Film Vlog Review: Dungeons & Dragons – Honor Among Thieves
I went and saw Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves in a theater, and I’m going to talk about it!
Vlog: Getting Up To Date On the OGL
Things changed a lot since I put my editorial on why the OGL matters – just two days after that video went live in fact. It’s time to go over what had changed, and what my thoughts on the changes are.
The Elusive Shift: Book Review
In writing my review of The Game Wizards, I came to a horrifying realization – I hadn’t given my thoughts on the other previous sequel by Jon Peterson to Playing at the World that I’d read – The Elusive Shift. Considering that all three of these books kind of form a full narrative, I realized
Dragons of Winter Night: Book Review
Dragons of Winter Night, as a novel, runs into the problem of adapting what was we think of it into just a trilogy of books – a bunch of material has to be skipped over. We start off after the retrieval of the Hammer of Karass and the re-unification of Dwarven society (which would later
Quag Keep: Book (Video) Review
This week I’m rounding out my book reviews with what might be the proto-Game-Isekai novel, written in the ’70s by Andre Norton.
Quag Keep: Book Review

GBP: Pool of Radiance – Part 2 (Sokol Keep)
After you’ve cleared the Slums – in terms of quest goals, you have a few new options. On the one hand, you can continue inland to Kuto’s Well. On the other, you can now travel out to Sokol Keep out in the bay around the city. With this comes a bunch of new quest goals
GBP: Pool of Radiance – Part 1 (Arrival and The Slums)
Recently, in addition to the games that I’ve been playing for my usual Let’s Plays, I’ve also been playing the original Pool of Radiance as part of a planned playthrough of the Forgotten Realms Gold Box games. Since I can’t really engage with something without getting analytical, I figured I might as well give my
Book Review: Dragons of Autumn Twilight
When I first read Dragons of Autumn Twilight, back in Middle School, I hadn’t read much fantasy fiction, and I definitely hadn’t watched much anime. This year, I decided to revisit the Dragonlance trilogy, with what I know now about Fantasy fiction, with a more mature perspective as a reader, and having watched (according to MyAnimeList)
