It’s no fluke that an enormous and continually-growing slate of streaming game play has emerged alongside 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. When Greg Tito joined Wizards of the Coast’s marketing team a couple of years ago as communication manager, adding more streaming programming to their schedule was one of his goals to expand the audience […]
Nerdarchist Dave got three special guests for the cost of one when he welcomed Satine Phoenix to the Nerdarchy live chat. Hanging out on her birthday from her home/studio in sunny Los Angeles, Phoenix shared her morning chatting live and answering questions. Nerd culture colleagues Ruty Rutenberg and Ivan van Norman hung out in the […]

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.
Like a lot of kids who grew up in the 1970s, I watched a lot of Star Trek. I’m talking the original series here. This was when the notion of a Star Trek movie was just a dream, and the very idea of another television show (let alone a half dozen) was beyond imagination. But […]
Sliders was an epic science fiction television series that ran for five seasons between 1995 and 2000. Sliders was the story of four intrepid adventurers who used a wormhole vortex to “slide” between different Parallel Universes. The adventurers used a slide timer (a portable device) to be aware of when they could slide to another […]
Stranger Things, for those of you who have been living under a rock, is a Netflix original series and a charming throwback to the sci-fi/horror stylings of the ’80s with the special effects capabilities of the modern day. If you haven’t already seen it, you are honestly missing out. This show is phenomenal. It captures […]

I am too young to have seen the original Planet of the Apes series. However, I was blown away by the dramatic impact of the 2011 reboot of the series through Rise of the Planet of the Apes. 20th Century Fox delivered a fantastic sequel with the 2014 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. […]
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.
Recently, I was watching Satine Phoenix‘s GM Tips on Alpha about playing with kids at the table. It’s a really useful video, and it made me consider a lot of things I never would’ve otherwise. Most importantly is how to adopt any given tabletop roleplaying game to suit the needs of a group. In the video, […]
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 […]

Moving closer to home this week, I’m taking a look at a live streaming RPG show that has grown to become one of my favorites to watch. The Scarlet Sisterhood of Steel & Sorcery is streaming live every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. EST on Nerdarchy’s YouTube channel. Each week, DM Nerdarchist Dave hosts Staff Writers Megan […]

D&D is hiding in shadows and moving silently this week while the Fantasy Adventure Game Engine sets the stage for Geek & Sundry’s TitansGrave: The Ashes of Valkana. There is a huge variety of live streamed and recorded RPG play […]
