I'm not new to MMO's at all. I'm not even "new" to Eve Online. I actually tried it 2 times before this and decided it was the worst game ever. I'm not one to really need hand holding but for a game as complex as Eve Online, I needed a little more than they were giving and decided to go back to whatever game(s) I...

This is something I've been meaning to do for awhile now, journal the Vampire:Darkages game that I'm running as Storyteller (Dungeon Master).  Even though we're about 6 months in, I've decided it's never too late.  Especially since the old Vampire the Masquerade really has been revived through the V20 books! The Chronicle This chronicle is a Tremere campaign starting in the Dark Ages when House...

I heard about geocaching a few years ago, but paid it absolutely no mind.  It sounded overly complicated and I didn't have a GPS.  That was the last time I thought about it, until the other day when my other half brought it up that we should try it. "But we need a GPS," I said.  "And besides that, how do we know where to...

I saw an interesting question on a tabletop rpg forum I look at occasionally.  What do you do, as the DM, when the game slows down and your players are milling about without anything to do? How do you avoid saying, "What do you want to do now?" Personally, I never have to say this to my players since I always give them more than enough...

September 2011 I stumbled upon a video on YouTube that was labeled as the band Pain.  In actuality, the song Sex on Legs wasn't from Pain but from a German band called Lord of the Lost.  Since the video looked like something straight out of Vampire the Masquerade (and the music wasn't bad either), I was hooked. I never really looked into who the band...

Where ever there's a mass shooting or grievous violence, the end fault always seems to land on the shoulders of "violent" video games. Not graphic violence on TV. Not graphic violence depicted on the news, or in the newspaper and other news media. Not graphic violence depicted in songs...we can still beat them bitches and hoes to our hearts content. And not in role-playing games, history books,...

The other day a friend sent me a text message, "If I get the 4 pack of DungeonLand, will you and your other half play?" Well...YES. This is what Steam says about DungeonLand: Dungeonland is a co-operative hack and slash game that takes players on a deadly tour through a medieval theme park. Playing as The Rogue, The Warrior or The Mage, the heroes will...

Today I want to talk to you about Evernote and the Evernote App.  Why? Because one of the things that a lot of Game Masters (DMs) seem to find daunting is tracking the information in their games.  Even as a DM who has been running games and con one shots for about 10 years now, I absolutely hate the paperwork and NPC tracking that comes...

Last night a big group of my friends and I headed over to Utrecht to a Cruxshadows concert! This is the 3rd show from this year (we saw them back in the summer in Belgium and in Cologne on Christmas Day for the Christmas Ball).  I think that audio wise, this has been concert for my little hand held camera.  The show from Belgium, we...

I don't pretend to know anything more about Diablo 3 than the next player, however, I played a druid in Everquest.  Because most Everquest druids who played solo were masters of kiting, I decided that I could do the same with my demon hunter.  So here is my Demon Hunter Kiting Build which I've done fairly well with even with Monster Power 1. This build...
