    Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2022

    Another vote for Marvel Multiverse (Marvel Reveals More Details on Upcoming Tabletop RPG). Is it okay to nominate it since it's just the playtest version coming out in 2022? From everything I'm reading, it sounds like it's going to be a pretty complete game.

    Why Do You Hate An RPG System?

    If I don't like a game for some system-related reason, I just move on to something else. The only games I'd say I "hate" are more games I won't play because I have issues with the designers/publishers. One game line specifically I just won't touch, because of the awful way the current...

    NEED ADVICE: Call of Cthulhu - "Best" Edition For Newcomers and Long Absent Players

    Versions 1-6 are functionally the same system. And there are thousands of copies printed, and available on the secondary market. I'd skip the 7th edition, and just track down a used copy of 5th or 6th. You can probably find one at the usual used book finding places for a fraction of the price of...

    So You've Decided to Run a "Western" Game. What Kind?

    I thought it was interesting how they played the "fool" aspect of the name into the character in the semi-recent Disney film of the Lone Ranger, with Johnny Depp as Tonto. In it (and without spoiling too much) Tonto was played as sort of a trickster character, and as the film progresses we...

    So You've Decided to Run a "Western" Game. What Kind?

    And if the Road Warrior isn't a western cloaked in radioactive fallout, I don't know what is....

    So You've Decided to Run a "Western" Game. What Kind?

    Horror western, for sure. I've been reading the first novel in Death's Head Press' new series of "splatter westerns" (The Magpie Coffin by Wile E. Young, and it's totally got me itching to do something with All Flesh Must Be Eaten's A Fistful O' Zombies book.

    How do you store and carry your dice?

    Two bags. One's just full of D6's for the games I have that use only D6's. The other's got I think four complete sets of polyhedrals in it. The bags are color-coded, so depending on which game I'm playing, I can just grab a bag and go.

    Most Important Questions to Ask at Session 0

    The two most important questions I find, after settling on a genre and system are: What sort of things do you want to do? What do you absolutely not want to do? The second question has helped me more often than the first, TBH. So many times the answer to the first question is vague, like "Oh...

    Who Wants a True Blood RPG?

    Sure, but you'd said previously, and I was replying to: "For that matter, I can't think of a non-setting-tied corebook for either unisystem flavor." From that, I assumed you weren't tying your interest to Cinematic or Classic. If you want a CineUni book without an built-in system, you'd have to...

    Who Wants a True Blood RPG?

    Vampires are in the Mystery Codex book, and Were are in the Abomination Codex. Unfortunately, both those books are long out of print, and hard to find for reasonable prices (though you can sometimes find them on eBay in the $20-$30 range). But if you just want the information, you can get them...

    Who Wants a True Blood RPG?

    AFMBE is probably the closest you're going to get. There's no actual setting in that book, just the implied setting of "A world where the dead eat the living." Which if you squint at it just enough blurs to "gritty horror" without much other inference. I've run a bunch of WitchCraft as a horror...

    Who Wants a True Blood RPG?

    I just last night finished watching season 7 of TB. Love that show. Coincidentally, I've been on a Uniystem kick again myself lately. I'm not super-familiar with the Cinematic Unisystem (I own them all, have read most of them, but never played) but Classic Unisystem seems like it would work...
