Mothman reviews Legends of Avallen, a TTRPG inspired by Celtic Mythology in Roman Britain.

Apothecaria will be my first solo TTRPG. I’m mostly in the games for the shared storytelling and in person tabletop experiences. The whole solo thing really missed me for a while. Then COVID happened and all my in person games just shut down. It got me re-evaluating what I find important in a game, andContinue reading “Apothecaria: Review”
Mothman reviews Adrenaline: Near Future, Forged in the Dark. A high octane, contemporary cousin to Blades in the Dark.
The original Resident Evil 2, along with Resident Evil: Outbreak are some of my favorite games of all time.
