Free RPG Day 2017  Free RPG day is upon us, and once again, like the kid who’s family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, I’m left empty handed and wondering what all the hype is about.

Since 2007, Free RPG Day has been partnering with RPG publishers and friendly local game stores (FLGS) to bring new quickstart rules and exclusive modules to gamers around the world. Providing of course, you have an FLGS in your area. Previous free RPG loot included in the celebration T-shirts, dice, Munchkin add-ons, Pathfinder modules, and dozens of new game quick start rules. This years Free RPG Day loot includes the new Runequest quickstart rules, a Pathfinder Bestiary, and I’m personally excited about the Modiphius Entertainment “Robert E. Howard’s CONAN” RPG quickstart rules.
But alas, I won’t be waiting for the ghost of Gary Gygax to leave RPG goodies for me under the game table this year either. Continue reading

What I Read in May ‘17

So this month contains massive spoilers if you haven’t read the books I’m talking about.  Go do so, or don’t. But I truly recommend you do.  Continue reading

I’ll be honest; I hate filtering. I hate that there is so much crap my kids can be exposed to that I HAVE to filter, 24/7 on every single form of media just to make sure we stay within the realm of age-appropriate content. It’s frustrating. Exhausting. It’s flat out annoying. It’s annoying for ANY parent, but I think it’s especially so for a geek mom.

When you are adamant about timing of exposure to certain stories, behaviors and experiences, it can make momming pretty challenging when all you really want to do is immerse yourself, and your family, deep within the four color well of never ending awesome. Now, I know plenty of geek moms who don’t think twice about it, let their kids watch whatever and their children are perfectly well behaved, well adjusted humans with good attitudes, so what am I so worried about??
