    I like the looks on my players' faces when they go looking for "Tomorrowland", and it just can't be found... until someone starts researching and discovers that there is a local place called "Kentucky" that, in the language of the Old Ones (TM), translates as "Land of Tomorrow". (it really does...

    And for mapping hints: get some topographical maps from the interweb and print them out - go to a place like Office Depot or similar to get big, poster sized ones (should cost less than $5 for one good black and white poster). Then choose an elevation marker - and starting at the existing...

    http://translate.google.com is the bestestest tool out there for exactly the reasons Tesral listed - you type in ONE word (or a series) and you can get about 30 different foreign words for it/them. And what's REALLY cool is the little speaker icon underneath the translated words. Click on it and...

    What about the mass damage for a first level character? 1d6 hitting two out of every three attacks, all day long, never running out of blasts? Wow. I'll give it a whirl, though.

    A CR3+ against a 2nd level party? I would hope they got their butts kicked - that SHOULD have been a TPK or close to it. Wow.

    Falin, actually almost all of my problems with 3.5 went away with Pathfinder - and 3.5 destroyed almost all my problems with 2.0 (I skipped 3.0). I went from a 3" binder of house rules to about 3 pages with 3.5, and now I'm down to about a half-dozen "rules" I kept (killed familiars hurt casters,...

    nijineko replied to a thread [Gear (General)] Deceptively useless Magical "Artifacts" in Campaign Resources
    Of course, there is always the list of "cursed" items which grant large bonuses that reverse upon the performance of a particular action, which certain clever players go to great lengths to avoid said actions, leading to certain hillarious sequences in game.

    Malruhn replied to a thread [Gear (General)] Deceptively useless Magical "Artifacts" in Campaign Resources
    Indeed! I remember racing into battle with "cursed" versions of my character's main weapon in hand - to "trip" and drop it accidentally as I was almost engaging the enemy. Invariably, one of the folks in the enemy party would pick it up and attempt to use it against us. (insert insane giggling...

    Mr. Al Gore - THANK YOU for inventing the internet. Stupidly simple problems have been vexing me, and because of your invention, people on the other side of the country have been able to lend their assistance! Okay, from Word, I was able to export my Primer as a .pdf - and went from 40mb in a...

    Did you know there is a Dresden Game now! I heard about it in a forum. Thanks for pointing that series out. I love it. I am only on book 4 of the series. But I won't stop till I am done with them all. Really great story

    I came to see if there was an actual picture of you on here. I figured with your fondness of pictures and quotes and general use of google you would have one. I was apparently wrong. Nice Zoo and Snowy pics though.

    Hey, thought I'd drop by and say hi. Was thinking about sending you a buddy request - just got one myself so I thought I'd pass along the positive vibes and to be honest I truly look forward to reading your posts. C-ya and thanks!

About Me
Real Name:
Sascha
Biography:
I started with Palladium games, flirted briefly with (A)DnD and Gurps in pre-high school, and found Dark Conspiracy and the World of Darkness in high school.

These days, I tend towards actiony-adventure games, with pulp and/or anime trappings. Low grit, high gloss rules ;)

Dirty Hippie Gamer Musing: "What Is Roleplaying?" and Gaming Styles

by Sascha on 04-08-2011 at 10:32 PM
I sat down this morning to read through Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness for a pseudoreview retrospective, made it past the table of contents easily and with no offenses taken at the authorial tone ... and then came to the first real page, where Erick Wujcik proceeded to annoy me as a reader. (To be fair, there's more than likely some Kevin Siembieda in those initial paragraphs, as some of the content is - typical for Palladium products - reproduced verbatim in the other game

Wherein I Read Star Wars D6, Second Edition

by Sascha on 03-06-2011 at 08:32 PM
As a kid practically raised on Star Wars (and other pop culture media experiences, often produced by George Lucas), this game was a staple of my formative roleplaying years. During the short window of sixth- and eighth-grades, my gaming lexicon consisted of Palladium's games, Rules Cyclopedia D&D, and Star Wars. Pretty much in that order, too. I have changed in the two decades since first picking up a bucket of dice and pretending to be a Jedi-in-training, so I figured I'd take a second look

The Dresden Files RPG: Kickback City

by Sascha on 02-03-2011 at 01:38 PM
A quick summary of our Dresden Files game, up to the latest session.

Washington, D.C.: "Kickback City"

- Themes (Aspect): Entrenched political groups make it difficult to enact change (Us vs. Them)
- Threats (Aspect): Growing dissatisfaction calls the underprivileged to action (What About the People?); New powers make plays for established territory (Small Time, For Now).

Roll-Playing, Rule-Playing

by Sascha on 10-25-2010 at 12:24 PM
Normally in these blog posts, I try to get cute and dance around the point with humorous language. I'm not going to do that here.

These terms - derogatory descriptions of other peoples' fun - aren't helping. They aren't speaking to truth, they aren't adding to the quality of discourse. They're divisive language, whose sole purpose is to draw lines in the sand as to who belongs and who doesn't. Play style differences are absolutely *not* justification for disrespect, and treating another's

Wherein I Read the Dresden Files RPG

by Sascha on 08-15-2010 at 11:36 PM
It's just about time for the start of the fall semester, and I decided to give myself a back-to-school treat, in the form of the Dresden Files RPG pdfs. (I wish I could have afforded the physical hardcovers, but alas. There's always the various gift-giving holidays~)

The usual background info: The Dresden Files is easily my favorite series centered on a wizard named "Harry," and fighting hard with the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy 'trilogy' as my favorite book series overall.
