We’re on a weekend trip to Shrewsbury! <33 I am currently in my hotel having a rest and refresh before dinner. It’s been such a lovely, relaxed and touristy day today. Here’s what we’ve been up to…
Beware the Smiling DM: Dungeon Master Tips
Way back when he first started out as our DM, I asked Stef to give us his top dungeon master tips. Now with over 3 years experience in an (almost) weekly campaign, and now that I’ve started to run my own games, I decided to have a chat with Stef about the things he and I have learned on the way!
Nerds on Tour: Mini weekend trip to York
A little write up of our weekend trip to York – I had a bad back but we made the best of it given the circumstances! I didn’t manage to take all the Halloween photos I wanted, but we still had a lovely time!

How many bookshops? Our Overnight trip to Hay-on-Wye
I’ve wanted to go to Hay-on-Wye ever since I heard about how many bookshops they had in one town. I couldn’t wait to do a staycation there, since we’re not going to be going abroad any time soon!
Here’s how it went, and what I recommend!
Critical Hit! Making Icewind Dale Taverns More Interesting
A little guide to making Icewind Dale taverns a little more interesting. In a particular part of the campaign there is a series of 5 inns with minimal description. After my players took a particular interest in these inns as a “bar crawl” I created a mini-series of taverns that had unique quirks. Here’s a guide to how you can make these Icewind Dale taverns an interesting destination in-game.
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. For this reason, people tend to slide into particular stereotypes and norms. Here are some easy ways you can diversify your D&D games!
GeekyClean Review: A Bardic Inspirational Pampering Session
We all need a little TLC now and then – more-so nowadays than ever! I thought I’d treat myself to a mini haul from GeekyClean, a place that specialises in handmade bath bombs with a nerdy twist. They have a huge selection of D&D themed ones so I gave them a go… here’s my verdict!
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.

I just wanted to tell you about September’s Papergang Box by OhhDeer – a subscription service for stationery lovers! I live for space themed goodies and so this box seemed like it was made for me – plus I got it for the tidy price of £7 as it was my first box! Bargain!
