  1. Converting 3.x to HERO: got to start somewhere (spells and certain core concepts)

    SOOO, I like to have a pet project sometimes. I WAS working on a board game, but kind of stuck on that right now, so I decided to pick up converting D&D 3.x/pathfinder material to HERO.

    I really like HERO. I like its mechanics, and I loves its versatility. One thing I really DON'T like about 3.x. I hate you have to be level 20 to get X ability. It would be nice if I could get it when I want it (assuming I can afford it).

    As such, I am converting SOME of the ...

  2. M.A.R. Barker, creator of Tekumel, dead at age 82

    Press Release: http://tekumelfoundation.org/PressRe...-1929-2012.pdf

    Professor Muhammad Abd-al-Rahman Barker created the world of Tekumel, also known as The Empire of the Petal Throne. I was saddened to find out that he died at his home on Friday.

    Tekumel remains one of the most unique settings for rpgs yet devised. First published in 1974, it also is one of the earliest. Its Meso-American, Indian, and Middle Eastern influences stand in contrast to the overwhelming ...

  3. FF HERO: reinstatement

    It has been a long while since I have posted anything.

    Mainly, haven't had much to say.

    However, now I have me a new party for my FF HERO campaign, so I thought I'd post summaries of that game.

    Now we started from the beginning rather than from where I last left off. So it is interesting to see how they approach the adventure.

    Instead of posting EVERYTHING that has happened, I will just introduce our new characters.

  4. Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth.....Introductio n

    by , 03-08-2012 at 11:58 AM (cplmac's campaign logs & blogs)
    (as taken from the Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth game module by Gary Gygax. I have added the chest with items donated by the March of Bissel as well as the wagon and two horses and the barrels with two weeks feed for the horses.)


    Your party has been gathered by agents of the Margrave of the March of Bissel. He tells you that there are "political considerations," which he does not explain, that prevent him from searching for Iggwilv's trove himself. However, it is vital ...

  5. Misogyny, Gamers, and Girls

    I will say it once.

    There exists gamers out there who are misogynist pigs. They are horrible people, and I am sorry for anyone (male or female) who has been off-put by their behavior.

    That said, using those bad examples of breeding to judge the rest of us males isn't exactly endearing. I have run campaigns with female players, played in campaigns with female players, and I'm pretty sure I could roleplay a female character without her being a cardboard cut-out, or a sex ...
