  1. Birthright: Family Matters

    Saturday, January 5, 2013

    (After playing the Birthright scenario “Family Matters” Friday (Jan. 4) with Jeff Smith, Stephen Turner, and Erik Huffine from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.)

    Shaemes Whitestaff was a young lad of 17 who had been content in his role as minor noble in the country of Aerenwe, at least until the current regent, Liliene Swordwraith, died in the early spring of the year 551 Michaeline. It was little less than a month later when it was determined that he was the ...

For example, I don't feel there's much that would be offered by the myriad of fantasy RPGs that seem to come out every year. I have ...

  4. Its hard to go back

    So I have been playing Pathfinder and SR4A for awhile now and I was rereading the rules from 3.5 and SR3.

  5. Maybe running a game ... (part 2)

    by , 11-03-2012 at 11:40 AM (Inside lives a goblin that feeds on indecision.)
    We ended up creating characters for Tunnels & Trolls, and I ran them through The Dungeon of the Rat, a new-ish GM adventure from RPGNow.

    Then real life intervened. We've met twice in as many months, both times to run Dragon Age. It's an interesting system and an interesting world, but I'm not sure whether we'll return to T&T, do DA instead, or what. (Including just drift our separate ways.)

    That got me thinking about another campaign I'd like to get started, ...
