23 Questions

I’m a little slow on the uptake on this theme that’s passing through the RPG blogosphere from Zak. Here are the questions and my answers: 1. Single invention most proud of? The social class system in my RPG. 2. Last time I DMed? Last Friday. I’ll do it again today after work. 3. Last time ...

TRPBTNTWAs

So I’m a week-and-a-half behind on this post, and much of the RPG blogosphere has picked up the thread and run with it already. I blame work, NaNoWriMo and a general lack of sleep for the tardiness of this response to this post. Here’s what I have to say on the matters at hand: Book ...

New Charity Sale at DriveThruRPG

I just spotted this link (yeah, I’m a day behind on my blog reading) over at The Other Side Blog. He describes the sale and the details, so I won’t copy/paste his entire post here. It does support The Wayne Foundation, which works to prevent child sex trafficking. Yep. Even in these modern times, there ...

My GM Merit Badge

My GM Merit Badge
Stuart over at Strange Magic posted this blog with a list of merit badges for GMs and tons of people have jumped on the bandwagon. In an effort to be part of the droves, I’m posting the one merit badge that I think best exemplifies my gaming style as a GM. I didn’t choose this ...

Building a Better GM

A post over at Hill Cantons challenged the RPG blogosphere to take up arms and give some advice to GMs across the world. I’ll take that challenge! He stated that we should focus on three ideas, describe how they “pop” and what are the hows and nut-and-bolts of the ideas in action. Here goes! Pay ...

Scientists Test Medieval Armor

Treadmill shows medieval armour influenced battles Some folks over in the UK tested how armor (or armour for you British folks) affects endurance, speeds and all that good stuff. It’s quite an interesting read and almost mandatory for anyone that is creating a fantasy or medieval setting or game system. I’m happy to say that ...

Dundjinni and Hero Designer / Side-by-Side

As you may have guessed by now, I love maps and mapping software. This includes the (seemingly abandoned) Dundjinni. I also love playing GURPS and Hero and pretty much any other “point build” system. However, GURPS and Hero are complex enough that I find that using software (GURPS Character Assistant or HeroDesigner) really helps streamline ...

Blogroll Updated

I’ve updated the blogroll on the left sidebar to include all of the RSS feeds that I follow (plus a few more sites that I visit regularly.) I’ve also removed a few blogs that are now dead and gone. There are probably millions of RPG blogs that I’m missing. Of those millions, a few hundred ...

Three Years Gone

Three Years Gone
Gary, how you are missed though I never met you in person. Without your diligence, creativity and willingness to share your wonderful works, my life would be much poorer than it is now. I would not have the best friends in the world for it is role playing that brought us together. I would not ...

Two Worthy Causes

This came across my RSS feed from Gnome Stew. I can’t detail it any better than they have, so I’m just linking to their post. Go check it out. Cheap RPG stuff for a good cause. Everyone wins. Once this post is up, I’m following the links to make my purchases.
