Gaming stuff: DnD and Warhammer

Gizmodo has an article on how Wizards of the Coast is working with a company called AltspaceVR to create an official virtual environment for playing D&D. The setup will use Oculus VR hardware for playing. It looks interesting, although would require a good hardware investment for anyoen wanting to use the system. (Personally, I prefer…

More writing underway!

The Winter Writing Festival has been a big boost to productivity. I’m not writing as much on the fiction as I would like because of all of the role-play related writing I’ve been doing.

Tales of a first-time game master

I game mastered my first Warhammer session the other night. Oh man do we have a great group of people. We played for a few hours through an off-the-cuff nonsensical adventure in Ubersreik. It was a ton of fun and helped us get a feel for the game mechanics. I have lots of respect for…
