William O’Connor Remembrance

I first became aware of William O’Connor back in the 90s when I was working with Last Unicorn Games. Bill did some amazing interior illustrations for Last Unicorn’s Aria: Canticle of the Monomyth RPG. I was not at all surprised when I started seeing his incredible art in D&D books, both interior and covers. He did the …

A Look at D&D Camp: Shippensburg University

How many people know that Shippensburg University, here in my home state of Pennsylvania, held week-long D&D camps every summer during the mid-eighties? That’s right, a summer camp for D&D!  Instead of basket weaving and archery, you played Dungeons & Dragons … all week. It was a lot of fun (I attended the last two years, and …

Shadows of the Dusk Queen Designer’s Diary

When I’m working on something, I typically write on the computer, then print out a draft, which I put into a zippered, 3-hole binder that I carry around, read over, and mark up. I then implement those changes into the file, print out a new draft, which goes into my cool zippered, 3-hole binder that …

Kobold Quarterly #21: Designing the Shaman

It’s all the oracle’s fault. I’ve been playing a half-orc oracle of stone in one of our bi-weekly campaigns, and I’m having a blast. He is great fun to play. His various class features make him useful in lots of situations, and I’ve found I really like playing a spontaneous caster. Don’t get me wrong—I’ve …
