    D&D 5E Humans, am I missing something? And what's up with half-elf skill bonus?

    I've looked over the races section and even with the optional rules for humans they don't seem to line up with the other races. What is the benefit to playing human? Also where is the half-elf getting their second bonus skill? So where are they getting those skills? It almost seems like the...

    Where's the News from Gencon?

    I'm surprised by the lack of news from Gencon. Usually there are some game announcements and such that seep out during the week and then everyone compiles them the week after. I've seen no real signs of anyone talking about new product announcements. Were there no major announcements this...

    Reign of the Accursed - New Horror Game

    Discovered this in my news feed today. I haven't heard anything about this company nor their pending Kickstarter game: Reign of the Accursed. Somewhere I saw a comment about it as "what vampires would be like if written by H.P. Lovecraft." Overall the game...

    Numenera is Getting Sexy and More

    Don't know if anyone else on here has seen the recent post on Facebook from Monte's camp. I'm not surprised by this release though I wonder if it is a little to early in the game's development to release.

    Please Help Identify a Book

    I was reading the comment thread for the Metamorphosis Alpha Kickstarter when I followed a link to a Twitter post by Jamie Chambers mentioning he had a rough copy of the game on display at his booth at a con. I'll stay out of the whole debacle related to the MA as I don't feel like discussing...

    Ring Side Report- Review of the Numenera RPG

    Pretty good review overall. It should be clarified that the XP cards are optional and anything may be used to represent XP in the game, i.e. poker chips, M&Ms, coins, whatever. Another point about XP and GM Intrusion is that if the players refuse to allow the intrusion they have to spend XP to...

You can find out more about the system adaptions here. The...

    The Quest for the "One True System" Is It a Myth or Something More?

    I was reading the latest thread about Savage Worlds when I saw reference to the “One True System” by the original poster. This got me thinking about my own quest for said mythic legend. I find it interesting that eventually almost every gamer seems to start down this path, looking for one...

    Anyone else finding Easter eggs while reading the book?

    Looks like Monte has hidden some Easter eggs within Numenera. I believe I've found a couple paying homage to D&D. The first is a play off of the Rod of Seven Parts but only in the nature of the quest to find all The Seven Pyramids. It says in the book that for some unknown reason they were...
