Road… Head? WHAT?

What the hell.. stumbled across this picture, and could not stop laughing, especially the fact that it was actually on the road, and not a joke. It was used for a promo in Texas for when the movie came out… I think I’d more then likely have to pull over if I saw this, because

Big Eyes Small Mouth.

Here is another game that I stumbled into like 10 years ago, and it was a fun little system. It was produced by the now defunct Guardians of Order, and is owned by White-Wolf now.

Let’s talk experience points…

So I was flipping through the Players Guide and Dungeon Masters Guide for First Edition AD&D, noticing that to gain a level, wasn’t easy. This made leveling a major event, not just another, “ok I leveled…”, instead, you feel accomplished, and it character meant something to you. I would like to point everyone to a
