    5E Orion Black No Longer a D&D Designer [UPDATED!]

    I've never worked in the game industry, but corporate is still a related thing. There have been some odd things I've seen happen, that just seem a little off until you get more info on them, then you figure out they're completely messed up. It happens, and it happens right in front of people...

    Studio Cerca Is An Anime-Themed RPG Company From Carbon 2185 Creator

    Looks like he corrected the name, but didn't make any comments about it. (Until others pointed it out) That's simply fixing an error without drawing attention to it, pretty much the opposite of making fun of it. I'd consider that being helpful, especially if someone tried to do a right click...

    Free Stuff During The Pandemic!

    Got an email with even more stuff, this time from "Up To Four Players". They've got a webcomic that goes over playing some games. (Great into to a system.) Their Savage Worlds strip was played in their own setting, Crystal Hearts. A kickstarter made it available for everyone, and right now...

    There's A Tales From The Loop Boxed Starter Set Coming

    "...five regenerated characters ..." Normally I'd think that was a typo of "pregenerated", but considering the source, I'm not going to bet on it.

    3E/3.5 D&D 3E Design: The Unbalanced Cleric

    I've been in plenty of games with Barbarian PCs. I've never seen one attack the party due to a berserker rage. Someone stealing something from them, sure, but not a rage. As to clerics, their religion is supposed to moderate their actions. I think I've seen 2 campaigns where the GMs even...

    Sketch #1: Polearm Shop

    I heard a couple of things that don't usually fall into the "polearms" category. But it is probably the most varied and confusing category, even for scholars I've been told.

    WOIN Monty Python’s killer rabbit

    In comparison to the one in Monty Python, yes, it's way beyond that ones ability. It also doesn't seem to have the usual vulnerability to Holy and to Explosions. Still, it's not a requirement to try and duplicate the inspiration source exactly ;) Back in the 80s, the club had a video jukebox...

    Shadowrun Sixth World Core Rulebook Released - Pre-Orders for Print Open

    Nope. Back in the late 80s, 1st Printing, 1st Edition, FASA. We ordered it in the shops Preorders for new products coming out soon. A lot of gamers around here thought the idea of mixing magic with sci-fi, especially cyberpunk, was strange. I'm one of those old schoolers that remember back when...

    Shadowrun Sixth World Core Rulebook Released - Pre-Orders for Print Open

    Abstruse, No, it was the launch week, so it couldn't be the 2nd printing, unless the first shipment had two different printings in it. The color plates were kind of in the middle, and they weren't part of the page number sequence. I don't remember if they were even listed in the Table of...

    Shadowrun Sixth World Core Rulebook Released - Pre-Orders for Print Open

    I think I want it. Loved the 1st edition. Played so much my book fell apart. Literally. First the spine came off, then the bindings wore out and broke then pages started falling out. Unfortunately it got lost in a move. The way I normally take care of books, people were often shocked. Most of...

    PF2E Here's The Official Pathfinder 2E Character Sheet

    I was actually thinking the cluttered page filled with tons of boxes that seem rather arcane (and not in a magical way) will just spook a lot of potential players. Heck, I'm already a Pathfinder player, and that page looks rather intimidating in a bad way as it is now. It looks like just too...

    PF2E Here's The Official Pathfinder 2E Character Sheet

    Ummm.... I suspect that character sheet alone will scare people away from the game.

    5E WotC's Nathan Stewart Teases New D&D Setting Book in 2019

    Seems rather mean to tease Spelljammer fans like that. But they keep teasing us, so either they're masochists, or they actually are planning to revive Spelljammer, just not yet. I won't rule out both ;)
