Hello, good people. Thanks for stopping by again! As the proud owner of a video game blog and podcast, you’d think my days would be brimming with gaming, to make sure these entertainment options would be overflowing with my impressions and analysis.
One of my favorite things in the world is boating. I love being on the water. I love feeling the wind and the waves as we zip from place to place, and the freedom and adventure that come along with it.

I stumbled on this story today: D&D Beyond
I’ll spare you from reading the entire article and sum it up for you: Wizards of the Coast is making a D&D app (called D&D Beyond) aimed at completely removing books and paper from table-top role-playing. Whoa!
As an old-school gamer, with an aversion to apps, my first thought was, “Wtf?!”; but as a semi-objective quasi-blogger, I’ll try to give it a fair roll-of-the-d20 before I trash the entire concept… so lets do it!
