Skip to main content - D&D 5 and Pathfinder goodness from industry veterans

I had kind of wondered what happened to my friend Patric Rogers, since he hasn't updated since his daughter was born.

Turns out he's writing his "Little Detective Story" (apparently written like a screenplay, and mapped to eight different "scripts," so far, and over 300 pages combined. Yeah, it's both epic and a fucking wonderful read.)

He's also teamed up again with gamer legend Darrin Drader. Rememer Dark Portal Games? Yeah, no one does, but Rogers and Drader and Robert Blezard were all part of it, and now they're working together again.

Patric posted this to his G+ thread:


Do me a favor and spread this around? I'm part of this company, and if we get piles of subscribers, i can quit my day job, write full time, and convert 11 years of notbooks into proper gamer goodness.

Thanks to Facebook picking and choosing who sees what for us, I have no clue if you've gotten the word yet. I don't want to be spammy, but my new company is running a Patreon campaign that I think you might be interested in. You can find it at

Whether or not you decide to back it, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts.

And again, please spread the word, so people know we're in business.

Basic Fuckanomics

You're born with a ton of fucks to give. So you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give a fuck about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers opinions ..... you give away too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. then, as you get older you have maybe ten fucks per month.... so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to your family and career, but there aren't enough fucks left to give the newest shit. So someone at work has something they need my help with that's outside my job title? I'll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. 
Then you get even older, so you're down to one or two fucks a month.... and those fucks are damn precious. You give them to your family, your hobbies, your job... and that's kind of it. It's not your fault fucks expire too quickly. I would have liked to save my fucks when I was younger, but I can't. 
Then you hit fuck insolvency. you…

DnD 5e - the Ultimate Guide to Ritual Casting

The Ultimate - and I mean ULTIMATE - guide to ritual spellcasting in 5e. The author even used color-coding. This is awesome.
For example, it seems so obvious to me that a ritual casting would require the character to stand still, but apparently not. The character can walk and chant at the same time.
The color-coding is great, and makes it really clear the only spell list worth ritualizing is the wizard spell list. Well, that is unless or until we get a 5e version of "Relics & Rituals" which expanded the ranger and paladin lists so incredibly much that we actually had someone play a ranger with Scribe Scroll, just so she could use all those cool spells (and wow, did she).

Radiant Tank Top Heaters

I had a Mozart "for concentration and study" vid running in the background on YouTube, when an advert for Radiant Tank Top Heaters by Global Industrial came on.
Definitely not the kind of thing I normally expect, but I got curious, and once I saw the images of "propane tanks with laser dishes" my mind went running all over the place.  These things seem really dangerous, but also very practical.  I can see every dude-bro's garage workshop with at least one of these, and if I was out in that shop on a freezing-ass cold  day, I'd be parked next to this thing, because I'm tough, but still smart enough to stay warm.
My first random thought was the Star Warslaser dish cannons.  I loved Empire Strikes Back, and always thought these things were cool in a totally impractical kind of way. I love that Lucas and his people always seemed to let their imaginations run wild. I mean, just because WE think it might be impractical doesn't mean some other galaxy-span…
