Review: Dragon Age RPG Set 2 (pdf)

Recently, Green Ronin has released set 2 of their Dragon Age RPG, available for preorder or, if you’re impatient like me, in .pdf format (which, if you pre-order the dead tree version, you can get the .pdf for a nominal additional cost). So, what do you get? Two 80-page books, one of the players and one for the game master, …

Spring is here… Can’t you smell the kobold? The Kobold Quarterly that is!

After such a long and convoluted title, I guess you know it’s time to look at the new issue of Kobold Quarterly, in this case issued 17, the spring issue. Both Michael and I have previously blogged about Kobold Quarterly ( here and here for two instances) and if you are a regular reader you know we both are fans of Open Design products. …

Dragon Age Set 2 is out. My First Impressions

Like so many I scooped up Set 2 from Green Ronin and I spent much of last night reading through it. I’m proud to announce that it is well worth the wait. I did take the chance to go over the play test documents released a while ago and and thought a lot about whether

Some Dragon Age One Shot Pre-Gen Characters

I ran a little Dragon Age one shot a couple of weeks ago and I figured what the heck, I really should post the the pre-gens too. I did nine characters. I used the 10 point buy plus some of the backgrounds from the Set 2 play test documents. I also went ahead and spent

Using Aspects in the Dragon Age RPG

It’s no real secret that I really like FATE and am a big fan of Dragon Age. Mike over at Wrath of Zombie did a little post on this subject a while ago and then I ended up in little Twitter discussion with the guys over at Dragon Age Oracle. And once again this got

Beyond Ferelden

Back in December 2009 I professed my love for the Dragon Age RPG by Green Ronin . As someone who enjoyed (and still enjoys) the Dragon Age: Origins computer game it was no question whether I picked up that game or not. And the Dragon Age RPG definitely lived up to my expectations, it actually surpassed them. It’s a great game for new players to pick up and play because …

From the Kobold’s Lair

Tweet Recently I have posted about Open Design’s latest patronage project: Midgard ! And while pondering if I should become patron myself, the plan to do an interview with the three designers formed in my head. Alas Brandon Hodge and Jeff Grubb couldn’t make it because of some difficult deadlines, but Wolfgang Baur made some time for answering a few questions for us. Thanks again…

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…

Dragon Age: Set 2 in Open Beta

Tweet It seems Paizo started a new trend with allowing the gamer community to beta test their products openly. Now Green Ronin has jumped the bandwagon and released an open playtest document for their upcoming 2nd Dragon Age boxed set. From what I’ve seen so far, fans of the Dragon Age RPG will be in for a treat. Set 2 will contain…

Review: Kobold Quarterly Issue 14

Currently I play none of the games which are regularly covered by Kobold Quarterly , but so far I’ve enjoyed reading every issue I got my hands on. Aside from a lot of material for games like D&D 4th Edition, Pathfinder or even Dragon Age, a large portion of the magazine contains articles that apply to any fantasy game. And in most …
