REVIEW: Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

This review is spoiler-free. Despite having a cinephile as a close friend, I don't see a lot of movies in an actual theater. Even discounting the last few years of shutdown, going to a theater was still fairly rare. It only happened when there was a film interesting enough to get one person riling everyone … Continue reading REVIEW: Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

REVIEW: Origins of the Wheel of Time

Robert Jordan's megalithic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time, holds a special and complicated place within my heart, like it does for many modern writers of fantasy. It's a series which I love, but never dare recommend due to its length and inconsistent pacing. Michael Livingston's recent release, Origins of the Wheel of Time, is … Continue reading REVIEW: Origins of the Wheel of Time

2022 Year in Review

It's January, so typically I go on a great big rambly blog about what's happened—or not happened—in the previous year. While normally I avoid getting too personal in this space—talking about the work, rather than my life—I feel it's worth being pretty straightforward. 2022 was shit.

Reminiscent of the "Red Book of Westmarch" described in Tolkien's prologue to The Fellowship of the Ring, that volume's illustration, graphic design, and rules design together presented a game which said to me, … Continue reading REVIEW: Ruins of the Lost Realm

The Best Game Aid for RuneQuest

Since its release in 2018, Chaosium's new edition of RuneQuest has accrued a small, but notable, number of licensed game aids.

Q Workshop—known for its decorative dice for many different roleplaying games—produces a line of dice for RuneQuest … Continue reading The Best Game Aid for RuneQuest

REVIEW: Six Paths

Well-written and beautifully presented. Six Paths discusses gender, sex, and sexuality with nuance and care. What drew me most in this supplement is the integration of gender with the Orlanthi religion. Six Paths goes above-and-beyond other LGBT-advocacy publications by entwining its material with established lore of the setting. This is well-developed through a collection of … Continue reading REVIEW: Six Paths
