The free PIE RPG. 0

Interview: Chris Perrin 0

Tweet I met Chris Perrin at this year’s Gen Con Media Meet & Greet event. Alas the location was far to dark and too loud for my tastes.

And of course I didn’t even recognize him, even though we have…

5 Reasons Why You Should Check Out Fudge 0

Tweet For some reason Fudge , the roleplaying game by Steffan O’Sullivan back in the nineties, is something like the unloved uncle to the popular FATE system. A lot of gamers have heard about FATE, especially after Evil Hat released the Dresden Files Roleplaying Game , which uses the latest version of the FATE rules, but only a few people have an idea what …
