Weekly Roundup: So God Made A Gamer Edition

If you watched the Superbowl this year, and saw the “So God Made A Farmer” ad, you’ll want to watch this:

On to the articles!

At the Pelgrane Press blog, Robin D Laws went on a mini rant about modules and adventures that say “should” when they really mean “can.” He takes on the passive agressive nature of this wording head on.

The Howling Tower took on a difficult topic – Class balance – in a thoughtful and thorough article. Is class balance achievable? If it is, should it be sought after?

Win a really cool castle (no, seriously, this castle is awesome) at the Terrainscapes Youtube channel! Check the video description for the entry form link.

Someone on Twitter linked this page this week; if you’ve got some time on your hands, and are a history buff, check out these texts that inspired JRR Tolkien to write Lord of the Rings.

Froths of 4e cleared up some 4e myths. Agree or disagree?

The Angry DM is at it again, this time ranting about PC backstories. It always seems there’s either none or waaaay too much. How do you find balance?

Dungeon’s Master encourages us to add more flavor and attitude to towns in our campaign.

Finally, on the non-RPG front, Boardgamequest posted a great list of games under $20. We own at least a few of them, and agree with all the recommendations. Pick up one or two of them yourself, and save a little cash!
