Four Fun D&D Character Builds for Power Gaming

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition (5E) is one of my favorite RPGs out there. The system isn’t flawless.

Four Problematic Tropes to Drop

Kali and her gang from Stranger Things 2.

Despite what some people may tell you, storytelling tropes are not inherently bad. They’re just something that gets repeated often enough for us to give it a name. Plenty of them are very helpful to writers of all skill levels. But then again, some of … read more »
