Barroom Blitz

Designing Your Tavern for a Tussle

It’s a classic. The bar brawl. And with a little prep-work when world-building, you can make your ale houses, pool halls, and common rooms uncommonly perfect for a proper fracas or a beer-fueled brouhaha.

Campaign of the Year Results

It’s finally time. The wait is over, and the results are in. Our first (and if we’re lucky, our only!) double header Campaign of the Year voting has wrapped up, and I can now announce our two winning campaigns. It’s great to be able to bring the featured campaign program up to date, and give those 2017 CotMs their shot at CotY. So without further delay, let’s get into the results.

20 Things

There’s a little collection of random tables called “20 Things in an Orc’s Pocket” which contains all sorts of fun and simple randomizers to add details to your castle corridors and gloomy goblin lairs.

Weekly Update – March 7, 2019

So it’s been a pretty quiet week compared to recent ones – and that’s a good thing. The hectic has settled back down into the more typical. The lack of issues to solve means that work behind the curtain has resumed on features, updates and other cool things – and thank God for that. We really are looking forward to getting the items that have been in waiting on the development roadmap going again.

All of that being said, let me throw out the details on what has gone on over the course of this week.

Award Winning!
