Putting it mildly, my review of Legend of the Five Rings Magic of Rokugan (for d20) was well-received by the staff. I’ll post up a link when they publish it to the site. I enjoyed doing the review quite a bit (would have liked more time, but the situation demanded a quick turn around), and […]
Not many. I’m writing a review for an online Gamer Magazine, on a d20 sourcebook. I’ll link to that that when it’s up. I purchased Spycraft for d20, which I hope to incorporate some ideas from into the Living Pulp endeavor. Star Wars this weekend, and I believe I owe this site an update on […]
WotC has released some new infor from the revised edition of the rulebook that coming out in a few months. I’ve ‘implemented’ a few of these changes on the Star Wars pages. Here’s the highlights: In the House Rules section, details on how Armor is going to work — it’s damage reduction now, doesn’t interfere […]
Just too, too funny: HoloNet Life | Best in Show Eaten by Second-Best
Area Woman Finds Sith Icon in Pastebread Or not… still, a pretty fun read. Holonetnews is a good, immersive site. I like reading all the advertisements. Star Wars tonight. Should be interesting.
I worked out something very interesting for Randy Trimmer’s cry havoc :: amber drpg game. I’ll explain it here, and you can go see the application of it at the link above. Randy had hit upon the idea of using a blog tool (blogger, in his original conception) as a sort of posting board for […]
Ghosts, Demons and Spirits in Japanese Lore on Asianart.com (via Quiddity)
After a miserable night of dealing with the sudden Senatorial name-chance, I’ve come to this conclusion: For the sake of my sanity, Bail Antilles and Bail Organa are now officially the same person in my campaign — Bail is the scion of BOTH the Organa and Antilles royal houses (Antilles is his paternal descent, Organa […]
Inspired by Rey’s kick-ASS banner, I updated the main Prince of Alderaan page and also did some stuff with the overview page. Finally, I added a cast page, which mostly just has names and pictures and a link to the groups ship, although I did find text to put with Dave H’s character. Man that […]
I’ve added atimeline to the Prince of Alderaan game data. It should help people sort out what’s happening when in the greater scheme of things. Note to players: Here’s how to figure out your age: Step One: Check your current age. That’s how old you were for the Ando Prime mission. Step Two: Add two […]
Another (messy) update to the d20 Star Wars Campaign. Added more senatorial stuff and started working on pix for various NPCs that aren’t senators — the first of these is one “Nayda”, a vitrolic young girl that Dag was lucky enough to escort during a function at the Alderaanian Embassy.
I don’t mind how many exp I give out in the DnD game, because I won’t miss this game when it’s over, and leveling people quickly gets me to the conclusion a bit sooner. I’ve got the end of the campaign predicted, based on current exp/session rates, and I’m looking forward to it. The most […]
DnD, takes place at the Consortium, since Dave’s out of town and Margie can’t find a sitter. It’s fine — not as though I haven’t GM’d there any number of times before. Between working on the Pulp Heroes page, the new updates to the Star Wars page, and figuring out how to convert the L5R […]
I’ve done some overhauling at the Padawan’s Cave, removing the star maps that I don’t find myself using at all, and getting together a house rules page. Quite a bit of the changes are happening in the Prince of Alderaan section, where I’ve added little snippets on some of the major NPCs and have started […]
We couldn’t play on Friday, due to the weather, but we did manage to get everyone together Saturday night for session eight of The Prince of Alderaan, a d20 Star Wars Campaign. Quick Summary: Dag and Corvo are sent on a ‘routine rendezvous’ in the Inner Rim to pick up a parcel the Senator has […]
This Sunday, I’m coordinating my 2nd Gameday at Collectormania (which I’d provide a link to if I knew it). The first gameday was easy — very short notice, so not too many people showed up, and all I needed was to run the same scenario twice myself and go home. Piece of cake. People had […]
Tales of Virtue and Treachery — A bunch of fiction from Rokugan, for whoever’s interested.
Star Wars Campaign Session seven was on Friday the 22nd, and I’m going to talk about that as well as a few notes on the prior sessions. First, let’s summarize. Session One was a rescue-in-space scenario where the characters (all members/servants of the Antilles household and currently stationed on Coruscant) are tasked by the Senator […]
What D&D Character Are You? I Am A: Neutral Good Half-Elf Bard Thief Alignment:Neutral Good characters believe in the power of good above all else. They will work to make the world a better place, and will do whatever is necessary to bring that about, whether it goes for or against whatever is considered ‘normal’. […]

Official D&D Game Rule FAQ has been Updated (02/15/2002)
Ghenghis Con was very cool for me last year, because it was my first real experience stepping back into mainstream gaming, something I hadn’t been a part of since starting the on campus gaming org in college that introduced me to most of my friends. Last year was a new experience for a lot of […]
Randy updates his blog with comments about the various games he playing or planning on running at Q.E.D. — Quinn Elicits Dismay. Interesting and fun stuff which contains Randy’s (unsurprising) answer to the question “Which game do I like better? Amber or Anything Else?)
Session Seven? I need to put some GM logs up for the game, but nothing today. Need to get the house cleaned up and run errands. Robert and Dave G can’t make, so it’ll be… well, weird, not to put too fine a point on it. Update Actually, a couple people couldn’t make it, so […]
I am… Man of Leisure Man! I think I’m smiling just a little too much, though. The somewhat bemused expression is dead on, though.
So we started playing the Justice Squad campaign this weekend. Lots of fun. Here’s my personal good/bad/ugly list. Good – I’ve never been in a game GM’d by Dave, whom I’ve heard only good things of. No surprise, his style is different than mine, but great fun for everyone, and I always enjoy watching other […]
Session … not sure what number… sixth? The group just levelled up to 3rd. Rey can’t make it, so I think the scenario I was working on might have to wait a bit. Which means… NO idea what’s going on tonight. There is one possibility, I suppose. I’ll end up running Kashyyk (sp?) in Flames, […]
This Saturday, I ran a little one-shot for Jackie, Justin and the Hill-Kleerups. Justin was playing his ubiquitous halfling thief, and was scouting ahead. This has become a wonderful tool for working on communication skills with the Boy (which he doesn’t realize). I describe to him what is in the room, using the ‘normal’ boxed […]
So, Randy pointed me to this. Kind of interesting, even if you hate Scooby-doo (I do.) What roles do your characters fill? Do you follow a certain trend?
Game tonight. I got Nothing. Addendum: Dave sent me something funny to cheer me up. Comments on the game and thoughts on the storyline: tonight I’m using a module out of Star Wars Gamer: “Welcome to the Jungle.” I don’t mind using packaged modules, and this one was interesting enough, once I got through the […]
