Fabletop Classes: Ba Ba Ba Barbari-Ann

Incidentally, expect them to ignore shields in favour of two-handed, dual, or dual two-handed weapons.

It’s that time of the month, when I return to fables of the tabletop! And just who could be the cast member we’ll be focusing on this week? I’ll give you a hint:

A staple of Dungeons & Dragons.

That’s right, folks, you guessed it! It’s…! …NO, it’s not the BARD! Are you CRAZY?! What in that picture would make you think BARD?

Such a mistaken answer makes me ANGRY. One might say I am even filled with RAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!

Ret’s Review: Bloodborne

On the whole, think of it as Monster Hunter’s bloodthirsty cousin and contrast the two.

The Blood Moon rises. The Hunt begins. The Nightmare never ends. And you, Hunter, are stuck in the middle of it all. With blade, with gun, with blood, slay the Beasts. Slay this Nightmare.

…Alright, now that I’ve gotten the obligatory “talk like a member of the fandom” intro out of the way, I’m here to talk about Bloodborne, which was free during PS Plus’s March rotation.

So here I am reviewing a game which has been out long enough for a fandom to pop up and mine every bit of lore out of it.

And which is no longer free as of the time of this post.

While being a complete and total newbie to From Software RPGs.

I’m sure this will go GREAT!

Building Stories: What Tales Are Made Of

You have the structure to give it a SHAPE, the content to give that shape a MEANING, and the descriptions to give the content LIFE.

Stories. They are made from nothing, painstakingly crafted. Some people say they survive long after the author, gaining a life of their own.

Some writers even say that a story is an organic, living thing, taking unexpected twists even as they write it. That it is, in fact, ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!

And much like certain unholy, artificial abominations that should not be, I’m going to show you the components and how to craft them.

Beginning Writing: Newbie’s Bizarre Adventure

Where their original Digimon goes on an adventure with the Power Rangers and is revealed to be the third child of Darth Vader.

Every writer starts from somewhere. Nobody’s born a Tolkien, a Lewis, a Martin, or a Rowling. It’s a path that is born from a passion, a great interest, and a creative vision that we wish to breathe life into. All very fine, fanciful things to say.

The ACTUAL journey, on the other hand, tends to have a lot LESS dignity.

Final Week Fables: Girlem

That’s a STONE-cold look she’s giving. BAZINGA!

On today’s episode of The Write Stuff, I’m doing the unthinkable and…WRITING A STORY! Because yes, I don’t just write about writing, I also WRITE! …Sometimes!

A short story. Based on a random image. What could it possibly be with a title like this?!

Prophecy: For Fun And Prophet

e.g. It was destined that the portal would open and the Tentacle Hentai God would emerge.

And so, it was foretold that you, the reader, would be amused by the title of this post, and so click it to expand your knowledge and join my following!

…What do you mean that’s wishful thinking and not a prophecy?

Fabletop: The GM Metagame

Are they spellslingers? Hack-and-slashers? Do they have a giant robot at their command?

The adventurers go in to meet with the enemy. Based on intel, it’s apparently a lich at the head of a small army of hobgoblins. He’s a sorcerer, but he apparently has a high level cleric under him as well. And as initiative is rolled, the question is:

What do you, the GM, make the lich do?
