A while ago Monte Cook Games came out with a revised version of the Cypher System Rulebook and I’ve been taking my time going through it. As always it’s a beautiful product, but does it actual improve the game! The answer is a qualified yes, but read on to see for yourself.Continue reading “Review of the Revised Cypher System Rulebook”
Happy end of the year, everyone! I’m busy with family stuff now and you likely are too. I just wanted to say thanks for reading and invite you to take some time to try out new games. Whether you take the opportunity to run some games for kids in your family (like No Thank You, Evil! or My Little Pony) or you try out a new game for the holidays (like City of Mist or Good Society). If you’ve enjoyed hearing about Invisible Sun this year, you might also check out Monte Cook’s holiday gift of $5 to offset the cost of it. Then start the new year with a new game!
Regardless of how you spend it (gaming or, you know, something lame) have fun and be safe!
There’s a lot of ground already covered with this spaceframe project but still so much to go! Eventually we’ll be getting into the more obscure Star Trek Online ship classes that will be unrecognizable to folks who have never played that game. But that’s not today. Today we’re looking at some classes from the shows and movies that have some exciting options!Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Advanced Escorts and Assault Cruisers”
Pigsmoke is a Powered by the Apocalypse game that… well frankly that I didn’t understand reading the blurbs. It looked intriguing and I kept seeing it suggested, but I also found it impossible to pin down even digging into it a little bit. If you’re in that boat, or if this review is the first time you’ve heard of Pigsmoke but you’re willing to stick around, then allow me to say why you should check this game out.Continue reading “Pigsmoke Review”
I’m back today with another Egyptian-inspired crossover for the Chronicles of Darkness. Excited about the inclusion of other supernatural templates in the upcoming Mummy: The Curse Second Edition I dusted off my crossover ideas for vampires and mummies last time. This time I’m back looking at werewolves and it gets pretty interesting y’all.Continue reading “Mummy & Werewolf: The Udja-sen”
This one’s a little out of order because… Well, because I got a little mixed up. Anyways, we’re taking a step back from the Galaxy and Intrepid classes last time and looking at the Tier 3 ships for Commander-level characters. There are some classics in here so let’s dive right in!Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Federation Cruisers for Commanders”
I’m back today with more spaceframes inspired by Star Trek Online, these ones variants of two of the most iconic starship designs in the Star Trek universe: the Galaxy class from The Next Generation and the Intrepid class from Voyager. These are some impressive spaceframes already that have seen a lot of use in games that I’ve played in, but today I bring you some innovative variants for use in your Star Trek Adventures game!Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Galaxy and Intrepid Variants”
When I reviewed the regency-era RPG Good Society, I was pretty complementary. One thing I didn’t get into at the time, though, is that Storybrewers have a whole wonderful series of expansions planned for the game that stretch and explore what it can be. Today I’m taking a look at the swashbuckling expansion of flashing blades and masked identities: Sense, Sensibility, & Swordsmanship.Continue reading “Sense, Sensibility, & Swordsmanship Review”
