Well hello there everyone, it’s been a minute since I’ve actually sat down to write a review of a game.

It has been one week since my annual return from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, widely regarded as the place Role Playing Games were conceived. I have made the trek for the past seven years to participate in GaryCon, a small- to mid-sized congregation of game players celebrating the life of Gary Gygax, one of the creators Read MoreNo Comments on GaryCon VIII: An Adventure
At the end of last session, the half-orc warrior Giraud had broken the large, gem-like structure that had ensnared the soul-spirits of most of his fellow explorers. Using magical items borrowed from the others, he was able to protect himself and destroy the gemoid, with the hopes that all involved would be saved.
