Gen Con: Third Day

Yesterday was a long day. I think we didn’t return to Zach’s house before midnight, but, guys, we had a lot fun. Richard Iorio planned to run a game of Shadow, Swords and Spell for us, but he wasn’t feeling that well, so Zachary stepped in and prepared something in just 45 minutes. But even though he had only that much time to think about and …

Gen Con: Second Day

Gen Con is a bit like the Matrix. You can’t be told about Gen Con, you have to experience it to understand it. And guys, I am enjoying myself over here. It’s great to see all this cool new products, be among thousands of gamers, and being able to talk to the game designers themselves. This morning I checked out the Kobold …

Free Stuff Friday: DC Adventures Quick Start PDF

This week’s Free Stuff is : DC Adventures Quick Start PDF . Continuing with my Free Stuff Friday DC Adventures Character Sheet from last week, Green Ronin Publishing just released a quick start PDF for the new DA Adventures role playing game . How crazy awesome is that! You can try out the game for FREE before you buy it! That sounds like a company …

First Impression: Ion Guard

While some people are out carousing on a far away gaming convention currently taking place (don’t ask I won’t name names), others have to mind the shop and console themselves with picking up a new gaming supplement on RPGNow . Seeing that Ion Guard by Radioactive Ape Designs had come out for ICONS I snatched that baby up. I still have not finished readying it all …

Gen Con: The Race!

Fellow RPG blogger Jeff Uurtamo recorded this video this morning, when the Exhibit Hall has been opened for the public. It’s something I had to share with you guys! It’s hilarious, isn’t it?

Gen Con: First Day

Wow! Calling Gen Con amazing is actually an understatement! It’s even better than that! Zachary threw us out of bed early this morning, so that we actually were one of the first people who were allowed into the exhibit hall this morning. That’s when I took up the opportunity to check out some booths and taking a few pictures. This beholder is really HUGE! At the…

Carcassonne

As last Saturday’s D&D game was approaching, I came to the realization that I was not going to have an adventure ready. This has happened to me once or twice before and generally the game is just called off. This gives me an extra week to plan out an adventure. This weekend I didn’t want to do that. I hated the idea of my group going all week …

Off to Gen Con

Today is the great day – first day of the four best days in gaming ! As you can probably imagine, I am very excited, my bag is packed with all the stuff I might need, and in a few minutes we’ll drive to Indianapolis to have some breakfast and then get our press badges. Zachary from RPGBlog2 and his wife are great hosts …

Stargazer’s World: Many Happy Returns!

I asked Michael Wolf if he’d mind if I could have the privilege of officially congratulating him on the occasion of the 2nd anniversary of Stargazer’s World.  It’s a difficult achievement for any tabletop gaming blog or site, but it’s even more difficult for it to stay fresh, entertaining, and useful along the way.  Stargazer’s World…

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…

Special 2nd Anniversary Post: Getting your Players to Play Indie RPGs

Stargazer and I have been good online buddies for quite some time and I’ve seen this blog grow from the moment it joined the RPGbloggers network to it’s current authoritative status.  Yet, as much as I talk to our good friend, I wasn’t quite sure what to discuss here. Then it struck me, he loves Indie RPGs and I’ve recently developed quite a…

Review: Kobold Quarterly Issue 14

Currently I play none of the games which are regularly covered by Kobold Quarterly , but so far I’ve enjoyed reading every issue I got my hands on. Aside from a lot of material for games like D&D 4th Edition, Pathfinder or even Dragon Age, a large portion of the magazine contains articles that apply to any fantasy game. And in most …

What about the GameMastery Guide? A review…

The Paizo GameMastery Guide is an excellent companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rule Book . The Core Rulebook combines all the rules you used to find in the old D&D 3.5 Player’s Handbook and Dungeon Master’s Guide into one book, but there was much more ground to cover, especially for the Game Master. Enter the GameMastery Guide, full of advice, ideas and rules for new and experienced …

Preparing for Gen Con: Almost There!

I can’t believe it’s just a few days to Gen Con ! To say I am excited would be an utter understatement. Currently the emotional state I am in can only be described as a weird mixture of anticipation and sheer panic. This will be my first trip to Gen Con and the first time I ever leave Europe. Alas I am the kind of …

Some House rules for WR&M

During the last days a lot of people have started creating their own stuff for Warrior, Rogue & Mage . There are already a couple of discussion threads on the official Stargazer Games forums , and fellow RPG blogger John Payne posted a few of his house rules on his blog “ Sycarion Diversions ”. Aside from some Errata (expect some official errata, when I am …

Warrior, Rogue & Mage is “Free Product of the Week” at DriveThruRPG and other updates

Wow, it has been just a few days since release but it seem I’ve hit a nerve with my free fantasy game “ Warrior, Rogue & Mage ”. Yesterday’s newsletter by DriveThruRPG lists WR&M as “Free Product of the Week”! I can’t put it in proper words how excited I am about all this. And believe it or not, my little game has been “bought” 1024 times now! This …
