Critical Hit: Diversity in D&D and how to diversify your NPCs

Creating a diverse and norm-breaking campaign is a challenge within itself on top of a ton of things a DM already has to remember. Dungeon masters need to introduce a character, flesh them out, make them believable and make sure that the players can get a good idea of who they are in a very short amount of time.

This Girl is on Fire! Rekindling my blogging spirit

Lately, I’ve been feeling quite sad that my blog has remained dormant for so long! After a brief chat with my pal, Lizzie, she’s told me that once she stopped worrying about stats, or “having something important to say” it took a weight off her mind and now she just posts what she feels. Reports on all her days out, her outfits, her feelings. That’s what I’ve been missing from blogging! That… and the additional time it takes to write.

Embracing my Capacity for Creativity with London Drawing Group

Nerds on Tour: Rest, Relaxation and Llamas

When visiting Faster Lente Llamas this weekend- a glamping site with added llamas – I finally exhaled. I felt like the breath that I’d been holding for the past few weeks had finally been released. It was tranquil, it was blissful… and there were llamas. I invite you to explore this amazing experience vicariously through me, and then maybe go and try it for yourself.

Bloody Hell, It’s Marvellous: My honest review of Floweret Cup*

So… haha… bleeding. For anyone who’s ever had a menstrual cycle, we can confirm it’s just NOT FUN. Period. (That joke would work, if I were American.) For every person who’s felt the discomfort of a period, the embarrassment of a leak or the annoyance of having to find a place to change your tampon… Look no further. Floweret cup is a game-changer.
