Fallout: Indianapolis

Tweet Recently I wrote about my plans to run several mini-campaigns in the future. The first campaign I am now working on is an Atomic Highway campaign set into the Fallout world. I didn’t want to use neither the Capital Wasteland from Fallout 3 nor the West Coast area from Fallout 1 and 2, so I decided to nuke the hell out of Indianapolis. Why Indianapolis? Basically any …

Return of the Gamer in Japan

This year, I have had the honor of returning to the land of fluorescent lights and panty vending machines.  That is right, the Gamer in Japan is back.  I, Shinobicow, have left the US, to yet again, make my Gamer way in the land of the rising Sun, Japan.  If you remember me, which I doubt many…

Come blog at my table… A review of the Open Game Table Anthology volume 2!

Tweet As a relative newcomer to blogging (only since February) I can’t say I kept abreast of the blogosphere. Of course I read some blogs but it was not a conscious effort, but since I’ve begun my wonderful foray into this community I’ve discovered great blogs, exciting ideas and made some wonderful friends. I’ve tried to catch up and read some of the blogs out there but…

You Don’t Always Need A Home Run

Tweet Hi there!  This is Zachary Houghton from RPG Blog 2, stepping in for my buddy Michael and his pals at Stargazer’s World.  This seems to be a week for GM advice, so I figure I’d throw another piece out there. When I was in Little League Baseball, the coach always used to tell us, “Don’t go out there and try to hit a home run…

Interview: Chris Perrin

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. I felt tired and exhausted and the location didn’t really improve things. So there I was chatting to some bloggers and podcasters when Chris came in. And of course I didn’t even recognize him, even though we have…

Review: MECHA

Tweet I love the mecha genre! I remember back in the 80s when we got cable TV I watched Robotech on some British TV station, although I couldn’t understand most of it. It has been many years later when I finally had the chance to rewatch the series. And this time I could finally understand what’s going on. But even though the language barrier kept me from fully…

The Heroes of Hougstran

5 Reasons Why You Should Check Out Fudge

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.
