And then there were none. And then there were three. This season, Being Human showrunner Toby Whithouse pushed his series’ world-building to the limit, wrapping it around both the fate of humanity and one little girl. As it turns out, this approach was more than a swan song – it was the opening strains of […]

Instead of reshuffling the deck, Being Human showrunner Toby Whithouse apparently decided to buy a whole new set of cards. SPOILERS AHEAD We knew going in, of course, that the fourth season would build on George the werewolf’s promise that the vampire Wyndham and the Old Ones would “have a fight” on their hands.” […]

Player’s Handbook 2 introduced the Primal power source, so just to keep with the theme of one new power source per book the Player’s Handbook 3 introduces Psionics. Psionics have a legion of fans out there so a lot of people have been clamoring for this book. I’ve actually found Psionics pretty annoying in the past, but this time around I actually like it. They feel more Jedi-like and less like an overpowered version of the normal magic system. Beyond Psionics, this book also introduces Skill powers and Hybrid Classes. Where the Player’s Handbook 2 pretty much fleshed out all of the original classes from 3rd Edition’s PHB, this book finally gives us the Monk while also giving us some of the most revolutionary material we’ll probably get all year.
