    Well, the rum thing is easy... I can put three ounces in a glass with a couple of ice cubes and sip on it for four or five hours. And it's YUMMY! That's an interesting twist with using the caster as the "translation tool" for the verse - and it makes sense. I may have to incorporate that......

    Here's a general Fantasy RPG question... Imagine, if you will, a spell that allows insta-translation of spoken word (for D&D folk: Tongues). Do spells like these translate literally, or do they allow for "fudge factor" for meanings and inflection? Should it make allowances for thinks like the...

    In my campaign, I add historical realism... for festivals and stuff, if you weren't the wife of a noble, odds are that you were prostituting yourself to make extra money... and this went down to young teen daughters. For fantasy campaigns, depending on where you are located in my campaign world,...

    1) The GM (or player who created said puzzle) will select a trait that embodies the difficulty of the puzzle and layer in references to said trait and supporting references into the puzzle's description for noetic weight. Jpat reviews his character's traits and picks the one he feels will most...

    the conflict resolution mechanic? well, it is a tertiary mechanic in order to provide a method of resolving deadlocks and ties to the primary method, noetic combat. i have been recently contemplating making it a quaternary mechanic so as to provide a greater focus on the purposed intent of the...

    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:
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.
