Through Gamer Goggles is a new news and media blog for gamers. We focus on blending or balancing our real lives with our games. This has lead us to product reviews, unboxings, and how to videos. We also write articles on game strategies, better role playing, and just plain old guessing about the industry. We aren’t going to stop their, we have plans for RL too like food.

This week

  • D&D 5th ed
  • RPG theatre
  • Warmachine Colossals
  • Paizo Hires a new employee

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

WotC has announced 5th ed.

You can read about some of our thoughts and concerns in the links below. The articles also contain the links to the articles in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal.

Ryan’s Response to 5th ed

Matt’s response to 5th ed

Basically, they are attempting to make a melting pot of D&D. The hope is they will grab the attention of the early players. The players from 20 and 30 years ago, that are still playing. And return them to a universal system. I like the idea, but I believe in the end will fail because there is no real reason for that player to change systems. 5th ed will have to be so unique and so groundbreaking that it makes everything obsolete in the role playing world. I just don’t think a game can be made to do that.

RPG Theater

Next month in conjunction with INFM (indieNation.fm) we will be starting another rpg campaign. This campaign will be prerecorded and aired weekly on IndieNation. We will be using the Pathfinder game system. We have already started a campaign on the Through Gamer Goggles Blog using the Silvervine Games System. Silverine is unique in a few ways, and we don’t have a lot of time to go into details, but what I want to mention is that it is a local game. The creators all live in Ohio, from Cleveland down into Uniontown. If you want to learn more about Silvervine check these links out or leave us a comment.

Colossals

I can’t wait to get my hands on these. They look to be about 10 to 12 inches tall. They sit on a 120mm base (CD). They are FA 2. They will run 18 to 25 points (leaked at Temple Con) They are expected to arrive in Summer 2012.

I am hoping this encourages larger games. Will they be broken in a standard game?

Press Release

Paizo Adds Adam Daigle to Game Staff

Popular freelance designer to become Pathfinder Adventure Path Developer

February 27, 2012 (REDMOND, Wash.) – Paizo Publishing announces the addition of popular freelancer Adam Daigle to its in-house game design and development staff, effective March 15. Daigle will work with Pathfinder Creative Director James Jacobs and Developer Rob McCreary on Paizo’s popular monthly Pathfinder Adventure Path campaign supplements, as well as other projects.

As a freelancer, I’ve loved working with this crew in helping to build the world of Golarion and Pathfinder Roleplaying game, but that pesky day job kept getting in the way of giving more,” said Daigle. “I’m thrilled to be able to accept this position to give my full attention to this fantastic game and its community. This personal life transition was partially facilitated by the sage words of Hunter S. Thompson, ‘When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.’”

I’ve worked with Adam for years already—he’s been a contributor to numerous Paizo products as a freelancer, from smaller works like Pathfinder Bestiary monsters to larger projects like Lost Kingdoms or big Adventure Path articles,” said Paizo Creative Director James Jacobs. “The imagination, skill, and just plain-old professionalism Adam brings to each of his assignments would in and of itself have ensured him a constant role in Pathfinder products to come, but now that he’s joining Paizo as a full-time developer, you’ll see his handiwork in every product we produce—particularly in the Adventure Paths, where his assistance and input will be most welcome indeed!”

The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is a fully supported tabletop RPG, with regularly released adventure modules, sourcebooks on the fantastic world of Golarion, and complete campaigns in the form of Pathfinder Adventure Paths like Skull & Shackles and The Rise of the Runelords. The Pathfinder RPG is also compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world’s oldest roleplaying game.
