Playing Dungeon! With My Kid

November 5, 2012 by

This weekend I had the opportunity to play Dungeon! with my daughter (7).  We had a great time, and the rules were easy enough for her to quickly pick up and play.  The game is simple, but very fun, and I definitely recommend it for parents looking for a D&D-ish game to play with their […]

2nd Edition D&D Coming Back, Old Modules Coming Back… What’s Next?

November 2, 2012 by

It seems that Wizards of the Coast is on a reprint kick. Of course, it’s easy to figure out why.  4th Ed. is on its way out, and at this point that’s more reality than speculation.  Books haven’t been announced, and yeah, Dungeon/Dragon content is still being released, but…. obviously 5th Ed. is king right […]

So news out of Gencon today for fans of the SW franchise.  Fantasy Flight Games has finally released information about their game, and is even selling a beta version of the rules (for a hefty $30 price). The first in what will be a series of three games set to be released in 2013, 2014, […]

I called it

So at the Gencon keynote WOTC announced today that the DnD playtest process will take two years, and that they are going to open their back catalog in electronic format next year. So that means a 2014 release of the game, just in time for the 40th anniversary of DnD. I called it all, including […]

Star Wars: Age of Rebellion playtest document is out

I released a playtest version of my Dragon Age hack turning it into a Star Wars RPG. You can find it at the Dragon Age Oracle blog. It’s a playtest, and some rules are unfinished, but it is most definitely playable, up to level 10. So if you want to play Star Wars using the […]

Take the muzzle off, D&D Next is Here!

Last December, I was supposed to be part of that now famous group of people who flew to WOTC headquarters and participated in the first demonstration of what is now being referred top as “Dnd Next”, or as I call it, 5e.  We were NOT told it was for 5e, but rather for a conference […]

Space Combat in my SW/Age hack

I originally posted this on my Google+ page, I am reposting it here for those not on G+. I play tested space combat in my SW/Age hack last night, and it went pretty well.  I’m going to get into a bit of the crunchy AGE bits here, so bear with me if you don’t understand […]

Tempted by the Dark Side of the SW Age Force

May 3, 2012 by

One of the questions I’ve been asked about my Star Wars/Age conversion is about the Force.  I’m pulling from a variety of sources in this conversion, but admittedly, the d6 game is a big, if not the largest, influence. So here’s how I’m handling the Force and the dark side; the Force is one of the […]

EDIT:  Mike Mearls tweeted today that the board game is no hoax.  Does this mean that the 3.5 reprints are a go? Interesting times indeed. “I’m just sitting here Watching the wheels go round and round I really love to watch them roll.”  John Lennon Well, this certainly made for an interesting week in D&D land. […]

SW/Age hack Adversaries

Another day, another example of where I’m going with this Star Wars/Dragon Age hack.  This is really starting to take shape as a playable game, if only for playtesting purposes. Here are some sample enemies:  a stormtrooper, a thug, a young rancor, an average bounty hunter, and an imperial customs agent. As you can see with the rancor, the […]
