Ritualistically Speaking: Cauldrons Rebirth

Ritualistically Speaking: Cauldrons Rebirth

I’m not a fan of necromancers, that is to say I’m not a fan of playing one. I’m a huge fan of using them as villains and adversaries of my PCs. To me, playing a character whose powers are based on calling up the dead to do your bidding is just not that romantic. I do know many people who want to play a character of the necromantic bent, and for them there is the ritual Cauldrons Rebirth.

Simple Reviews – Dungeons and Dragons Essentials: Rules Compendium

Simple Reviews – Dungeons and Dragons Essentials: Rules Compendium

I’m not very good at reviews. It’s true that if you figure out the correct pseudo name and search for it on google you might come across a few published video game reviews in some more than well established publications. It’s true that for a while I tried my hand at arbitrarily rating games using a numerical system with no real defined criteria. But this was all back when the gaming industry and the publications that reported on it were very young and in need of voices. These days I doubt I could get even some of the more niche or maligned blogs to pick up my rantings. I have a bad taste in my mouth for reviews; placing numerical scores behind title of a product, be they stars points or thumbs, feels so false. Communicating need or desire which you should have for a product really feels like me telling you the reader what your emotional response to a product should be and telling you that if you feel differently that you are some how wrong and should really examine you self on a deeper level.
