Links of DOOM: D&D 5th Edition Sneak Peak

It's that time of the week again: Time for a random list of stuff that you probably won't click on. And why not, I ask? There's lots of neat stuff out there on the interweb, and here I am consolidating it for you in one nice, neat package.

PICK OF THE WEEK: The good folks at Gothridge Manner pointed out this book review and the author's insane response in the comment section. SWEET MOTHER OF GOD, this is hilarious, and I hope I don't react like this if anyone ever reviews my work.

Here's a cool post about turning mistakes into character-building opportunities at Exchange of Realities.

This guy is having an existential crisis about our favourite hobby. Check out KORPG to see if you can figure out if we're really still playing D&D or not.

Redwald told me in the comments of a post a few weeks ago that I should try Labyrinth Lord. I didn't know much about it, but then I stumbled upon this great review at Gaming Brouhaha.

Convention season is approaching (actually, a few have already started), so here's a helpful Convention Survival Guide from Roles, Dice and Fun.

What would happen if Tiamat had a Facebook profile?

I love MapTools. But this guy is way better at using it then I am.

Need some cool music for your game? Or just want some awesome metal/industrial/electronica to brighten up your day? Check out SHOUTcast DEMONIC. Go, do it now. I'll wait.

That's it for me! Have a great weekend!


P.S. Yes. The title of the article was my lame April Fool's joke.

    I came across the book review with the ... strong author reaction a few days ago and I so want to use "Hypnotically Gino" as in "Don and Katy watched hypnotically Gino place more coffees out at another table with supreme balance." as a name for an NPC/PC. It sounds like some sad wannebe superhero.

  2. What's really sad, is that I almost never fall for April Fool jokes, and this one got me, hook, line and sinker. Man, I'm pathetic... :)

    It's okay. You fell prey to my brilliant scheme and sparkling intellect. Happens all the time.

    What would his costume look like? I picture something with glowing purple fluorescent lights, like the underside of a Honda civic.

    That would fit, but only if the lights flash on and off. For that hypnotically effect. Beware the power of *drool*

    I actually read that entire blog / comment thread to the end. Some people are just *special*
