A rant about layout and complexity in RPG books

This post started out as a rant about Call of Cthulhu, then expanded into a general rant about layout and complexity in RPG’s and then changed again, into a general discussion about stuff I’m enjoying/playing/hating/looking forward to… So… Call of Cthulhu 6th Edition I’ve been a gamer for 20+ years and despite playing a few …

Hacking D&D 4E

Important note: this article discusses the use of CBLoader, a Windows program of questionable legality, to modify the core character generation rules of D&D 4e. This application reverse engineers the data used by the no longer supported offline character builder, and can be used to download fan versions of the D&D material released since the …

My thoughts on D&D Next

Having had the chance to run the first public outing of D&D Next in the UK, and having been involved in both some of the behind the scenes testing and with the public packets, I’ve had 16 months to play with the rules in various forms. I thought that with D&D Next getting its first …

Racial Variant: Baaz Draconian

This months Dragon magazine from WotC say the return of Krynn’s draconians, portrayed for D&D 4e through the use of racial variants for the Dragonborn race. Presented in the article were the Bozak (magic using) and Kapak (stealthy, acidic) draconians. Other the next few days, it’s my intention to write up the missing racial types. …

Bantha This highly adaptable species is one of the most commonly found herd creatures, living wild on many worlds, and domesticated for agricultural and pastoral use on many of the major inhabited worlds. Bantha have the ability to survive in harsh, unforgiving environments  they live on minuscule amounts of food and water given their size, and they naturally store the …

A Who’s Who of Mos Shuuta

Ardun Du’gren – Dim-U Preacher It’s easy to ignore the wld arm waving gesticulations, and almost incomprehensible shouting of Ardun, a human follower of the Dim-U faith. These fanatics believe in the sanctity of the bantha, and worship a mother goddess creature, the mighty bantha, the horned one. By day, Ardun wanders the Mos Shuuta …

The Wider Mos Shuuta Area

The lands around the Mos Shuuta mesa may, at first glance, just look like the rest of Tatooine… arid, featureless desert, but like the rest of the planet, looks can be very deceiving. The Mos Shuuta mesa is a rocky outcropping, roughly 500m by 1000 metres in size, in a roughly kidney shaped formation, formed …

More Mos Shuuta Locations

I really enjoyed writing the earlier extra locations for Mos Shuuta, and I knew there was more I could do with the mesa… Surveillance Bunker Beyond a vague customs presence, and the imperial appointed spaceport overseer, Brynn, the Empire has very little influence in Mos Shuuta, leaving it to Teemo and his Gammorrean guards to maintain piece. …

Expanding Mos Shuuta

The new Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginners Game comes with a wonderful mini map of Mos Shuuta the setting for the box sets introduction game. Walking you through the games innovative use of dice, it pretty much railroads you into going to 4 locations in order to complete the adventure and escape the …

A Brief Look at Pathfinder Minis

Last week saw the release of the 5th set of Pathfinder pre-painted minis, made by WizKids (of mageknight and heroclix fame), and sold by Paizo. I’m lucky to have been able to amass a fairly large collection of minis over the last 4 years or so, hunting down rare mini’s and importing some from america. …
