Shark Week: Dead and Gone?

For many years, when people would ask the question "Why do you like Shark Week so much?", my reply would be "Because it's now the one time of the year Discovery gets back to playing actual animal documentaries." That those documentaries were about some of the most fascinating creatures on our planet certainly didn't… » 7/01/14 10:12pm 7/01/14 10:12pm

Tabletop Stories: Final Fantasy Edition

A friend in my Wednesday night gaming group managed to get a hold of a copy of the Final Fantasy tabletop rpg rulebook not long ago, and having spent the past few Wednesdays playing nothing more than Betrayal at the House On the Hill, Poo!, and Last Night on Earth, we decided it was worth giving a shot. » 5/01/14 12:57am 5/01/14 12:57am

Parker is Back!

For anyone who might be interested in getting into the Spider-Man comics, but was unsure what a good jumping in point would be, you and I could probably not do much better than Amazing Spider-Man #1, releasing today, and bringing the original Peter Parker back to the Marvel Universe. I'm hoping to go hit my local… » 4/30/14 7:20am 4/30/14 7:20am

TAYbletop: Not So Jolly Update

I hate to do this, but I'm still sick as hell, with no improvement in sight. I've had no chance to work on the game, so I'm going to have to cancel. Unless somebody else is willing to pick up the reigns. I'm sorry, guys. I know it seems like there's always something. I'm beginning to feel the universe is against me… » 4/28/14 9:56pm 4/28/14 9:56pm

If You Truly Loved Me...

...one of you would come and smother me with a pillow. I feel like death warmed over. I can't eat without throwing up, I can hardly swallow for all the flem in my throat, and MrsBoots keeps using these "I love you and the kids would miss you" and "I'd go to jail for murder if I did that" excuses not to help end my… » 4/27/14 7:15pm 4/27/14 7:15pm

TAYbletop: Jolly Good Blip

Just letting my players know, that while I said about playing tomorrow, I'm going to have to postpone until next week. I'll be leaving sometime Tuesday to go pick up my stepson from his father's house across state. I'm highly doubting I'll be back in time to play, or even if I managed to that I'd feel up to playing… » 4/21/14 2:20pm 4/21/14 2:20pm

Tabletop Stories : My Luckiest Character Yet

My regular Saturday tabletop group had been in a slump as of late. We had had our fill of elves, dwarves, goblins and orcs, no matter how uniquely they were being interpreted or how rich the lore created for them was. Dragons? Absolutely sick to death of them. Riding them, fighting them, raising baby ones, it didn't… » 4/17/14 5:44pm 4/17/14 5:44pm
