Memory of Starlight: Memories of Summer Nights

(So I thought I'd try to regularly post fiction to a new blog and see how people respond.  I will try to update it with new entries every Sunday.  First we have a kind of introductory story. -D)

Glue and Paint: Tau Empire II

I mean to update this whenever I work my Tau, but I've been kind of tired after spending the evenings working on them.  Some updates then?

Glue and Paint: Tau Empire I

I thought I'd chronicle some work I'm doing on an army I've been collecting for the past decade or so.  Which happens to be Tau Empire.

Paint Guide: My Stormcast Eternals

I'll bet some people out there in the wilds of the Internet are wondering about how I painted my Stormcast Eternals.  Well, here you go.  I must warn you that my specific paints for these guys has changed over time, so there are weird variations in the colors of the models if you look closely.

Miniature Monday: Stormcast Eternals and More

I haven't written in this blog in some time.  Haven't felt like I have had anything worth saying.  Let's share some pretty pictures of miniatures though.  This time we're putting up some Stormcast Eternal Liberators from Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar line, a few Orphans from Zenit Miniatures, and a few Heavy Gear models.  If you have any questions about how I did something, please ask away in the comments.

Outrage of Sigmar

So Games Workshop hosed down its Warhammer Fantasy deck and replaced it with Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.  And what a spectacular explosion we've seen over that.  Let's talk about it.

Traveller: The Fringe Sector

So I am running a Traveller campaign for my friends, and since I haven't really done anything with this blog in awhile due to being busy, I thought I'd do some write-ups on the material I've done for the campaign

A Beginner's Guide to Painting Miniatures

So... there's a lot of how-to guides on how to paint miniatures.  What harm could one more do?  Doesn't everybody who paints miniatures eventually write one of these?

Game Design: Starship Game

I've been working on my own starship miniatures game.  Well, not really 'miniatures' since all the miniatures I have are for things like Babylon 5, Battlefleet Gothic, and Starfleet Universe stuff.  So really the system exists as an excuse for my friends and I to get our starship miniatures out and push them around the table in imaginary battles.

Miniature Monday: Starships

I dug out my starship models because I've been designing a starship combat game.  Some of these I haven't published photographs of before...

Review: Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

Now that I've had plenty of time to play the game and digest the book contents, I'm going to start the review of it.  Since D&D has had its core rules split into multiple books since its inception and the books these days aren't particularly small, this is a three part article.

First things first.  Wizards of the Coast has provided players with a free 'basic' set of rules here.  It includes the four iconic character classes (cleric, fighter, rogue, wizard) and all the basic stuff you need as a player to play.  It also has a second document that includes all the basic information and tools that a Dungeon Master needs to run the game, including magic items and monsters.  So, if you read this article and think to yourself that you'd like to try D&D 5th Edition, you don't have to plunk down your cold hard-earned cash right away.

There's all sorts of commentary I could go into about why Wizards did released free starter rules but that's not really the purpose of this article.  I could also go into a long discussion about edition numbering and how many editions of D&D there really have been (lots, as it turns out), but this isn't really the place for it.  I know there were quite a few complaints about how Wizards of the Coast released the books over a span of months instead of all at once.  Let's put it into perspective here; releasing all the core books at once is not normal in D&D's history and AD&D 1E players had to wait three years to get their Monster Manual, Player's Handbook, and Dungeon Master's Guide (in that order no less).

Today I'll cover the Player's Handbook. See you after the break.
