Dungeons and Dragons: An Interview with Ethan Gilsdorf, author of Fantasy Freaks & Gaming Geeks

Dungeons and Dragons: An Interview with Ethan Gilsdorf, author of Fantasy Freaks & Gaming Geeks I first got Fantasy Freaks & Gaming Geeks for my 16th birthday, and as a big lover of all things geeky and nerdy, honestly I thought it was fantastic.

How to Play D&D 5E: Character Creation

How to Play D&D 5E: Character Creation Ever taken a look at Dungeons and Dragons and thought: “That looks like a ton of fun but super confusing.”? Well you are not alone! I, Darth Mexican, also went through the same thing in 2008 when I wanted to get into Dungeons and Dragons but had absolutely no idea how to break into it!

Anime Review: Grimgar Of Fantasy And Ash

Anime Review: Grimgar Of Fantasy And Ash Out of all the gimmicks that Anime has to offer, from Mecha like Gundam to Supernatural like Tokyo Ghoul, my all time favorite is Fantasy.

Among those, S...

Review: The Shannara Chronicles

That dog is none other than Terry Brooks’ Sword of Shannara trilogy which was originally written in 1977.

D&D: Playing With Female Gamers

D&D: Playing With Female Gamers Female gamers! Once upon a time even mention of girls and gaming in the same sentence was as fictitious as quick and DMV. However, those days are in the past and gaming has become far more widely accepted by the masses and now girls who love to game can shout about their passions at the top of their lungs and be accepted by all gamers. Granted, there are still a...

Legend Of Conan Bringing Some Original Cast I’m not quite sure what is in the water but getting a new Terminator film, Mad Max, Jurassic park, and other awesome films returning to the big screen, there is now news of Legend of Conan on the horizon and it will feature Arnold Schwarzenegger.
