My blog: Studded Plate

Post by timemrick »

I've decide to risk the madness that is writing my own gaming blog. Studded Plate will be primarily devoted to my twin obsessions with RPGs and LEGO. To start things off, I've republished three articles I wrote some time back about using LEGO minifigures as RPG miniatures. I plan to write more columns in that vein, as well as reporting on the games I run, reviewing new acquisitions to my gaming library, sharing the progress of other projects, and whatever else strikes my fancy and fits the main theme. Basically, a somewhat more organized approach to the stuff I ramble about here.

Nice questionnaire. These things are good to refer to and I may just have to 'borrow' it to help out my newer players.

I have to agree, lots of stuff to take into consideration when creating a new character. One thing I dislike about creating so in-depth all at once though is having them meet an untimely demise.
