The Origin System, A Closer Look

December 29, 2012 by

What’s that?  You thought that we were done talking about the Origin system?  You believed even for a short moment that I would miss an opportunity to flesh out the Origin system to an unnecessary degree?  While this new class system may never see the light of day, I nevertheless want to share it with all of […]

Outclassed: Escaping the Class System

December 29, 2012 by

I’ve been thinking a lot about Next recently, and about some of the decisions they’ve been making regarding classes.  I won’t go into my thoughts on those in this post, but the whole thing has gotten me wondering; do we really want the next generation of Dungeons and Dragons to have classes at all?

Sorry, but the Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition has to come later. I haven’t had much time to explore the new content in the game, and, to be honest, I forgot how tedious a lot of the quests in the first Baldur’s Gate were. I am honored this week to introduce the art-work of Sean P […]

Dungeon Unmastered: Rough Beginnings

Unlike the two main contributors to Dungeon Remastered, I have next to no experience in DMing. In fact, it would be fair to say that I have little experience as a player. I’ve only played in a handful of games (one of which being the year-long Miranda campaign). So I’m not much of an expert […]

Baldurs Gate Part I: Nostalgia

Wow, we have some interesting comments on the last few posts. It’s great to see new commentators, though not every comment has necessarily been about the post exactly. Or anything related to our blog. We’ll figure out where these bizarre comments are coming from, but a thank you for all of you new people posting […]
