PaizoCon 2022 – Assimilation Strain

The Assimilation Strain.

It’s PaizoCon time! I can’t make it in person this year, so I’ll be doing the online con thing again, but I will be running a game for Legendary Games on Saturday – The Assimilation Strain Recently converted to Pathfinder 2E and D&D 5E, the Assimilation Strain is the prelude […]

Starfinder – Drift Crisis

Protean Attack.

I’ve noticed that folks seem to like the Starfinder book previews over the last year, and since I’ve got my digital copy of Drift Crisis, I thought I’d continue the series. It’s a different style of book than we’ve seen before in the Starfinder line, and maybe in any TTRPG […]

Starfinder – Boss Battles

Starfinder Boss Fight.

A recent conversation about the end of Dead Suns got me thinking about campaign climaxes and memorable encounters. Boss battles, if you will. So much of Starfinder, and many other TTRPGs, is combat encounters, how do you make what is essentially yet another combat stand out as a both a […]
