OSR Christmas or How the grognard stole Christmas

Well it’s December 2015. I’m still trying to figure out what happened this year. New management at work, some ups and downs with health, and I am still sitting on 4 projects that I need to get out the door. Enough of my bellyaching though.

The word of Gygax

About a week ago I was at my FLGS and ran into one of the local gamer kids.  He is someone that I admire for being open to playing different sorts of RPGs at a young age, but he tends to be a bit annoying at times.  He came up to me while I was […]

Bridging the Gamer Generational Gap?

Hello Again… First off I wanted to congratulate Tim H. for winning the blog opening contest.  His ideas game me some great fuel for thought.  Thanks to the others who also offered some sound ideas.  Grappling and overbearing rules have been a bug up my behind for many years, and now that I am about […]

A DM only rolls the dice because of the noise they make…

  After 20 minutes of pondering how to open this blog and two weeks to figure out what I wanted to write… here it is. Welcome to Hexgeneration.  This blog serves two purposes.   1. to be a voice on my favorite topics (Role Playing Games, 80s-90s Goth, and Pop Culture).  2. game design/industry discussion. […]
