    Pathfinder 1E Current Pathfinder Players: Are you considering switching over to D&D 5E?

    No, I don't trust WOTC (as owned by Hasbro) to be good stewards of the hobby. It is simple as that.

    Anyone know anything about: The "Spark Roleplaying Game".

    Guess I was looking for positive or negative opinions! I just did a scan of your blog posting on the game. I saw your Tribes 8 influence (a game I never played). Any influence from Amber Diceless RPG? p.s. Heading over to buy in now...

    Anyone know anything about: The "Spark Roleplaying Game".

    I was just browsing kickstarting and this caught my eye. This only has three hours left so it is unlikely that many people will see this before it expires. It fits in nicely with my style of play. My games tend to borrow...

    Pathfinder 1E So far not impressed with Pathfinder

    Our game has 8 players around the table. We agreed to drop all classes that have companions, extra critters and the leadership feat. The whole point is that it can get slow with that many players and keeping the number of entities that a player is responsible for can speed things up. We...

    Finding a very old alignment test.

    In the days of the bulletin boards there was an alignment test in DOS .exe format floating around. Due to its length and intricacy it seems to have been written by a philosophy major. If it wasn't written by a philosophy major the underpinning of test was tied to a philosophers attempt to...

    Dave Arneson's Personal RPG Collection For Auction

    I've been in contact with the curator at the "Edwin and Terry Murray Collection of Role-Playing Games" and they have expressed an interest in the personal notes and correspondence that is in the collection. "We are especially interested, as I said, in the unique and rare materials in the...

    Looking for new RPG

    I've run the mouse guard RPG for my kids: Role Playing Game | Mouseguard I've also run the cat warriors RPG: Warrior Cats RPG Both are very rules light. My kids were much more interested in the stories and the journeys than anything to do with the rules. The other 'selling' point for my...

    If D&D didn't exist

    I think folks are under estimating the chances of the RPGs that came after D&D. For example, RuneQuest was published in 1978 but if you look at how the game came about there are similarities to D&D. D&D evolved from the 1974 Chainmail rules and in fact the earliest edition relied on Chainmail...

    Dungeon graffiti

    I would expect the development of a set of pictograms very similar to the hobo signs, especially for well known dungeons. Even if you don't like them for dungeons an entrance to the darklands might be another place to use dungeon pictograms. WEBSITES\HOBOPAGE\hobosigns

    MasterBot for Dungeon Tiles?

    Has anyone here experimented with using MasterBot ( a new consumer-grade, desktop-size 3-D printer) for creating dungeon tiles? I'm tempted to spend the money and started trying in out myself. Dungeon Tiles for Miniatures Gaming by Telvin_3d - Thingiverse...

    A semi-brief history of D&D and some other RPGs: 1980-1989

    Cthulu and Pendragon mentioned but not RuneQuest. You mention Cthulhu and Pendragon but no mention of RuneQuest. There should be some mention of RuneQuest and the purchase by Avalon Hill of the RuneQuest system. Ysgarran.

    Firefox says EN World is an attack site?

    Make sure all of your browser plug-ins are up to date. Not keeping Adobe flash up to date is a good way to get burned by a virus. I'm paranoid and fired up a windows virtual machine before ignoring the google virus warning.

    Crazy Plot Changes for a Song of Ice and Fire Game

    I like this idea the best. It breaks the story wide open. You could even make the players contenders for the throne. Robert has the strength for the throne but he obviously doesn't have the temperament for governance. You can always play around with the seasons and move the coming of...

    What do you like in your RPG?

    I was reading an article in the New York Times today and they made a statement about what makes for good science fiction: In my personal experience, my favorite RPGs have also provided a metaphor to explore real-life issues. I was curious how many folks would agree with the statement that...
