Download Dungeon Magazine

To go along with my two previous posts about Downloading Dragon Magazine and Downloading Dragon Magazine – Part #2, here’s a list of Dungeon Magazine to download.  These aren’t mine and I didn’t gather them.  I just found them.

The list is missing some issues. I’ll come back and post them later on when I find them.

Ninja Burger

ninjaburger.jpgA quick plug for Ninja Burger as well as the Charlotte Transit category here on the blog since Google’s spiders can’t see it too well.  The video, found after the break, got a chuckle out of me as well.

Rumor has it that you can grab the Ninja Burger RPG core rulebook (the older first edition, not he newer second edition I’m afraid.) from here.

Looking back at January

Breakfast was cool.  Had eggs, bacon, and biscuits.  I think I was the only non-church person there so i had to introduce myself a number of times but I didn’t mind.  I walk by the church twice every day when I head over to UNCC.  Didn’t get any pictures as my batteries died with the other breakfast this morning under the bridge.

I finally got a chance to look over the most read posts for January.  I probably should do some sort of Top Post widget in the sidebar. (edit: Done now.)

New Webcomic – Order of the Stick

Order of the Stick

Order of the Stick

OK, this one has been around for quite some time. I’ve been reading Order of the Stick and I’ve been enjoying it. The comic is drawn and authored in a deliberate stick figure style by Rich Burlew. It’s based on fantasy RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons as well as today’s D20 system. The comic goes back to 2003 so you;ve got a bit of reading to get up to date.

And I’ve already gone ahead and added to the links page. You can look at the other webcomics that I read there.

New Webcomic – Nodwick

 

Nodwick

Nodwick

Another new webcomic added to the link list.  We have added in Norwick.  It’s Dungeons and Dragons based, having appeared for eons in the old Dragon Magazine that’s now currently changing formats.
New comics appear to hit once a week.  Not sure of the day and I’m
too tired to go digging around the website. (Plus the designer appears
to like opening link in new windows.  I hate it when sites are
designed like that.)

The comic is about a simple henchman who travels with three characters
but runs into all sorts of trouble, normally because of the actions of
the characters.

There’s a healthy backlist of comics so it’ll take you a while to read
through them all.  Not many that connect together in an arc so you
can poke around in there.  Give it a read today. 🙂
