Silverbeam Creations Review

For my last birthday, my favorite (only) sister gave me a monthly subscription for roleplaying goodies in a box from Silverbeam Creations. It’s a small company run by one dedicated game-lady named Eileen Bowen who has a passion for 3D printing, miniatures, and all things geeky. Here’s a short interview from the Pinshape blog about her. Silverbeam has sent me piles of gaming accessories over the past several months and we’re going to take a look at a sample.

Review: Stranger Things 5th Ed. D&D Starter Set

Our regular GM was sick last week, so our gaming group had a chance to try out the Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons Stranger Things Starter Set. In short: it’s a great little adventure that’s just right for beginners or DM’s who need a starting point for a low-level campaign. And for more experienced gamers, I’ve written up some ways to modify it for more advanced play.

3D Pen Mini’s

As the world of tabletop roleplaying games evolves into what feels like the future, I discern a desperate, mid-life-crisis-ish urge to stay abreast of the cool new tech that came out several years ago (I’m slow to adapt).  3D printing is one such cutting-edge contrivance… but I’m not willing to risk a large investment (read: I’m cheap) in a desktop 3D printer to make miniatures.  Not yet, anyway.  Instead, I bought a 3D Pen to see if I could wield divine power upon the (small-scale) realm of plastic!

Quick, Colorful Mayhem for 2-4 Players

Are you a fan of goblins, or in this case bodgers? Particularly the kind who tinker and build contraptions that typically result in spectacular displays of high voltage electricity, steam, explosions, and sometimes bodger bits smattered everywhere!?

Stuck? Roll Some Dice – Spark Ideas, Kill Writers Block

Tools of the Trade

I’ve been using a lot of accessories for writing and adventure design lately, among my many tools, a few of my favorites have been the Fourthcore Alphabet and the Deck of Many Things from Madness at Gardmore Abbey. I’ve also been using some miscellaneous bits on things like cryptography, numerology, and puzzles from online sources. Using stuff like this makes for a really interesting mix of dungeon scenarios, plot hooks, fun challenges, and lots of other stuff.

Award Winning!
