Coyote & Crow Review, Part 2

I’m back today with the second half of my review of Coyote & Crow, the awesome sci-fi RPG written by and inspired by Native Americans. Following up on my first part where I covered the mechanics and setting, today I’m launching into the characters and stories of the game.

Heart Review

A while ago I took a look at the amazing Spire by Rowan, Rook, and Decard. It’s a book about dark elves living under the oppressive rule of high elves in the vertical city of Spire. The follow-up game Heart is about what lies beneath the city. Spoiler alert: it’s nightmares.

Custom Muses for Eclipse Phase 2e

Almost four years ago I put up a post outlining the custom muses that I let my players develop for Eclipse Phase. With the game now in its second edition those rules are outdated but I really want to keep using them. These are my rules for creating custom muses in Eclipse Phase 2e, or really any Artificial Limited Intelligence (ALI). They’re a first draft but this should give you the ability to add custom ALIs of all sorts to your game and make the setting feel more lived-in.

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.

Sample Scion Band as Heroes

When I reviewed the Origin book for Scion Second Edition, I went over character creation separately in a post outlining a sample band of characters. Now that I’ve given my thoughts on Scion: Hero (and the pantheons), I wanted to circle back around and look at that same band of characters at the Hero level. I don’t need as much space to discuss character creation this time around but why not take the time to explore how you step up a character from Origin to Hero and make a brand new character from scratch as well?

Spire Review, Part 1

I’m behind the times here but after hearing about Spire on Character Creation Cast and checking it out, I fell in love enough to get behind the recent Kickstarter. More and more I can’t believe how long this amazing game flew under my radar and so I thought I’d write a belated review in case anyone else out there missed it!

More New Crews for Firefly RPG

It’s been a while since I first posted some crews and ships updated from the Serenity RPG to the Firefly RPG. That original article, though, is something that people have seemed to like and I’m back with some new editions for your enjoyment: the Haphazard and the Huntingdon’s Bolt.

City of Mist – Part 1

The new RPG City of Mist is part of the Powered by the Apocalypse family, a superhero game that blends the definition of the genre into high fantasy. It’s a complicated idea but I’ll get into all of that below as we start our dive head-first into Amít Moshe’s awesome game!
