Last weekend, I ran the “Mists Of Madness” module from Goodman Games that I bought at Gen Con for my wife Katherine so that we could learn the rules. We got about half of the way through the module in our first session and did not have to look much up after about the first three encounters.

So, I sit around corrected. Granted, this is not the first time that I have been wrong about something, even with regards to gaming. However, in this case, I believe that the confusion is justified.
Recently I started playing the MapleStory MMORPG, and it turned out to be a lot more fun that I had expected. I went into this endeavor figuring that the game was probably aimed at pre-teens and that I would blow a couple of hours on it just to see what it was like. Since it was free, I would just be out the time I spent downloading the client and playing it.
At Gen Con I finally caught up with the rest of the world and bought the core rule books for 4th Edition. Well, most of them anyway; I didn’t get the "Monster Manual" yet. So far several things have struck me as odd.
