Scrap Wood Dice Tower DIY

It wouldn’t be a week of toy making if a dice tower did not find it’s way into the mix.

We’ve been playing a lot of Pathfinder recently and it has been an amazing experience.  My wife is an elf rogue, my brother a human warrior and my neighbor/bff is wandering around as a wizard.  The trio has battled zombies, dragons, werewolves, goblins and more all before reaching level two.  With the campaign’s end nowhere in sight, I thought it would be a good time to bring a menacing looking tower to my side to instill fear into the heart’s of the PCs!

…and I really like the way dice sound when falling down a wooden tower. Continue reading

Saturday Gaming

Nothing to do? Bored crazy?  Is it raining outside?  No worries!

There’s a ridiculously fun fix.  For cheap.  Uber cheap (not that Uber though, I hear that gets pretty expensive)

I love telling stories.  If stories can be told while rolling dice or flipping cards with a group of friends, there can be nothing better.

Here are three awesome tools to get you up and running with fantasy RPG pretty much right away.

Cool internet thing of the week

This is not going to be a regular thing, but this is too neat to not share.

It’s been around for some time and there’s a feeling I’m the last to learn of it, but http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/ is seriously awesome.

It provides the ability to the lay person to put together a classic RPG game like Final Fantasy or Earthbound. Read some tutorials or just hop in and play, it is crazy easy to work with.

I am working on a sarcastic game, because sarcasm is easier to write than any genuine emotion.

I keep thinking of how neat the program would have been during my school days. Need to write a book report? Why not make Romeo and Juliet an 8bit adventure.

The free version ( what I’m working with now, because I’m cheap and the newborn means only the diapers are disposable, not the income), offers plenty of tools to still make a fun game and learn a thing or two about the code. Crazy fun to work with, check it out, make a game, post a download link in the comments.

Go make something fun.
