March 19, 2014 by

9

The GAMA Trade Show is currently taking place in Vegas (where Greg Leeds, WOTC CEO is the keynote speaker), and some news regarding D&D 5th Ed. came out following WOTC’s presentation. No mention was made of a release date or price point, ignoring what we all know was leaked from the Barnes and Noble website, […]

Expanding Horizons

Lately I’ve been on kind of a Fate kick. I picked up both Fate Core, and Fate Accelerated Edition from Evil Hat Productions, and I’ve been digging into them all week. For those of you that follow this blog mostly from the D&D side of the street, and aren’t aware of Fate, it’s an rpg […]

Unpacking the new Star Wars Beginner’s Role Playing Game box

December 20, 2012 by

I received the new Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginner’s game in the mail yesterday, and thought I’d share with you the contents of the box. I can’t speak yet to the actual playing experience, that won’t happen for another week or so, but I can comment on the contents of the game.  It’s worth noting that I […]

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

November 2, 2012 by

12

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 […]

Starfighter combat in SW/AGE

April 23, 2012 by

1

One of the things that has to be made up from scratch in my Star Wars/AGE hack is starship combat, which is iconic to SW, yet in AGE there are no vehicular combat rules of any kind.  I decided that the easiest way for me to approach that, and in keeping with the spirit of […]

Star Wars/AGE conversion update

Some time ago I mentioned that I was slowly working on a Dragon Age/Star Wars hack, but I never really posted much more than that.  Since then I’ve received a couple of emails from people interested in the project, so I decided to recharge my batteries and get to it. Over time, I’ve gotten some […]

To Grid Or Not To Grid, That Is The Question… And Another Topic…

April 18, 2012 by

There’s been some talk lately about the infamous “GRID” in rpg’s. It’s come up in conversations about DnDNext, and whether or not people prefer to play with it or would rather go the “theatre of the mind route”.  I also heard Will Wheaton on the latest Jennisodes podcast refer to 4e as basically a “board […]

NewbieDM Review: Neverwinter Campaign Setting

August 20, 2011 by

15

I’ll start this review by telling you that I’ve never been a huge Forgotten Realms guy, although I love the older Forgotten Realms products.  I’ve owned the boxed sets, source books and a few novels from the 2e era of the Realms.  I even own the 3e forgotten Realms book, even though I played very […]

Classics Unboxed: Planescape Campaign Setting

May 3, 2011 by

9

It’s hard not to think about the numerous campaign settings that were released for D&D when one thinks of 2nd Ed.  In fact, campaign settings are likely the reason for that edition’s popularity throughout the 90′s.  The era of the boxed sets brought gamers many jewels, and to many, the brightest one of all was […]
