Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: The Raven’s Call by Wolfgang Baur and Kobold Press

First level adventures are always a tricky thing to pull off. Do you go easy on a new wave of heroes? Do you smack the new heroes around a bit? Do you up the ante and make it possible for a TPK?

Well, honestly I think all of those possibilities are up to the combination . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: The Raven’s Call by Wolfgang Baur and Kobold Press

Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: To the Edge of the World by Wolfgang Baur and Open Design

The concept of a flat earth is one that has often teased my creative spirit to write about. There’s just something about the idea of finding an edge to the world and sailing off that offers tons of fodder for my overactive imagination. Questions abound such as “Is it always ocean?” “What’s over the edge?” . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: To the Edge of the World by Wolfgang Baur and Open Design

Supplement Review: The Defenders of Midgard (4e) by Richard Green & Brian Liberge from Open Design

Sure, I read tons of articles and books for RPGs across the spectrum of theme, setting, and system, but for the last couple of years I’ve mostly been playing D&D 4e.

Supplement Review: Journeys to the West by Christina Stiles and Open Design, Part I

Supplement Review: Divine Favor: The Paladin (PFRPG) by Stefen Styrsky for Open Design

Paladins were always a bit of a strange beast when I was playing a ton of D&D as a kid. The idea of a “holy warrior” who exists as the embodiment of law and goodness was nice and all, but very difficult to play – especially when you’re a “tween” exploring the concepts of true . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Divine Favor: The Paladin (PFRPG) by Stefen Styrsky for Open Design

Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming (7-DEC-2012)

Yes, I’m a bit behind on these. My apologies. Unfortunately the stomach flu knocked everybody at my house out for a few days. Thankfully, we have all rebounded nicely. ๐Ÿ™‚

That said, it’s time for some new links don’t you think?!

Supplement Review: Midgard Campaign Setting by Wolfgang Baur and the Open Design team, Part 3

As I continue my journey into Midgard reading the Midgard Campaign Setting, Chapter 3 suggests that I need to explore what it means to be at a “Crossroads.” A few such crossroads in history come to mind, such as the ancient cities of Rome and Constantinople. There’s the mythological connotation of a crossroads representing someplace . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Midgard Campaign Setting by Wolfgang Baur and the Open Design team, Part 3

Supplement Review: Monsters of Sin 4: Lust by Ryan Costello, Jr. for Open Design

Each of the seven sins unlocks one of the doors most members of the civilized world try to keep closed. Sometimes all it takes is a taste, a glance, or a touch however and the rational mind flies out any open window, leaving behind our baser, animal natures. Though a little sin may make a . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Monsters of Sin 4: Lust by Ryan Costello, Jr. for Open Design

Supplement Review: Midgard Campaign Setting by Wolfgang Baur and the Open Design team, Part 2

Slowly I’m working my way through my review pile… But one book I started recently is going to require a few trips before I’m done. (For part 1 of the review, check here.)
