March hiatus is over! However…posts are still gonna be kinda slow.
Some video editing projects have come up, so my attention is being focussed elsewhere. Still, I’ll do what I can to keep D&D and gaming stuff coming.
Generica: My homebrew game system is mostly done and is now going through editing drafts and playtesting. In May I’m going to start reaching out to other artists to help contribute art for it.
Reviews: A whole bunch of D&D related books have come out, and I still haven’t gotten around to reading/reviewing them. I kinda suck like that. Sorry.
Something New: Thus far the content of Dungeons & Donuts has pretty much followed the model of “Whatever I’m currently working on or think is cool at the moment gets posted”. There’s nothing wrong with that kind of model, but I don’t know that it’s one I want to keep following.
This tumblr will be two years old in a few months, and I want it to grow and thrive. I’ve reached over 400 followers (which I’m extremely grateful and thankful for), but I want to expand and provide a steadier flow of unique content.
What do you think I should focus on? Videos? More comic-style reviews? Game tools like maps and random tables? G+ hangout games? Blog posts?
Leave your reply below. What do you think?
Love the negativity you've been getting. By the way, I think you're a big fat nerd who has an awesome blog! Thanks for being cool!
Aww, thanks. I try not to let it get to me.
Have any of your PC's died?
Almost all of them. I’m really reckless/impetuous/stupid when I play D&D.
My very first character, a human bard who looked like Rather Dashing, died being crushed by falling rubble after he suggested retreating from a giant floating boss god creature.
My second character was a human cleric, who died from eating monster slime on a dare.
Third character was a tiefling wizard who was eaten by giant spiders, giving the party time to escape.
And I have a long succession of G+ PC’s dying due to incompetence, misplaced bravado, and general naivety.
you're a piece of shit. fucking fat nerd who doesn't know what he's talking about.
While you’re not wrong…
What're some good D&D inspired movies. Having a marathon with friends.
Ghostbusters and Alien are my answers for everything.
You're absolutely ignorant to what makes D&D a good game. Unfollowed here and on Google+. Do yourself a favour and don't post to D&D Next any more.
I thought you'd said previously that you were reviewing The Reaver? Is that happening anytime soon?
I think you’ll find that this answers your question quite succinctly.
Who're YOUR favourite dungeon masters?
Honestly, I’m usually the DM whenever I’m a part of a game, but I do have some favourites.
Chris Perkins is a really swell guy and does some fantastic voices when he needs to. When I started running games, I took a lot of cues from him. He ran a column here.
Zak Smith is the best world-builder I’ve ever come across. He’s a hell of a lot smarter than I think a lot of his critics give him credit for. He also wrote the best “campaign guide” I’ve ever read. His blog is here.
Reynaldo Madriñan is probably the one I’ve had the most fun with. His sensibilities are pretty close to my own, and he’s got a real talent for incorporating really disparate characters and themes in his games, but making it all feel seamless and effortless. His blog is here.
Seeing them run games always encourages me to step my game up.
