Quick shout out to the Happy Whisk

The Happy Whisk is a loving gamer spouse and talented chef, but she's also a fanatic about uber-couponing, which hasn't ever been my thing before but she had a link on her site to a deal where you could load up on coupons for Digiorno's Pizza at Target.  Since I didn't feel like cooking for the gaming group tonight I followed her advice and saved $9 off $23 worth of frozen pizzas.  Hoody hoo!

In other news, we doing another session of Marvel Heroic Roleplaying tonight, and I'll post the report later this weekend.


  1. Hey, I was making breakfast supper and Tim called me in the office to read this. How cool. Thanks.

    I was looking at those pizzas just today. Curious to know what you think of them. Be nice to have a few in the freezer.

    Happy Gaming to you tonight.

    1. I'll let you know. Interestingly enough, one of them got flagged at the register as having been recalled.

      I love breakfast food for supper, especially when I get the waffle iron out.

    2. Yes, I heard about the recall but thought they would have pulled them all by now. Something about the plastic being in the pizza. Hope you didn't get that one.

      I miss my waffle iron. Looking for a new one. Do you like yours? What kind do you have?

      Another blogger got a groovy looking one but when I went to order it, it was already gone.

    3. PS: I found your email on your profile and sent you some coupon stuff.

A First Look at Prowlers and Paragons

For a long time I've been in the market for a new supers RPG.  Since running Marvel Heroic Roleplaying a few years ago, I've been looking at other games, including some that had been passed by the general public, e.g. DC Heroes Third Edition or Silver Age Sentinels.  This was based on the notion that supers RPG's are so niche and so under-performing as a general part of the RPG world that just because the game wasn't making a splash didn't mean it wasn't good.

Plus, I have my own tastes about what I like in a supers RPG, which I've touched on from time to time here, but to summarize I like a game that feels like a comic book, doesn't get bogged down in too much detail, but allows for PC growth and development in a tangible game-system way.  I also don't want to spend hours on character creation using a spreadsheet.  For that matter, it would be an added bonus if it could also accommodate a large number of players and didn't have glaring options…

Hexcrawling a City, an early look

One thing I've been slowly working on for the last year is another fantasy sandbox campaign.  My prior one was generally map-based, although a city featured prominently in it.  As time went by, it lost a lot of its "sandbox" quality and became more directed on my part.  In the process, I think it lost something.

So, after being away from fantasy for a solid year, it's time to get back to it.  I spent some of that last year thinking about cities.   Some fantasy RPG treat cities on a very detailed level, with maps of streets, etc.  But while that's fun "map porn" for GM's, how often would the players actually be seeing or using a map like that?  And how long would it take for them to just accrue that knowledge by exploring the city.  I've lived in my current city seven years, with a car, and I don't know how all the cities line up.  What I know are areas, neighborhoods, etc. some intimately, others not so much.  And if I was going to a new cit…

Large modular dungeon tiles

I made five 4" by 4" dungeon tiles, which is 80 square inches, almost twice my usual batch of tiles.  When added to what I've done already, this is how big a single room I can make:

14 by 14 squares, with four squares to spare.  That's a pretty big room (70 feet to a side).  If I wanted to mix it up, I could build something like this:

I'm probably going to take a little break from this project.  It has turned out well, but until I'm closer to doing a fantasy game I'm going to focus on the games I'm actually doing.
Speaking of which, it's game night tonight...
