  1. Etiquettely Challenged Versus Etiquettely Wonderful


    Etiquettely Challenged

    I read some gaming horror stories so I guess I will add to it. as a gamer, whenever I go to someone else’s home, I obey their house rules and always bring something to share. Since one of the games I attend has long sessions, I typically buy a bag of burgers for everyone.

    Since things are a little tight this month, I baked chicken nuggets and brought them to the game. The host asked what brand they were so I told her. For the next five ...

  2. Play Test Campaign Completed

    Last night we completed the 5 set series Beryl Summer Games series. A near pure combat arena style fighting scenario. We tested the lowest to the highest challenge levels and all sorts of styles, techniques, and abilities - all combat related. Lots of stuff broken and easily cracked. Lots to update - but most of it outside the core rules for the Incarna Game System.

  5. An Apology and Correction...

    First, to anyone who has read my Draining Magic blogs, I apologize, as I discovered to my dismay that in Part 2, I posted my system for an alternate spell casting system for which I have not worked out all of the bugs as of yet.

    Here is what I came up with, something which has worked out well so far in the limited playtests I have done.
