I Was A Goblin: Roll 3d6
Read post

Role-playing is a resource-intensive hobby. Aside from the ridiculous number of available rulebooks, supplements, pre-written adventures and so on, you need two things: time and people. I had plenty of time – people were more of a problem. It w[…]

Poker bids to become Olympic sport
