The Glory of the Doom Gong Grows Each Year

It spells Doom for the many, but Immortal Glory for a select few… It lay dormant for years, its dark energies coalescing in a stifling miasma of dread. But, almost at the point when its brazen peels of doom were forgotten in the hearts of mortals, the ebon arch was seen once more, its flank aglisten in a crimson wash, and the sonorous sounds of defeat and destruction again shivered the air at Gen Con.

The Pits of Lost Agharta: From Gen Con to Your Screen!

But then, as gaming sometimes tends to do, the virtual Pits escaped into the real world! Thanks to the dedication and craftsmanship of a team of ziggurat-mancers in the persons of Chase Reinhart and Stefan...

A Sit Down With the Magician’s Skull (and Editor) at Gen Con!

Mortal Dogs, tremble at his glory! Few believed it was possible — and all quaked at the mere thought! Indeed, the Overlord of Sword-and-Sorcery, the Pontifex Maximus of Maximal Pontification, the Voivode of the Vorpal Blade himself, the one-and-only Magician’s Skull, manifested in the physical realm at Gen Con 2022 in, err, approximate human form. With a peel of thunder and the shivering of a gong, a chuff of acrid smoke...

Returning to the Community of Gen Con DCC

Returning to the Community of Gen Con DCC by Harley Stroh Returning to Gen Con was otherworldly. Was it really only two years? It felt like more like a decade of enchanted slumber. Some of us hadn’t run any in-person games during the Dark Times. Many of our dearest friends and Road Crew were still sheltering in safety. It seemed a world transformed, post-apocalypse.  Would anyone show up to play the games? And if they did, would...

Gaming In The Wizard Van

We did it. We really did it. We drove a van onto the floor of Lucas Oil Stadium and had fans play a game of Dungeon Crawl Classics inside its shag-a-licious interior as a part of Gen Con 2022. Dice were rolled. Adventures were had. Moments were created. It was a revelation. Don’t believe us? Well, pictures are worth a whole lotta words. And you’ll find a great selection of pics below. We’ll see you next year in Indy!...
