2024 Book Releases I’m Most Starry-Eyed Over

Oh hello there! It has been a while. I’ve not had the spoons to write much at all these past few months and so to preserve what little energy I have, I let myself leave the blog ticking along.

As such, here are all of the…

Spoons and What I Do With Them

Spoons and What I Do With Them

I Shouldn’t Be Running Sword Coast Adventures, However…

I’ve been suffering with some indigestion/heartburn nonsense the past few nights and one night while being kept up by it, I found myself thinking how cool it would be to run the 5e official adventure modules in order to experience the Forgotten Realms stories in the most fun way possible. I laughed myself off and the next evening the thought returned. Gulp. See, I already run one homebrew campaign on Tuesdays and play in another on Mondays, and they’re both…
