Live video streams and vidcasts are the big thing in role-playing games right now. Combined with the throwback Netflix series Stranger Things and the 80s-infused gamer novel Ready Player One the shows have helped produce a resurgence of Dungeons & Dragons and other RPGs.

As I wrote last week, the Blackrazors and their children will be running through the venerable module B2: The Keep on the Borderlands as part of our D&D Kids campaign. We're playing D&D 5th Edition, and are running a version of the module updated for that edition.
My summer reading list for 2016 kicked off Memorial Day weekend with a combination of military SF, space opera, and fantasy. The following books were read in late May and June, and did a good job of priming my brain for the heavy reading days in July and August.
It's time to hit play again. After a summer spent listening to novels, I've burned through my reserve of audio books. While my queue at Audible slowly refills, I'm looking for podcasts to listen to.
My intent is to listen to one or two podcasts a week during my morning workouts -- a far cry from the days when I'd listen to that many just driving to work -- but enough to keep somewhat current with the scene and provide intermissions from audio books.
The next generation of Blackrazor Guilders have strapped on their fathers' swords, sat down at the gaming table, and begun slinging dice. We have three kids (two boys, one girl) in the immediate group who want to play, and we have two of my son's friends (both boys) who are also eager to start casting spells and slaying monsters.
