Palladium’s New Website?

I know a quick hit like this doesn’t make up for me flaking out for these many weeks, but I’ve been hard at work on projects that you’ll enjoy, I promise. Anyway, user DBX over at the Megaversal Bulletin Boards (those are the forums of Palladium Books, if you were not aware) found what appears to be a test run …

Quick Hit: The Latest Complete Characters d20 Character Sheet

I really need a better header image than this Well, boys and girls, this should be it. This is a real character, with real stats for all three levels, with the character sheet as it will be on the final product. I feel like I’m obsessing about this, but it needs to be clear and concise so that everyone can benefit. This latest version has one final change to…

Quick Hit: Meet The d20 Character Sheet

So, we’ll see if this is the FINAL final character sheet, but I believe that it is. That is, of course, unless some of you find flaws with it. It’s pictured below (click on the image for a larger view). What we have here is an example of what will be the final page of every Complete Character for the

Quick Hit: Discarding d20 Stats

So, as I build the new d20 Modern character sheets for my Complete Characters , I’ve decided to exclude a few stats that I have come to view as extraneous, and easily replaced should any particular Game/Dungeon Master decide to add them back in. These are Reputation. I feel like this modifier limits the character creation process, and isn’t really that useful for a character that is …

A Preview Of d20 For Complete Characters

Building a masterpiece takes time I know I’ve been fairly absent, but it’s not all for nothing. Just a quick hit for now, demonstrating some progress on Complete Characters. I even think it’s pretty sexy, as gaming goes. The plan here is for Complete Characters to begin to incorporate stats from one or more OGL gaming systems, most notably d20. My love for D6 will likely bring me to …

Quick Hit: New Stuff, Early Success

Just a quick hit tonight, but it’s a good one! I just posted Complete Characters #7: Sir Aric Devilkin, Evil Knight, Demon’s Son up at DriveThru. I’m hoping that it will fly off the metaphorical shelves, seeing as it’s perfect for any fantasy campaign, whether it’s D&D, Pathfinder, Palladium, or whatever. It features more stellar artwork from Joseph Scott Lawn, who I have now convinced to blog…

40K Rogue Trader’s Rising Star

A quick hit today, as I frantically attend to matters of business across the real world and Internet. This absolutely deserves a post, however, so I will proceed. Jason Marker, the man behind Motor City Gamewerks , is one of my very dearest friends on the planet. Despite our close personal and professional associations, he has somehow managed to rise above and continues to impress in the freelance game design …

Qucik Hit: My Fantasy Writing Retreat

Ah, to be alone with my pen As my writing “to do” list picks up and the day job continues to pile on its burdens, I find myself fantasizing about getting away from it all. I’ve often wanted to just take a week off, get out of the house with nothing but a stack of notebooks and a box of…

Star Wars Lives Again

Just a quick hit tonight. I’m sitting here, watching Firefly on Netflix, and making Star Wars RPG characters. How is that for an awesome evening? I’m even going so far as to build a good character sheet, all typed out on the official template with character art worthy of posting. In fact, here’s a preview of the character I’m working on right …

Is Palladium’s Rifts Trademark Legit?

This is just a quick hit as I write tomorrow’s blog post. This bit of information doesn’t really fit in with the rest of the article, but I felt like this was an important distinction. When I read Palladium’s Rifts trademark as it applies to movies, which you can read here , I started to wonder if it really was intended to cover a video game, or simply…
