Space is a big place. It can hold a lot of stuff. And as such, be a difficult thing to wrangle for a science fiction roleplaying game campaign. Where do you start? Where do you end? How do you get a handle on content of potentially galactic proportions?

Might I recommend Mindjammer from Sarah Newton?

Game Fodder: Mindmapping Encounters

Every GM has a different way of composing the different parts of a campaign. Typically I start with world design and cut the PCs loose to see where they end up. My process involves a lot of improvisation, which was fun and kept both me and my players on our toes.

The Gassy Gnoll: Random, Deep, Spacey Thoughts

That’s right, the Gnoll is going random on your… web page. Blame it on too much sun, not enough sleep, and a dream where gnolls are playing soccer something similar to Michael J. Fox in Teen Wolf. Obviously I picked the wrong week to cut back on caffeine.

Game Review: Quantum Flux by Kieran Kowalski from 6d6 RPG

Though I don’t read much sci-fi these days, I’m still a big fan of films in the genre. Sprinkle in some horror and I’ll probably go see it if the trailer looks good enough. The golden standard is of course Ridley Scott‘s 1979 masterpiece Alien, and though many films have attempted to achieve the same . . . → Read More: Game Review: Quantum Flux by Kieran Kowalski from 6d6 RPG

Fiction Review: Stories in the Ether, Issue 1 from Nevermet Press

In an age when the eBook is gaining ground, I wonder why I don’t read more short fiction. I read plenty of fantasy and science fiction novels (usually 25-30 every year) and have even thrown in some Steampunk into the mix recently, but only rarely pick up anthologies of short fiction.
