Radio Active #7: The Cold Lingers, Game FAQs, Gardens of the Moon

by Ken Newquist / May 28, 2005

It's been too long between podcasts -- thanks to a nasty cold that hit back at the beginning of May -- but with Radio Active #7, we're back on track. The podcast opens up with some updates about the show itself, and my plans for the future. I then go into a bit of a rant on game FAQs ... or rather, the lack there of. And then finally, I've got a review of Steven Erikson's Garden of the Moon, a dark fantasy novel with a militaristic edge.

Book of Exalted Deeds Is Unredeemable

by Ken Newquist / May 25, 2005

The Book of Exalted Deeds is meant to be the good and noble counterpart to the nefarious, twisted, profane -- and excellent -- Book of Vile Darkness source book by Monte Cooke.

Unfortunately, it takes the mirroring of that Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook too far, creating counterpoints for every aspect of the Vile Darkness but doing so in an unimaginative, and in some cases, dumb way.
