End of the Year Recap

It’s that time, the end of the year.  Time for a recap and some thoughts about gaming in 2010. 2010 was an enlightening year for me, gaming-wise.  While my group has remained mostly stable since early on in the year, I have come to a few realizations. Adieu, World of Darkness Early on in the year, we hopped around a bit system-wise before…

What about In the Company of Minotaurs? A review…

Tweet “I know they accuse me of arrogance, and perhaps misanthropy, and perhaps of madness. Such accusations (for which I shall exact punishment in due time) are derisory” The House of Asterion (tranlsation), by Jorge Luis Borges I love minotaurs, ever since first hearing the classic story , but I blame my love for them in role playing games on Dragonlance . The minotaurs of Krynn inspired me as a teenaged…

Freeport: Winds of Change – Session 3

First of all, give this session a listen ! In some ways, this was what I felt to be the first real session of the campaign. If you listen to the first two sessions of this game back-to-back, I think you’ll find that they feel like one session split into two parts. That’s true in a lot of ways. Both sessions added together make up the…

The Pathfinder Role Playing Game Reference Document UPDATE!

Tweet My love for Pathfinder is well known around these parts. It is my poison of choice for fantasy gaming and the rule system I use for my homebrew campaign. Over the last few years I have begun to use technology more and more to run my games and currently I GM with my laptop at the table. One of the most useful tools I have for this…

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…

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

Freeport: Winds of Change – Session 1

First things first, here’s a link to the audio . As I mentioned in my Prelude post , that we had our first session of Winds of Change recently and I think it went pretty well. When I start a new campaign, I like to take things slowly. My group is made up of folks whose first priority in life is not gaming (shocking, I…

Quick Review: Wizard Character Folio for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Look, we all know that there are rules in life.  Rules that we have to follow.  Rules that make things easier for all of us.  The problem is, when you have a 540 page rule book, some of those rules get lost. The Wizard Character Folio helps with this – putting everything you need, from your base character sheet through all of your wizardly schools …

Hit me Magus one more time! (With apologies to Ms. Spears…)

Tweet Following the round 2 playtest for the Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Magic supplement, a few days ago Paizo released round 3, a revised version of the Magus class they had released in round 1 . It’s an 8 page (one more than the previous version) revision of the class. I always find the process of playtesting interesting and have come to enjoy the rules discussion on this and other aspects …

Roll vs Boredom: Mentally Challenged

Roll vs Boredom is an ongoing project to fight off boredom from behind the game master’s screen.  My challenge to myself, to create one signature mechanic for every “adventure” I run in my current campaign, whether that be one night of play or a whole month to complete.   In the first article of this series, I discuss the…

Words of Power, part two of the Ultimate magic playtest…

Tweet I’ve been a little quiet these past few days, real life, a bad cold and all that, but the blog must go on! This came out a couple of days ago and I somehow missed it. Paizo released part 2 of their Ultimate Magic playtest for the Pathfinder RPG , Words of Power . It’s a nifty little alternate spellcasting system. I just gave it a read over and it is certainly…

Short Changed…again

A couple of weeks ago I had an unusual experience in a Pathfinder game… The DM started off our gaming session by telling us that he should have been giving us more treasure throughout our adventures and he wanted to “reward” us by having the God of Good Fortune and Winning Lotto Tickets grant us extra treasure to bring us up to what we should have for …

Then it’s off to the layout artists and up on to DriveThruRPG (and over to those of you who are getting the PDFs of course)! I’ve included an exclusive preview of our Mirkmoot artist Tim Reardon’s work in here. He is really an amazing…

What about Advanced Feats: The Summoner’s Circle? A review…

Tweet On earlier posts I have reviewed the two previous installments of the Advanced Feats series by Siegfried Trent, Secrets of the Alchemist and The Witch’s Brew , published by Open Design . This third outing, The Summoner’s Circle , focused on another classe introduced in the Pathfinder RPG Advanced Players Guide , doesn’t disappoint. On the contrary I would say that with every installment the series…
