Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Monster Manual

The second in the trilogy of core rule books for 5th edition dungeons and dragons releases this month and it’s a 352 page tome of awesomeness for dungeon masters. When it first arrived I surmised I would simply read the important parts and skim through the book. After all the monster manual is not something you typically read cover to cover.

Much like the Players Handbook and the Starter set the graphical layout of the book is outstanding and I was immediately impressed with the full color artwork on nearly every page.  Each monsters page is presented in a way that is welcoming to the DM. In addition to the full color image you have a clearly displayed stat block that is called out to perfection.

Golem Arcana bridges two worlds to create a fascinating experience.

A funny thing happened at Gen Con this past August. I witnessed a new type of game being played by all different types of people. Adults, children, males, females and there was one constant thing being said over and over; “This is so cool”.

I had seen the Golem Arcana prototype at a previous GenCon and followed the kickstarter. While I didn’t hold the same disdain as my friends, I’ll admit I wasn’t so sold on the concept from the outside looking in.

Review: Galaxy Defenders

X-Com is one of my favorite computer games, I love the turn based squad combat and the craziness of things that can happen. While there is an official X-Com game in the works from FFG my demo of that game at Gen Con made me realize it was missing my favorite part of the game, the combat.

Luckily for me, and you if you like squad based combat there is already a spiritual board game version of X-Com and it’s called Galaxy Defenders from Ares Games.

Gen Con Report: Paizo & Obsidian

Published on August 26, 2014 by

I’ve been attending Gen Con for over a decade and it’s interesting to see how things have changed in that time. Some companies get larger booths, some get smaller ones and others just disappear altogether depending upon the popularity of their products.

I think it is safe to say that Paizo is riding the popularity wave and it’s only getting bigger. The Paizo booth had the longest lines consistently throughout the convention.  I couldn’t even imagine how many Skull & Shackles the new Pathfinder Adventure Card game were sold.
