Preview: The Retroverse

Today I have something I have been waiting to look at for quite a while. It is also something I was hoping to be able to direct you towards. Sadly, the Kickstarter has been delayed but the reasons are good. Despite all the work that has been accomplished and how far along this project has gone, there were some simple problems that Chris and Lluis ran into with general logistics of the release. This was manly promised rewards, tenability, and…

Review: North Seat Player’s Primer

Review: North Seat Player’s Primer

Hello everyone! Remember when I was here last week and I had to change up the review? Well, it definitely ended up being the right choice. Today I do not bring you the review of the first book of the North Seat campaign setting. Instead I have the Player’s Primer which is a supplement to go along with the setting and an absolute must if you are going to play North Seat Book 1. I will get into that, but…

There are all kinds of inspiration you can take from those settings for your own and hopefully my brief mentions will…

Libris Monstrum #24: Oni

Good evening everyone! Tonight we have another Twitter-voted creature to add to the Libris Monstrum! This time you asked for the oni and I am rather glad, because these beings have a diverse history at the table. My first interaction with them stems from the original 3rd Edition Monster Manual and moves forward from there. Here I will reveal some of their mythological roots, as well as some of the ways they have evolved in our RPGs since I saw…

Resources For Every GM: Internet Part 11

Resources For Every GM: Internet Part 11

Tonight I have three resources that are, essentially, free. Of course that is true for many of the internet-based resources that I post here. With today’s growing community and access to the internet, it becomes hard not to find new resources. Not all of them are great. Some still need to grow and develop (like me!). Others, though, are really fantastic. Today I try to share with you three of those fantastic online resources to add to your bookmarks. The…

Review: Star Trek Adventures Core Book

Review: Star Trek Adventures Core Book

For today’s review I am taking an opportunity to cover something that has been sitting on my shelf for a couple months now. Unlike a lot of the books there, this one has seen a lot of use. I bought this when I was talking to one of my groups about Star Trek. We thought it would be fun to play in the Star Trek universe, and they are the friends I would be able to easily do that with…

Review: Predation

Review: Predation

Today I have a review of a game that I was very excited for when I first heard about it. Well, it is more of a setting, but it is the one that got me into the Cypher System by Monte Cook Games. That setting is Predation by Shanna Germain and it is freaking awesome. To start let’s discuss a little about the system because I haven’t addressed it directly yet on the blog. Some of you may recognize the…

Have you ever wanted to be the dragon of Dungeons & Dragons? Well wait no longer because I have just the game for you, though its dragons will not look like those greedy red fools from D&D. Today I am reviewing Magpie Games’ Epyllion where you get to be a young dragon trying to make your way in a world of dragons and maybe even going out on some adventures while your scales are still fresh. This game, written by…

Review: Psionics RPG

Review: Psionics RPG

It is a little later than I wanted to have the review out, but I am happy to finally do so! End Transmission Games produced this game and it utilizes a similar system to Splinter. If that name is familiar to you, that’s because we reviewed Splinter earlier this year and if you want to check it out head to this page. It was a ton of fun and if it catches your interest then head here! This time around…
