Using The Right Game for Your Game

Once again Banesfinger showed up and inspired me again with his comments on the old Savage Worlds: Whiff & Ping. This got me thinking about the crunchy bits of games and who I choose what rules to use for which campaign. Since these thoughts started with Savage Worlds, I’ll start there. I totally admit that

Interview with Reality Blurs President, and author of Realms of Cthulhu, Sean Preston

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to run a session of Realms of Cthulhu for Savage Worlds .  I wrote a review for the setting which can be found by clicking here .  If you aren’t familiar with H.P. Lovecraft or the twisted, dark themes of which he wrote, I recommend you start there. In my review I asked the…

How I traveled to another world… A Stargazer’s World!

I know I’ve been a contributor to Stargazer’s World for a short time, but it already feels like home. Friends had asked me why I wasn’t blogging before and I usually answered that I wouldn’t. Not because I couldn’t write (I believe I can do that passably) but because I felt that those things I felt passionate about were either, of little interest…

Prepping a Convention Game, Pt 1

Given that I’m only a few days out from GenCon, and I recently got some experience with prepping convention games ( see KantCon Actual Play Sessions ). I figured that on the eve of the eve of my departure for Indianapolis, I’d take some time and give some insights on how I went about prepping my games for KantCon, …

Realms of Cthulhu, Savage Lovecraft

Published in October 2009, it has clearly taken me far too long to get a copy and start playing this product.  As a game master relatively new to Savage Worlds by Pinnacle Entertainment , but utterly infatuated, as well as one prone to fits of madness and visions of eldritch aberrations, Realms of Cthulhu is right up my alley.  For those woefully unfamiliar with H.P…

Legends of Steel: Savage Worlds Edition [Review]

Let me start by saying that  Legends of Steel gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.  I love the tone and style, which are right on.  The cover drew me in from the start, and the illustrations maintained a consistent feel throughout the PDF.  On a similar note, the Edges, especially the Professional Edges, continue to set the tone for a …

Review: Legends of Steel – Savage Worlds Edition

There are campaign settings for Savage World for almost every genre. One genre I’ve been missing for some time was Swords & Sorcery. But luckily Jeff Mejia aka EvilDM released Legends of Steel in a Savage Worlds edition some time ago. I recently had the chance to check it out as he now sells his works on DriveThruRPG now. The 70-paged PDF is truely a great introduction into …

Savage Worlds Combat: Whiff & Ping

It’s been so long since I blogged anything about Savage Worlds. So, I figured it was time to go back and revisit my old friend. This time I want to rant a little about Whiff & Ping. For those not up on the local gamer jargon, Whiff & Ping is easy to explain. Whiff: I
