  1. Play by Post vs. Live games: My thoughts

    Play by Post vs. Discord games

    Recently, I've been working on two different Starfinder games, one I'll be running live on Discord and one here on The Tangled Web. As I've been prepping those games, I've been thinking about the differences in Dming those styles of tabletop playing. The following are just my thoughts on how those formats of playing differ and how they're similar.

  2. Bushido: Alterations to Pendragon 5.1 for samurai games. (Pt. 2)
