We’ve got a lot of great links for you this week. there’s some awesome things going on, including great conversations, new videos, and a couple of hilarious and insightful comics.
Ameron, over at Dungeon’s Master is blogging A to Z this month, and has compounded this by doing an A to Z post inside one of his A to Z posts. The ABC’s of Eberron gives a great overview of an awesome setting, from Aundair to Zilargo.
Wizards.com featured a step by step adventure comic this week. Maybe bring more magic users next time. Or pesticide for the vegepygmies.

Not only is JL8 a comic about kindergarten versions of the Justice League, but it plays around with some really interesting themes. here, Book store owner Neil explains the value of stories to Superman.

If there’s one person we love here, it’s Ze Frank. He’s just plain brilliant, and his latest video is great. It applies to artists but also to gaming. the only way to GM is to start doing it, and sort out all the kinks. Everyone makes mistakes when they start, but we learn from them and move forward.
That’s all for this week, we’ll see you next week for another roundup!
