Step Through the Stargate: Playtest for Wyvern Games

Stargate was a fantastic franchise.  The original movie was great, but what I really loved was everything that came after it.  Specifically, the series really took on a new life when it hit TV screens in 1997.  That a single sci-fi movie spawned such a huge TV franchise is really something special.  So, then, let's… Continue reading Step Through the Stargate: Playtest for Wyvern Games

Throwback Thursday: Playing in the Star Wars Galaxy

There's some older content on this blog that I'm rather proud of but which doesn't really get read any more.  This is natural as people are always looking for the newest thing out there.  Heck, we do it every friday! With that in mind, I reckon it would be fun to, on the first Thursday… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Playing in the Star Wars Galaxy

That said, without further ado, let's take a look at… Continue reading Supplementary: Orcbusters for Paranoia


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


RPG Resources: Paranoia Paperwork

Paranoia is fantastic.  It's my favourite RPG for a one-shot game.  It's not one I'd necessarily run as a longer campaign, but that's fine as there are other games to scratch that itch.  One thing I love, love, love about Paranoia is its take on mindless bureaucracy.  The world of Paranoia is one of dystopian bureaucracy and it is important that you, as the GM,… Continue reading RPG Resources: Paranoia Paperwork


Playing in the Star Wars Galaxy: Part 1 (The Past)

With the recent revival of the Star Wars franchise in the form of the theatrical (and more recent DVD) release of The Force Awakens, along with the excellent TV shows, The Clone Wars and Rebels, I think it's safe to say I've been on something of a Star Wars kick.  With that in mind, I feel that it's as good a… Continue reading Playing in the Star Wars Galaxy: Part 1 (The Past)
