I’ve posted here before about playing Dungeons & Dragons with my kids. We played a few nights together last Summer, but most of our family game nights in the months since were spent playing board games or poker. But, as the coronavirus forced us all to stay put far more often than we’d all prefer,… Continue reading D&D in the Age of the Lockdown
Playing Some D&D
Dark Sun Worldwide Game Day Recap
While I might not be the strongest believer in fate, I happily recognize and accept serendipity when it occurs. I had signed up for the lastest Dungeons & Dragons Worldwide Game Day â€” to get players familiar with the new Dark Sun Campaign Setting supplement â€” with my local gaming group. As it turns out,… Continue reading Dark Sun Worldwide Game Day Recap
Steam on the Mac
While I think it’s great that Steam is finally available for mac users, I’ve still yet to benefit from it. I first bought Portal about two years ago and played it via Boot Camp on my iMac. It was just as wonderful as everyone said it was and I had a great time. Some time… Continue reading Steam on the Mac
D&D Encounters — Week 1
Playing the first encounter of the undermountain adventure.
Portal Gets a Mysterious Update

Carrying the radios to various points within the level unlock a new game achievement.… Continue reading Portal Gets a Mysterious Update
Wednesday Night D&D Group
Sometime in the Fall 0f 2008, I joined a group of folks I met through a Meetup at Mike’s place in Spring Hill to play 4th Edition D&D. This is a back-post of some photos I took from a couple of games in February 2009. The original photos (and comments) are on Flickr.
Battle at the Lighthouse
I played D&D at Mike’s place on Sunday evening. We play-tested a new LFR adventure before its release later this year. The areas above represent the bottom and top floor of a lighthouse the party was storming to take back from an evil skull lord. What’s a Sunday afternoon without pretending to defeat pretend evil?
2008 Worldwide D&D Game Day
Saturday, June 7th at The Game Keep in Hermitage, TN. About 30 players, both new and experienced, came out to learn the new 4th Ed. rules and play a short game in Wizard of the Coast’s Worldwide Game Day. This is back-post of my photos from that event. I was at Table 1, if that’s… Continue reading 2008 Worldwide D&D Game Day
This minotaur was always one of my favorite minis when I was a kid. It was painted by my friend, Tim M. — who was the best miniature painter of anyone I knew then. Everyone always wanted to trade minis with Tim; so he seemed to always have a fresh supply of new ones. I know… Continue reading Miniature Minotaur
