To that end, we have created the RPGSC Discord Server! The only requirement for membership is a desire to play role playing games. […]

Physical Representations & Gaming Aids While I don’t normally use minis in games I run, they can certainly have an enhancing effect for many players. Don’t let them become the focus though.

Fun game, although a littly pricy now-a-days. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1311.R1.TR8.TRC1.A0.XHeroQuest&_nkw=heroquest&_sacat=0&_from=R40 […]
