Top 10 – Very Old Aliens & Alien Races

GeekOut Top 10s

We have something to declare: We didn’t really look into the word ancient closely enough, until after we had written this week’s list. Ancient declares that it’s not only from the past, but indeed it’s also not in existence any longer. So, we took some creative liberties this time, by declaring that from today, this list has gone from ancient aliens to very old aliens. Hah! We managed to evade disaster again. Anyway, read on for this week’s list. (more…)

Top 10 – Spooky Internet Content

GeekOut Top 10s

Spooky internet content – You know, the type of website, video, webcomic or otherwise that sits in the back of your mind once you’ve mentally digested it. Spooky and scary aren’t one of the same – However there is a lot of overlap between the two.

So, without further adieu, here is our Top 10 Spooky Internet Content. (more…)


Dungeon Situational – High-Level Encounters

Introduction

Sufficiently challenging your players at higher levels can be a difficult task for any DM/GM. With players of 15th level or higher who can take out creatures like dragons with relative ease, making encounters that are both interesting and a challenge can be tricky but ultimately worthwhile, if done well.

Below I have prepared a number of encounters using 3 different sets of monsters, two of which are from Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes, that have been designed to both be a challenge to a party and be interesting and unique encounters.

GeekOut Top 10s

Happy Spooky Season!

The witches brew, fruit of the cauldron, magic in liquid form, bottled and corked, and ready for mass distribution. They can be medicinal, toxic, empowering, destructive, or just plain weird. Sometimes it’s important to just randomly drink bottles you find on the ground especially if they glow, because it could be any of those adjectives, or all of them, and you’ll only know if you try.

Hold your nose, down the hatch, and hope this one isn’t poison. It’s the Top 10 potions. (more…)


Best RPG Shows on the Web

I love role-playing games, and one thing I’ve found myself doing a lot lately is watch other people play these games. It all began with the Acquisitions Inc. podcast and then the irregular live shows, and now I regularly watch Critical Role, have since the first campaign.

Top 10 – Explorers

GeekOut Top 10s

Exploration requires a certain set of characteristics; bravery, wisdom and overall survivability. You need to be brave to go somewhere uncharted, you need to be wise so you don’t eat something that’ll hurt you and you need to be able to survive, so you can return and tell of your exploits. Well, in today’s Top 10 list, we’re focusing on these brave individuals who’ve seen uncharted territories – and come back to tell us all about it. (more…)

Star Realms Frontiers

Back in August 2017, I backed this product on Kickstarter as an early birthday present, under the impression it would’ve come in time for December that same year. A handful of delays with design and printing eventually led the EU fulfilment to happen this September.

Was it worth the wait?
