My Lunchtime D&D Toolbox

by Ken Newquist / December 2, 2014

My lunchtime game is back on. After a six-month hiatus we've returned to our once-a-week, one-hour sessions, this time powered by Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.

Preparation is essential for the games. We play at a co-worker's house, and I have to bring everything I need with me. With only 60 minutes I can't be spending time fumbling around for dice, index cards, pens or any of the other essentials that I take for granted when gaming at home.

My GenCon 2014 Shopping List

by Ken Newquist / August 14, 2014

One of the big reasons I come to GenCon is to play games, but it's not the only reason: shopping is another. In 2000 I bought my first Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition Player's Handbook there, in 2014 I'll by my first 5th Edition PHB. This is where I got my Battlestar Galactica and Serenity RPG books, as well as more d20 sourcebooks than I care to mention.

The Road to GenCon 2014

by Ken Newquist / August 13, 2014

I'm on the road to GenCon 2014. In seven hours I'll be in Indianapolis, rendezvousing with friends, checking into the hotel, picking up my registration pack ... and getting reading to roll some dice. As I wrote a few months ago, this is my first trip to GenCon since 2007. A lot has changed since then -- from what I've heard, the convention has gotten even bigger than it was then (and it was hella big then, having outgrown Milwaukee a few years earlier).
