    Worlds of Design: “All About Me” RPGs (Part 2)

    Ah yes, the semi-military style of role-playing was forged in the trenches of the World Wars and had nothing to do with the fact that the first role-playing games emerged out of wargaming, and furthermore millennials bad, in this essay I will

    BESM d20 - I think I'm in love

    I'm also intrigued by this game, because it would give me a perfect set of rules to run a Final Fantasy style game.

    Looking for a standard 3.5 games

    No problem. I wasn't too keen on starting a game, more on playing in one myself. So, GuiltPuppy can take it from here. :)

    Looking for a standard 3.5 games

    I too would be happy to join such a game. I would even be prepared to run a game if it came to that. A word of warning, though: my campaigns tend to be rather cliche and full of combat. Is that a problem?

    Wasn't the Golem originally a part of a Hebrew legend?

    Have you played D&D in a foreign language?

    I live in Finland, and even though our games have mostly been in Finnish, there are also smatters of English, German, Swedish, and French tossed around the table. I've also played in a dominantly English campaign because one of the players was German and didn't understand English, and some of...

    Animate Objects as a Wizard Spell

    No reason other than the fact that the spell apparently uses positive energy to animate the object. But then again, many Wizard spells from the school of Necromancy use negative energy, so why shouldn't Wizards be capable of using positive energy too?

    Fuzzy Knights... who saw it coming?

    Bravo, Mossfoot! I'm a real fan of Fuzzy Knights, and I have to say that this turn of events caught me completely unawares! Can't wait to have more!

    The In Character Character Game: Part III

    "Yeah, I guess you're right." Patrik says, and starts to relax for a bit. He grabs some dog-bird food from his bag and tries to feed the little pup... or chick in his arms.

    Which D&D "cow" is least sacred?

    I voted for Tolkeinesque races. I mean, this cow isn't really sacred any more, they've thrown the poor bovine in the barbecue. With each edition of D&D the über-elves of Tolkien have slowly turned to the prancing ninnies they are nowadays (they weren't really über to begin with, really), the...

    D20 Menace Manual - Is it worth buying?

    I know what you mean. At one point I was actually wondering how I could bring Darksouls (people who have been possessed by a demon and left insane after the demon left) from Mordheim to D&D, and when I was looking at the d20 Menace Manual I stumbled upon the Maniac template! Perfect! :D Some of...

    D20 Menace Manual - Is it worth buying?

    I'll have to agree with mostly everything posted here. The Menace Manual has been my best gaming investment for a long time. Because of it I'm actually tempted to drop my current D&D 3.5 campaign in favor of a d20 Modern campaign. :D

    [Recruiting] Urban Arcana PBP

    As for insights into running PbP games... well, I wouldn't know, really, since I haven't ran one myself. But a few quick tips: first of all, be descriptive. When running a tabletop game you might be tempted to rush along with descriptions because you really don't have that much time to spend on...

    The In Character Character Game: Part III

    Patrik follows the rest of the group, gently cradling the little bird puppy in his arms. "So, if we're heading to Wonderland... well, we might as well switch the logical part of our brains off." he remarks jokingly.

    [Recruiting] Urban Arcana PBP

    Nor me, kind of. Well, I've played in Kitana Vorr's In Character game before, and I can post on a daily basis as long as I can kick my own butt to the forums every day. :D Still room for one more?

    Famous characters in your gaming group.

    Well, a character from a campaign we recently started... Tiny, the Ogre Intelligence 3. He's funny to play. When I usually play people talk to me and say things like "Hey, have your cleric heal my character, will you?" but when I'm playing Tiny people always say "I tell Tiny that we're going...
