Glorious In Its Illegality

I think about a month ago someone posted a picture on Twitter of a thick, hardback edition of the WEG Star Wars role-playing game. It looked in every way to be a resurrected from the dead re-publishing of the last version of the D6 role-playing game with a bunch of …

…And RPGs Go Down!

Well, today I made a decision to step back from the RPG group. No great fallouts or arguments. Everyone is still friends. It’s just I haven’t full on enjoyed the gaming since about 1.5 to 2.5 years ago with the Prometheus Institute and Fate Fading Suns games. Numerous reasons why …

The Event Experiment

So, I’ve started experimenting with constructing a Marvel Heroic Role Playing (MHRP) event. It’s a bit different, in that I’m using the concept of the event but it’s not a Marvel one. It will involve pre-generated characters as it falls into one of the three modes of delivery I’m going …

Tyranny of Dragons S2

This one was a tale of two camps! We were sent to find out where the raiders who had attacked Greenest were holding up and, as it turned out, also seek out a Monk who had been investigating the cult. The session ran short, which isn’t a problem only in …

Tyranny of Dragons S1

We started Tyranny of Dragons last Sunday playing through what I assume is the first ‘adventure’, though I don’t know if this is true. It was great fun, but also quite combat encounter intense with our characters rolling into one after the other. One of the characters died, but it …

The Tyranny of Dragons Challenge

Gaming died over the summer (along with this blog, but that’s potentially for another day). It’s always a difficult affair, proving disruptive to the gaming schedule, this time we decided to just give up all together. Traditionally, the group has always given a new edition of Dungeons & Dragons a …

Gaming is Dead! Long Live Gaming!

It’s safe to say, in gaming terms, a pinnacle was reached in the last quarter of 2012 and the first of 2013. We’d finished the 4E Campaign, the longest and most consistent campaign we’d run. Then I spent about a year out of gaming to come back for the Prometheus …

Storium – The Second Kickstarter

I’ve backed my second Kickstarter. The first one was Fate Core this second one is something quite different: Storium. I’ve opted for the second backer level, which gives me access during the testing phases as well as a first year subscription. It wasn’t a vast amount of money and I …

13th Age 1.1: Everything is New

We had the first full session of the 13th Age campaign last weekend. It was great fun. It had some encounters, some revelations about the ancient, pre-history of the settings, including the revealing of The Ancient, the Icon that was left unexplained during the pre-game discussions. We also had some …
