The close triumvirate of Leech, Maura, and me remained tight up until the final week of the Spring 1992 semester. There were plenty of signs that things were leading up to a regrettable outcome, but most were only clear in hindsight. As Maura and I grew closer, Leech’s role transitioned from useful buffer to third […]

The summer between my freshman and sophomore years at UMass Boston saw me in a better place than I’d known in, well, most of my nineteen years. I’d switched majors from physics to English, and pulled myself back from academic probation to make it onto the Dean’s List. There was money in my pocket, thanks […]

Following the “Brassfist Saga” (which you can read about Death Saves story, with some additional clarifications here), I found myself in charge of a ready made group of folks interested in running a Warhammer Fantasy Role Play campaign. I was a little apprehensive about taking up the gamemaster’s mantle again after the clusterfuck my Champions […]

Sometime in the autumn of 1989, I stumbled across a glowing magazine review for the Dungeon Lairs. The box set supplement was a Games Workshop effort which followed up on the publisher’s previous sets of mix-and-match tiles aimed at bring ease-of-use and some visual flair to table-top RPG loot crawls.

By the beginning of 1988, my enthusiasm for Dungeon & Dragons had reached a low ebb.

We were still into fantasy genre […]

I’ve been informed that links to digital edition of Death Saves have gone out and the physical copies should soon be making their way to the anthology’s backers. I also got a sneak peek at the Total Kill Party Guide extra, and it’s a pretty sweet package of helpful information and general hilarity. As I […]
