    Is The One Ring 2E Kickstarter going to break the records?

    To be honest, The One Ring is so mainstream an IP that I was surprised they felt it necessary to Kickstart it at all. They could have sold heaps just with a pre-order.

    Jon Peterson: Does System Matter?

    Yeah, it’s not just the rules. It’s the premise that sells me more than anything. I can forgive messy rules to a degree, if the core idea of what the game is about is compelling in itself.

    Jon Peterson: Does System Matter?

    I think it is obvious that certain mechanics and rules play out in a particular way to give flavor to a game. However, I also think there are a lot of games where system actually doesn’t matter that much, and the familiarity a group has for a particular system is sometimes more advantageous in...

    Renegade Game Studios Takes Over World of Darkness

    Yep, just keep trying to bore the opponent to death. If you keep saying things long enough, eh? Great tactics.

    Renegade Game Studios Takes Over World of Darkness

    Well done for not leaving it a couple of weeks before your next response, but I don’t know if you can read the subtle hints: nobody cares what you think on the matter any more. It is boring.

    Renegade Game Studios Takes Over World of Darkness

    You still talking? I don’t care whether you think it’s a false claim - then onus is on you to provide evidence for your claims, not the other way round. You cannot, because you made it up in your head. And yes, you precisely did say that the game was supposed to be played the way which you...

    The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2021

    It is confusing. This is my best explanation: White Wolf, owned by Paradox entertainment, released Vampire: the Masquerade 5th edition in 2018 to some fanfare - it was the most anticipated game of 2018 here on ENWorld. Modiphius was White Wolf’s distributer, while there was Third Party support...

    Precisely, my thoughts. Although my shirts need ironing.

    The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2021

    Thing about Werewolf 5 is that it could be interesting to see if they use a Hunger Dice type of mechanic for Rage. Like previous editions of Vampire, one of my criticisms was the way in which Blood points worked. They were basically just power points that you had to replenish from time to time...

    Sounds like he has found his market - but it’s not necessarily the market that votes on this site.

    The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2021

    The Dune game is more about intrigue than out and out adventure. Your characters are either Architects (strategists) or Agents of a particular House. You can play both simultaneously, potentially, in a scenario set up that way (with alternating scenes). The players can collectively design a...

    My Gaming Goals for 2021

    My primary goal is to keep the groups going that I’ve got, and try to establish some sort of local club at the school I teach in. I already run a Chess Club, and used to do the Adventurers League as a DM, so my issue is marketing to a degree. My playing goals is to finish the current campaign I...

    The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2021

    Ok. Our group played it as is, but we felt it got a bit complicated with the meta currencies. There are three of them: Momentum - the player group pool, which starts at zero and has a maximum of 6. Threat - the GM/NPC pool, which starts at two per player. Determination - An individual score...

    The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2021

    Well, I have played/ran the playtest/intro scenario. I think our group might play a modified version of the game in time, but we do have a Call of Cthulhu campaign to finish, a Vampire game in the offing and also a Traveller game planned. So many games, so little time.

    The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2021

    The answer, outside of the background lore which has precisely the same appeal to sci-fi fans as Middle Earth has to fantasy fans, lies in the proposed Troupe style play. That is, you can play the game at different levels - possibly co-currently, with two sets of characters - where you devise...

    The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2021

    Good list. My three picks were in it (Pendragon, The One Ring and Twilight: 2000), although I am also anticipating some other games (Everway 2nd Ed) not on the list, deliberately didn’t pick Dune because I picked it last year, and am still interested in Werewolf: The Apocalypse to see how it...

    [VOTING IS OVER!] Vote For The Most Anticipated RPG of 2021!

    Not gloating about it. However, Pendragon is a significant game for many and, as with any game that has a 35+ year history behind it, it has had plenty of time to build a following. The reason it probably isn't played at conferences much is because it is a game that is mostly played with long...

    It’s also a game that is based on a foundation text of Western fantasy literature and mythology, listed as one the 100 best hobby games of all time (as compiled by industry experts via Green Ronin publications), that has earned GAMA Hall of Fame status, an Origins award for best rules, featuring...
