Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: Beyond the Ghostlight Reef by Christina Stiles from Kobold Press

What is it about open ended adventures that really makes them work well when they’re done right? Is it the fact that the railroad factor seems to fade into the background and offer less of a way to beat players over the head? Or is it the fact that there are multiple paths and the . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: Beyond the Ghostlight Reef by Christina Stiles from 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: Mysteries of the Dead Side: Sacred Necromancer (PFRPG) from Zombie Sky Press

In Fall 2011, I backed a project from Scott Gable and Zombie Sky Press called Mysteries of the Dead Side: Sacred Necromancer and I kind of forgot about it… Then back in October 2012, I received an early copy (attached to a backer e-mail) of the supplement to take a look at before the final . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Mysteries of the Dead Side: Sacred Necromancer (PFRPG) from Zombie Sky Press

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. And though I love everything from Open Design/Kobold Press, most of the Midgard-based resources have been based on the Pathfinder RPG (and would likely . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: The Defenders of Midgard (4e) by Richard Green & Brian Liberge from Open Design

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

Paizo proved years ago that there’s still life in the D&D 3.5e system when they published the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. So it’s only fitting that other publishers continue to support Paizo’s efforts, continuing to breathe life into one of the most popular role-playing games of today. Rite Publishing has been right there in the mix, . . . → Read More: Magazine Review: Adventure Quarterly, Issue #2 from Rite Publishing

Supplement Review: 100% Crunch: Zombies by Julian Neale from Raging Swan Press

Where are all the pygmy zombies? No offense to anyone with any medical condition causing dwarfism. I’m just wondering where I might find wandering hordes of tiny zombies on a jungle island somewhere waiting for fresh meat to arrive, sort of like a zombie swarm of piranha. (If you’re wondering where my fascination with the . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: 100% Crunch: Zombies by Julian Neale from Raging Swan Press

Supplement Review: So What’s the Zombie Like, Anyway? by Greg Marks from Raging Swan Press

Zombies. What wonderful creatures they are! Dead. Restless. Grotesque. Hungry… And with the success of the graphic novels and subsequent TV series for The Walking Dead I suspect we’ll be enduring zombie hordes for many years to come. I hope that’s the case anyway. I’m a bit of a “zombieholic.” If there’s a book, movie, . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: So What’s the Zombie Like, Anyway? by Greg Marks from Raging Swan Press

Friday Knight News – X-COM Gaming Edition: 12-OCT-2012

Welcome to another Friday and another news roundup!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get lost in games other than tabletop RPGs. Blasphemous, I know. The last one was Skyrim. I lost hours and days playing that. But long before the Elder Scrolls, I was addicted to X-COM: UFO Defense from Microprose. I . . . → Read More: Friday Knight News – X-COM Gaming Edition: 12-OCT-2012
