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. Never had I come across a book before that detailed a journey about all the things I knew and loved, almost as a geeky encyclopedia. In Fanta...[Read More]

Set in the fictional city of Ergastulum; a writhing cro...[Read More]

Review: Game On Expo 2016

If you’re new to th...[Read More]
