Power2ool: Better than paper

I started planning the D&D game I ran over the last weekend some years ago in a Moleskine notebook while on a cruise boat to Sweden. Since then I’ve iterated on the plan and written it up in Google Docs

Space Marines!

It’s a good time to be into Warhammer 40 000. There’s the MMORPG coming out, the action game (which looks awesome), the movie recently came out, more Dawn Of War II, and now the third entry in the Warhammer 40K

Games of the year 2010

As usual, I’ve missed out on several “game of the year” candidates in 2010, only getting to them some time later, if ever. These include Red Dead Redemption (which I will get), Mass Effect 2 (will play), the new Call

What I’ve been playing this summer (part I)

Dark Heresy (tabletop) Who knows, maybe I should see some people during the summer, too. The campaign has started off strong and I’m beginning to get a good ol’ RPG buzz. Who knew playing space fascists could be so much

Warhammer 40’000: Space Marine

Warhammer 40’000 is all about violent action and it’s something of a wonder that its rich universe hasn’t spawned any decent action games. I haven’t played the 2003 title Fire Warrior, but the word is not in its favor. Relic
