    I have been running sandbox style campaigns since before the term existed, so I can identify. While there may be some game masters so poorly skilled as to use fate as a form of railroading, there are many, many skilled game masters who have used it and continue to use it as part of the sandbox...

    Fate is a palpable universal force in the Narnia Chronicles and in Lord of the Rings, two of the greatest literary fantasies of the modern English-speaking world. Neither Lewis nor Tolkien were writing about chaos theory, about the sum total of choices, or anything of the sort. They were writing...

He glances at the door; the chair he wedged beneath the struts still holds firm. No one yet has tested the heavy latches locking the wooden...

    Your potion heals Palenrian 11 damage, and seems to do him much good as the worst of his wounds stop bleeding. However, the Vulkyrie's horn and the great BOOM at the bottom of the dungeon has ensured the alarm has been raised. You see several more Vulkyrie appear as silhouettes and shadows in some...

    I am teaching some Japanese families English. For the adult learners, I made a simple board game with a little RPG element. They have little experience of fantasy or board games- they didn't know monopoly. I teach them twice a month. My material expense -fortunately I have a lot of books and...

    ah, well. i was serious, and i meant what i said. nor does my statement in any way invalidate most genres of game play.

    That's fine, I don't mind it, we're just trying to get something for the summer to be honest. I have looked at their site, but I'm not particularly sure on how the site works to ask about it. I'm also not a U of I student, but the other player is. I don't really think I'm interested in...

    Hello, I would be interested, but I'm probably moving in a couple months. If that's not a problem, great! Another resource is It is the UofI's roleplaying RSO, but they have loads of folks not actually going to the university that join in on games. They typically meet in the...

    Nice post, Mythus. I enjoyed reading this. I felt that I got more info and enjoyment out of the comment section tho. I will be the first to admit, almost everyone who finds a system they truly enjoy, becomes a fanboy for that particular system, at least to some extent. Which is why i tossed...

    Hi Umiushi, I am confirming for the 4-May Memories Remain game. Right now, I'm unable to confirm for the 18-May game, as I currently have a schedule conflict. It's possible it might clear up over the next few days, and if it does, I'll make a note here. But for now, assume I'll be absent. --T

    It turns out that Rogur and Varis both have a Stealth of 11. Rogur can lag the main party a few squares behind and to one side, so if there is any pursuit, he'd be able to spot them. We hope. And I've heard of the tactic you describe, Malk0lm, but I can't put a name to it just now.
