    TSR TSR Is Back.... Again!

    Well, actually I'm exactly 50. I made myself older in the post. 😀 Yes, with all respect for Ward and Gygax Jr., that nostalgia boat has sailed around a decade ago.

    TSR TSR Is Back.... Again!

    Gamer in his 50's here. I too find the whole operation very sad. It's not clear at all what are they supposed to bring back exactly from the good old days that has not already been brought back by the countless of "old school" rpgs that came out in the last decade or so, and they honestly do not...

    Rivers of London RPG: An Interview

    The versions you mention are complex, but BRP can be very simple. This is the BRP core rules: Game Rules (Online SRD) – Basic Roleplaying An it's very, very simple. Call of Cthulhu (any edition) is also a version of BRP, and it's very simple. From what Lynne Hardy says, I get the impression...

    Playtest Review of the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set

    My experience with the CoC7 starter set as an long time CoC player new to the 7th edition. Alone against the Flames. Played it two times, barely surviving. It is short but very atmospheric. Liked it a lot. A great way to learn how the new edition work. I have run Paper Chase for my son and he...

    Enemy Within Part One: Enemy in Shadows - A Review

    Not a very informative review. It would be nice to know how much it deviates from the two original adventures it packs together (Mistaken Identity and Shadows over Bogenhafen). Being a "director's cut" one would like to know what has been changed. Also, the review makes it seem that the whole...

    D&D General Gamer Stats From White Dwarf in the 80s

    Chaosium. It was based on their BRP system. Pretty cool game.

    D&D 4E [4E] DDI down?

    Now, it's ok for me as well. When I posted I had checked with http://www.isitdownrightnow.com and it said it was down so, I think it wasn't just me. I'm happy it was just a temporary glitch.

    D&D 4E [4E] DDI down?

    It seems that ddi.wizards.com is down right now. I hope it is just temporary because I have an active subscription until November. :(

    [4E] Leveling down monsters. Any issues?

    Sometimes a monster has a very cool concept but it is not the right level for your players. I'm interested in particular in leveling down monsters. I play in the heroic tier only and there are many cool higher level monsters I'd rarely have a chance to use. With the Monster Builder (or even...

    D&D 4E [4E] Dungeon Delve: worth getting?

    Yep. That seems pretty reasonable, thanks. Yeah, probably Undermountain would be more interesting to have.

    D&D 4E [4E] Dungeon Delve: worth getting?

    I can buy the Dungeon Delve book for a reasonable price. Is it worth getting? Just to give a bit of background, I am a very late convert to 4E, which I initially despised. I came onboard with Essentials (I'm probably one of the 3 people that were convinced by the Essentials marketing...
