Table story: A frog’s treasure

Awhile back I was in a one-shot 5e game on roll20 in which we could create level 20 characters with two legendary items to raid a big bad boss in a Colosseum-style arena.

Deleting the faulty entry from progress update didn't help so... Anyhow...there's one thing I forgot to… Continue reading Oops, I accidentally NaNoWriMo…

NaNoWriMo, the end is nigh

For your information, I did not plan this whole hospital arc at all.

This catastrophe is nothing short of a tragedy for France, Europe,… Continue reading Stand tall, our venerable Lady Paris

How Mario Party ruined our friendships

I just came back from a game night at a local bar. It was a cozy little event the bartender cooked up for St. Patrick's day and he had a friend bring over a Switch and set up Super Mario Party on a large TV facing three couches. Drinks were on the house. Everybody chipped… Continue reading How Mario Party ruined our friendships
