Fate Core System

  • 1
Fate Core System: Characters live at the core of Fate! Fate Core is the latest edition of Evil Hat Productions’ popular Fate roleplaying game system. Fate started as a “house rules” project for the Fudge system during a car ride Rob Donoghue and Fred Hicks had back in 2001. After seeing some success with it in their home games, they created a free, downloadable version for anyone who cared to grab it. They figured a few dozen people would have a look. Instead, hundreds did, and it fast became one of the most popular variants of Fudge out there, spawning its own thousands-strong discussion list and eventually helping to launch Evil Hat as a commercial game company.

Lego My Ego

Everyone has an ego, and behind the DM's screen, one's ego can manifest in many different ways. It's not a monster to be slain, but more like a beast to be tamed. Read Lego My Ego on D&D Insider here!

Review of Combat in Motion (Enhanced 4E) by Christopher F. Ash

  • 12
The author's blatant rip-off of WotC's 4E trade dress turns me off right there. I know you "shouldn't judge a book by it's cover", but it's a sign of lazy production, lack of creativity, and lack of understanding of what's okay and not okay when using other's work.

All Lemonade Is Local

  • 4
There exists in this world a designer who is very famous for making a very poor lemon squeezer. In 1990, Philippe Starck made a product resembling the unholy love-child of a sci-fi weapon, a squid, and a half-deflated balloon. He called it the juicy salif, and he was hailed as a design genius for making this completely non-functional item. By any criteria, the juicy salif is a poorly...

Pretty Darn Fun (A look at new PDFs)

  • 1
It is truly amazing the variety and scope that can be found in the PDF market. This week we meander between supplements for player characters, DM resources, setting books, history lessons, old rule sets, adventures and new rule systems. In addition, we run the gamut from science-fiction, near future, a mash-up of western/horror and standard fantasy. Some may say there is a PDF for every rpg...

Experience Point: Level Appropriate Challenges

  • 0
I had to go to the doctor today. Nothing major but I'm having a slight pinched nerve in my neck that is radiating a little pain into my arm. It sucks a little. But then I started to look at my resources and it didn't seem quite as bad. First of all I've got a pretty great doctor. She immediately spotted the fact that using steroids (often prescribed in such situations for their...

In case anyone is wondering, my tune "Pistolero" is specifically a Pathfinder song. It's all about the Gunslinger class. Whee! :cool:

Dealing with High Level PCs

  • 12
Conventional methods of adventure design often don’t work so well with high level characters. Because of the mouse-hitting-the-switch-for-more-food-effect, PCs at higher levels tend to be way overpowered. The average high level character has at least a half dozen powerful abilities, and magic items. So, instead of throwing more orcs at them, here are some strategies to stop your overpowered...

Gamehackery Christmas List

  • 0
Just time for your Cyber Monday shopping, here are some gift ideas for the DM or player on your list. I'm going to try to avoid ideas that will be covered on other lists -- which does not mean that I think giving a gamer a copy of Dungeon Command is a bad idea, just that I think others have it covered pretty well. We'll focus on gadgets, technology, and anything hack-ish. Livescribe pen...
