Ever tried an RPG and the game just doesn’t capture you, or you’ve felt uncomfortable or even bored?! Following on from some pretty awful games / dungeon master situations I’ve been in recently, I thought I’d give you some top tips on how not to be a nightmare games master!
So this is what it’s like to be a parent… Constantly at a tiny thing’s beck and call. An incessant MEEP MEEP – feed me! MEEP MEEP – I did a poo!
This is my life as a parent. This is my life, with a Tamagotchi.
Clerics are one of the staples of a well-thought-out D&D party. Whether you’re in a dragon’s lair, getting ambushed in an orc camp, or your sorcerer rolls a Nat 1 on wildmagic and fireballs your airship… you’re going to need a healer. Here are some top tips on playing a cleric effectively in Dungeons and Dragons.
I recently started a local community in my area, and was asked by a fellow geek – how do I start one in my area?

Nerdy bits and pieces are popping up everywhere – here are but a few of them.
Muggle Musings is coming to an end this weekend and it’s broken my heart a little bit, but I know deep down that it’s for the best.

I feel I’ve learned so much during such a short time so I wanted to share it with you.
Since I posted my first blog post on Nerdy enamel pins and where to find them, lots has changed. Not just generally in my life, but also there’s a heck load of new pins on the market as their popularity has BOOMED. Here are just a few of my favourites and a few on my wishlist!
