Exploring the poetry in the Song of Roland, Tolkien, and a potentially new poetic form.
If Call of Cthulu has players investigating cosmic horrors, Xas Irkalla invites you to wander the dream-haunted worlds of elder gods. This is a game only for those who want unforgiving worlds with death spirals in their mechanics.
Make mass combats easier and cinematic with advice from DungeonWorld!
Perhaps what made me think I had what it took to make a blog on RPG design and stuff was this effort with /u/SpiketailDrake on Reddit. The remastering of the 4 Elements Monk from 5th Edition! (Here is the old Reddit Link from years ago where our discussion took place.) I helped with the power […]

From my other posts, this one may come as no surprise. My originally titled “Yavin High-Five” about […]
