My Quick 5e Thoughts

July 19, 2014 by

4

I wanted to give a quick and dirty “opinion post” on 5e, and this is not meant to be a comprehensive review, just quick thoughts… By now I’ve had a chance (and hopefully if you’re interested in 5e, you have as well) of reading and playing with both the basic rules pdf and the Starter […]

Talking about the 5e Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set

July 6, 2014 by

1

I’ll review the product soon, but I wanted to post this here for now… Mike Shea from Slyflourish.com and I recorded a google hangout where we talk about the new 5e starter box for about an hour. If you’re into watching grown men talk about elves and dwarves, I invite you to check it out. […]

June 24, 2014 by

WOTC published an unboxing video today of its upcoming Starter Set box, and I have to say that at first glance, I’m impressed and hopeful that it’ll be a good product. Based on what I can see on the video, it looks like a high quality product (expected from a publisher like WOTC). Full disclosure: […]

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.

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

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 […]

April 23, 2012 by

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 […]
