Recently, while in a not-so-local gaming store, I encountered re-releases of the 1st Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons books. Upon looking closer, I discovered that sales of these reprints assist the Gary Gygax Memorial Fund!
I had intended to respond to Vanir’s review on Critical Hits of the session of Director’s Cut: Survival Horror that I ran via comment, but it looked like this was going to be rather long and decided to make a post instead. While I agree with most of what he said, I wanted to clarify a few things as well as give a view from the other side of the GM screen.
So, it has been a week since GenCon ended for the year and I have been thinking over how this year was different over previous years. What I’ve discovered is, this year wasn’t defined by what was present but by what was absent.
About a half year ago, I purchased a Lotus dice bag from Games by Gamers since my old dice bag no longer closed well and did not hold all of my dice. I have refrained from writing a review until now since I have had many dice bags that looked sturdy but wore out after a short period of time, and I wanted to ensure that the quality of this bag lived up to its reputation.
As you may have noticed, I have not posted much lately. My weekly gaming group has been down too many people to role-play very often, so we have mostly stuck to board games. On the weeks that we did role-play, we mainly played one-offs to test upcoming products for a number of companies and I am not allowed to post details. Since this makes for a boring site, I have decided to start a new column!
