    RPG Print News – Chaosium, Hero Games, and More

    Thanks, this has a lot of info on the time. I like research and really dug into the literature and the historical records to get the mood down. If you like Hero Games stuff, I am currently updating and expanding the classic setting Justice Inc. It is time those domino masked crimefighters of the...

    D&D 5E I guess Jon Schindehette out. Bad news for D&D NEXT?

    I don't know if Next is going to crash and burn but I think that the Hasbro umbrella and talent not being able to work on any projects which are not related to D&D without some problems has more to do with this. When Jon says "Additionally, I’m looking for a position that allows me to pursue...

    Cohorts WITH ARMIES??? WHAT???

    I think that if the DM is comfortable with this then half the work is done. The other half of the work is are the other players comfortable with it. What this has the potential to do is make it an incredibly long time between the turns the other players get to take. I know I hate waiting for...

    Tracey Alley - plagiarist

    See that is the rub. The fact that somebody would go on the offensive when caught in the act and threaten legal action or what not. For that there is no coming back. It is sad because this individual probably enjoyed Mystara and I wonder if a Kickstarter to get the license or something would...

    D&D 5E [Warlords] Should D&D be tied to D&D Worlds?

    I have interviewed Mike Mearls several times, seen lots of public and not so playtest material at different stages, provided feedback at different points, and have no reason to believe from any of that different options will not be supported. WotC and the design team are well aware of what the...

    Tracey Alley - plagiarist

    It is unfortunate that this person thought that nobody would notice or that if people did happen to notice wouldn't care. There are a couple of bright spots. The first being that perhaps some new fans of Mystara will be created. It is a great world that is richly detailed and a lot of fun...

    Tabletop Gaming News for Friday, 3 May, 2013 [RPGs have no relation with satanism! Woohoo!; plus Ul

    There is no reason you can't do both. Errr....in game of course, like occult investigators. Yeah, yeah, that's what I meant.

    Ranking Superhero Movies: EN World's Top Ten!

    Something tells me that if you removed the bat, DC Comics would have slim to none in the top ten. Maybe Watchmen. Now have your next poll about animated movies and DC will start knocking around the competition.

    Ranking Superhero Movies: EN World's Top Ten!

    I can keep you busy adding super hero movies if you want but I hate to create work for you. Consider Kick Ass, Dr. Strange 1978, The Phantom, The Shadow, Green Hornet, Nick Fury: Agent of Shield 1989 (David Hasselhoff), Condorman 1981, Sky High, Steel, Meteor Man. I have seen them all, good...

    Ranking Superhero Movies: EN World's Top Ten!

    Did I miss Hellboy or Spawn? Where is the original Swamp Thing?, or the Roger Corman Fantastic Four? Kidding about everything but Hellboy.

    How many RPGs do you own?

    I own a lot because I never throw anything away and think games will have some value in putting together another game in the future. Lots are wishful thinking. Games like Recon, Twilight 2000, and Star Frontiers haven't been touched in more than two decades. I usually am currently...

    How would you RP this character?

    See now that I can understand. I have a couple of those brothers. Half my group is thespian and the other half are combat oriented. Creating a mutual backstory is a good way to help out the DM, so that is a positive. Not every group is the same and it sounds like your group is cool with it...

    How would you RP this character?

    I am more concerned for whoever is running this game and the other players. A character with such a low rating in Charisma will be a hindrance almost all the time, not just to himself but to the party. His low Charisma should cause such a distraction that eventually a large amount of the game...

    [MHR] Marvel RPG Discontinued, PDF sales ending next week

    That is exactly the reason I am saying the system might not have had appeal to some players, a few in my own group for sure. It has appeal to the Watcher because you can tell a good story and to storyteller players for the same reason. The number cruncher type gamer couldn't get a leg up like...

    [MHR] Marvel RPG Discontinued, PDF sales ending next week

    For the Watcher it was a blessing to put a good adventure together. If you could visually picture the character you could quickly and easily build the character. Then again the DM/GM/Watcher in a rpg isn't supposed to want to get over. As a player your goal is survival of your character and...

    [MHR] Marvel RPG Discontinued, PDF sales ending next week

    That was how the original MSHRPG was presented and it was very successful. If you had a style or a comic that you really liked there was a book created for that. I think the fans that pointed out the lack of villains were absolutely spot on especially in the core rulebook which had a list of B...

    [MHR] Marvel RPG Discontinued, PDF sales ending next week

    The license for the Marvel Universe is pricey and the sales didn't justify renewing it. I think that the story arc angle and the game being designed for players to play established and pregenerated Marvel characters is where they guessed wrong. Most players I have ever played any RPG with groan...
