Although it’s a big internet out there, the Tabletop digital universe is pretty small and spread out. In Content We Liked, we take a look at the articles, videos, podcasts, and products that caught our eyes or were noteworthy during the prior week you might have missed.
On the Internet at Large
A rare Tumblr submission this week, with an absolutely rockin’ Kustom Kill-Rig for the Goff Rokker.
Feels like an age since in-action weapon SFX were the flavour of the month, but this absolutely maximum edge Nightlord Whirlwind makes a fantastic argument for bringing them back.

Holy crap. What can you say at this point? Draconian Minis are going to have to invest in an Electron Microscope at this rate.

Youtube’s favourite Lawyer breaks down the complicated copyright case and how it’s gonna affect the world of 3rd Party D&D publishers if it goes forwards.
