Headlines

Kill an NPC! (George R.R. Martin’s Dance of Dragons)

In honor of the latest book (and the Game of Thrones HBO series), we encourage you to get out there and kill some characters. Not necessarily PCs, but take a central NPC and off them. Watch your players’ eyes bug out when the kindly old mentor NPC gets killed by an assassin. Have the PC’s set out to kill a major NPC even, all that matter is that you kill someone! Shake things up!

Google Plus and Gaming

There’s been a lot of talk about Google+ recently, Micah and Myself even managed to make it onto a top 20 list of gamers to follow. We’re definitely flattered about being cast amidst so many people much cooler than us, that’s for certain. However all this talk lately brings about many questions for gamers, “How can we game here?” and lots of other questions about whether G+ will become a useful/relevant gaming resource or not. Listen to our brief discussion and chime in, in the comments section and tell us what YOU think!

Book of Vile Darkness

WotC has announced a 4e rendition of The Book of Vile Darkness. It fits a lot of their thematically dark releases as of late, do you remember the 3e version? We talk about the book and an evil baby slaying NPC!

Twitter Question

@gamercow asks “How would you deal with joining an existing high level group as an outsider?”
