Waterdeep: Dragon Heist – Chase to the Vault

This is a summary of the second to last session for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist on my Sunday Group. It’s been a wonderful game to follow up after Icewindale. Tensions were high as the party chased after the Little orphan that they had already met who ran off with the Stone of Golorr. Following the kidsContinue reading “Waterdeep: Dragon Heist – Chase to the Vault”

Organized Play

Dear Readers, as you may know, or at least could have guessed, I am an organizer for Adventurers League, Wizards of the Coast organized Play for Dungeons and Dragons. Organized Play is very different than “normal” D&D play in a variety of ways. It’s actually, in addition to being called organized play, called “standardized” play.Continue reading “Organized Play”

Miniature Painting Project: Aasimar Paladin

Have you ever gotten so caught up in a project that it just consumed you for a little while? Yeah, that was me. Remember that Paladin I was painting? I totally forgot to take step by step pictures. Dear Readers, for about 2 hours, this miniature became my obsession. I was tapped by the miniatureContinue reading “Miniature Painting Project: Aasimar Paladin”

How-To DM: Converting Old Modules/Adventures

If there’s an activity that I enjoy as much as I enjoy miniature painting, it is the act of converting old modules. As I have detailed before, there’s an old adventure in Dungeon magazine issue 53, called “Clarshh’s Sepulchre” that is easily one of my most enjoyable modules to run. The best part of thisContinue reading “How-To DM: Converting Old Modules/Adventures”

Pardon to everyone, but I was out the session prior to the writing of this post, but I will do my best to summarize events since then.

The victors helped themselvesContinue reading “TGAPP: Racing After Rumors in Red Fern”

Miniature Restoration Project: Mistletoe

And some of you may remember, one of my favorite projects that I do that are miniature related is to restore my parents’ old pewter miniatures. Today, we have with us an old, what I believe, is a ranger. He might be something else, but I doubt it. In any case, his name is Mistletoe.Continue reading “Miniature Restoration Project: Mistletoe”

TGAPP: Delving Into Goblin Cave

The Inglorious Ingrates had just finished breaking through the sprig perimeter, and they had started their way over to the goblin hideout Arkon had located prior.

TheContinue reading “TGAPP: Delving Into Goblin Cave”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale

Dear Readers, due to the…decisions of the party, the campaign ended rather…abruptly. And no, it wasn’t a TPK…Also, the ranger/rogue and the fighter/rogue were gone and we had two substitute players: a halfling and a goliath barbarian. The battle against the demilich continued, with two new allies joining the fight! Upon joining, the goliath barbarianContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale”

This Was Supposed to Be a Different Post..

The original plan was to write a post about running a game for young children who are brand new to dungeons & dragons. Originally, I was supposed to be doing just that tonight. That did not happen. When the organizer and I, for this particular event, had arrived, the store event organizer advised us thatContinue reading “This Was Supposed to Be a Different Post..”

Tuesday Game: A Player’s Perspective: New Ally and Manor Search

We last left our stranded band of companions huddled in the desecrated temple of Falinora going over the message from the recently animated statue, but soon the party realized that their former jailor, Halfkris, had escaped his bonds and was missing. At this realization, the group followed an audible scream from outside the temple, andContinue reading “Tuesday Game: A Player’s Perspective: New Ally and Manor Search”

The Hallmarks of the “Perfect” Game Store

Dear Readers, I often talk about my game store like it’s a second home. That’s because, well…it is, sort of. This, my Dear Readers, is why I believe that my store has all of the hallmarks of being the “perfect” game store. I say “perfect” because, like anywhere, it has its flaws, but overall, thisContinue reading “The Hallmarks of the “Perfect” Game Store”
