Those OTHER Dwarven Utility Powers

August 26, 2011 Dread Gazebo 0

Well I’d hoped to bring these cool Dwarven Utility powers to you through other means than my blog, alas there are times in life when a cast iron stomach comes in handy and so this seems to be the only way any of you will ever see them. I do hope you like/use them and I also hope they stand up in cool factor against Rob Schwalb’s newly published ones via DDI! You’ll find 4e stat block images of each power after the rich text at the bottom of this post, enjoy!

The Science of Selling Yourself Short

August 23, 2011 Dread Gazebo 0

I find that I’m constantly comparing myself to other DMs. This is an aspect of my personality that I’ve never quite been able to avoid, my whole life I’ve walked around comparing my life to that of my friends, and now I’m even comparing myself to other gamers I read about online? I read about, see videos of or have actually had the experience of playing with them and I somehow always walk away feeling like a chump that can’t run his game worth a shit.

Review: Conquest of Nerath

August 18, 2011 Dread Gazebo 4

Conquest of Nerath is the latest board game from Wizards of the Coast – but it’s not your typical D&D dungeon crawling fare as it compares to games like RISK or Axis & Allies. I wasn’t interested in the game at all when I’d first heard about it, yet after mounting curiosity and an ever-widening strategic wargame hole in my soul, that changed. I’m very pleased with the outcome because it’s fun game with simple rules yet provides a good strategy experience and in a short amount of time too.
