D&D Nerdcore - Dungeon Brothers

As some of you may know, I have a deep and abiding love for all things Nerdcore Hiphop. I was rambling around on r/nerdcore the other day, and came across a new group that I am really digging on. Dungeon Brothers from Portland. Their rap is focused on D&D. I like them so much I thought I'd suggest to others that they check out their bandcamp and give 'em a listen. I particularly recommend "I See Demons," "Sludge," and "Old Black Magic" if you've only got a few minutes to listen and pass judgement, but the entire record is entertaining if you like phat rhymes about dungeoneering adventure. The "My Apothecary Skit" and following song are also pretty on-target for how Goblin Apothecary's end up working in my games as well!

He-Man vs. Cthulhu at Nexus Game Fair 2016!

Its May of 2016 already, and you know what that means... Nexus Game Fair in lovely downtown Milwaukee this Memorial Day weekend!

This year I'll once again be running Shadows Over Eternia: He-Man vs. the Cthulhu Mythos (5e D&D). Only I'll actually be running two sessions of it, at 10am-4pm on Friday and 10am-4pm on Saturday (with breaks for lunch, of course).

He-Man and his friends must team up with Skeletor and his minions to fend off the forces of the Great Old Ones from taking over Eternia! You can check out the 5e character pre-gens on the Vorpal Chainsword Campaign Resources page.

I've run this He-Man game for two years now and its been a lot of fun, but I think this'll probably be the last time I run it at a Con. I've got other mash-up games I want to polish up and run at Nexus next year, and mentally closing shop on He-Man will force me to get back to work on the other ones. And after all, even He-Man can only take so much Sanity damage!

So if you are intrigued by the idea of He-Man battling snake-worshiping Servants of Yig and mind-shattering cultists of Hastur then I recommend you take this one last opportunity to sign up for:

Shadows Over Eternia - He-Man vs. the Cthulhu Mythos at Nexus Game Fair 2016!

A pic of He-Man riding a T-rex from the game at Nexus 2015. Yeah, things got pretty epic.

PS: I'll also be running a few sessions of Tower of Gygax at Nexus as well. I'm super happy they're bringing it back, and if you're a lover of all things deadly and AD&D, make sure you also check out Tower of Gygax!
