    Dragon Reflections #55

    The cover art reminds me of old point and click adventure games like "I have no mouth but I must scream"

    RPG Crowdfunding News – Griffon’s Saddlebag, Tempest, Westlands, and more

    Pledged on Westlands. I have been tinkering with using Cepheus for a more low fantasy game. No magic. Something themed like 16 Ways to Defend a City by K.J. Parker.

    Dragon Reflections 54

    A great cover with what look to me a bit like photo reference or photo clipped faces at the bottom. I wonder whose faces they are? I need to check this issues Bazaar of the bizarre it seems.

    RPG Crowdfunding News – 2023 Quest Calendar, PIRATE BORG, Fragged Empire 2e, and more

    Everything must be Borg'd. At some point Borg will Borg itself and this will be a sure sign that the end is nigh. An RPG inspired by Ghibli. A game where there is no possibility of failure though. I feel that is a niche concept. Also its not like things never go horribly wrong in Ghibli movies...

    Imagine Reflections #2

    Most people aren't. That is kind of my issue with "collaborative storytelling" games and general thought on less-rules-more-better approaches.

    Pathfinder 1E As a player, how do you argue your rules interpretation 1) successfully and 2) without being obnoxious?

    I think this short article from Scott Malthouse on the subject of GMs is pretty good. The GM is just another person at the table and while they are doing more paperwork than everyone else. The players are just as responsible for the experience as the GM. I would like it if everyone GMd and took...

    Pathfinder 1E As a player, how do you argue your rules interpretation 1) successfully and 2) without being obnoxious?

    My interest in making a rules argument is never to get away with anything. It is just as often that I am making the case for a rules interpretation that does not benefit me. If your interest is in, balance, fairness and common sense, then you are more likely to get your argument through. I...

    Podcast #189: The Statistics of RPG Streaming with TrooperSJP

    Arguments against this fear, as in, you don't think White Wolf games suffered from their acquisition, or you think they did suffer?

    Dragon Reflections #52

    I had stumbled upon a website claiming that Lynn Abbey, a great authour in her own right and wife to Robert Aspin who created Thieves World was going to be doing a kickstarter for a new game but that site was dated just before covid and now I can't find it. As someone who has the box set, what...

    Dragon Reflections #52

    Magic was simply done by wishing for things very hard but as stated in the book "If you wish for a rock to strike your enemy, beware the wind storm strong enough to make a rock fly." Magic happened through natural occurrence and manipulation of chance. A wizards spellbook was not lists of spells...

    RPG Print News – Free League, Goodman Games, Columbia Games, and More.

    Harn is such its own thing and feels like a rabbit hole. Its sort of like Jazz for many people. You may know many people enjoy Jazz and whenever you hear Take Five you are delighted, but you also know there is so much more to the genre that, if you leaned in, it may consume you.

    Dragon Reflections #52

    Glad to have another reflections article. There are a few things in this issue I think I want to read. As someone interested in the evolution of rules and the philosophy therein, I want to read this issue's Simulation Corner for sure. Whenever I see C.J. Cherryh's name I am gladdened as she is...

    Free Homeworld Quickstart From Modiphius

    After reading the quickstart I think I will skip this one. 2d20 isn't for me. Carry on.

    D&D 5E Last night I dreamt up a campaign setting... help me flesh it out!

    Mech's + Fantasy are not my thing but, Divine magic drawing undead could because the Diety that is the source of the device magic has the ability to put to rest the zombie hordes souls. Could imply a whole secret reversal thing where the zombies aren't evil actually, just driven to no longer...

    If I hadn't already bought and never played almost everything Osprey had put out in the last two years then I would buy Heirs to Heresy.
