minimal Explosion

For me, creating minimald6 versions of things seems to be a fine way of de-stressing and getting some creative juices running. I think it has something to do with the simplicity of the starting point and the challenge of emulation. There’s little point creating something that doesn’t feel right. Davokar came out of a desire…

Dream Teams and Inspiration

These RPGaDay questions are still weird. Short (-ish) answers inevitable. Day #13: What makes a successful campaign? I have no idea. I have never had the opportunity to run one. Day #14: Your dream team of people you used to game with? My dream team resides in my current gaming group, the best bunch of people I…

What Comes Next?

I’m skipping a couple of entries in RPGaDAY because I just don’t have an answer. Both Day #10: Largest in-game surprise you have experienced? and Day #11: Which gamer most affected the way you play? – well, they’re drawing a blank. I have not, to my recollection, ever had any in-game surprise launched on me,…

Ideal Role Playing Session Needs…

RPGaDay Day #9 asks: Beyond the game, what’s involved in an ideal session? And I’d respond preparation. The level of prep varies wildly, but it matters at all levels and on both sides. Both the GM and the players owe it to one another to come prepared to the table to deliver their best game.…

Hardcover, Softcover, Digital

RPGaDay Day #8 asks: Hardcover, softcover, digital? What is your preference? If you look for the most significant impact on my gaming habits this year, you need to look no further than Symbaroum. A beautiful hardcover book filled with glorious illustrations with a dark and brooding cover image. The internal presentation of this book simply…

Stories About Your Character

RPGaDay Day #5 asks: What story does your group tell about your character? I have eternally made Dwarves Italian after a couple of entertaining games run in my ongoing Dragon Age campaign, does that count? I honestly can’t say that this applies to me because I don’t recall anyone ever talking to me about my…

Impressive Character Act

RPGaDay Day #4 asks: Most impressive thing another’s character did? Wow. While I have enjoyed the whole business of RPGaDay for the last few years, I find this business of player focus distressing, because I’m not a player (well, distressing might be a bit extreme, but it’s the first word that sprang to mind). Oddly,…

Book Pile: August 2016

This past weekend provided some solid gains in the roleplaying department – and explain why I never post much in the thread about resisting purchases. I got a dinged copy of 13th Age from Games Lore because I have heard so many positive things and had two good games. I couldn’t not buy it for…

O is for Open / Closed

I ran a game of Cypher system this past weekend and I think I have found myself in a special sort of dilemma. Up front and in the open, I love the Cypher system. I enjoy the level of simplicity and crunch that comes from a system that spends much of the time offering character…

Reading Shadow of the Demon Lord: Part 1

OK. So I picked Shadow of the Demon Lord up at Conception last weekend. Actually, I won it in the raffle at the end, which I appreciated a lot. I had my eye on the game for a while and picked up a bit of the electronic stuff, but the book I had on a sort…
