Best System for a Rick and Morty RPG

It's nice when companies release licensed RPGs.  The books are not only games in themselves, but are usually full of cool art and background information on the franchises you love.  Put simply, they are often celebrations of the subject matter.   The thing is, you often don't need a whole new RPG system to run games… Continue reading Best System for a Rick and Morty RPG

There’s Something to be said for Unsullied Plans

I'm working away on some notes, NPCs, locations and the like for my upcoming Dresden Files RPG campaign.  I love this part of being a GM.  I really enjoy plotting out what I want to happen and how to bring each of my players into the fold.  I like sitting down at the table, knowing… Continue reading There’s Something to be said for Unsullied Plans

My RPG Collection

Today, I thought I'd take you through my collection of RPG books.  That is, my physical collection.  As you can probably surmise from my frequent links to Bundles of Holding, I have a lot of digital copies of RPG books, too.  Those folders are vast, but also unimpressive and ultimately less satisfying from a collector's… Continue reading My RPG Collection

Box of Books

We've skipped our usual 5 on Friday and Hobby Update posts this week as I'm currently without a computer.  This is a particular pain for the 5 on Friday posts as the format is tricky to replicate on the mobile WordPress app.   I have an order in for my new machine, but until it arrives,… Continue reading Box of Books

Choosing an RPG for a New Group

I've got a lovely opportunity coming up.  Some old friends are interested in trying out a roleplaying game and I'm delighted to be their GM.  I love GMing.  I like playing RPGs, but GMing is where my heart is.  I like telling stories and working with the players to really create something special. Thing is,… Continue reading Choosing an RPG for a New Group

Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer

I'm still looking for the sci-fi RPG that fits me just right, giving me a good system that can be really flexible and gives an interesting setting that both gives a good jumping-off point for stories, but doesn't constrict with an existing and expansive IP.  This latter point, on not being bogged down with a… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer

A World Unexplored: The Discworld

I am a huge fan of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series of novels.  It was introduced to me by a friend in secondary school. And my first book was Hogfather.  I have since read every book in the series, seen all of the TV adaptions, read the graphic novels, listened to the audiobooks, perused the maps,… Continue reading A World Unexplored: The Discworld
