The Gassy Gnoll: Fireball, Fireball, Fireball!

Why do I feel like the Most Interesting Man in the World this week? (Thank you Dos Equis.) Might it be that I started playing a new wizard in 4e D&D last weekend and the first spell I selected was Fireball?

What is it about Fireball that makes it the “must have” spell in D&D? . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Fireball, Fireball, Fireball!

The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I had an opportunity to continue a D&D 4e adventure we started a year ago. With this particular group, we have now met three times in 12 months and only worked through about 2/3 of the dungeon so far. But that’s not the fun part…

The fun part is that the . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

Happy Holidays!

Though the Game Knight and the Gassy Gnoll are taking a bit of time off over the holidays to spend with family and friends, Game Knight Reviews isn’t going anywhere. We shall return in the new year with more reviews, more opinions, and who knows what else.

Thank you for making 2013 such a . . . → Read More: Happy Holidays!

Interview: Chris Littler of Chamber Band

From the title alone, you probably realized this isn’t a normal kind of article for Game Knight Reviews. This is the first music interview on the site and for one very good reason. Chamber Band’s debut album, Deities, is chock full of D&D. Yes, you read that right. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Gassy Gnoll: Celebrating Independence (or Why Aren’t There Fireworks in Fantasy RPGs?)

The Gassy Gnoll is about to go to the mountains for a few days, but he’s spent some time wondering about independence lately. Here in the US many folks are planning to launch fireworks (unless there’s a fire ban, which we’re under in my state). Basically this involves launching some sort of explosive into the . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Celebrating Independence (or Why Aren’t There Fireworks in Fantasy RPGs?)

Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links – 10-MAR-2013

Wow it’s been a rough few weeks. Sick for a week. Traveling for work for a week. And came home with a cold for a week. I’d say it was time for the madness to end, but soccer season is starting for my wife and daughters so there’s no chance of that for a while. . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links – 10-MAR-2013

The Gassy Gnoll: Why aren’t our characters pumping iron, doing katas, or practicing skills?

The Gassy Gnoll has been a slovenly soul for a few years now, growing plumper and slower so that eventually he would be the one devoured at the back of the pack because he really didn’t give a damn. But something changed a few months ago and now he wants to get back into some . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Why aren’t our characters pumping iron, doing katas, or practicing skills?

Ten Links in the Chain: Reviews (3-FEB-2013)

Sure, I do reviews here at Game Knight Reviews. But I know that there are other great sites out there that also do reviews. And sometimes, in the sea of gaming sites, it’s tough to find those reviews. Yes, Google is your friend, but sometimes you don’t know what you’re looking for until you find . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Reviews (3-FEB-2013)

Supplement Review: Deities & Demigods (1e)

Once upon a time I was 12 years old and started playing Dungeons & Dragons First Edition with my friends from junior high school. Many weekends between 1982 and 1985, Bob, Jayson, Dwight, Sean, and I could be found wiling away a Saturday afternoon by conquering fantastic lands and defeating horrific creatures – all in . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Deities & Demigods (1e)
