When a hero begins his or her adventure through the fantastic but dangerous world of video games, he or she is not alone. Adventure Rules sit in the hero’s bag, providing guidance and comfort in a harsh world full of puzzles and monsters.
Life is your adventure, and this blog is the companion designed to ease your journey. Whether you’re looking for advice about video or tabletop games, news about upcoming releases, reviews of content I’ve enjoyed, or stories to take your mind off of the trials of the road, Adventure Rules has everything you need to make your journey successful. Be sure to follow so you never miss a moment of Adventure Rules!
Currently, Adventure Rules posts at 9 AM EST on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. Wednesday’s post is generally a “Tabletop Tuesday” segment, so that’s the best day to check in for RPG content. If you have any questions about existing content, upcoming content, or the blog in general, you can reach me on social media by heading to one of the pages linked at the bottom of the page.
Curious about the different categories on the page’s sidebar? Here’s a brief explanation of each one!
A CASUAL STROLL: The name of this segment is a play on the term “walkthrough.” Posts in this category are intended to be a “stroll-through,” providing hints and tips but not necessarily delving into the same level of detail that a full-fledged guide might.
ADVENTURE RULES REVIEWS: Whenever I review content, that review goes into this category. My approach to reviews has changed over the course of time – you might see with older reviews that my rating system was a lot more subjective. Still, as long as you focus on the text of the review, you’ll always get a strong idea of how I feel about the game!
ADVENTURE RULES UPDATE: This should be straightforward, right? Anytime I post an update about upcoming content, metrics, etc, it’ll go into this category. If you want to make sure you are as up-to-date as possible about the blog, it’s probably a good idea to check out the most recent post in this category.
BLOGGER BLITZ: A tournament where multiple bloggers choose characters to sponsor and face off! Judged by fellow bloggers as well, this competition is a massive community event and you can find all the battles and their results in this category.
BREATH OF THE WILD GUIDES: These are detailed guides for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Many of the guides in this category are works in progress that will be updated as I experience more and more of the game.
CHARMING AND OPEN: Charming and Open is a special event here on Adventure Rules where I answer questions from adventurers and then pose a question in return. This category will hold not only the masterposts for any and all Charming and Open events, but also my posts that result from the events.
FIRE EMBLEM FATES GUIDES: These are detailed guides for all three versions of Fire Emblem Fates. Most focus on characters but some focus on game mechanics as well. If you’re looking for guidance with that game, look no further than this category!
MARIO + RABBIDS GUIDES: In-depth guides to help you through your journey in the Rabbid-infested Mushroom Kingdom! Most focus on characters and their uses to help you build the ideal team for each scenario.
POKEMON OMEGA RUBY NUZLOCKE: This is a walkthrough of sorts telling the tale of my Pokemon Omega Ruby Restartlocke challenge. If you’re interested in learning about the strategies that I use in order to succeed (hopefully) at this sort of Nuzlocke challenge, this is the walkthrough for you!
SMASH FIVE: With the fifth installment in the Super Smash Bros series on the horizon, this segment focuses on top 5 lists for various aspects of the upcoming game such as new characters, stages, items, and game modes. If you want to talk about Smash, this is the place to be!
TABLETOP TUESDAY: A weekly segment featuring content about tabletop games such as board games, card games, or pen-and-paper role playing games (mostly the last one).
UNCATEGORIZED: Every post I post falls into this category. But doesn’t falling into this category actually mean that every post IS categorized? Ah well. This is exactly the same as just going down through the Home page but it would be too much of a pain for me to go back and remove the “uncategorized” tag from everything, so it’s here to stay.
