We ran the slot 0 for part of the RPGA Living Force Almas trilogy last night. Because she’s a backup GM for the gameday and because the author of the modules was GMing the slot 0 for us, the only way for Jackie to ‘get’ the module was to play it. This meant I FINALLY […]
It stands for Total Party Kill. I’ve never perpetrated such a thing on any of my tables. Until Saturday. Long story short: in a lighthouse, someone (okay, it was Rey) cast a wall of fire in a room containing six 250-gallon copper tuns full of lamp oil. In the next room were sixty-five five gallon […]
Dave has used MT (and mad design skillz 🙂 to come up with a great page for a character he’s running for the Ill Met in Amber PBeM. Truly Excellent. I wish I was playing in a game, so I could do something this cool. Oh, wait. There’s DAVE’S game. And RANDY’S game (except I […]
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 […]
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)
Tales of Virtue and Treachery — A bunch of fiction from Rokugan, for whoever’s interested.
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 […]
Since it came up last game, here’s a very well-illustrated page on Movement and Attacks of Opportunity.
– Oriental Adventures – Farscape RPG (or even frigging info on when it comes out) – Tome and Blood sourcebook – Silence and Song sourcebook All of the WEG modules converted to d20.
I haven’t put an entry in here for so long that MT has removed all my other entries — too old. So here’s the Halloween update. I’m leaving for Portland tomorrow for Amber Con North West (ACNW). The con runs 3.5 days, and while I participate in a con or gameday almost every month, this […]
Added a new Shapeshifter class to the d20 Amber Basic Character Classes. I really like how that guy turned out. Also, tweaked ranger and got rid of Druid. Things still to do: I figured out the rules for making Trumps (needs more detail), but not the rules on how to use them. Extension of this: […]
Updates to the Amber d20 pages. Specifically, did some work on the character classes, notably Ranger. Started the painful process of eliminating non-genre spells from the Magic section. Finished the Feats and skills for Logrus (Probably won’t do the non-canon powers for a long while, especially since my favorite power (Twilight) can be done more […]
Yeah, you read that right. I finished up the rules for running Amber using the d20 system.
I just found my free round-trip flight voucher that expires at the end of the year, and tonight is the last official deadline day to register for AmberCon Northwest. Hmmm… I need to rattle Simone’s cage and see if there’s still room.
