Repost Coyote & Crow

This week I’m reposting a review that I published a while ago for the game Coyote & Crow, a game written and inspired by Indigenous peoples. This week being American Thanksgiving, a holiday which is about family and food as well as rosy visions of a fraught national legacy, it seemed like an excellent time for another signal boost for this great game.

How to Create Wanderhome Natures

Today’s post is a bit of a sneak preview for something I’ve been collaborating on. In Wanderhome the many places you visit can be anything you wish and the prompts provided are fairly wide open but I think people sometimes get stuck in a literal mode.

And Around the Corner for Wanderhome

It’s been a bit since I posted here about Wanderhome, but it’s never left my heart. I’ve been quietly plugging away at a few different projects including a sequel to my supplement Down the Wandering Road. At long last that sequel is ready for the world to see!

Utopia Planitia Review

Today I’m here with another Star Trek Adventures review, this time looking at the new Utopia Planitia Starfleet Sourcebook full of everything you might need for starships in your campaign. While there’s already an excellent review (which I entirely agree with) on Continuing Mission, I wanted to give a little more detail. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while and, not to get ahead of myself, it’s well beyond my expectations.
