as any of Snow White's Seven Dwarves. I believe all of this because the paper says so. As far as I'm concerned, that's where Bolin exists, too. I cradle the form carefully, not letting it from my sight. For a second, I thought of a grumpy dwarf, somewhere, pondering his existence.

Read the full paper here.

P.S. Rollover text box footnotes and reciprocal anchors are awesome.
