OP Newsbite: There’s a good chance that Dave Chalker (critical-hits.com) will be joining our Wiki panel at GenCon this year as long as his schedule allows, so be sure to pester him about it and tell him his schedule is open!

UPDATE: Dave has confirmed that he will be attending our panel! He will be speaking alongside us and taking questions from the audience as well. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

Headlines

Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale

The new (and first) 4th edition Dungeons and Dragons video game “Daggerdale” has been getting a lot of Lukewarm reviews, I give my thoughts and we openly discuss the tabletop-to-videogame conversion idea as a whole.

The RPG Bloggers Alliance

Popular RPG blog Stargazer’s World has recently announced the formation of a new community entitled the RPG Bloggers Alliance (RPGBA). Keep in mind this is not to be confused with the RPGBN, which for lack of better words has seemed to diminish in activity/engagement in the past few years. Micah and I discuss what this may or may not mean for the RPG blogger community with our hopes held high.

Dungeon Moms & Dads

It seems like playing RPGs with kids is always a hot topic. Whether it’s a heated debate or light hearted chatter, we discuss the ladder of the two with a recent article on Boing Boing entitled “Tips for Dungeonmaster Mommies & Daddies” as our jumping off point. We go on to discuss personal strategies, experiences and give some tips. We also touch on video games influencing the imaginations of young ones as well as a pretty spot on ice cream analogy from Micah. Yes you read that correctly – ice cream, it makes perfect sense.

Twitter Question

@Starmitehokie asks: “What are some creative ways you’ve had your adventurer’s meet each other?”
