JP's Iced Tea PBP

This is mostly from the point-of-view from someone who has joined and is active on this site for forum or play-by-post gaming, as I can't guarantee a remotely consistent schedule week in and week out, or the ability to set aside hours of time, etc., so I'm left with pbp. And this is my blog to ramble on about gaming, normal tabletop and pbp, of course.

  1. Visual Building/Room Creation for RPGs: Sweet Home 3D

    Although I posted this on my website, I feel like this is neat enough to reproduce as a blog post here:

    So you'd really like to get a good representation of a building or room for your rpg session, to help immerse the players in their characters' situation? There are a number of ways to do that, but here I am going to tout Sweet Home 3D, a free 3d home design application, available on Windows, Mac and Linux.

  2. "True to Life" Experience in an RPG

    Is it hard to find "realism" or "true to life" experience delivered in an RPG? First - do you want it?

    I think, first of all, it depends on the game you're in, and what expectations you were given, before you joined. If you joined with the promise or idea that it would be "true to life", regardless of what the genre/setting was, then yes, it definitely should be as close to what you expect as possible.

    However, the player also has a lot ...

  4. My Gaming Group

    Although not a game I prefer, this does show me and the majority of my gaming group, including ColdBard, playing Magic: The Gathering, April 11, 2011.

  5. Solomon Kane Chatlog, Session 5

    So I ran Session 5 of Solomon Kane, the first real beginnings for the Wanderers, on a definite beginning of a quest to find their destinies. I'm... not sure what I think. I forgot to save Session 4. I'm certain this adventure should have only been 1 session long, but it's going to run 3 (hope to GOD it doesn't exceed that, or I've done something horribly, horribly wrong) - and no combat in it so far. I feel like I've failed somewhere, very badly, but the players that stuck around seemed to have ...
