  • Children of the Hammer This pdf is 30 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we! Now dwarves in Rhûne are different from those in traditional fantasy settings – an ancient race of industrial innovators, they are anything but dour and actually determined by one central concept: They know Ragnarök is coming, the final battle – and they intend on winning the conflict! Thus “do it right or don’t do it at all” could sum up their approach to just about anything – they intend to last, they intend to survive and thus they […]

  • No mortal man has ever heard the ancient saying: “One beard to rule them all, one beard to find them, one beard to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.” But it still rings true to this day. In fact these dwarves, and their beards, threaten to cause a dark envy to creep up from the depths of Mordor itself and consume any man who lingers too long in their presence. That being said, here are the top five Dwarf beards from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.   Gloin Gloin’s beard is as matchless as they come. I’ve had a lot of friends with great beards, but nothing that rivals the immaculate metal clad beard-ness that is Gloin’s […]

  • Tonight we got the story of Grumpy….and WHAT a story it was! Once again, Lee Arenberg hit it out of the park with his brilliant performance. In Fairytale Land, we meet Nova, played by the amazing Amy Acker. Does the woman not age?!     And how Fred-like was Nova? I literally JUST finished watching Angel for the first time two weeks ago, so seeing Amy in this type of character again was almost bittersweet. As Nova is flying over the land, a bit of fairy dust–which we find out is made from diamonds that are mined by dwarfs– accidentally falls onto a giant egg. That egg hatches early and who’s inside? Why, a dwarf, of course! Didn’t you know dwarfs are […]

  • SKYRIM Questions answered for our NERD TREK readers at PAX Prime 2011: Our time with Bethesda was limited so we couldn’t ask every question you submitted, but I think we did a pretty good job.   One of the guys from Bethesda told us that ours were the best string of questions by one media outlet he’s ever heard.  I credited the NERD TREK readers and he said he was very impressed.  Great job guys!  Here you go: Toney asked: Will there be Daedric Shrine quests? This question opened a can of worms.  Matt Carofano said that they have intentionally avoided confirming or denying this.  He said that they have NOT really talked about it yet.  Since the press demo […]
