Dragons and dice and dungeons! It’s Wyrmling Dice!

See, I told you yesterday that it’s a great time for dice collectors of all stripes. Yesterday we talked about a cool resin dice set. What if you want something that’s heavier? That’s metal! And if you want a more-compact metal set, then this campaign for the Wrymling Dice is what you need to look at.

Here, fishy fishy! Oh, those are dice?

Back when I first started into the world of tabletop roleplaying games, it felt like my dice choices were limited. I had some handed down from my cousin, and eventually it was picking up some basic colors from the local shop. Well, now, there is an amazing array of makers out there creating lovely custom stuff. One of ones that caught my eye recently is the Keyfish Crit by Green Leaf Geek.

It’s back to Ptolus for you!

When it comes to your tabletop role playing games (TTRPGs), you’ve got a choice of how to run your games. If you’re just starting out, prebuilt modules and adventures are a solid way to go – it builds a framework and story for you that you can riff on (or follow to the letter) as you need to. Alternatively, you can go completely freeform. That’s fun if your imaginative, but it can talk a lot of prep work. If you want to fall somewhere in the middle, then something like Ptolus could serve you well.

Hero Forge is bringing pre-printed color to your TTRPG

In case you’re not aware of it, table-top role playing games (aka TTRPG) are having quite a resurgence. Some of that (ok, a lot of that) is driven by the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons, but there are a ton of great game systems out there. Whatever the system, Hero Forge has been ready to help you design (and then 3D print) a minifig to help represent your character in the game sessions. One of the bigger drawbacks – for most – is something that Hero Forge is addressing with their latest Kickstarter project – adding color!

Das Keyboard 4C Tenkeyless (TKL): My favorite keyboard now comes minimized

Right now I’m clicking away on a DasKeyboard that I’ve had for almost six years. It’s a wonderful keyboard, click as the day is long, and wildly comfortable. I’ve tried others – including a failed affair with a 60% keyboard that left me wanting – and I’ve always come back to Das.

The $200 Analogue Pocket is the perfect retro gaming handheld

Analogue has been making clever remakes of old consoles and now they’ve one-upped themselves with the Pocket. The device, which is about as big as the original Game Boy, can play Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games – the cartridges, not the ROM files – and will be able to play Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color and Atari Lynx with upcoming adapters.
