Last year saw an array of family games invade the Geek Tree. This year it's all about the RPGs.
The first two books to hit the Geek Tree's space-and-rockets themed tree skirt were Savage Worlds books that I received for my birthday.
Summer is winding down, which means the chances that my gaming group will have a full gaming session are going up. This week saw six of us get together to continue our Weird Pulp campaign, which had been stalled since June.
I'm back from GenCon 2014. As always it was an exhausting-but-fun four days of gaming, preceded by a few days visiting with my wife's relatives relatives in southern and central Indiana.
After seven years away, I'm going back to GenCon. It's been far too long since I was last there, and even longer since the late 1990s when GenCon was an annual pilgrimage for my gaming group. I'm looking forward to going back.
After a successful playtest of Savage Worlds, my gaming group -- the Blackrazor Guild -- decided to launch a short-to-mid-range Weird Pulp campaign. The campaign began in early Spring 2014, and we're expecting it to run through at least Summer 2014.
Dungeons are the cornerstone of the fantasy RPGs. Even as games become more story-driven, even when we give up slaying the dragon in exchange for founding a kingdom, the lure of the dungeons is still there. This page is dedicated to dungeons in all their impossible glory.
The long-awaited Science Fiction Companion for Savage Worlds and an updated version of the Superpowers Companion are now available for purchase as PDFs, and pre-order for the print editions.
I've wanted to run a pulp weird RPG campaign ever since Chaosium announced their ill-fated Pulp Cthulhu: Reckless Adventures in the 1930s source book back around 2000. It was supposed to be a d20-statted sourcebook for Wizards of the Coast's Call of Cthulhu d20, and it seemed like a natural fit for my Dungeons & Dragons and Call of Cthulhu loving group.
I decided to upgrade my Savage Worlds collection with two new purchases: Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition and Beasts and Barbarians: Golden Edition.
