The final EBERRON REMIXED post can come after I've had some time to review the campaign setting and figure out exactly what I need to include (Dragonmarked Houses, plus tattoos? Some other power groups? Not even sure yet.)  In the meantime, I've been looking over my "5x5" for ...

AD ASTRA: The capes and rayguns space opera setting that I've been spending most of my time the last few months playing with. It is also deliberately an ersatz Star Wars, although as it continues to develop, it continues to diverge in many ways from the original. But it ...

Remixing Eberron—the setting Post I

Tue 22 August 2017 by Desdichado from Dark•Heritage

I said in my initial EBERRON REMIXED post that some aspects of the setting were a little too try-hard; i.e. they maybe would have been better had they been unshackled from the need to "fit" into the D&D paradigm, as it had evolved into by the time Eberron ...

Easy: Victory Games’ James Bond: 007. I bought a first edition copy in 1983 and have used it until about 2010, since when we haven’t had an espionage game running. Partly, this is a function of having worked in the industry, partly it was a response to the real ...

RPGaDAY #14 - Favorite system for campaigns

Mon 14 August 2017 by David Dolph from Big Ball of No Fun

Which RPG do you prefer for open-ended campaign play? 

I feel that the majority of RPG systems lend themselves to open-ended campaign play (Toon and Paranoia come to mind as systems/settings that would prove difficult for a sustained campaign). However, generic systems or those decoupled from a setting tend ...

It’s impenetrability is different than Nobilis or Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Machine. It simply has so many moving parts. Some of that’s really excellent.
