    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...

    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...

Not wanting caught up in a mess with some stranger, but wanting less yet another encounter with fidgety, xenophobic guards, the ogre sighed as he steeled himself for...

Should be open to playing multiple game systems, and willing to try new ones.
About Me
Biography:
Been playing for a little over 30 years, starting with D&D (you know, the boxed sets where you had to fill in the numbers on the dice with a crayon? Remember, kids?) Prefer making my own adventures and campaigns, customizing to fit my group. Never use modules. I have a big oak table with room for me and up to six players, right near my RPG library. And wouldn't mind sitting on the other side of the screen once in a while.

Signature


I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.

New Games and Old

by Dalkiel on 12-25-2012 at 02:38 PM
I've played a fair number of RPGs. I've got the books for dozens of different games, and tend to be a completest when I decide to add a game to the group repertoire. But with the huge number of games on the shelf, and the wide range of genres they represent, it's becoming rarer that I stumble on a game (new or old) that I feel brings anything new to the table. For example, I don't feel there's much that would be offered by the myriad of fantasy RPGs that seem to come out every year. I have

The Loss of a Good Friend and Fellow Gamer...

by Dalkiel on 10-27-2012 at 02:41 PM
We got quite the shock this past Friday. We had assembled for the weekly game, getting ready to play, and were waiting on one player, a fellow named Dave. We didn't think much about it at the time. The player was always at least on time, usually early. We also were aware of a large deployment of power company vehicles along his route, and expected he might have hit traffic and/or turned around to use an alternate route. But after an hour passed we started to worry, and I called his house number

The Reluctant Gamer

by Dalkiel on 02-20-2012 at 10:08 PM
I've been noticing more and more that gamers tend to focus on one game, and one game only. They may be a fan of literature or movies that span several genres (Fantasy, SciFi, Cyberpunk, Post Apocalypse, etc) but will only play one genre. And sometimes these players will go so far as to dismiss, or express disgust over, the other genres in context of gaming. Players and GMs alike find themselves frustrated when confronted with a gamer like this, and find themselves equally at a loss in finding a
