Review: ShadowMyths Decks

This is a rare review for me. I used to do them all the time on another site, but have fallen away from doing them very often. Anyway, today I bring to you the ShadowMyths decks from artist, writer, and gamer, Doug Hoppes. Each deck runs $20.00 retail, and at the time of this writing, it appears...

Threefold Review

Given how small and confined the world feels these days, I thought it might be appropriate to take a look at an RPG supplement about endless worlds and infinite alternate Earths.

Bite Marks Review

Even when the popularity of the game line was gaining momentum in the early nineties, I didn’t jump on the World of Darkness trend. When I looked at the lines produced by White Wolf, the game that appealed to me the most was Werewolf The Apocalypse. I didn’t really want to play a vampire preying...

Game Bag Review – Synik 30L by Tom Bihn

For those who know me, aside from TTRPG’s my other big obsession is bags. I have a modest collection of various backpacks, sling bags, messengers, and satchels from a number of designers.
