The Dogs of War

When I first considered what to write for the Classics Return blog carnival my first idea was to write up themes based on the Planescape Factions, then right as I was about to start the content for this month’s Dragon was announced including an article that would present themes for the Planescape Factions.

Announcing the “Classics Return” Blog Carnival

I have a way of dropping myself into the deep end of D&D projects, from the UK D&D Tweetups, to the Island of Dread fan gazetteer i’m working on.
