5 Pieces of Cover Art You Don’t Want to Miss – RPGaDay 2022

The original question was: Tag 1d8+1 friends with your favourite RPG cover art. But, I’m not a fan of tagging people into things they haven’t chosen to be part of, so I’ve rolled, adjusted that roll to a FIVE and will post that many pieces of cover art instead with a note as to why.…

6 Roleplaying Games You Should Try – RPGaDay 2022

Symbaroum at Conception 2016

I ran two games of Symbaroum at Conception (at Hoburne Park holiday resort, a short distance from Christchurch, Dorset) this weekend based on adventures of my own devising.

Webs within Wheels

Preparation makes a lot of difference when you’re setting out to run any game. Greater minds than I have spent a lot of time writing on the subject. Gamers can find much advice on the matter scattered amongst guides, short essays and those parts of a game’s core book dealing with GM skills. I mentioned…
