  1. English for RPGs – Part 10

    OK. I've been away from the computer for a while (I'll explain that somewhere else.) and have had time to accumulate about a hundred of these pairs, so, unless there's an awful lot of repetition, it'll take a few instalments to get them all done.

    I'm going to break from the RPG sources briefly and start with a TV commercial that has been bothering me for some months now. At one point in the commercial, they show two plates of pasta side-by-side. The one on the left has one little fibre ...

  2. Extended absence

    Well, I haven't been around here for some time.

  4. The Road to War: Session 3

    After the unfortunate bridge incident the PC's decide to push on despite the damage the trap inflicted.

    They enter the outer bailey of the ruined castle. Before them lies the ruins of an ancient town that once thrived within the castle walls. All that survives now though are a few ruined buildings, piles of rubble and the back half of the old church. The entire scene is covered by several inches of snow and the cold north wind drives snow into the faces of the PC's. Numerous sets of ...

    Review – Pathfinder Chronicles – Seeker of Secrets


    Well here I am, back again for another review of Pathfinder products. This time I have the pleasure of reviewing a smaller product. An issue of the Chronicle series called “Seeker of Secrets”. This issue deals with the Pathfinder Organization itself. The information in this book will give you a lengthy description as to its rank structure, rules & tenets, recruiting methods and its current status in all of the different ...
