Jenneral Thoughts

In the store, I get asked for my opinion a lot, which is good because I’m an opinionated person!

“What’s your favourite board game?”

“What do you think of the new Magic set?”

“Which D&D setting is the most interesting for new players?”

Your questions will now be answered…at least from my point of view! Here I’ll be posting opinion pieces on games and products we carry and support in the hopes of stirring thoughts and igniting interesting conversations with all of you. (These opinions are just that - personal opinions. Please don’t take any information here as fact.)

Dungeon Master Resources

These articles were designed as workshops presented at the Owen Sound Mini Comicon in May 2018 and in a series of 9 evening sessions in the summer of 2018. They are designed to provide guidance, suggestion and insight into how another DM would run a campaign. DMing is a very personal experience. This represents how I choose to run my games; you may choose to do things very differently. All PDFs are FREE to download.


This segment teaches players with no experience what they need to begin playing, how to form a character concept and working together with your group and DM. Download the PDF here. Download a 5e Character Sheet here.
