    Kickstarter Examiner Article on Forming Kickstarter RPG Category

    Actually, I was on today looking at the final bits of the Hillfolk kickstarter and noticed that it is labeled as table-top games. I don't think that is sufficient for my needs, though.

    What I'd like to see in an RPG - Scalability in combat

    I love the focus 4E has on flavorful, detailed combats with lots of character abilities, focus on terrain, etc. as obstacles, and long combats with lots of choices. I feel this version of D&D captures this the best. It fits the feel of important combats. On the other hand, I am attracted to...

    Have the WotC's pre-4E online Dungeon magazines disappeared?

    I went looking for these after I lost the spot I was storing my online magazines. Have the archives been trimmed so only the 4E articles are online, or am I missing them?

    Hasbro quote on MtG

    I was reading a recent article on the ICV2 website. It was talking about how MtG's success was a bright spot on a not so great quarter. There was an interesting quote about Hasbro's take on WotC's management and why MtG has gained in the marketplace. Now, I know some here would find this...

    Adventures with great bases for characters

    In a few other threads there are discussions about what makes a great adventure. One thing that was made clear to me is that part of the appeal of the classic Keep on the Borderlands and Village of Hommlet is the fact that they have strong bases for the characters. What other adventures have...

    How levels define D&D

    I have been reading a lot of discussion lately about certain problems people have in their D&D, things they want to change to make it fit their preferences with style, and even some discussions about what D&D is "about." Thinking about my experience in other RPGs (which is pretty extensive...

    4E Class Survivor - Round 15 (To determine the final 3)

    Note that I am calling the previous round a little bit early, as it appears to be insurmountable in the remaining time. The race looked like it might be close early on, but the barbarian is voted off and is quite angry about it. The results of this round will determine the final 3. Will there...

    Best pulp RPG game

    I have always had a soft spot for the heroic pulp fiction of the Shadow, Doc Savage, Tarzan, the Avenger, etc. Justice, Inc. started my path in pulp roleplaying, and it carried over to the fantasy pulp of Eberron (still planning my "Doc Savage and Eberron" campaign in my mind). However, I just...

    4E Class Survivor - Round 12

    The Druid wandered off into his grove the last round. We are down to 7, and closing in on the top 5. There is a clear favorite this round, based on previous round's voting. However, we have seen some surprises as there are more votes shifting when a class gets eliminated. Who will be...

    Has Scott's replacement been announced?

    I have been a bit out-of-touch the last week or so. I know Scott Rouse announced his last day, and it has passed. Have we heard anything about his replacement? I would be very surprised if such an important position was left vacant.
