The Curse of Strahd (5e) and Expedition to Castle Ravenloft (3.5) modules feature the use of fortune teller cards to determine certain aspects of the adventure. For Curse of Strahd, the deck of cards is called a Tarokka deck, and in Expedition to Castle Ravenloft you're told to use a Thre...

I'm preparing for a historic wargame between Roman Imperial and Egyptian armies, and while I paint the miniatures I wanted to listen to a relevant audio book. Unfortunately, I wasn't exactly able to find anything beyond some documentaries on Youtube. There are some really good ones on there, and I'v...

Pariah Nexus on the Warhammer TV streaming service has reached its third and final episode. I hadn't expected such a short series, so this episode came as a surprise to me, but it didn't disappoint. And if the series wasn't dark enough for you so far, this episode 100% remedies that.

In this epis...

The app tells you what tiles of the board to set out, what tokens to mark the board with, and helps you through exploration...

In 2009, Pathfinder became the successor of D&D. It literally took the existing rules and re-published them with a bunch of improvements as Pathfinder. It was so successful with RPG players that it's spawned a video game, a board game, and a card game. I've played several rounds of the card...

Today, Pariah Nexus was released on the Warhammer+ streaming service. It seems to be about the Adepta Sororitas (or at least one of them, anyway) and the Necrons, so I've been excited about the series since it was teased months ago. I enjoyed the first episode, and this is my review of it, arbit...

A new series called Pariah Nexus is out on the Warhammer TV streaming service. I enjoyed the first episode, but the second episode is easily one of the best episodes of any series on Warhammer TV. This review is free of major spoilers, but if you want the show to be a total surprise then stop...

The Horus Heresy book series is set in the 30th millennium, just 10 short millennia prior to Warhammer 40,000. It's the story of how the Emperor of Man found his lost sons, the Primarchs, from all across the galaxy, and ultimately how one of them turned against him, causing civil war within the...
