Traveller RPG Week Day Two: Character Generation

It’s hard to believe that Classic Traveller is over thirty years old. As a rules system it was so far ahead of its time that it is still ahead of its time, now. Fitting for a science-fiction role-playing game, I guess. The ahead-of-its-timedness begins with Character Generation, which is the topic of today’s post. But you already knew that, right? We are…

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…

Traveller RPG Week Day One: What is Traveller?

Traveller and I go way back. It was the first role-playing game I ever played (back in the early ’80s), and that first time spawned my love of the hobby that has lasted a lifetime. I have vague memories of that first scenario. We had docked at a spaceport and managed to annoy the station overseer during entry (something about “not waiting in …

RPG Buffet plays 4E D&D

I just finished listening to the latest episode of the All Games Considered podcast in which their “RPG Buffet” group discussed their experiences playing 4th edition D&D. This is their last stop on a yearly goal of playing all the editions of D&D. Although they do their best to avoid saying it outright, it’s clear the game didn’t really appeal to any of…

World Building Pt.1 – Addiction and Acceptance

So, if you are like me, and you have been Role Playing for some time, you have probably taken a shot at getting out of the Player chair and going behind the screen to GM a few games.  If you are even more like me, you tend to get drafted into the GM spot fairly often.  I have been gaming since early high…

Book Review: How We Came to Live Here

One of the results of that conversation was a copy of How We Came to Live Here for me to put my eyes on and review for the lovely readers of TC. I was able to take the time to do that recently and these are the results. How We Came…

Lamentation of the Flame Princess Sale

Tweet You might have heard of Lamentation of the Flame Princess before. It’s a D&D retro-clone that does a few things differently than most others. Instead of just being a close copy of 1974’s D&D it really is its own game,  presenting a “sinister and horrific twist on traditional fantasy gaming”. James Raggi IV’s has really done a great job with this! Instead of most other retro …
