Saturday Link: Beware the Sacrilege Edition!

Posted by Labyrinthian in , , ,

The Blog of Holding has been doing an absolutely Hilarious series about creating and playing with rules inspired by the awfully awesome movie Mazes & Monsters starring Tom Hanks when he was still young and desperate enough to star in any piece of trash that came along.  Their playtest was a great read that had me laughing from start to finish.  Bizarre rules, such as the one that states that the Maze Controller (GM) must say something "may be a trap" or it can't possibly be one, are so hilariously accurate that it is obvious that writer of tBoH must be a huge Mazes & Monsters fan.  Head over there and check it out, but do yourself a favor and, "Beware the Sacrilege!!!" 

We've never linked to Joe the Lawyer's Wondrous Imaginings here at the Labyrinth which is something of a crying shame.  Joe's site is great and we are from the same area so this is long overdue.  In this link Joe takes a look at the most recent Hasbro Earning reports and speculates on what they might mean for the future of Dungeons and Dragons. 

Big Ball of No Fun is a site that is pretty new to me.  There are so many great gaming sites out there that sometimes you stumble across one that you are amazed you've never seen before.  Here BBoNF takes a look at naming conventions and gives a number of great links to help the GM keep some consistency with his naming. 

Hackmastery is doing a series of articles that take a close look at the mechanics of Hackmaster basic such as Quirks and the Honor System.  Definitely worth checking out.
