Headlines

Beyond The Stat Block

We discuss a community effort to put a splash of flavor into 4e D&D’s otherwise very mechanical monster stat blocks. A website called “Beyond The Stat Block” is attempting to change all of that by crowdsourcing flavor text for monster abilities. Is it going to work out? Listen up and check it out.

Crapping On Your Freelance Writing Dreams

Recently Robert Schwalb (Freelancer to WotC, Green Ronin, many others) basically laid out his personal experiences in the freelancing industry entitled “Crapping On Your Dream: Freelancing 101” with a very sobering stance on what it is like from the inside. We discuss in-depth.

The Death of Fourthcore

Something very near and dear to me (Jerry) has come to an end, Micah allows me to lament and further explain the expiration of the Fourthcore D&D movement. Please also see the original post detailing its demise as well as the follow up, which provides a much more in-depth explanation as well as an announcement for the future of the genre, it’s fans and contributors. If you’re not sure what fourthcore was, enlighten yourself!
