Curse of Strahd seems like good goth-y D&D fun so far

Shame on me. I made a mental note to write about Curse of Strahd the day it came out last week, but GDC's chaos complicated my plans. I read about half of the new adventure book for Dungeons & Dragons while on Steven's futon betwee...   read

I'm not quite convinced that Dungeons & Dragons can easily be converted to fit Fallout's classless (game-wise, not social stature-wise) RPG style, but that didn't stop a person on the internet from dreaming up this 'lil baby: Whil...   read
