Shiz That Didn’t Work – Ep156

Sometimes things just don’t work out. Sometimes you power through until you get through it, sometimes you endure it for years and sometimes you cast it aside. Dealing with someting that isn’t working is a hard thing to do and sometimes can wreck your game. We talk about some things that didn’t work for us and what we did in those cases.

Minions – Ep153

Minions   Ep153

Minions!!

We’ve noticed that in a lot of current RPGs there have been rules in place that downgrade one group of enemies so that they aren’t much of a threat individually, but in a large group can be quite tough. Those are the minions. Are they the key to “cinematic” combat or just a gimmick?
