    I'm guessing that since the game made it out of the Kickstarter stage, and is cranking out new material very actively two years later, people must like it. I bought the main rule book, which is hilarious and awesome. But I haven't had a chance to personally play the game because everyone in my...

    I'm an old school RPGer who learned D&D way back in the 1st edition AD&D days. I'm really interested to try the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, but none of my regular gaming group is really into it. They all prefer 4th edition. And although I'm part of two online-only RPGs, I'd really like to play a...

    Two years later, our online Classic Traveller game is still going. We play every 2 or 3 weeks, on average.

    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...

    Burrai growls under his breath. "No chance now they think we're asleep. Help me Elloral, we wont have long before they realise they can't draw us out. Hurry." 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. (see below) if you will indulge me in explaining a bit? fate in real life really is nothing more than chaos theory. nothing mysterious, religious, or philosophical about it....

    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.

    This sounds good. However I feel we should keep someone behind to follow us to keep an eye out for any followers. Who has the best stealth? Also, I know there is a term that describes the practices of keeping an ally far behind a party to keep an eye out for tails, but I can't think of it. Any...

    I make my players roll LOTS of perception checks... just to keep them on their toes. If you don't, and then, from out of the blue, ask them to roll a check, they suddenly get mega-curious and it ruins any idea of surprise. By making them roll 40-50 a session, they then stay curious... or not... but...

    The websites are great, but my favorite reference is always the local gaming stores. Just ask the geek at the front counter about local groups that play and if there is a gaming bulletin board where the groups advertise for openings in their groups. MANY stores allow gaming IN the store - and...
