A three-way tie between the choices: three dragons, three NPCs, and three extra-planar threats. This can only mean one thing. You get one of each.
As usual I will generally be drawing upon Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition rules, but most of the content here should easily be modifiable to any other system or edition you choose. (more…)
Would you believe that’s the shorter title?
Shrewsbury has just had a busy weekend, pouring into the growing geeky community we have played host to a Steampunk festival for which I rearranged some booked holiday time to ensure I’d be free to attend, and then I foolishly organised an all-day Dungeons & Dragons marathon for the sake of advertising the new business on the same weekend. So I squeezed a couple of hours out of the festival on the Saturday before D&D on the Sunday, let’s talk about that one first.
Last week, Chris wrote about his time at AireCon 2018. Last week, we only had one image. This week, we have all of the images from Chris’ trip to AireCon 2018. For the board game fans out there, this convention looks like a right blast! Bringing people together over a good board game, as well as great conversation is truly something that we here at GeekOut Media believe in. To see the spirit of AireCon in all of it’s glory, check out the full gallery below, along with an interview Chris managed to find the time to conduct there. For the serious fan or the casual observer of board games and what it means to be an analogue gamer, this convention looks like it’s a must!
In a high-fantasy setting we have a tendency to lean on magic as the driving force of the world and most wonders that one can behold, you have to sink as far as low fantasy before you stop using it as a crutch to create a spectacle. Here assembled we have some curiosities and marvels that do not depend on magic (although some stretching of the imagination may be required).
Most of the series relies upon D&D 5th edition rules, but this one is completely without rules, leaving you free to interpret and apply rulings as you desire.
You’re starting a new game and trying to come up with a setting, at least to kick off the first few levels, somewhere with intrigue and danger, somewhere they’ll remember for levels to come, the place that they’ll one day be thinking of when they save the world.
Usually these articles make no small use of 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons rules, but as a heavily narrative oriented piece there will be little to no need to adjust any components for your own game, but tinker with anything you like. Welcome to… (more…)
It’s been a month or two since I discussed this last. “What are you up to?” you may ask, and I might shift my feet a little and not quite catch your eye when you say “You haven’t done anything have you?” which has a question mark but is not in fact a question.
Side note: This isn’t the only article from today, if you’re not in or around Shropshire, or just don’t want to listen to me talking about myself, I have another article today about Magic: the Gathering’s recent comedy set, Unstable. Check it out here. (more…)
Since Wizards of the Coast announced the return to comedy form with the Unstable set, I knew that I had to get me some of that action. If you’re a GeekOut Shrewsbury attendee or just like the pictures then you’re well aware I already bought myself a box of boosters.
So here’s a quick rundown of what I got and what I plan to do with it… one day… some time after I sort out all my Amonkhet stuff and find where the hell my mill deck has vanished to. Magic jargon incoming…
