Character Pitches for City of Mist

Today, I’ve got a few websites that I’ve taken to consulting for City of Mist inspiration. The Fairytale Wiki and Mythology Wiki aren’t perfect, but they do have one feature that makes them great for this purpose: the Random Page option. It’s at the top under “Explore” and it’s a great way to cast around for ideas for your City of Mist campaign. I hit that button two times for each wiki and here’s what I came up with.

Alignment Alternatives

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about D&D 5e. I love the edition and, of course, Dungeons & Dragons is a pinnacle of the hobby but there are somethings about it that I just don’t love. One of those is the alignment system which I find a little strained and not something that actually achieves what it means to. I don’t ever think it’s in the way of the game (Lawful Stupid and Chaotic Dumb situations aside) but there are definitely ways it could be improved. Here are some brainstorming efforts at achieving just that!

The Expanse RPG Review, Part 1

Today I’m going to be talking about a product that I helped to Kickstart and finally got a chance to read through in earnest. The Expanse is an amazing story that I got into through the fantastic Amazon series, then followed up that first season by reading every one of the novels. It’s an awesome series and Green Ronin has really done a great job of making it into a game. You can get The Expanse RPG Quickstart on Drivethru now but if you want to know what’s in the full product, then read on!

Lonely Mountain Region Guide Review

The latest supplement for Adventures in Middle-earth is here and just in time. Don’t tell my players but I’ve been looking for some extra treasure and threats to throw at them in my AME campaign. Let’s take a look at what awaits in this book and what makes it different from other supplements in this line.

Ongoing Kickstarters to Jump On

Today I’m going to do something slightly self-serving, but also to spread the word about some awesome projects. There are always tons of Kickstarter projects going on and I know that I hate it when I miss out on ones that I would have loved to back. Today I’m going to tell you about three that I’m currently backing and why. Maybe you’ll jump on too!

Star Trek Adventures Role Cards

A few weeks ago, I wrote about character roles in Star Trek Adventures and added a few more to supplement some of the roles in various sourcebooks. These were meant to showcase some of the roles seen in Star Trek shows and in fandom (especially the Starfleet Marine Corps which I love). Today, I’ve got a new tool for you to use at your table.

Throwback Thursday: Family Gaming

Something near and dear to my heart is gaming that includes kids. This is entirely self-serving as I have two kids at home and I’d like to grow up gaming with them. RPGs are for everyone and that includes young players, though that also covers those who don’t want to play a bloodthirsty vampire or a violent warrior. Here you’ll find some of the posts I’ve made about games that fit that mold, games that you can play with the whole family!

CAPERS Noir with Craig Campbell

Today I’m pleased to bring you another interview with the fantastic, personable Craig Campbell of Nerdburger Games. I’ve talked to Craig before when his awesome superheroes-and-gangsters game CAPERS was dropping and it has been really well received by gamers. It did well enough that he considered Kickstarting a supplement and it’s a good thing he did because it’s going wild!

More Roles for Star Trek Adventures

One thing I really like about Star Trek Adventures is the structure of the party. Roleplaying games use a lot of different frameworks for linking players together (something I’ve written about a little) but having a crew in Star Trek is a powerful tool, especially as it gives everyone something that they excel at.

Throwback Thursday: Dark Storytelling

March is a stressful month for me job-wise so I’ve decided to give myself a break on Thursdays and also give some prompts for you, the readers! Today I’m going to be looking at some of the past posts I’ve written about creepy, scary games. Check them out if you missed them, if you forgotten about them, or even if you just want to give them another looksy.
