  1. The laws of physics in fantasy role-playing games

    There are really two considerations that need to be balanced here. The first is, the game has to be believable to some degree. You are asking your players to suspend their disbelief. The best games are immersive, believable, and realistic to a point. Usually the realism focuses more on the characters you create within the game and their reactions to the players.

  2. Solo Adventures

    For those folks who play in a small group and are hard-pressed to find an adventure to fit their size, I will be adding the adventures I'm making for my son to this blog. We will be starting this week in the town of Fallcrest (thank you very much Dungeon Master's Guide), and we will be exploring in and around the area of the Nentir vale going forward. Enjoy!

    I never got the whole "Why do it when there is someone more powerful" argument. That's not how real life works, and I'd wager, many of the people making the remark have they themselves started from nothing, and moved up in a company, or their chosen field.

  5. Pen and dice RPG Techniques for 3D RP

    A project is underway to create a set of techniques for the application of APOCalypse 2500 a books and dice RPG in an electronic 3D chat environment. Since the game will not be played in a custom environment the goal is to come up with some processes by which GM's can administer rules, tell stories, and present visually satisfying encounters.
