Review on GKR: Brother Ptolemy and the Hidden Kingdom from Nevermet Press

Hi all… In case you missed it on my reviews blog, I wrote about Brother Ptolemy and the Hidden Kingdom over at Game Knight Reviews. Nevermet Press has put together a heck of a setting and adventure that would fit nicely into most of the D&D-based campaigns (4e or 3.5e really, though the book is…

Additions to WR&M for Immortals’ Wake

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been looking at extending the already cool system for Warrior, Rogue, and Mage for my new project. I’m trying to incorporate a few of the concepts we developed for Moebius Adventures as well as some new skills and talents. For example, at character creation time in the base…

Book Review: D-Jumpers Volume #1: A Gate to Adventure from DVOID Systems

When Da’ Vane (Christina Freeman) dropped me a note about the first D-Jumpers product from DVOID Systems, I was definitely intrigued. Da’ Vane is another of the folks going through Yax & Johnn Four’s Gamer Lifestyle Project. She started in April 2010 and in six months has released a book with help from Ouroboros I (Sebastian . . . → Read More: Book Review: D-Jumpers Volume #1: A Gate to Adventure by Da’ Vane of DVOID Systems

Mana from Heaven (WR&M)

For a couple of years now I’ve been whining and moaning about how I’m not a system guy. I’m not. I’ve accepted that. My attempts at system often end up muddled messes that don’t scale well. And that has stymied me a bit as far as Moebius stuff goes. Well, today I ran across a…

Book Review: Martial Flavor – Chaotic Shiny Productions

When you look up the word “martial” in the dictionary, most definitions tend towards the use of a few key adjectives – warrior, warlike, or military. So I’d be lying if I said that the Martial Flavors book from Chaotic Shiny Productions focuses on mostly peaceful people. Most of these cultures could be described as mercenaries, . . . → Read More: Book Review: Martial Flavor – Chaotic Shiny Productions

Book Review: Filling the empty chair by Johnn Four (RoleplayingTips.com)

When you’re in school, it’s easy to find gamers. I remember playing with people in junior high and high school, in college and even immediately after college. But at some point it starts to get difficult. People have jobs and families and other commitments that don’t let them game as often as they’d like. Or maybe . . . → Read More: Book Review: Filling the empty chair by Johnn Four (RoleplayingTips.com)

Book Review: Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 2

When I reviewed Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 1 back in October 2009, I felt it was a monumental and worthwhile compilation of game material from around the blogosphere. Jonathan Jacobs somehow managed to do everything from curating the articles to having the book printed and available. The result was…

RPG Review: Kingdoms of Kalamar: City Map Folio

As a GM, it’s nearly impossible to get by without a few maps. Sure, you can come up with a village on the fly, or maybe a 5-room dungeon, but cities are sometimes tough to design at the drop of a hat. Not only are there landscape concerns, but population, location, general disposition (friendly or…

RPG Review: Sunken Empires by Brandon Hodge

Hi there… Ever since college when I actually started having the extra money to do so, I’ve been drawn to game stores and hunting for unique supplements. Adventures, gazettes, simple collections of maps – each has its own attraction for me. As such, I have ended up with a wide variety of books, pamphlets, and…
