Fantasy Meets Reality In Time of Legends: Joan of Arc

by Peter Paltridgeon July 26, 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.

by Peter Paltridgeon June 30, 2017
Total Recall is being made into a tabletop game. We mean the blockbuster mind-screw from 1990 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, not the tepid remake that came out…sometime (it was so forgettable we don’t even remember the year).
