EN World Review – Castles & Crusades: Night of the Spirits by Troll Lord Games

Posted By Editor-in-Chief on October 12, 2021

coverHappy Halloween Eve, Gentle Readers!

October is finally done – tomorrow is Halloween but it feels like the summer was only days ago!  I honestly don’t know where time has gone, but I have a feeling some of it has to do with having so many great game releases – both tabletop and video – coming out in the past few months!

This weekend looks like it will be quite busy for me, although not necessarily with games.  In addition to the typical Halloween parties going on, the anime and cosplay convention Youmacon will be held at Cobo Arena in Detroit this weekend starting this evening.  (more…)

TRoT coverHail and Well Met Gentle Readers!

Another week has sped by, Fellow Gamers, and the weekend draws near – with hopefully many opportunities for you all to have some great gaming fun.

Personally, I’ve got plans to do some in-depth playtesting of the new 5E Dungeons & Dragons this coming weekend.  In fact, just last Sunday, I had the opportunity to sit down and create a few characters from scratch and I have to say the process is very streamlined indeed.  And I got to try out a 1st Level character for a few encounters, and the new D&D runs pretty well – although I think hobgoblins are seriously overpowered for CR 1/2 monsters(more…)

TLP EBV CoverHappy Friday, Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers!

The weekend has finally arrived and I hope that you all have some great plans for some gaming fun over the next couple days.  For my part, I’ve got my regularly scheduled D&D 3.5 game this weekend, and my Bard Leandros has recently added some Druid training to his repertoire, learning the ancient lore and old stories of the world.  I’m closing in on being able to start the Fachlucan College Prestige Class which should be fun to explore.  Although there has been some debate about whether we should convert the characters in this current campaign over to the new 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons – at which point any plans for a Prestige Class becomes somewhat moot!

Secrets of Cats coverGood news Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers – it’s Friday and the weekend is finally here!

I hope you’ve all got some great plans this weekend for some tabletop gaming fun – sadly, this weekend, I’ve actually no gaming plans myself.  I’m the “on call” for my department this weekend, and in the past it’s just been too annoying to get everyone together only to have to cut things short when the GM (me) has to run off to work.  Better to just plan a quiet weekend at home with some video games, and hopefully get through the weekend as quietly as possible.

Monster Manual CoverHappy Thursday, Fellow Gamers!

I hope your week is going well for you, Gentle Readers, and that you’ve got some great gaming plans for this weekend.   Personally, I’ve got some awesome gaming plans this weekend, with a D&D 3.5 game to play in coming up on Friday night and on Saturday I’ve got my new Savage Worlds Aphelion Campaign to run.  I’ve really been impressed with how easy and fun it is to run a Savage Worlds campaign and my gaming group has really thrown themselves headlong into the setting. 

I’ve really got to find the time to write up a blog or two about my new campaign setting! (more…)
