“Plague City is a side-plot, intended to occur in the background of a longer campaign. The events will sneak up on the PCs, becoming more relevant as time goes on – until they can no longer avoid its effects. If they are lucky, they can avoid the consequences of a deadly plague. If they’re heroes, they’ll face the undead vampire causing it…”

ARCHIVER Issue 2 has just published. What is Archiver, you ask?  Well, let me tell you!

A New RPG Blogging Network... rpgSPOTLIGHT

When I first got into blogging several years ago, I found the concept of a blogging network to be really cool.  I got to find and read several other blogs dedicated to gaming, while drawing in visitors to my site as well.  It just kind of felt cool to be a part of something, right from the get-go.

Don't Touch My Dice!

Interview with Venger Satanis.  Also, a $500 Contest!

Venger Satanis does not shy away from the controversial… He is the author of Alpha Blue, an RPG that places sexual themes into a spotlight, and his new Adventure Writing Like a Fucking Boss puts an expletive directly into the title of each book. Regardless, his distinctive style provides content for a niche in the RPG industry that most RPG authors leave empty, and Venger [Read the article]
