    Support Your FLGS

    I have always loved Friendly Local Game Stores. I suspect I never would have run my own game sessions without having stumbled into a FLGS a year or so after my initial exposure to D&D. For my Master’s thesis I visited just over 50 game and comic stores in the Greater Toronto Area. With many...

    Character Creation Video (Simple Superheroes)

    So this is a bit of a shameless plug for my Simple Superheroes RPG which I'll be kickstarting this Thursday. But I am seriously interested if anyone has seen similar video's done by Game Designers, particularly about character creation but also game mechanic overviews. Here is the video that I...

    Advice for Running Con Games

    A friend recently asked if I had any advice for running a game at a con. I went on at some length, and shared the whole thing on my blog. Here are the key points: 1. You don't always get a full table. 2. Get a sense of the players familiarity with the RPG you are running (and RPGs in...

    You're Never to Old - Gaming with your Parents

    A few months ago I invited my father, who has just turned 60, and my mother to play a Tabletop Roleplaying Game with me. Neither had ever played such a game before. The game was Simple Superheroes, a game which I designed, developed and wrote. In some circles, there has been a big push to...

    So who else is going to Toronto's FanExpo? I'll be running my Simple Superheroes game on Thursday evening and Friday afternoon. In the Toronto Area Gamers RPG room (I think it is room 703). I'll also be running a AD&D game Sunday afternoon. I missed FanExpo last year, so I'm really...

    Strategy & Tactics Magazine

    So . . . I know a lot about the history of the magazine . . . But how are the wargames that come with it these days. (I've even looked at a couple without the game part at a magazine store and they look neat in terms of the military history.) The price tag is a little heafty for a subscription...

    Blindness/Deafness in AD&D

    So I'm looking through my 1e books and OSRIC and I can't for the life of me find a reference to what actually mechanically happens when someone is blind or deafened. I could certainly infer things on blindness based on invisibility rules. (-4 to hit all opponents and must guess correct...

    Anyone else heading to CanGames in Ottawa this weekend (May 21-23)? I've never been before, but I'm pretty excited about it. Been around since 1977. Anyone gone before? How was the experience?

    Phoenix Stats?

    Has anyone come across any statistics for a Phoenix in 3.0/3.5? I noticed that they have stats for it in OSRIC, and while I could rework it from there, I was wondering if its already been done. Thanks.

    1e MM2 or Fiend Folio

    I found a copy of both for almost the same price (1$ difference) and am planning to pick up one at least. So which do you prefer? Which monsters book do you use more often? (if you have both) Do they have noticeably different flavours? Any particular beasties stand out in either one?

    Writer announcing adventures release?

    Would it be considered appropriate for a writer to announce the release of their adventure in the general forums? I don't think I've seen this done before. Is it convention for writers to not talk about their products until a fan brings it up? And yes the publisher (6d6fireball) has already...

    Why THAC0 Rocks

    There has always been a rhetoric on these boards that discredits THAC0 (To Hit Armour Class 0) as being by far inferior to BAB (Base Attack Bonus). Posters state this as a matter of course, saying things like the adjustement to BAB (from THAC0) was so inherently logical that it is stunning that...
