This week saw the loss of one of the worlds greatest comedians of all time, Robin Williams. As horrible as the circumstances are around his passing, it is a situation that provides all of us in any form of entertainment large and small the opportunity to reflect on ourselves and the people we care about. For all the manic comedy and apparent optimism Robin Williams put out into the world to entertain and inspire, he could never really shake the demons deep inside that haunted him until the end. Look to the ones you love, those you call family and friends, and remember to be there for them and that they are there for you.
While the world is a far darker and sadder place without the wit and humor of Mr. Williams, let us all take a moment to remember a great entertainer and celebrate the life he lived.
Robin, this episode is for you.
So, the crew over at Gamerstable wrapped up their Conan Character Submission Contest this week in preparation for their next Savage Worlds actual play podcast. I (and apparently plenty of other gamers out there) caught wind of the contest and decided to jump headlong into the creation process, albeit with two minor problems. The first problem, I had only ever created five Savage Worlds characters, so I’m pretty much a n00b to the system. The second problem, the extent of my knowledge regarding the Conan universe is limited to the 1980’s films Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer. Ignoring these minor inconveniences, I forged ahead (thanks to my copy of Hero Lab and plenty of time spent at the Conan Wiki). Although I was not one of the lucky winners, I’m still proud of the characters I drafted and have decided to share them here, in all their fleshed out and statted glory.
2013 is only about a week old, so I feel it’s still young enough in the year to reflect on my personal top five gaming moments of the year past. 2012 was surely filled with plenty of gaming – from board games and video games to RPGs and podcasts – so I thought I should give a nod to those out there that made last year one of (if not THE) best years in gaming I’ve had. The following are in no particular order.
