WHAT – Creating a Character You Can Love

Creating a character is easy in Warrior Heroes Adventures in Talomir, WHAT. It is the first thing a player does in any role playing or immersive game.

Painting Female Goblins

Are there holes in your miniature collection? I've had one in mine for years - orcs and goblins. When it comes to tabletop villains, I've got dark elves, skaven (wererats), chaos (mutant humans), beastmen, gnolls, and all kinds of undead, but very very few orcs and goblins. I'm working on a new campaign, a new… Continue reading Painting Female Goblins

Mid-Summer Madness – Session 9

Working on the same project 9 days in a row is tough. It reminds me of when I worked for a living. I'm certainly going to thank the labor movements of the early 20th century for pension plans and retirement. Also, if you enjoy having a weekend, that's another benefit from the "liberal" labor movements.… Continue reading Mid-Summer Madness – Session 9
