Ask The Readers: What’s your take on Exalted?

White Wolf’s Exalted is one of the games that immediately piqued my interest when it came out. I’ve enjoyed several White Wolf games before and I was excited to see White Wolf’s version of high fantasy. While I still leaf through the rulebook once in a while, I never have played or run that game. That has several reasons. I like a lot of the concepts of…

Every Icon(ic) superhero needs a super villain!

Let it never be said that I am a fickle fan! The superhero fever steamroller plows on unabated… Recently I tried out the ICONS RPG random generation method and wrote a post about it. Te result was Mind Shadow, a super heroine I’ve become rather fond off. When I wrote up the character based on the random generation results I also created an enemy for Mind …

What about Champions Universe? A review…

This is a short review about a PDF product we recently received a review copy of, Champions Universe by Hero Games . This is the default Hero System superhero universe. A rich, detailed campaign setting imbued with the feel of traditional comic book universes populated with classic Champions villains and characters. It integrates elements from the Champions Online game with which I am not familiar so I can’t really judge that…

Roll Through the Ages

First of all, a big apology to everybody who is waiting for me to write something about Descent or Arkham Horror, as originaly promised. I had very little time to spare recently and many things that kept my mind occupied. So today I will give you another review of a rather light filler type of game: Roll Through the Ages – The Bronze Age by Matt Leacock …

More ICONS goodness…

My super fever continues and shows no sign of abating, not that I want it to! While looking online for ICONS resources I stumbled upon the ICONS Wiki . It’s still growing but there are some excellent resources in there. From New characters, to crib sheets, new rules, character sheets to random character generators. Great stuff… If you are an ICONS fan it’s worth checking it out…

I am currently collecting ideas for a revised edition of my rules-light fantasy game Warrior, Rogue & Mage . Aside from a better presentation I want to add things I missed last time, add some optional rules and expand on the included setting. But most important than that, I want YOU to be happy with that revised edition. I want it …

Field Report (part 2): Alien Survivor (via Lady Blackbird)

That is the most convoluted title to any of my posts… But I digress! When we last left out intrepid heroes (i.e. my players) we were about to play Alien Survivor . Let me give you a little background, just in case you didn’t read part one . After having played Lady Blackbird at the Puerto Rico Role Players Geeknic II I decided that …

What about ICONS? A review…

ICONS RPG is a new superhero role-playing game by Adamant Entertainment . It has been enthusiastically received by the role-playing community, if blog posts and sales at RPG Now / Drive Thru RPG are any indication. Since first hearing about it I was excited! It’s designed by Steve Kenson who has worked in some of my favorite RPGs, I own various PDFs by Adamant that I’ve enjoyed very …

Review: Sunken Empires

Sunken Empires is one of Open Design ’s latest Pathfinder compatible products. On 82 pages you get in my opinion the definite works on underwater adventuring for Paizo’s Pathfinder RPG and much, much more. I don’t exaggerate when I tell you that this book is packed! It’s amazing how many stuff you can squeeze into a 82-pages softcover book. The softcover …

Rolling up an Icon(ic) Superhero!

Ever since I began reading the ICONS RPG I’ve been itching to roll up a character. However I wanted to finish readying it before I did this. Don’t ask me why, it’s and old habit. But since I finished the book yesterday (and I’ll write me review later this week) I’m now ready to create my first superhero using the system…

Why isn’t Gears done yet?

As you probably know, I have been working on the roleplaying game project “Gears” quite a while now. In the meantime I even released an early draft to the public, which looked pretty playable, if you ignore the fact that it still laceds magic rules and talents. The problem is that I basically keep rewriting the rules from scratch. The gist is …

Improve Your Game: Character creation as a team effort

In some modern roleplaying games, especially games based on FATE rules, character creation is something one player can’t do on his own. In order to create your character you have to cooperate with your fellow players. The character creation method in FATE makes sure the background stories of the player characters are already intertwined in some way. The GM (and the players) will never have to face the issue of…
