Weekly Roundup: Happy 2012 Edition

Well, it’s happened again. You’ve wasted another perfectly good year reading D&D blogs. As we head into 2012, and our second full year of blogging, we hope to keep bringing you great weekly roundups, lots of arts and crafts, and plot hooks and DM advice you can use. Oh, and the podcast, of course.

If you missed the Got Loot blogfest hosted by Daily Encounter you should definitely check it out. Our contribution was on Thursday, but other blogs were contributing all week, including some guest posts at the host blog.

The Escapist had a great 3 part series on the past, present, and future of D&D. There are lots of great points and thoughts in the articles, some made by staff at WotC. Also, here are some followup thoughts at ENWorld by one of the articles’ contributors.

Robert Schwalb wrote an article this week after a blogging hiatus. It involves his thoughts on skill challenges in 4e – their origins, and his thoughts on them as one of 4e’s designers.

Need something to read over the holiday? Download the 107 page 2011 compilation of Chris Perkins’ WotC colum, The Dungeon Master Experience.

Need a little Gamma World inspiration? Check out this animated short at Ain’t It Cool News. This is definitely something we’d like to see as a feature length film!

Arts and Crafts! Oh how we love them! Check out The Armchair General who is doing some pretty cool stuff with foam insulation board and textured paint. Genius!

Finally, there was the story of the Lakers coach who plays D&D with his son. You can find that article here.

Blast From The Past (Weekly Roundup: 2010 In Review Edition)

We’ll just link the entire Weekly Roundup because it’s a review of some of our favorite articles from 2010. Great list, it’s nice to browse blog archives sometimes; it’s not like the advice gets stale!

    I’m with several other Twitter game folk who say that we don’t need anymore edition articles:) I started to read that Escapist series but it just brought me down with all the negativity. Hats off to bloggers who focus on the positive (like you guys).
