by Kyle Thomason September 16, 2017

Who Goes There? Brings The Thing To Your House

by Peter Paltridgeon August 8, 2017
Can you believe The Thing is 35 years old and there hasn’t been a tabletop RPG game based on it? It’s even more of a missed opportunity when you think of the fact that it was based on The Thing from Another World, which came out back in the 50’s and was inspired by a […]

by Peter Paltridgeon July 26, 2017
The story of Joan of Arc has captivated storytellers for centuries because it almost sounds too wild to be real. Recent adaptions have taken that element further by “enhancing” the historical events with explicitly supernatural elements. Sony’s Jeanne D’Arc, released in 2007 for the PSP, was a strategy game based on the Hundred Years’ War […]

by Peter Paltridgeon July 18, 2017
Wizards of the Coast, the current guardians of the Dungeons and Dragons brand, has resisted “modernizing” the mechanics of the game for a long time.
