Hope you’re having a great Saturday so far. Just to let you know, there’ll be no posts from Dec 16 to Dec 30, on account of us taking a few weeks off for the holidays. Still, many more things to come after that. Also, if you’re local, you can catch me live at next week’s Nerd Nite, playing music as their artist in residence! It’s at 7pm on Tuesday, Dec 10 at the Rum Runner Pub in Kitchener, Ontario. Anyway, lots of great links this week, including mini hacks, good games, sounds, and real-life D&D.
It’s Thanksgiving and Black Friday and all manner of other things that we don’t have here in Canada. It’s a busy weekend. However, all of our links are free and contain no calories or trans fats, so take a look around and I’m sure you’ll find something you can take home with you.
Wicked things are happening this week. If you’re local to Kitchener-Waterloo, you can find me tonight and tomorrow playing at the G33K Art Show, from 6:30-8:00 tonight, and 4:30-6:00 tomorrow! Also, on Wednesday the 27th, we’ll be meeting at 7pm at the Rum Runner in downtown Kitchener for our first GM Jam, where we’ll cackle at the misfortunes of our players and swap tips about what’s best in GMing.
Short post today because it’s late and because I am watching Desert Bus and playing Feed the Beast again.
Remember, when failing a blogging challenge, it’s important to fail it as much as possible kids. No, really I’ve just had a lot going on and had trouble finding my focus. I even gave Ryan the month off intending to tackle the challenge head on. That was, in retrospect, not a great plan. But I’m back, and we’re good to go with another TPKtalk!
Many awesome videos this week, as well as a killer kickstarter and a challenge! Which I have accepted. See you on Monday and for the next thirty days straight with the 30 Days of Gamemastering!
It’s Saturday, which means yet another roundup of nifty articles and tips, including the thrilling conclusion to Mike’s monument post, some thoughts on starting campaigns and Hank Green talking about maps. Go!
Basically all my favourite posts this week came from various writers at Gnome Stew, which isn’t that surprising seeing as it’s one of the best gaming blogs around. We’ve also got a great video from Epic Level TV. Lightning round!
We’ve got some great links this week. Articles on pacing, timing, and worldbuilding. Also some good deals on some wicked rpg books. You can also come back tomorrow to see some livestreamed D&D in Legends of Madjan!
It’s that time again. Posts have been a bit sparse this week because Ryan’s phd is intrusive. Higher education is like construction in that things are rarely done on time. Nonetheless, we’ve got a great roundup this week with some GMing advice and some food for thought on issues around the gaming table.
