Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: The Deck of Many Dungeons

Deck of Many Dungeons - Geek-o-Rama - Tabletop Gaming

Hi all! Katrina here with this week’s Kickstarter spotlight. This week, I wanted to bring you something that I personally found really cool and I found it with the Deck of Many Dungeons. I was first drawn to the art because it looked suspiciously like it was done by our good friend Travis Hanson.  Upon checking out the FAQ, I discovered that I was right! That got me in the door, but what kept me was the purpose of these really cool cards:

“Well it’s a deck of 54 playing cards, 53 actual usable cards which will have map elements printed on the back of them. A Game Master can use these cards to either shuffle up a random dungeon or to lay out their own custom dungeon for their friends!

LotFP Rules & Magic Review

Lamentations of the Flame Princess
Player Core Book: Rules & Magic

History lesson time, kids!  Back around the year 2000, Wizards of the Coast created the Open Gaming Licence (OGL) and applied it to all of the older Dungeons & Dragons editions they had previously acquired with the purchase of TSR, Inc.

Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode One: The Enigma

Written by: James Windeler, Patrick Kevin Day & Shanon Ingles
Directed by: Kent Mudle

One year after Batman stopped Penguin, Two-Face, Lady Arkham, and the Children of Arkham in the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series, Gotham is now safer than it’s ever been thanks to Batman and Gotham’s new police commissioner, Jim Gordon. But when Gotham’s original masked criminal, The Riddler, returns, Batman is pushed to his limits to save the city once again.

The first season of Telltale’s Batman series left me cold. It had potential but felt hollow. It had interesting original villains, and new takes on old ones, but ultimately felt bloated juggling Penguin, Two-Face, and the new Lady Arkham. As a whole, it was good but marred by problems big and small...
