Hey, guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University and by my name, you can probably tell that I kind of like comic books. I review a lot, and one of my current favorites is one that may appeal to every Nerdarchist. The comic in question is IDW’s “Dungeons and Dragons – Frost Giant’s Fury.” The […]
Hey, guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University and I guess I’m up next to talk about my character for the Open Legend RPG game on Fridays at noon Eastern on the Nerdarchy YouTube channel. I think that, by now, it’s pretty obvious that I have an affinity for comic books, so I took my […]
Hey, guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University here and I’m going to say a few pretentious things here. I’m talking about dating advice for nerds. When I was in school I was a pretty popular guy. I was tall, went to the weight room after school daily, I was on the track and field […]
Hey guys, Professor Bill from Comic Book University, and I’m going to talk (write) about the game I’m running for Nerdarchy on Thursdays. Marvel Superheroes Role Playing Game is an old love for many of us, but that’s not the crux of what I want to talk about. Rather, I want to discuss the audience […]
On Last Monday’s “Nerdarchy: Live Chat,” the chat itself talked for more than a half hour about different kinds of blind characters. I figured I’d expand on the lore a bit more.
“ADVENTURERS NEEDED!” Have your player characters ever seen the above sign? Sitting in a tavern, pinned to the prison billboard, on the way into a new town; adventurers have typically seen the “Help Wanted” sign indicating the beginning of an adventure or quest. How do the monsters post their bills? I had this idea for […]
Hey, guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University, and what kind of professor of comics would I be if I didn’t see Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 (GotGv2)? Here are my thoughts.
Hey guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University here, and I really want to thank everyone who commented and contributed to my last two articles. That says a lot about your love for the Open Legend content and the campaign. This week I just want to chillax a little and talk about Dune, my hands […]
Hey guys, Professor Bill here from Comic Book University, and two things happened on last Friday’s live chat with Nerdarchy. First off, I was promoted. Dave invited me to be a fill-in player for the “Open Legend” game we’ll start playing this Friday (weekly – noon EST) and I said, sure.
Hey, guys, Professor Bill here, and I’m playing in the Nerdarchy “Open Legend” game on Friday’s at noon Eastern Standard Time. Actually, I’m the auxiliary player, so when someone else can’t make the game, then I show up last minute. Nonetheless, I want my character to be on point and I figured I’d share my […]
Have you ever played a possessed character? How about a Malkavian from World of Darkness? I love the crazy character, the haunted ones; they have so much to offer. Now I think most Vampire: The Masquerade players and GMs know that the Malkavians aren’t necessarily crazy, that in fact they are speaking to someone through […]
I’m not a huge fan of the murder hobo; I don’t know too many people who are. Every so often you have the option to really stick it to the murder hobo by saying the peasant he just killed was the arch priest of the Beggar God. That’s one of my personal favorites. And the […]
Do you have a rogue in your ranks? Lots of players chose the rogue because they want that key moment, that time to shine. The general combat classes always get that. The fighter with swinging swords and chopping battle axe, the monk hitting twenty times per round, the barbarian raging through a horde of orcs. […]
Have you ever read the Drizzt Do’Urden books? Who hasn’t, right? Do you remember Pasha Pook? He was a smarmy guy who double-dealt among everyone, even his own employees. I mean, who double deals Artemis Entreri? And he was a punk.
You know what I don’t like about superhero movies? The “big bad” is always getting whacked. I mean, how do you kill Doctor Doom or the Red Skull? The cool thing is that, just like in the comics, they can always come back.
