  • Tabletop Crafting

    I’ve created a Google Photos Gallery for my Lost Mine of Phandelver tabletop terrain project. I was going to make a gallery here on the website, but all these pictures already exist on Google and this is just easier. Maybe as things get more finished I’ll put together a project gallery for it. But it’s […]

  • Tabletop Cave

    The work on the Lost Mine of Phandelver pieces continues to move forward. I’ve applied a coat of joint compound to the Cragmaw Hideout cave complex. I started working on some of the cave rubble, adjusted some of the stalagmites, and built a ridge around the pond and stream to hold in the clear epoxy […]

  • A Small Hobby

    I mentioned in passing that I’ve decided to add another hobby to my repertoire. It ties into both the statue customizing/repainting that I was all about a while back and is a part of tabletop gaming that I’ve flirted with in the past but never committed to. I’m talking about 28mm miniature painting. 28mm refers […]

  • Prime Video Finds

    After another evening of watching Poledark with the lovely Lady Ronn, I was scrolling through Amazon Prime Video and came across something that I didn’t know existed. A documentary about the art of Dungeons & Dragons back in the old TSR days. I immediately started watching it, which probably was not appreciated by everyone in […]

  • Canvas Prints, Part II

    Both of my canvas prints arrived this week from Inner Sareth arrived on Thursday. It looks good. Colors are nice. Text is sharp. But… due to the way it’s stretched, the border is wavy and not even around the perimeter of the canvas. If I was going to give you advice about doing something […]

  • Two More Maps

    I’ve put in orders for two more canvas maps, because I want to put them up in my office as inspiration for writing and gaming. And also because I get very into new projects and this one seems pretty easy to finish. Just click to order. The first is the map that began as an […]

  • Listening to Everything

    I just finished listening to Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Dungeons & Dragons by Shelly Mazzanoble. Have you ever wondered about the female point of view at the gaming table? It’s maybe not what you were expecting. Or at least, Shelly, is not what I was expecting. There’s not a lot of […]

  • Listening to Appendix N

    One of my more recent purchases from Audible was worthy of being mentioned here at arohenRPG. Clocking in at 10-hours and 22-minutes, Appendix N: The Literary History of Dungeons & Dragons, written by Jeffro Johnson, narrated by Brandon Porter, and published by Castalia House, is an investigation into the various works of science fiction and […]

    The wedding of my sister-in-law to her handsome groom has come and gone. It was last weekend and I didn’t get around to mentioning it. Congratulations Josh and Kristen, I wish you many very happy years of wedded bliss. And Josh, I wasn’t kidding. That was a pretty swanky gala and I think it’d be […]

  • Hello world!

    Welcome to my blog inside a blog. This is the part of the website that will be dedicated to tabletop role-playing games, pen and paper gaming, or whatever else you want to call it. Mostly it’s a Dungeons & Dragons thing. Old campaigns. New campaigns. Maps and notes and ideas. I think you get the […]

  • Baenrahl is Back, Again

    It’s not a finished site. It may never be. I’m not making any promises about that, but it’s a thing once again. Role-playing Resources While it is most definitely a work in progress, I think it shows its direction fairly clearly. This time around it is neither a Dungeons & Dragons campaign site nor […]
