Friday Links, December 4, 2009

Another week of awesome posts in the gaming blog community means I’m back with a new list of links for Friday! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving (if they celebrated) and is looking forward to some happy holidays. Winter has finally arrived in Colorado (with most of this week spent near zero degrees fahrenheit), so…

Need Feedback – Where do we go from here?

Sorry I’ve been a bit lacking in the posts arena lately. I’ve been doing a great deal of thinking about how to move forward. With the great, constructive feedback from the October 2009 playtest session of the Moebius Adventures system, it became painfully clear it was time to rethink things. Each player at that session…

World: [Immortals’ Wake] The Nameless One and His Path of Destruction

In the Immortals’ Wake world, there is a character simply known as The Nameless One. For more than 2,000 years, he has roamed through populated and unpopulated areas, leaving a wake of destruction and bewilderment behind him. His is an extreme case of what I will call the “Road to Redemption.” Unfortunately for him, it’s…

Friday Links for October 30, 2009

Hey all… Yes, I’m a bit late this week. Sorry about that. First ugly cold of autumn for me and work has been keeping me busy. That didn’t stop a whole mess of people coming up with some interesting articles to keep us all thinking about gaming. 🙂 We’ll get the list started off this…

Review: Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 1 Edited by Jonathan Jacobs

Hi all… As my contribution to the RPG Gamer Network’s Small Press Week, here’s my review of Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 1. As a lifetime player and gamemaster of tabletop roleplaying games (RPGs), I’m constantly amazed at the amount of passion, knowledge, and depth of other members of this…

Friday Links for October 16, 2009

Hi all… Once again, the RPG community presents not only creative ideas, but thought-provoking material that crosses genres and systems. I’m always impressed by the collective knowledge in the RPG blogosphere and this week was no different. Hopefully I can finish a couple of posts over the weekend about my own take on morality in…

Friday Links for October 9, 2009 (a day early)

Hi all! I’m going to be gone tomorrow, so I thought I’d post my Friday Links a day early. Yes, it might warp the time-space continuum, but oh well. No worse than the large hadron collider. 🙂 Unique Tavern Encounters from the Bard of Valiant. You know when you read the first thing in a…

Five (Plus One) Questions for Players to Answer for a Character

All of this discussion of finding that emotional bond with a character in a campaign brought up something I was discussing a while back with Mike (forged). There are questionnaires all over the ‘net for fleshing out a character, but that only gets you so far. I was reading an issue of SciFi Magazine a…

Player-Character Bonds… How do YOU find an emotional bond with your character?

Funny little story… This past weekend, the gaming group I’ve been playing with decided it was time to put the sandbox campaign we’d been playing on hold and start something new in November. At the heart of the decision was the fact that the campaign just never “clicked” for everybody involved (two players and the…

Friday Links for September 25, 2009

I’ve been a silent member of the community for quite a while now, but now that I’m active again, I thought it would be helpful to re-link to posts from the week that I found thought provoking or useful. So starting today, I’m starting a “Friday Links” post tradition. This will basically gather all the…
