Remember the old Dungeons & Dragons cartoon? I remember playing in Rolemaster campaigns that were just about as cheesy as that cartoon… So when someone linked to a video that narrated an episode of the cartoon as if it was an actual RPG session, it provided me with a good mix of nostalgia and amusement. And it even has dice rolling sounds!
This is very, very cool.
In my case, that’s Sunday (second D&D group), Tuesday (The One Ring via Google Hangout), Wednesday (my Streamdales campaign), Thursday (Ars Magica) and Sunday again (first D&D group).
Infinite tea-time. Pure bliss.

A really nice map of the best viewing times for watching the fall colors in the US. I love this map: it’s stylish, and the colours match the fall foliage they model.
(Oh, and did I mention that I got a 91.5% score for the map MOOC that I wrote about? Well, I did. So now I have a ‘Certificate of Distinction’ to frame and hang above my desk. 😉 )
Two cool map things I saw this week:
Here is an animation of how a fantasy map was created. I’m guessing it was all done in Photoshop or Illustrator, and not with a particular map-making software. Still, it’s interesting to see how it was built up.
(It’s for the Red Aegis RPG on Kickstarter, by the way.)
And here I thought that the freezer compartment in our fridge was a nightmare. Instead, take a look at a meat storage facility that had been at the same location for 90 years… Epic defrost indeed!
