Ryan Dancey: You made me think scary thoughts

Well if you’ve been paying the least bit of attention to the RPG scene, you’ve probably heard that Ryan Dancey has made another gloomy prediction for the RPG industry. Basically, the chances for D&D remaining a table top game are pretty much dead in the water. Despite the chant of “So goes WOTC so goes

Web Clip Wednesday: Swords! We don’t need no stinkin’ swords

Really, how much crap does a character need to lug around just in case you might need it for a boss fight later on. But then you really can’t beat the awesomeness of a magical smashing board.

Our Spelljammer Pathfinder Campaign: When Good Dice Go Bad

I decided throw down some notes on our current games. Think of these as sort session summaries but only the good and interesting parts. This campaign has been going on for a while so I’ll take this little bit to introduce the characters. We have a Kender Bard, a Goblin Druid, a Warforged Crusader, a

Web Clip Wednesday: Wonder Woman is a bitch

We all know superheroes have a really good marketing team. So here’s why you don’t want to go on a date with Wonder Woman. And for you Psych fans, I hardly recognized Jules as a brunette. A Date with Diana from Maggie Lawson

Ultra Gritty Mercenaries for Savage Worlds

A couple of weeks ago, I was watching The Expendables and I thought back to an old game we used to play called Commando by SPI that was house ruled into sort of an RPG. It was a lot like the movies Uncommon Valor, Dogs of War and The Wild Geese. It was fast, fun

Some Advice for New Writers: Don’t Write

Don’t even think that I’m sort of expert. I’m just like so many of you out there. A budding writer chomping at the bit to get something published. But as I sit here getting geared up for a new year with new goals, I have to say to myself, “What is the most important thing

Bestiary 2: A Very Quick & Dirty Review

This was really meant to be a much longer review but heck real life and other dead lines just got in the way but here’s some quick thoughts. I gotta say that it’s pretty damned good. Not quite as good as the Advanced Player’s Guide but still good. A lot monster books are just a

Less Than Heroic

I do love a good comedy gaming web series and here’s one that needs a little help. Less Than Heroic is by the same folks that did Chaotic Good Online. It was pretty damned funny. But they did that entire series out of pocket. This time they’re doing a little fund raising and the clock

Web Clip Wednesday: Roleplayed

Once again, I’m delving back into the past. Let’s face it there’s so much crap on youtube sometimes you can miss some real gems. This one features a really dysfunctional gaming session. Enjoy.

Help Me Make My Kingmaker Character

Our little group is gearing up to start Paizo’s Kingmaker Adventure Path this month. I’ve been throwing around ideas for a character. Normally, this isn’t much of a problem. I’m usually one of the first come up with a character concept and run with it. We will be using Aspects but haven’t seen how the

2011 be prepared to have your ass kicked

There’s going to be a big amount of clearing and growth around here in 2011. I’ll put it bluntly. 2010 pretty much sucked ass. I sat on my lazy butt and a lot of the things I wanted to get done, never got accomplished. So 2011 is the year of getting shit done. I am

My new favorite RPG’s for 2010

The year is almost over and it’s that time of year to reflect back on the neat stuff from over the past year. So here it is my own little list of the my favorite RPG’s for 2010. Topping the list, of course, is the Dresden Files RPG. I am a little biased. I’m a

Jennifer the Sound Girl: A DFRPG NPC

Some time next year, I plan running a Dresden Files campaign. There’s not a lot prep for the game master until city and character creation are done but that’s not going to stop from experimenting and bouncing ideas around. I’ve already thrown the pitch and the plan is use the city I created for an

Web Clip Wednesday: Show Me How You Pee

I’m a big fan of Mediocre Films and Greg Benson ever since I discovered Retarded Policeman and this little clip continues the comic genius.

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

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

Lost Girl Some Thoughts

If you like urban fantasy type stuff then Lost Girl just might be up your alley. I really hesitate to call this a review. he problem is that it is well Canadian and despite being in the age of instant communications over the internet darned hard to find legally south of the border. So search
