    Helgrond sniffs the food for spoilage or other toxins, out of habit of living on the road, but finding nothing untoward, makes short work of liberal helpings of food, especially after such a harrowing and mentally taxing outing. "I do not like many people around," remarks the half-ogre...

    So, one of our very own PPG members, Pruttm, has got his supers adventure, Evilution Unchained, for Champions Complete/HERO Games, up for sale on RPGNow. Most of the art used in it is mine, so I'm doubly proud for him and myself also. Since this is my personal blog here, I'm going to crow about it...

    So... I don't... what am I supposed to do? I mean I will try to play in the live game, but I mean in pbp, whether I play or not, I'm not sure what to do. You've had pbp and a live session and we're still in the inn? I mean is that the plot to start, the inn has a lot of stuff in it, or there's a...

    So I'm not super clear on all this. So the forum is the in-between of the play by post stuff, with the same characters? Or...? I don't know what to do to move the pbp along past going to bed or whatever? Is that the idea of the live game?

    Hi everybody, this is a free game download you can try, whether you give me feedback or not, and thank you for your time either way. I've designed a quick-play team vs. team dice-and-stats game, adapted from Star Trek: The Next Generation's fictional combat sport called Parrises Squares. Two...

    Helgrond raises a hamfist to scratch a thick furrowed brow, then to his wild red-brown sideburns as he considers the lady Leiptr's words. "You take one share... and give two each to each else of this company? Perhaps being already noble-born yourself, wealth is less a concern, but still that...

    Yes the lists of traits and cliches and templates. Just something I might try to get to, just "work in progress" stuff.

    That all sounds pretty good Pepsi! I wonder though, so using a Finisher is not just a free 1 die DP cliche, but automatically also gives you one special effect - including an extra die. It is already a free cliche you can pump for 3 dice total for the cost of 1, and you can essentially make it a 4...

    Helgrond, head partly bowed, swings his gaze from the lady to the soldier to the militia, taking in the visuals and the corporal's words, as well as Leiptr's own bit of lore. Was it true? She seemed genuine, but they were already bluffing the guard in tandem. He could not be that careless to assume...

About Me
Real Name:
Jason J. Patterson (JP)
Biography:
Early 40s male, 3/32 Cherokee, have run tabletop, forum and chat games; Warhammer FRP2E, CoC and Feng Shui, Savage Worlds, Chill. Enjoy reading RPG.NET etc. Prefer online. Not D&D/D20 fan.

General Overview:
I enjoy rules-lite to rules-medium games; not necessarily "hack and slash", but cinematic and active when possible, both as a player and as a GM, cool is the rule - the more awesome, the better - implausible but applause-worthy stunts are terrific!

While I like players to feel free to do stunts and come up with big ideas, they need to share the spotlight with each other, and ALSO to remember there IS a plot/story backdrop to play against and solve also, and obstacles to overcome. The GM puts the obstacles and plot there FOR the players and their characters, for those characters to demonstrate their best qualities, whatever the players feel those are, however the players play them. The adventures are ABOUT the characters, because they are the ones DOING them, but their goal, is about whatever the objective of the adventure is.

What percentage of my games are RP vs Combat? 50%/50%? What do the other GM's say? I really want to win that car. Seriously though, what do you consider RP? Climbing a mountain or sneaking into a castle past the guards? Besting a wizard in a battle of wits? Winning a debate with the mayor, charming the princess, convincing the townsfolk not to lynch the witch? Planning out your next route to the Forbidden Mines? The amount of combat and RP is really mostly up to the players, so I can only say 50/50 because I can't really predict what will happen.

I'm not fond of fiddly rules, lots of fluff, convoluted restrictions and monotonous tactical quibbling - I like cool narrative and clever ideas - those win out every time.

The Path of Solomon Kane, Season Six - Play by Post Savage Worlds Campaign

by jpatterson on 01-28-2014 at 11:03 AM
I've been forced to adapt my Savage Worlds Solomon Kane campaign to play-by-post for the immediate future, until some offline issues "settle down" a bit for me. I hope I'm able to conduct it entertainingly and consistently for my players.

My plan is to conclude "The Lion of Ninn" adventure/plot point/scenario/story arc, and then see if there is interest in continuing into the further "episodes" of Season Six via play by post, or if my players would rather
