Things in the Dark: Light Sources (March 2017 RPG Blog Carnival)

It’s impossible to consider the darkness unless you have a source of light. As a species, we’re simply not equipped to see the types of energy wavelengths that other creatures can. It puts most humanoids at a disadvantage when exploring the dark places. So for this month’s blog carnival (exploring Things in the Dark), I…

Things in the Dark Kickoff – March 2017 RPG Blog Carnival

The darkness. For as long as we’ve been conscious as a species, we’ve tried to chase it away. From the flickering light of a torch and bonfire to today’s daylight-mimicking electric LED bulbs, the goal is always the same… achieve the relative safety of daytime so we can see what’s coming out of the dark.…

Prophecies from the Pit of Serpents (Prophecies & Omens RPG Blog Carnival)

Phil over at Tales of a GM has been running this month’s RPG Blog Carnival all about Prophecies & Opens and they’ve had some fantastic entries so far. But it gives me an opportunity to provide another glimpse into the strange abilities some members of the Cult of the Serpent Queen have at their disposal…

Where to find the Vile Witch (RPG Blog Carnival – Garbage and Sewers)

They like nothing more than to dirty up the clean and tidy…

Fae for the Future

The folks at Pitfalls and Pixies have kicked off a new blog carnival topic for June 2016. This time, it’s all about the fae. And I have to say it’s a great topic. 🙂 The fae have always been a fascinating subject, from the different courts competing for attention to the multiple types available to…

At World’s End – May RPG Blog Carnival

The folks over at Rising Phoenix Games have kicked off a fun topic for the May RPG Blog Carnival… “At World’s End.” They mean it more in the cataclysmic sense, dealing with the apocalypse, world shattering events, or even monsters or gods that rock a world to its foundations. Of course, I see those three…

Accessibility as an ideal is more than readability

Continuing on the cool RPG blog carnival topic from Jacob Wood at Accessible Games, I want to talk a bit about an ideal of accessibility I don’t think we focus on enough in our roleplaying. And that’s encouraging the appearance of differently-abled characters in roleplaying worlds. Accessibility is more than just making sure a product…

How do you inspire your players? RPG Blog Carnival – January 2016

This month’s RPG Blog Carnival topic is hosted by Johnn Four of Roleplaying Tips himself. He wants to know what we (as GMs I suspect) do to inspire our players to get excited to play each session. This is a tough one since I don’t GM a ton these days. Let’s take a look anyway……
