Between the Shoulder Blades: Sneak Attack!

Between the Shoulder Blades: Sneak Attack!

Playing by the Rules: Lawful Alignments

Combat: More Than Just Rolling Dice

Combat: More Than Just Rolling Dice  Combat is rolling dice.  That’s the mechanic used by Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder.  But just like your character is more than a group of random number, combat is more than just rolling dice.

The website is almost done!

The website is almost complete!  After experimenting with hundreds of different layouts and images we are almost there!  It’s been a bit crazy and plagued with schizophrenia perfectionism.  Don’t ask me to define that, I just don’t know what I’m saying after an entire day spent staring at code.  I do know that I’m VERY pleased with […]
