By now you should known I’m partial to hobbits. Between my ramblings on the podcast and my exposition on here, it’s clear that I am a big fan of the halflings. They’re clever, funny, quaint, and idealistic. As such I find I am also drawn to the men of Bree. Really they’re just tall hobbits: […]


Orcs ought to be regarded with a great deal more mystique and intrigue than we grant them. To many of us Orcs and Goblins are strictly sword-fodder, small black and green people of pure evil there to be destroyed with little thought put to the task.

A real regret, though, was not playing more LOTR. As you can imagine, a Con […]

This might put them somewhere in the same family as […]
