Adventures in Fiction: J.R.R. Tolkien By Chris Doyle John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892 in what is now South Africa.

2017 was a great year for Goodman Games. I’d like to thank all the fans, the contributors, the Road Crew, the amazing artists and inspiring writers, the game stores and institutions that support role playing, the conventions, the employees at Goodman Games that keep the lights on, the founding generation that preceded us, and even the US Postal Service for facilitating so many of our sales.

A Brief History of DCC Zines

A Brief History of DCC Zines By Daniel J. Bishop Something about the do-it-yourself nature of Dungeon Crawl Classics has led to a plethora of zines. Whether they are old or new, have put out many issues or few, these zines provide insights into their creator’s visions for that multi-faceted jewel which is DCC RPG. The great-grandaddy of them all, Crawl! Fanzine, came out in May of 2012, hot on the heels of the game itself. Crawl! has...

Year in Review: A Whole Lot of Cons

It’s easy to say that 2017 was a busy year for Goodman Games. It would also be a bit of an understatement. In 2017, Goodman Games attended more cons and events than ever before. All in all, we were at over 20 events, where we met our fans, sold some stuff, and rolled a lot of dice. You can read about all of them at our Con and Store Recap page (always accessible from the “Home” pulldown menu if you want to keep track...

Real Life Adventures: Scotland and Orkney

Real Life Adventures: Scotland and Orkney by Daniel J. Bishop I was lucky enough to take a five-week trip to Scotland and Orkney in 2017, from mid-August to mid-September. I flew with my partner and youngest child into Edinburgh Airport, where my older daughter and her boyfriend met us. Because they started university this year, they could only come for the first two weeks of the trip. Scotland is an amazingly beautiful country with a...
