    OSR [PbtA] Ironsworn PbP - Interest Check

    I think so. I like the fact that it is classless. That said, based on just the 45 basic assets, there are 14,000+ combinations. Even if 90% are suboptimal, that still leaves 1400 variations. But the real appeal is the way the game engine is designed drive the narrative progression. I am going...

    OSR [PbtA] Ironsworn PbP - Interest Check

    So, some looks. No real interest. I did have a run at the system in solo mode. I went with the Kore: Kingdom of Harmony option to see how the game re-skins. I thought it worked quite well. For those who might be curious I will post the character and game run sheet below. thotd

    OSR [PbtA] Ironsworn PbP - Interest Check

    It has been a while. Quite a while. But recently I have found myself circling around the idea of starting another game. It would go a little like this ... The System Ironsworn is a rules lite, low magic fantasy Powered by the Apocalypse (PbtA)[1] game. Very rules lite. And very...

    EN World Temporary Interruption of Services

    I'm dropping off the grid for a couple of weeks. The usual stuff, nothing exciting. But rather than this drip feed posting I have been managing recently, I am just going to cut it away for a bit. Hopefully not more than a couple of weeks. I will let you know if that changes. To my GMs (Isida...

    Deconstructing the Construct

    Is there any way of filtering Messageboard Golum threads? I have become a bit of a fan of the All Discussion forum. Most of my time is taken up running my PbP games or updating PbP games I am in. However, when I get a moment to spare, or am busy procrastinating, I like to check into the All...

    5E Movie and TV show inspiration for 5E games

    I watched the movie Snow White and the Huntsman recently. I am sure that I have seen it before (parts of it seemed familiar) but I didn't really remember it. While parts of it were a little heavy handed (the entry into Sanctuary and the coronation off the top of my head) overall I thought that...

    Associated Wiki pages for Groups not working

    I have three groups and the associated wiki function is working for none of them. Two of the groups have what appears to be an associated wiki (its there on the group page), but it cannot be edited (you don't have permission to access this page), nor can new pages be created (it allows you to...

    IC - Mad King's Monkey II

    Day Five - Early Morning, somewhere in the City Jan is able to obtain a scruffy old non-descript cloak from one (rather pleased) stranger for a mere half dozen silver pieces and his own, much finer cloak. Diplomacy roll made. Epic fail :devil: The trail of stars (starting at the smokey...

    E.N. World Wiki: Questions and bug reports!

    I found this at the bottom of some page while looking for some guidance on use of the wiki. (it wasn't much help. In fact, it was almost unreadable). I noticed later, however, that it is not at the bottom of all (or even most) Enworld pages. In fact, the You do not have permission to access...
