Weekend Writer: Back To Basics (and Prompts)

Hey all, Sam here. Okay, let's try this again. I had ideas and plans for getting back into writing and getting back into blogging, and feeling like the old me again. But not even two weeks into the new year and my father-in-law was in the ICU and it wasn't looking good, and then a… Continue reading Weekend Writer: Back To Basics (and Prompts)

Welcome to the Free State of Geek!

Hey all, Sam here. Sorry for the silence the past couple weeks. Had some conversations that led to sort of a depressive funk. Coming out of that was a little bit of a process, but it led to the realization that it was time to formalize some changes that we had been planning on for… Continue reading Welcome to the Free State of Geek!

NetGalley Review: Slaying the Dragon: A Secret History of Dungeons & Dragons by Ben Riggs

Hey all, Sam here. Well, what do you know, I actually have a review for a book BEFORE its release date. I'm really trying to do better; hopefully it sticks.

D&D Review: Roll & Play: The Game Master’s Fantasy Toolkit by Sam Bartlett

Hey all, Dani here. You know, when I planned today's book review, I wasn't originally thinking about the fact that it is a Dungeons & Dragons based review, which is silly, because I bought the book to be used by myself and our group's other Dungeon Masters for session planning. But, I guess this does… Continue reading D&D Review: Roll & Play: The Game Master’s Fantasy Toolkit by Sam Bartlett

Hey all, Dani here. Since I started getting back into the swing of blogging again, I've been talking about wanting to have posts about more than just books and reading, so I figured for today I would just try and do some mini-reviews and discussions of things I've been watching lately. My April Reading Wrap-Up… Continue reading Watch & Review
