Dragon Age RPG Links Compendium

by Ken Newquist / April 4, 2013

The Dragon Age Role-Playing Game is a rules-light, fast-playing pen-and-paper game based on Bioware's computer RPG of the same name. It's published by Green Ronin. My lunchtime gaming group is currently running through "The Dalish Curse" introductory adventure from Set 1, and I've decided to assemble a list of resources for the game.

Hoax Central: Don't Pump Gas, Aircraft Carriers Swarming, Easter Myths

by Ken Newquist / April 2, 2013

Here's a look at recent hoaxes, scams and even (shock!) a real story circulating via email and Facebook. They include a golden oldie about not pumping gas on April 15, a rant about aircraft carriers gathering in Norfolk, Va., a run down of Easter's pagan traditions, and more.

Star Wars: The Essential Atlas

My 40th birthday came and went in 2011 without much fanfare. So did my 41st in 2012. Part of it was because I didn't really feel like having a few dozen of my closest friends tell me how old I was, part of it was I was working hard on a mobile project for my day job.

I can't say that I didn't mourn the passing of my thirties -- jumping over the temporal barrier separating youth and middle age is something that you can't help but stop and notice -- but ultimately it was a more a bump in the road then a brick wall.

Nuketown's iOS RPG Tools Page

by Ken Newquist / March 26, 2013

The iPad has become an essential tool at my gaming table. I use my iPad 2 to look up rules, randomly generate NPCs, rolling dice, and controlling music on my Mac while my friends use theirs to run digital character sheets. When a critical hit or fumble occurs, I'm rolling up the results on my iPhone 5S. This page lists the iPad RPG Tools and iPhone RPG Tools that we use at our table. I'm looking for suggestions to add to this list; send your suggestions to nuketown@gmail.com..
