The Gassy Gnoll: Thankful for Gleeful Villains (RPG Blog Carnival: Tricks & Traps)

Finally had an opportunity to see Hanna this past weekend, which has a very interesting modern fairy tale (Grimm-style) approach to a revenge fantasy.

Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly, Spring 2011 Issue 17

When I received the latest Kobold Quarterly, I have to say I had to take a good hard look at the cover. There’s a lot going on in this painting by Allison Theus. The first question that came to mind was “What the heck *IS* that thing?” It’s impossible not to notice that the warrior . . . → Read More: Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly, Spring 2011 Issue 17
