About the Blog

The Miniature Mage is a blog about tabletop (pen and paper style) role-playing games. Perhaps predictably, the Mage’s particular focus is on the 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons. You can expect to find blog articles about playing D&D 5E, as well as basic TTRPG design theory (with a dollop of mathematical analysis) and (eventually) the occasional illustration.

About the Author

I first encountered Dungeons & Dragons in my early twenties. As I recall, I played for a grand total of 15 minutes before my character jumped out of a third storey window, failed a check to cast Feather Fall, and plummeted to his death. Twenty years later, I encountered D&D’s Fifth Edition and began playing in earnest. My name is Peter Sawatzky and the Miniature Mage is my rather analytical billet-doux to this silly hobby.
