Northern Reaches: Gygax Birthday Edition

The members of Red Box Niagara will gather together tonight for a special Gygax Birthday Edition of The Barrowmaze.

In other news I took the Gygax quiz, I did not use google, and I spelt one incorrect.

Greg Gillespie took the Hardest Gary Gygax Quiz in the World and got 50%!

You are a Gary Gygax Swashbuckler. You are cunning in the ways of Gary Gygax. You've probably been to Gen Con once or twice, and if I searched your house, I bet I'd find a Gary Gygax autograph, a humorous D&D-related T-shirt, and/or a stack of Dragon magazines.

Paladin Code: You completed this quiz without using Google.

Northern Reaches: Session 19

We are banging out sessions left and right lately, which is great to get my Barrowmaze dungeon off the ground.

Session 19 involved random encounters with Coffer Corpses - and a near TPK.

Check it out, feel free to leave comments here.

Citadel Three Stage Adventurers

I'm in the home stretch looking for citadel three stage adventurers.

I've narrowed my list down to five. Can anyone throw me a bone?

I'm missing the mid and high-level human magic-user (top). The mid-level druid (center left), the high-level female cleric (center right), and the high-level elf magic user (bottom)

I'll trade or buy.

The Caverns of Thracia

I've been reading The Caverns of Thracia with much enjoyment.

I'm looking over it for ideas for my own game. It's nice to see some of the things I'm doing already contained therein, as well as giving me some new ideas.

Judges Guild materials weren't on the shelves of the gaming stores of my youth, so I find it interesting to look them over.

I'm curious have you ever played, DMed, or read a good game-report of The Caverns of Thracia?

Thoughts on a Couple Subjects

First, Happy 4th Of July to all our American neighbours!

Second, against my better judgement I saw Transformers 3 last night. I won't reveal spoilers but I will say this: How do I get those two hours back? I seem to say that after each Transformers movie. The first was a big commercial for Ebay, the second was just terrible, and the third is just dreadful. Plot holes, stupid scenes, overt patriotism where it just wasn't needed. Transformers is the only movie series that can take cars, women, and guns and make a clusterfuck out of it.

Third, I just finished reading the "pathfinder is outselling 4E" thread at enworld. All I can say to that is - great! I don't play pathfinder and, due to a desire to get away from 3.X crunch I never will, but I like how they do what they do. It's a pretty straightforward recipe for them. Let WotC make an important decision on something and then do the opposite.

Again, have a great holiday!

Dominion Day!

Happy Dominion Day!

Yes, I prefer the old flag, the old national anthem, and the old name.

If Trudeau was alive, he could bite me.
