  1. Yesterday I hade some spare time. So I started my gamer laptop, and tought, hey it's been a while. I purchased Baldurs Gate II enhanced Edition last summer, barely checked it. Let's start a game. Now I shouldn't have done that. Yesterday vanished in a blurr of goblins, ending in a scrap with Yuan Ti and Trolls. Ohh where does the time go? Beware of games like this. They will eat your time.
  2. Last 22 hours. Looks good and been game tested at the UK Conventions here in UK. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1233586901/neon-sanctum
  3. I've just launched an indie RPG kickstarter for Cavernquest, a role playing game about dwarven adventure! Its big selling point is that players can create a group of dwarves and experience more of the world than just dungeon delving (though that is present). Dwarves can gain experience by mining, forging weapons, or even apprenticing other dwarves! There are lots of fun little systems for things like journeying in different underground enviroments, investing in communities, and creating magical items. I've got a free pdf of an early edition of the game up on the kickstarter page, and you g
  4. After many many years of being a (GM/DM) for RPG adventure groups (with some great groups and wonderful memories)...I retired as an active (DM) last November, thinking that it was time for younger brains and blood to tell the stories and weave the fantasies for avid fantasy players! Since my retirement...I have been besieged by former past players and the new friends they have made...to come out of retirement and conduct at least one more RPG adventure story and fantasy game! Well...I am back in the fold!...After our apartment move is completed and things are back to normal...I have ag
  5. My Iron Kingdoms RPG group sometimes can’t hold back. When we saw that Borka: Vengeance of the Rimshaws was riding a polar bear… well, we had to figure out how that might work for us. Luckily, we have a very good GM who is willing to make up some rules in the name of Awesome. And then it fell to me to create some awesome minis featuring our heroes riding bears. I grabbed a couple bears from Scibor (they’re very large) and put a couple of Reaper Bones minis on them- then did a lot of sculpting. Here are the results: First off- the Gobber Man-at-Arms/Duelist/Horseman:
  6. This is the game thread for the adventure Shadows of Eldolan by Cal Moore. Please try to keep this thread IC and all OOC discussions/questions to the recruitment thread. ©2014 Pelgrane Press Ltd. Aside from holding the all important copyright information, this first post will serve as a repository for select information obtained during the adventure. I know out in the real world a lot of groups have someone to recap the last session or something similar, but in the real world a single scene rarely stretches out over weeks either. Hopefully it'll help everything run smoother. At the
  7. Don't know how much interest this one will stir up around here, but I LOVED the original game. Onyx Path, the spiritual successor to White Wolf and licensee of the White Wolf line of games is kickstarting a 20th anniversary edition of Wraith: the Oblivion. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/deluxe-wraith-the-oblivion-20th-anniversary-editio
  8. Hey all. I've decided to try my hand at running a pbp here using the 13th Age system. I'm not sure how many of you have actually played it, but hopefully some of you will be willing to give it a try. If you happen to be a 3E/Pathfinder fanatic, Jonathan Tweet explains why you should set his old system aside for a moment and try his new one. The good news: If you don't own the core book, the publisher has made the rules available as a free pdf here. The bad news: They don't want the free edition to be so nice that you don't buy the book. Not only have all the pretties been removed,
  9. This is an adventuring party I created for the Iron Kingdoms RPG. Our group has been playing for years, but this is the first time we've really gotten into playing Menites (there's an issue of them not playing well with non-humans). Our group started their own order of knights who like to emphasize that "there's a place for all at the feet of Menoth." In role playing terms, it has been a lot of fun- they're quite condescending to the non-humans, but at the same time, they try to convert the dirty children of the Wurm rather than simply killing them all off. They all started life as R

  11. So, most couples want me to match the two of them, but every once in a while, I match characters that they made. In this case, they made two elves.
  12. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/seankreynolds/five-moons-rpg-by-sean-k-reynolds A new Fantasy RPG by Sean K. Reynolds, former designer for both WotC (2nd and 3rd Ed) and Paizo (Pathfinder). He's got a hugely informative Blog about his thought processes and design goals.
  13. Dexterity It is one of the core stats for old D&D. It covers juggling ability, sleight-of-hand, reflexes, lock picking, speed, agility, dodging, all things to do with speed and motion even aiming. But I got to thinking about it and I wondered why all those things were automatically lumped together. 17 Dex That is a high score: Consider a Tree-Sloth: it is incredibly agile - 17 makes sense; its hands (and feet!) display tremendous dexterity - 17, sure; but is if fast? no, it should get a 4-5 Dex when considering its speed. Consider a Gnomish Clockmaker: very, very, go
  14. Interesting minimalist RPG ruleset. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tinydungeon/tiny-dungeon-a-tabletop-rpg-by-smoking-salamander?ref=nav_search
  15. This was originally going to go in the Acquisitions thread... I found a copy of The World of Synnibarr, an old roleplaying game. I was very pleased to find it -- it's been out of print since last century, and is not likely to ever be reprinted. You see, Synnibarr is widely known as the single second worst RPG ever written, second only to the insanely hysterical Spawn of Fashan, the holy grail of RPG collectors. Now, note that this only goes for a certain value of "worst." F.A.T.A.L. is pretty bad. I've read it. I found it rather off putting. Likewise with Racial Holy War, another game
  16. It was the bottom of the battle; the minions were all dead, but most of the party was down, and two were bleeding out, and the cleric was out of spells, frantically trying to stabilize one of the bleeders. And the Big Bad, with one expert slash of his sword, brought down the rogue. It was down to the fighter, now, but he was down to his last ten HP, and one blow would likely decide the rest of the game. He decided to play defensively, see how much of the Big Bad was still there. "I try circle strafing, I'm going to try to flank him." "He can plainly see what you're doing," I said. "Yeah,
  17. Hello friends! I'm a long time Reaper customer and forum stalker and I wanted to share an RPG project with the community that we have launched on Kickstarter today. NGS is a rules-light RPG engine that grants you the flexibility to create any character or world that you can imagine. The rules also facilitate collaborative storytelling through a number of elements like our new Narrative Accolade system. The narrative collaboration of NGS builds an engagement in the story telling process in a manner that I do not believe is available in any other game. Everyone at the table works togethe
  18. I just came across a random link to a modest looking kickstarter that might be of interest to anime fans. It is a Miyazaki inspired RPG rulebook that sounds kid friendly. And it's only $20 for a printed rulebook, with free shipping worldwide. It isn't something I would normally back, but I like the simple looking project with sensible stretch goals, and I figure the rule book will make a nice gift for my niece. It's got a couple days left, and has already unlocked all the stretch goals. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/brentnewhall/the-whispering-road-a-miyazaki-inspired-tabletop-r
  19. This book is on DrivethruRPG and is 'pay what you want'. Amazingly, the average contribution is (only?) $1.33... Check it out here!
  20. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/diamondsutra/ryuutama-natural-fantasy-role-playing-game Ryuutama is a fantasy RPG originally published in Japanese and now translated into English! It is meant to be a game that takes the "NPCs" of a fantasy world (farmers, merchants, etc) and has them go on journeys. As they go on their journey and encounter strange new lands and exciting new things, a dragon (played by the GM) watches over them and records their journey... and can assist them. The type of dragon the GM chooses influences the "flavor" of the story. I've been looking forward to s
  21. Hey guys! I wasn't sure whether to post this in General Fantasy, or Sci-fi as the game has elements of both. Anyway, here is where I posted it. I've been reading the PDF of the core rule book and I have to say I really like the setting. I think the actual play mechanic is a bit different, but I'll reserve judgement until I actually get to play it (someday... I hope). It definitely revolves around how bad your characters wants to succeed at something as opposed to how good you actually are at it. But, from what I've read, that's how Monte wanted it to work. The mechanics are at the same tim
  22. Hello. Anyone heard of or already playing Monster MMORPG ? It is a virtual pet mmorpg game like Pokemon. http://www.monstermmorpg.com If you wanna register use this link please :d http://www.monstermmorpg.com/Register?RefId=92153 Game video can be seen here And one of my favorite monster
  23. So Amazon just sent me an email the other day recommending the "Premium" editions of just about every core D&D book from every edition except vanilla 3E. I had known about them doing a collector's reprint of AD&D 1E, but the other editions came as a bit of a surprise. While I won't be going and grabbing the 3.5 books, I was kind of tempted by the AD&D 2E books for the sake of wanting to play it at least once in my life. Has anyone here gotten their hands on any of these books yet? Are they straight reprints of the old stuff, or do they have added errata in them like the reprint
  24. So, the Burning Wheel people have KickStarted a new dungeon-crawler, Torchbearer! I am in. I don't expect to ever get to play it; it's a campaign game and I am time-poor. But I very much want to read through it! It's got strong survival / struggle elements and things like hunger and fear come into play as your poor desperate idiots adventurers go delving into dark, cold places the living should not go. This sounds like exactly the RPG I would have liked to play when I was young. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/burningwheel/torchbearer?ref=live
  25. Again...forgive me if this question is posted on the wrong forum. I have read (The Gathering) & (The Playing) forums. I am completely baffled as to how you are able to play an (RPG/D&D) adventure game on this computer system. I understand that the (GM) can write the scene/text and the players can write their individual action/acts texts...but how are dice rolls done & confirmed...or any vast number of other situation actions/acts that require (GM) visual confirmation to decide the next action/act that transpires. As a (GM), I am completely baffled & in the dark as to how you ca
