2010 Year in Review

Happy New Year!  This has been an absolutely amazing year for me.  It’s been a year of transformations both mental and physical.  There have been a number of very distinct visible changes in my life this year.  Most of which are centered around the quality of my life.  I’m getting healthier and going out socializing […]

Savaged Country

Last night was our biweekly Zombie Run game.  It was perhaps one of the most fun sessions we have had yet.  I’m going to try to be real careful not to reveal any spoilers for anyone wanting to play Zombie Run. As I previously mentioned, this gaming group consists of a variety of levels of experience.  For half […]

Zombie Run First Session

I ran my first full featured Savage Worlds game this weekend.  While I’ve run improvised games for one or two players before this was the first time with a scripted plot and a full group.  Specifically I ran a module called Zombie Run for a group of five players who ranged from first time players […]

Upcoming campaign for Hellas

I’m currently in the process of preparing to run a campaign using the Hellas: Worlds of Sun and Stone RPG.  I first learned of Hellas during GameStorm 11 last year.  The authors had a booth and I was lucky enough to sit down and play in a game run by Jerry Grayson. Hellas’s game engine is […]

Happy Halloween JDMA Revival!

Happy Halloween and welcome back to Bidi’s World. Back in 2006 I started a podcast called JD’s Musical Alchemy.  The show has been on hiatus for a couple years now for a few reasons which I won’t get into now.  The show was a musical review of great upcoming and indie bands.  Some of the […]

Hell’s Canyon Motorcycle Rally 2008

June 13th we went down to Baker City to attend the Hell’s Canyon Motorcycle Rally.  We left Friday morning before the birds started singing.  My son and I took the motorcycle while my wife and daughter rode along in a chase car.  There were three other bikes in the group and we put some of […]

Demoing Changeling: the Lost

Last weekend I ran the demo from White Wolf of Changeling: the Lost. This was my first White Wolf game I’ve ever played and a first look at Changeling: the Lost for all of my players. In all fairness the entirety of our experience was based off the demo packet as none of us had […]

My Son’s First Living Arcanis Game

Last Saturday was another Living Arcanis game with what has become my regular gaming group. The group consists mostly of same players I met back in Nerdcon when I first got back into gaming. The module was the first in a series that takes place in Plexus. What made Saturday especially special is my son […]

My First SpyCraft Adventures

At the end of GameStorm 10 I got to talking to one of my buddies I frequently play Arcanis with. Steve told me about a SpyCraft 2.0 campaign he was running that really caught my attention. Using the various expansions available he was running a fantasy campaign. Previous to this every time I spoke to […]

Witch Hunter 101

This weekend I played in my first Witch Hunter game. This was another living campaign setting. It is produced by Paradigm Concepts who also make Living Arcanis. Witch Hunter is very different from any role playing game I’ve played so far. Not only does it take place in a setting that is based on reality […]
