Chaostle Wins Origins!

Chaostle Is A Blast! Just got back from our trip to origins and I’d really like to tell you all about a game that I had a ton of fun with while I was there.

Sprucing Up Skills – Specializations in 4e D&D

After playing in a few Cthulhu homebrew games run by one of my players who is a long time DM, and running an open ended game like Dead of Night I’ve been thinking a lot about skills lately.
