Jonathan Nelson: Good morning EZG!  I hope you don’t mind but Joshua Gullion and Will Myers from Adventureaweek will also be joining us for this interview. To answer your question, this trilogy ultimately boils down to a very determined drow matron named Maelora Gullion, whose thirst for power throws the entire balance […]

  •   There was a point in the history of the RPG industry where games were strictly handled with a pencil, a handful of dice, and some paper.  Fortunately this industry is nothing if not fluid and flexible, adapting and growing with the technologies of the times.  I remember when PDFs became a common thing as an RPG standard allowing smaller publishers to enter the market.  For me that was truly the first step toward the evolution of role-playing games.  Following the curve of today’s gamers, and embracing the technologies at our fingertips, are Jonathan G.
