The Tome Ep 48: 4e Monsters

profile.jpgChris Engler and Jeff Greiner talk 4e Monsters in this episode. It's worth noting again that a lot of info came out at DDXP and that this episode was recorded before that. So you can find more current information at the forum and the upcoming interviews from DDXP by Geoffrey D. Winn.

And check out the Tome's Amazon Store to finish up your 3e collection or pre-order your 4e books...or both! The show gets a cut of the profit and that helps me pay the bills.

The Tome Ep 47: PH2

profile.jpgThe Players Handbook 2 is a book full of alternatives for players to use to make their characters more interesting. This review was done by Will. I don't expect there to be a ton more 3.5 book reviews after this, so enjoy it while you've got it.

This is another episode where the intro/outro audio might sound a bit different than usual. There will be one more episode with that issue and from there out all should be good.

Coming up there is a series of 4e chats between me and Chris Engler as well as more interviews and reports from DDXP with Geoffrey D. Winn. So keep an eye out for that.

Don't forget to check out the Tome's Amazon store, visit the forum that we share with Gamer's Haven and Fistfull of Comics and Games, and swing by the website in general.

This episode's promo is from Role-Playing Public Radio.

Creator of D&D Dies

For those who have not heard, Gary Gygax, co-creator of the game that we all know and love, died this morning. He wasn't terribly old although I understand he had had is share of health issues.

He gave us Dungeons and Dragons and without that move the world that we live in would be a different place. No 1e, 2e, 3e, or 4e. No video game rpgs. No table top rpgs. My guess is that none of us here would have ever played an role-playing game in our lives. Likely there would be very little in the world of fantasy in pop culture without the creation of D&D those decades ago. Love him or hate him, he has impacted all our lives for the better and I would like to thank him for it .

R.I.P. Gary Gygax, keep rolling 20s.

TSP: Blood of the Gorgon 1 of 4

profile.jpgThis is the first of a new series called "The Tome Show Presents". In this TSP I will be featuring a short series of shows around one theme or product.

In this first appearance I am presenting Blood of the Gorgon, the 5th Open Design project that I talked about during my interview with Nicolas Logue.

After talking to Nicolas and Wolfgang Baur before I still had a hard time getting my head wrapped around what the experience of being a Patron of the Open Design projects was like. So I twisted a few arms and now I get to bring you the experience as well as provide current Patrons a bit of an insight as to what is going on with the project and another channel of communication between them and the author.

This is part 1 of 4 of the Tome Show Presents: Blood of the Gorgon and I hope you enjoy. You can, email me at or visit the website at

The Tome Ep 46: Perkins/Girard

profile.jpgGeoffrey D. Winn got some great interviews at D&D Experience bringing you all the scoops about 4th edition and more. This is the first of the series of interviews, this one with Sara Girard and Chris Perkins.

I'm not going to leave much in the show notes so I can get this out quickly. But you know the routines from all the other episodes.

In the next several episodes you'll be hearing more chatter between me and Chris Engler, mixed with more DDXP interviews, as well as regular review episodes. Plus a new side series for the Tome which will also probably come out this weekend.
