Star Wars Openings, Past and Present

Star Wars Openings, Past: STAR WARS (1977) – I’d read about “Star Wars” crossing the Atlantic, on a 747, possibly listening to Fleetwood Mac on the god-awful earbuds you rented from the airlines for $4, back then.

DM Me (Part II)

Aurora

Here’s the thing: Not long after painting minis again, and running my first DMing sessions in, what, 15 years for my nieces and nephews, I stumbled across some old files I’d saved. My campaign maps from the late 80s and early 90s. And lightbulbs went off. The Southern Lands are not particularly auspicious, as roleplaging campaigns go. […]

DM me! (Part I)

Schnick and Schnack lead the way!

Last weekend, for the first time in maybe 15 years (and possibly – gulp – more), I DM’ed me some Dungeons and Dragons. This may come as a surprise to some folks, given the roleplaying cred of my comic strip, Dork Tower. It sure shocked the heck out of me, once I did the maths. Don’t […]

I’m going to Brazil in a week or so. This still blows my mind.   Though I missed much of GameHoleCon (“The Best Three Days In Gaming With the Worst Name ™”), two days after the medics cut me, Alex Kammer dropped by the house with a surprise. World’s. Largest. Owlbear.

Please don’t suck. Please don’t suck. Please don’t suck.

DorkTower1301PROMO

Yesterday’s DORK TOWER: I am all four characters, though the last panel is (I think) obviously most me. Much has been shown to us, at this point, from Episode VII. More than there ever was for Episode I, by far. So though this was my reaction to the first Episode I trailer, way back when…I […]
