Creighton’s Corner: The First Session

There are two really important sessions in a campaign: the first one and the last one. While all sessions should be fun and enjoyable for all participants, these two are the most important. For now, I’ll constrain myself to talking about the first session; I’ll deal with the last session in a subsequent article.

Ancient Scroll’s Secret Room: No Remorse

Hi there folks. I am in a killing mood, so we’re back to talking about “killing” in RPGs…

Often players will decide to take the role (class, profession, etc) of a killer (assassin, night blade, etc.) with a very simple concept. I am an extremely skilled person with extremely powerful abilities I can use to . . . → Read More: Ancient Scroll’s Secret Room: No Remorse

Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 27-APR-2012

Another week has zipped by… Where does the time go? No gaming this weekend unfortunately, but I gamed last weekend so I really can’t complain much. Every two or three weeks seems to be a good schedule.

Publisher Interview: Patrick Kapera and Alex Flagg of Crafty Games

A few months ago, like setting a message in a bottle, I asked Patrick Kapera and Alex Flagg of Crafty Games if they might answer a few questions. And, like the tides of Earth, the tides of the Internet brought that bottle back to Game Knight Reviews!

The Gassy Gnoll: Rekindling the Improvisational Spirit (Seeking Input)

The Gassy Gnoll has had an on-again, off-again relationship with gaming over the last 12 years. Yes, that’s probably a bit too much like a confession, but I have a point I’ll get to after a bit of history…

Before 2000 I gamed regularly and GMed frequently, but for the next 6 years I was . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Rekindling the Improvisational Spirit (Seeking Input)

Supplement Review: Enemies of NeoExodus: The Folding Circle from LPJ Design

Ever since gamers went online and began publishing their own materials, it’s been truly astounding to see the diversity and creativity of some of those ideas. And when the PDF marketplace went crazy, the floodgates opened up in an almost Darwinian fashion and many small publishing efforts have risen and fallen over the years.

Creighton’s Corner: House Rules

House rules; every campaign has them. Some are minor, representing small tweaks to the game system, while other rework major parts of the rules to better suit the participants’ style and enjoyment. House rules are cool; they let a GM and players stamp their personality on a game and customise it to their hearts’ content.

Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 20-APR-2012

Wow. Another week has zipped on by and Tax Day too! The scary part is that work is actually [gasp] fun! (Yes, we computer-programmer-type-people sometimes have a different grasp on “fun” than other folk. ) However, because work is chugging along I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to work on GKR this . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 20-APR-2012

Guest Post: The World’s Most Popular Classic Board Games from Jonny Devine

The birth of the computer chip and video games may have put a dampener on the sales of the classic ‘play-with-the-whole-family’ board game, but as that retro-esque feel comes back into prominence the appeal for the old-school board game that was so popular in the 20th century gains continued re-emergence.

Here’s a list that should . . . → Read More: Guest Post: The World’s Most Popular Classic Board Games from Jonny Devine
