Weekly Roundup – New Author Edition

Yup, here we are, as promised, on Saturday morning.  Hope you’ve got your coffee in hand.  Before we get to the articles, we’d like to welcome Gregwa to our ranks of authors.  He’s just started the “How to Photograph Miniatures” series; we’re already looking forward to the future installments, as well as other things he may want to write about.  Speaking of which, here’s what some other people wrote about this week:

The Id DM resurrected the age-old argument of “rails vs. sandbox” to give it another go round.  His conclusion? Both!

We were excited to read about a new (to us) supplier of 3d terrain at Ben’s RPG Pile.  Read the article, look at the pictures, and check out the really affordable 3d terrain.

Geek Ken had another great article over at This is My Game about DMing for one.  (We highlighted his condition markers last week.)  While we’ve never done it, we’re intrigued by the idea, and would like to try it someday.

Big time kudos goes out to NewbieDM for his RPGKids! mention in the mega-blog Boing Boing.

Finally, over at The Tao of D&D there was a very thoughtful article on the role of gods and divinity in D&D.  In short, do the gods care about what your heroes do? Ok, the issue he presents is a little more complex than that, but you’ll have to check it out for yourself.

We hope you enjoy the weekly roundup on its new day, and be sure to check out the podcast tomorrow.  Leave us comments if we missed a killer article this week!
