Blades in the Dark: First Look

I found Blades in the Dark through a friend and decided to drop a dollar on it to check out the quick play rules. I heard a lot of good things from the G+ community and the author also wrote Lady Blackbird, which I’m a fan of. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. (Quick…

A New Action In Fate: Intercept

I seriously love Fate. Something I’m amazed about is how well they’ve been able to boil just about anything you’d like to do into 4 different actions. But some of you may know that I’m not completely happy with the options given to me, especially defensively. If you haven’t already read it, check out my…

I’m The Goddamn Batman!

Since my last article was about Arkham City I thought, hell let’s make the Batman play book. Keep in mind this is a toned down version made from Class Warfare (great book if you want to do something like this). Keep in mind this is still an overpowered playbook due to all of the starting…

The Fronts and Grim Portents of Arkham City

I don’t have these huge worlds with eons of lore, armies of NPC’s, and miles and miles of land. My games of preference are *World games and the occasional 13th Age game. World games are very…

Battlestar Galactica Board Game Play Report

Last game night we busted out the Battlestar Galactica Board Game (BGBG). The game is based on the TV series of the same name, though you don’t need to watch it to understand how to play. In this game all the players are divided into two teams. The catch is that you know what team…

The Genius of Fate’s Consequences

As most of you are probably aware, Fate has what it calls Consequences for tracking how “damaged” characters are. There are a few really awesome benefits to this system over others that I’ve seen. Let’s have a look-see, shall we? Consequences are Descriptive Consequences need a name that describes the “injury”. This makes it so…

RPG World

This is an ongoing project I’m still playing with. If you’d like to suggest ideas or write up a playbook for this caffeine induced insanity go here to help edit. For some reason my coffee addled brain thinks it would be a good idea to make some Apocalypse World game where you play people playing an…
