GYGO TTRPGs: AI Art and Chicken Sandwiches

GYGO TTRPGs: AI Art and Chicken Sandwiches

I’ve always been terrible at introductions: How do I start a campaign, how do I get players hooked, how do I entice my friends into spending two hours learning the rules of my favorite board games, how do I start a GYGO post? The answer continues to elude me and, I suspect, it always will. I’m more of an in media res kind of gal.

Pathfinder Second Edition: How Did We Get Here?

Pathfinder Second Edition: How Did We Get Here?

I’ve been playing tabletop RPGs for a long, long time. I started in the 1990s with DC Heroes by Mayfair Games (because of course I did) and pretty quickly moved into Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. But I didn’t get big into games until Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition came out in 2000. That’s when I really began to pore through rulebooks, both core and supplemental, and when I began to explore campaign settings.
