My holiday season was filled with about a dozen showings of My Little Pony: A New Generation thanks to the enduring love of that movie by Little Grue. It’s a fantastic film and even though I sometimes lie awake at night hearing the dialogue on loop in my head, I was inspired to make some more characters for your My Little Pony game.Continue reading “More New My Little Pony Characters”
Today I have a new playbook for your Wanderhome game: the Havenmaker. I designed the Havenmaker as part of a “playbook jam” over on the Discord with a prompt of “the forest” and I started to imagine a kith wandering the forests of Hæth and building little cairns for small gods to live in. The idea grew from there and I’m pretty proud of where it ended up.Continue reading “The Havenmaker Playbook”
In case you don’t follow kids media like me and all the other parents in lockdown, you might have missed that there’s a new My Little Pony movie out! Netflix launched My Little Pony: A New Generation last month and my kiddos won’t stop talking about it. Since they also like the Tails of Equestria RPG I thought I’d take some time to create the characters of this new film for your home game and mine.Continue reading “My Little Pony: A New Generation”
A while ago I posted some crews for the Firefly RPG using the Cortex system. I plan to talk about the new, consolidated version of the Cortex system soon but someone recently went back to those earlier posts to say that they wanted even more! On top of that, reader Kevin Jones had long ago mentioned that the crew of the Betty from Alien: Resurrection would make a good Firefly crew and at long last here is my take on it!Continue reading “Alien Resurrection Crew”
Today I’m here to talk about Wanderhome, the wonderful and beautiful game from Possum Creek Games. During this, the darkest timeline, this game has been a therapeutic tool that keeps me going, often as a solo game on my own. I’ve written about some options for playing solo games before but today I want to talk about specific tools for Wanderhome.Continue reading “Solo Worksheets for Wanderhome”
I hope I haven’t made a secret how much I love the City of Mist game. It’s really great, an excellent mesh of crunch and freeform mechanics, plus you get to do things like send a hardbitten detective with a staff made of Christmas up against a punk rock Gretel and her gingerbread zombies. True story.
I have a bonus Thursday post today to make sure everyone who’s interested checks out the City of Mist Bundle of Holding absolutely everything you’d need to get started (core books, starter characters, intro case, location maps) for under $20. That’s almost 25% of the normal price for these things. If you pay a little more you can get three more cases, three plot-hook-filled district sourcebooks, expanded character options, and an awesome soundtrack for just under $32. That’s about 30% of what all of this would normally cost. And on top of all that, ten percent of the money from this goes to pandemic relief funds and I don’t know about you but I’m beyond ready for relief from this pandemic.
Check it out if you’re interested and check back here next week for more City of Mist content!
This isn’t exactly cutting edge gaming but the A Song of Ice and Fire RPG remains one of my favorite games out there. Recently, Green Ronin put out a settingless version of the game system as Sword Chronicle which made me think about it again recently.Continue reading “Digging Up A Song of Ice and Fire RPG”
One thing that I didn’t spend a lot of time on in my Wanderhome review was the “small and forgotten gods” of the setting. On the one hand, they’re small spirits that add a “Studio Ghibli” vibe to the game. On the other hand, they’re a really endearing part of Wanderhome that deserves some extra attention.Continue reading “Small and Forgotten Gods Generator”
It’s time for another edition of Faces of Satyrine! The first time I did this, I looked to the work of Tony DiTerlizzi whose Planescape work made it not much of a stretch to get to Satyrine. Today I’m looking at another fantasy illustrator whose work is instantly recognizable: Wayne Reynolds.Continue reading “Faces of Satyrine: Wayne Reynolds”
