For example, I created a culture of ... well, they could best be described as looking like giant flying squirrels without the tails. They didn't speak any common language and communicated primarily with empathy and dreams. There was a mini-story line within their area that the characters chose not t...

I played an early beta of Guild Wars. It was decent. I played a later beta of Guild Wars. It was not good at all. I couldn't figure out how they ruined it. There seemed to actually be LESS content than before. To me, the subscription fee is worth the quality for WoW. I wish I could just pay a flat f...

WoW's battlegrounds are supposed to be amazing. A friend of mine is playing on the test servers. He says it takes the game to an entirely new level. Can't wait until it goes live.

Lots of good points, here. Hooray! For me, the point when I felt most like I'd grown as a DM was when I realized that I don't have to limit myself. The strength of the game is that you can do ANYTHING. The only limitations are the imaginations of the DM and the players. Feel free to stray from the M...

The trailer was just awesome. Laughed like silly. Was pumped for the movie. I read the books years ago. Didn't care for the movie. The best parts were usually voiced-over, which means you might as well have read it. It just didn't translate well into cinema. It was weird. It was silly. It was mildly...

Agreed. Excellent series. I hope that it's revived after the film comes out.

I could go on and on about why Firefly was a great series and most other crap out there is not. But I won't. I just recommend that anybody who hasn't seen it rent or buy it. Hurry! :wink:

Anthentar - kind of. Not exactly a setting up of a new empire, but rather a redevelopment of order out of the inevitable chaos resulting from the Empire's fall. Asimov wrote it based on his readings of The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. I think you're thinking of the same books I am, though. Fan...

I enjoy the toons over at Penny Arcade. Video-game related. Good blog over there, too. m I also enjoy the comics at Fruitsnake.com, but unfortunately they're infrequent. m And of course Homestar Runner is a fantastic site. Just amazing what they do with Flash over there. Creative, funny, and updated...

I hear ya, Ariel. I would never say Harry Potter was "just for kids". I'd recommend those books to everybody. Same goes for a lot of great young adult fantasy: The Dark is Rising, The Giver, The Chronicles of Narnia, etc. They appeal to an older audience because they're just that good. Redwall does ...
