Star Wars is about conflict. From the Mandalorian Wars to the Rebellion to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, war defines each era, and the characters roles within in them. Galaxy at War is a Star Wars: Saga Edition source book that puts players on the frontlines of these wars, offering new warlike (or wartorn) species, feats and talents, a martial arts prestige class and an arsenal new weapons and vehicles.
I've played through the first Numenra adventure as a player with my Sunday group, and we've just launched into our second full-blown adventure. Meanwhile I'm prepping to run the same introductory adventure for my lunchtime group. I've played Numenera enough to know I like it ... but I don't love it.
Winter is coming. In my house, that means long weekends trapped inside with increasingly crazy, argumentative kids enraged by too many hours fighting over the rules to Uno, Life, and Monopoly.
It's finally here. Months after getting our Numenera books we're finally running our one shot (or maybe double shot) adventure. I think it's safe to say that -- scheduling snags aside -- we're all very excited to play the game.
When I use the #gameday hashtag for my Sunday tweets, it's usually about gaming groups weekly board or RPG sessions. When the rest of the world tweets #gameday, it's usually about football.
I've finally joined their ranks. A few guys at work got together and formed a fantasy football league of eight teams led by web developers, editors, writers, and web designers. We're using ESPN's Fantasy Football tool to manage everything.
These photos could make for some great establishing shots in a Numenera campaign. Never mind that we didn't need to wait a billion years to get something so alien looking... http://science.time.com/2013/10/14/alien-earth-our-planet-from-above/pho...
There was a time when I listened to podcasts, particularly RPG podcasts, religiously. They accompanied me during my home improvement projects, on my walks to work, on long road trips, and even at the gym.
I decided to upgrade my Savage Worlds collection with two new purchases: Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition and Beasts and Barbarians: Golden Edition.
