And then she said, “Wait, Professor Jones can help us with this one!”

Tweet Have you said that in a game? For the longest time that was taboo in my games, but these days I’m willing to consider it. I’m not talking about Professor Jones per se, but famous characters from novels, movies or TV in general appearing in my games. I’ve talked about names in games before but this time around I’m not talking about name…

Traveller RPG Week Day Three: Starships

One of the most awesome things about Classic Traveller (and derivatives) is that the in-game values and role-playing data is present in the game itself . Your character’s stats – his Universal Personality Profile or UPP – can be looked up by your character in the game on any convenient info-terminal. If your crew is looking for a new Engineer (the last one having been accidentally…

Venture Captain: An Online Pathfinder Character Generator

What you haven’t heard about this yet? The folks over at Mad Brew Labs put together Venture Captain, a pretty awesome character generator for Pathfinder. Bonus it spits out a nice clean PDF of character sheet for you. The interface is pretty easy and intuitive. I really like it. Let’s face it sometimes the number

Geekpaper No. 1

Desktop wallpapers are constantly changed, it is a known fact. Spicing our desktop may inspire us or maybe we just want to have our desktops fresh. I don’t know about you, but when I’m choosing desktop wallpaper, it can take a good while. So I finally managed to buy a tablet to support my designing/drawing

Waimea Wipeout

Waimea Wipeout from sggc Waimea Original Works is a simple push-your-luck dice game with a surfing theme, several complicated result tables, and a superfluous board. The score track counts tenths of points, but wraps around at 0.7 points, so the first row is up to 1.7, then to 2.4, and so on. You roll to catch a wave, roll for points on the wave, …

Freeport: Winds of Change – Session 2

As promised, I’m writing again to give you guys an update on my ongoing Pathfinder Freeport game. The first session was a big departure from your usual Pathfinder game in that we didn’t really use Pathfinder at all. The second session proceeded in a much more normal fashion. The second session picked up with the group just having docked in Freeport. I wanted to get…

Play(er) Review: Dragon Age RPG

I have a tendency to spend a lot of time “behind the screen”.  I get the new games, I spend far too much of my free time reading them, and I come up with stories to play and run at the game table.  In the reviews I’ve done for this site, I have been opposite parties of intrepid adventurers, time travelers, and…

STAR WARS license speculation

Tweet When Wizards of the Coast revealed that they won’t be renewing the STAR WARS license a lot of fans of their SW RPG and miniatures line were quite disappointed. Especially the latest edition of their Star Wars RPG, the Saga Edition was quite popular among fans. Some days ago Mongoose’s Matthew Sprange revealed that his company tried to get…

Traveller RPG Week Day Two: Character Generation

It’s hard to believe that Classic Traveller is over thirty years old. As a rules system it was so far ahead of its time that it is still ahead of its time, now. Fitting for a science-fiction role-playing game, I guess. The ahead-of-its-timedness begins with Character Generation, which is the topic of today’s post. But you …

Word of the Week: MACHINATE

Machinate is to plan, contrive or devise a scheme or plot. All good games usually have an underlying plot that links to future adventures. Most games I have been in have a plot that our party is entirely unaware of, there are clues, but it’s usually too late to do much about them except say

Aspects For Pathfinder: The Beta Version

We’ll be starting Paizo’s Kingmaker adventure path after the New Year and the GM has decided to add Aspects from FATE to see what happens. As you’ve probably already noticed I’m just like so many people and have grown to really love FATE since the Dresden Files RPG has hit the shelves and personally I

Gaming in the Digital Age: The D&D Virtual Tabletop Beta

I recently received an invite to the official Dungeons & Dragons Virtual Tabletop beta. So, what did I think about it? Quite frankly, I had given up hope that this project was ever going to see the light of day, so when it was announced that they were going ahead with it in the same week that it was announced that Duke Nukem Forever …
