It’s impossible not to reach for puns when a game’s titled Near & Far and its Kickstarter has already raised its funding goal eleven times over (and only as of writing). Clearly, what might’ve seemed far away when the creators initiated the campaign proved to be much nearer…

I use a lot of gamer slang but I recently realized that some of my players have no idea what these words mean, so here’s a guide to different types of characters!
Tank: A character who can afford to take a ton of damage and is really hard to kill. Typically can be found front and center in any combat situation. Also called a Meatshield.
Glass Cannon: A character who can deal a ton of damage all at once, but doesn’t have a lot of hitpoints. They are fragile, but dangerous.
Squishie: Any character who should avoid melee fighting without backup because they’re just not very tough. Most non warriors or healers are squishies.
Skill Monkey: Any character who is really good at a lot of different things outside of combat situations. Often have eclectic skill sets.
Book Jockey: Any character with a lot of “knowledge” skills, see also Scholar and Neeeeeerd.
Face: A face character is good at the “talking” skills, like Diplomacy and Bluff. They often gravitate towards leadership positions within the party as they’re the best at dealing with NPCs and convincing others to go along with their decisions.
Buffer: Someone who makes their allies more effective. Typically thought of as weak, but can easily turn the tide in combat situations. Also called Support characters.
Zoo Keeper: Any character who is outnumbered by their own animal companions/mounts/familiars/pets/summons.
Please note that any given character could be multiple of these or even none at all!
Seeing as how today is being celebrated as D&D’s birthday, I figured this would be the best day to post these! Got these books with my Original Collector’s Edition D&D box set. It has the three core rule books, but also a couple re-releases from the early 2000’s. Hope you enjoy these pictures! If you’d like to see more pictures of what’s inside these books, leave something in my ASK box saying which ones!
Basic rules for the game: one player is Batman, a second player controls 20 different Batman villains for the domain of Arkham City. You’ll use custom dice included with the game and rely on over 80 different game cards. The set will cost you $45. Learn more about the game here!
These are the kind of dice I would be proud to be buried with. I already own the set in plastic, but in metal.. Dayum. The only downside is that with shipping they’re about $60 on Amazon and $55 through Q-Workshop’s website. Now all I need to do is justify buying them to myself.
