 Celebrate 50 Years of Dungeons & Dragons All Year Long!
Posted: Mon, 12 Feb 23:13:31
Category: Articles, Features, DnD
Out of a small cobbler’s home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in 1974, generations of dreamers and adventure-seekers were inspired with the publication of the first version of Dungeons & Dragons. The tiny black text and line drawings printed on those first pamphlets have grown into beautifully illustrated tomes, meticulously crafted physical artifacts, and comprehensive digital tools all designed to enhance the core of D&D: Getting together to tell fantastic stories with friends and family. Now the stewards of that legacy of imaginative play, Wizards of the Coast is poised to celebrate five decades of fantasy roleplaying in 2024 by engaging with fans at events around the world and offering games, entertainment, and products informed by the history of D&D to inspire generations to come.

 Make Something Beautiful Together
Posted: Mon, 12 Feb 15:09:09
Category: Blogs, pathfinder, rpgs
A creative outlet in any form seeks to make something that evokes emotion. Game design, much like any creative outlet, wants to evoke those same emotions. That said, the methods to achieve them are a bit different from other more "traditional" art. It vicariously rides the lines between inspiration and execution, as both are imperative to game design. A game mechanic is much like a seed, planting an idea or story in the player's mind so that it may grow into something more. This sprout takes shape within the player's mind, often as a character, creature, or specific scene of action.
