The Rise of Point-Buy and Joys of Min-Maxing

By Stephen Radney-MacFarland (or Creighton's Sinister Nemesis)

Last week my dear friend and brilliant designer Creighton Broadhurst unleashed a diatribe against the point-buy method of generation of ability scores and min-maxing. I’m here to tell you he is dead wrong. And I believe I can prove it.

Bushcraft, Wild Camping and Encumbrance

I’ve recently posted about the fallacy of the adventurers backpack and kit for wilderness travel. I’ve become increasingly interested in creating my own adventurer’s kit to see how easy it would be to get out and go wild camping. At the same time, I though it would be cool to learn a bit more about bushcraft. So I purchased these books.

Handy, if I Ever Get to Play a Ranger!

I’m in the process of gathering my kit. Hopefully, when the weather gets a little bit better, I’ll be off on an adventure! I’ll keep you posted.

The Broadhurst’s Back in the Dragon!

Great news! It’s been ages since I’ve had an article in Dragon magazine, but a few months ago, I was asked to write a dressing-style article for the Tomb of Horrors! Of course, I immediately agreed and my article has just gone live in the newest issue.

Marvellously, Dragon is now a free read either at Dragon’s website or via the app. If you are planning a run-through of the infamous tomb I’d suggest you take a look…but then I might be a bit biased…

But, let me know what you think, in the comments below!
