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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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
A return to one of my favorite web series. A perfect thing for the final Web Clip Wednesday for 2010. Happy New Year everyone.
Tis the season to be exploited by the big toy conglomerates. Happy Whatever Holiday You Want To Celebrate On Or Around The End Of December.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
