Hobby Update 17/06/18: All the Dungeons, All the Dragons

It's been a roleplay-heavy week, this one.  Rest assured, that is most definitely not a complaint!  Specifically, I've been to two games of Dungeons & Dragons with two different groups. First up was a group that has only recently formed.  Indeed, this was only our second meeting, but we're starting to along very well.  I've made… Continue reading Hobby Update 17/06/18: All the Dungeons, All the Dragons

Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

Mystery is a crucial part of many RPG campaigns, but there are some fundamental issues with the structures of some of these campaigns.  It's great when players find, identify and interpret clues, but they don't always find them, and a couple such misses can leave a mystery unsolvable.  I mean, this can be overcome by… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

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

Bundle of Holding: Paranoia Classic

So far, I've done Top 50 rankings for two years.  Paranoia appeared in both sets, at number 21 in 2016 and then an even more respectable number 2 in 2017.  So, yeah, needless to say, I really like this game. Paranoia feels unique.  It is often described as a cross between 1984 and Monty Python… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Paranoia Classic

2 Deadlands Bundles from Bundle of Holding

About three years ago, Bundle of Holding did a bundle of classic Deadlands material.  Now, they're trotting the franchise back out with two bundles dedicated to Deadlands Reloaded, Pinnacle's reimplementation of the Deadlands setting using the Savage Worlds system.  I have the Savage Worlds core book and it seems interesting and flexible, but I've yet… Continue reading 2 Deadlands Bundles from Bundle of Holding

Fantasy AGE @ Bundle of Holding

It's been a while since we last covered a bundle on here.  Not many have really caught my eye, I guess.  Today, though, there's this lovely offering from Bundle of Holding and Green Ronin Publishing.  This bundle covers Green Ronin's Fantasy AGE and Dragon's Age games: As usual, there are two tiers.  The first tier costs… Continue reading Fantasy AGE @ Bundle of Holding

Nostalgia Games: Considering Fantasy Flight’s Re-Release of the Original Star Wars RPG

We all have one, I'm sure.  One of those old games that we played as a kid.  We might know it's not as good as more modern offerings, but the game still holds a special place in our hearts. Perhaps you grew up playing your family's battered, old copy of Monopoly or Cluedo.  Oh sure, they're not… Continue reading Nostalgia Games: Considering Fantasy Flight’s Re-Release of the Original Star Wars RPG

Modiphius Introduces Quickstarts for their RPGs

I like Modiphius, and I've written previously about some of their initiatives.  Their latest idea seems to be the introduction of quickstart rules for each of their RPGs.  Well, for most of their RPGs.  They do produce rather a lot. These quickstart packs are described by company: Welcome to the Modiphius Quickstart Collection, where you… Continue reading Modiphius Introduces Quickstarts for their RPGs
