The Reality of the Divine in RPG Settings

“Perhaps some could argue that I am agnostic.” “Agnostic?” “One who does not commit himself to the certain belief in a divine power,” he said. “I know what it means,” I said. “What shocks me is that you think it applies to you. You’ve met more than one divine power. Hell, one of them broke…

Revisiting Star Wars: The Last Jedi

A complete cinematic failure. A betrayal of the character of Luke Skywalker. Feminist, SJW garbage… the worst film of 2017. That’s what I found from making a brief search for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I did find it interesting that The Emoji Movie, another 2017 release, apparently ranks higher than The Last Jedi. I’m the last…

Making the Kessel Run through the Star Wars RPG Universe

Bon Voyage Google+, The Diaspora is Real

The Troublesome Legacy of H.P. Lovecraft

Like most gamers, I got my start with Dungeons & Dragons. However, my favorite RPG is most certainly Call of Cthulhu. As I write this, there is a lot of controversy about numerous allegations that Zak S. abused women he was in relationships with. In the interests of disclosure, I find those allegations to be…

The Little Devil Within — Why I love the horror genre

February is the month of love and here at Rolling Boxcars, we decided to write about a genre we love with guidance from our patrons, horror. Horror is defined in the dictionary as a painful and intense fear, aversion or repugnance. When used as an adjective it’s the feeling of dread or dismay. What about horror…

Finding Myself in Horror Games

February is a time of passion and love between lovers and would-be lovers, but for me, it’s a time enlighten others as to why I love the horror genre. This genre is something that has become near and dear to my heart, but it’s a love that came to me later in life. My childhood was…
