Collecting RPGs: My Take

I collect RPG books but I would not, in the way I understand the word, call myself a 'collector'. I say that because when I use that word, I picture someone searching for those last couple of titles to finish off their full set of 2nd edition Dungeons & Dragons or grabbing those last couple… Continue reading Collecting RPGs: My Take

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

Chronicles of Darkness on Sale at DriveThruRPG

I almost missed this sale! As much as I love the World of Darkness, I actually much prefer Chronicles of Darkness as a setting.  I prefer most of the games in the range (though Vampire: The Masquerade remains my favourite White Wolf game, overall) and I like the approach taken in building a setting for you… Continue reading Chronicles of Darkness on Sale at DriveThruRPG

Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

We're back up north, having spent a couple of weeks visiting family, buying a new car, seeing friends and generally chilling in the Central Belt.  It's always nice to go off somewhere, but I like coming home. On Wednesday, I headed down to Lybster for one of my D&D groups.  We've been using the Portland… Continue reading Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

Faulty Knowledge in the World of Darkness

As I plan the next Vampire: The Masquerade chronicle I intend to run, I find myself looking at different blogs and message boards for pointers to help me up my game as a World of Darkness Storyteller.  Don't get me wrong, I feel that I run a good WoD chronicle, but there is definitely room for improvement. Today, I’d like… Continue reading Faulty Knowledge in the World of Darkness

The Problem with Evolving Settings

There are many, many RPG settings that have rich and interesting stories that have evolved over the course of several years.  Settings like Planescape, The Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, The Iron Kingdoms, Azeroth (the setting of World of Warcraft), the World of Darkness and others have come out of a collective, long-term effort over a number of years. In some cases, such as Forgotten Realms… Continue reading The Problem with Evolving Settings
