Defiance

I may have mentioned elsewhere, or may at some point
mention, or possibly gripe incessantly about how I hate MMOs. It’s something
that I’m kind of infamous for amongst my gaming circles. It was with great
hesitation, then, that I approached Defiance, a recent post-apocalyptic MMORPG
from Trion Worlds.
I’m a huge fan of the Fallout series from way back when, but
I’ve played Fallout 3 and New Vegas to the point of which I just don’t want to
go back anymore. I’ve spent that much time in the DC and Mojave wastelands that
I just can’t go back in anymore, and the old games sadly haven’t aged well (and

Kickstarter of the Week: The Ragged Man Adventure

I’m back again with my Kickstarter addiction!  Actually, I’m
realizing “addiction” is the wrong word.  I’m more of a “Kickstarter connoisseur”. “Addict” implies I’ll back just *any* project. Not true. I throw my endorsement behind projects I’d truly love to see thrive.  This one is no different.

Those in Southern Arizona are no strangers to the Adventures Under The Laughing Moon,
a table top RPG set in a universe created by local teacher and author,
Todd Vanhooser.  It’s finally time for a new adventure!  Part
fantasy/part horror, The Ragged Man
is an independent campaign set in the Laughing Moon universe.   With
all of the compelling story elements veterans of the game are familiar
with, countless hours of fun are sure to be had with this project.

So grab your dice bag, thr...

When it was first published in 1975, Tunnels & Trolls opened up the role-playing game genre, showing that these games could encompass a multiplicity of ways to make this segment of the game hobby exciting.
