September 12, 2015 Mook 0

Part 1 of this post looked at nailing down the adventure idea, expanding it a bit, coming up with some pre-gen characters, and starting to flesh out the details, which is the step continuing here. Remember, if you’re just looking for the […]

Creating The Warriors – Part 1

September 10, 2015 Mook 2

Thursday is GURPS Day! And we will definitely be getting our GURPS on, but I’ve had to change up the schedule a bit. I attended the ever-wondrous Gateway 2015 convention this past weekend, and had planned to post a recap of […]

My GM Kit

February 26, 2015 Mook 17

A question I come across a lot is, “What do you use when running games? What’s in your GM bag?” Many of us love to peek at the doodads and fiddly bits other GMs bring to the table, so rather […]

Gateway 2014

September 6, 2014 Mook 3

Last weekend it was once more unto the breach for a Strategicon convention, and once more I had an uber-fun time! The con was Gateway 2014, and I was really looking forward to a little get-away with friends, games, and more games. […]

More Tokens in Combat

June 1, 2014 Mook 4

I recently ran a couple of GURPS games at Gamex 2014, and stumbled upon a great method for pairing colored tokens and dice to speed up large combats. The encounter called for the four PCs to fight against eight NPC creatures […]

Gamex 2013 – Part 1

June 21, 2013 Mook 1

Well, Gamex 2013 ended a few weeks ago, and I have finally recovered enough for … post-convention wrap up time! Short version is, I pre-regged for 8 games but only managed to play 5 1/4 (due to feeling like poo […]

Creating a Cynosure Romp – Part 1

March 7, 2013 Mook 6

Probably the most common question any GM is asked, behind “Do you do it for the money, the prestige, or the groupies?”, is “How do you create your adventures?” In these posts I’ll be dissecting a recent convention game I […]

Strategicon OrcCon 2013 – Part 2

February 27, 2013 Mook 7

This is the second part of my OrcCon 2013 recap, covering the games I enjoyed and ran on Sunday and Monday. Part one is here, covering Friday and Saturday. The first two days of the convention were totally fun, but […]

Strategicon OrcCon 2013 – Part 1

February 21, 2013 Mook 6

It seems I completely skipped posting about any of the conventions in 2012! Once the dust has settled maybe I’ll see if I still have my notes and rectify that. I was recently lucky enough to attend the OrcCon 2013 […]

Strategicon Gateway 2011 – Part 2

September 14, 2011 Mook 0

Part two of my ramblings, review, and summary of the recent Gateway 2011 gaming convention (part one is here). Got a solid 6 hours of sleep, quick shower, bananas and an apple for breakfast, boogied on down to my first […]

Strategicon Gateway 2011 – Part 1

September 11, 2011 Mook 0

Can’t believe it’s already been 3 months since the last game convention! Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Strategicon Gateway 2011 convention here in LA. Just like Gamex in June, I had an awesome time – probably even […]

Strategicon Gamex 2011

June 10, 2011 Mook 1

My writing project has finally been completed (and on deadline!), so I have time to write up an overview of the recent Gamex game convention. As a warning – it’s long. I haven’t been to a gaming convention in probably […]

Back From Strategicon

June 1, 2011 Mook 0

Been back for a couple days now. The convention was a ton of fun! I’d like to put together a decent “After Con Report” in the next few weeks, but this week I’m scrambling to meet a June 6th deadline […]
