    This past weekend, Pen & Paper Games underwent a fairly major update to upgrade our forums from vBulletin 3 to vBulletin 4. The newest version of vBulletin brought with it a number of enhancements that are too numerous to even list here, but while we were at it, we put in a few enhancements of our own. I'd like to invite everyone to come check out the new site. As you do, here are some of the changes you can expect ...

    Welcome to the latest and greatest edition of Pen & Paper Games. Unless this is your first visit here, you have no doubt noticed that a lot of things have changed – both in how things look and how they work. In fact, the core engine of our forums have been updated to an entirely new version of vBulletin, and along with that change, we've also packaged a number of improvements of our own.

    Over the next couple days, we'll post an announcement with an itemized list of some of the major changes. Until then, please feel free to poke around. You'll find enhancements in almost every section, including: member profiles, the player registry, the forum page, social groups, blogs, and even the chat room was updated to the most recent version of FlashChat. So, go forth and explore. If you find any problems -- as there are sure to be with any major deployment like this -- please fire off a PM to me and let me know.

    Enjoy!

    Restless Souls comes to the gaming table with the interesting idea of playing a character who is not quite dead and not quite living either. This thirteen page add-on to your d20 or Pathfinder game is an expansion of the Questhaven campaign world by Rite Publishing, but the content within can easily be adapted to just about any fantasy setting. Within its pages, you will find a new template which will transform any (now dead) creature into a restless soul, along with twenty-two new feats and ten new spells. ...

    When I first cracked open Fantasy Craft, I expected to find a rehash of Dungeons and Dragons in some form or another. I was able to keep up this illusion throughout the opening chapter by telling myself that while the classes were different and there were a few unusual races in the lineup, this was still basically the game that I was already familiar with. The further I read, the more I knew that what Crafty Games had put together was actually something very different than ye ole D&D.

    Nestled within its four hundred pages, you will find everything that you need to play the game, including eleven playable races (with a boatload of splinter races), twelve base classes, six expert (prestige) classes, a gallery of NPCs, a bestiary, and all of the rules you will need to start playing the game. Since Fantasy Craft is built on top of the d20 Open Gaming License, the core engine of Fantasy Craft won’t be anything new to anyone who has ever played an OGL game.
