PC Murder

It’s been a while since it has come up in one of my D&D games but there were a few times when one of my players had enough and decided to kill another player. Well his character at any rate. A while back I picked up this silly/epic game about god killers called Mythender. There…

Failing Forward

Last time I wrote about what happens when a character almost makes a roll, a success with complications. Now I’d like to talk about when a character completely botches it. The example I used last time was a thief trying to sneak into an orc stronghold. Now regardless of system there is always the chance…

Success With Complications

Dungeon World (DW) really got the idea of success with complications through my head. For those of you who haven’t played DW before the basic mechanic is you roll 2d6+modifier. A 6 or less is a miss/fail. A 10+ is a success. A 7-9 is a success with complications. This is where things can get…

2d6 Research Events

When looking into a mystery sometimes the best place to start is in the past. In most games the past is kept safe in either a library or a town hall. Within those buildings one can find sometimes hundreds of books and scrolls that may help shed light on the subject. Research can be boring…

Sleeper Agent

Last week I pulled what I call a “Sleeper Agent”. One of the party members was switched by a very powerful shape shifter. The PC had been knocked out and the rest of the party gave chase. They lost their quarry for a min, which was all the time I needed. The bad guys stripped…

Who Should Play What

For the longest time I’ve jumped from system to system. I love to try new things out and much to my players chagrin games get dropped a lot. Now I have a few different groups to play with and I’ve noticed that certain systems seem to work better for different types of groups. I’m going…

Enviromental Damage

Something I noticed whilst playing a video game was the amount of crap I was breaking. Every time I swung my sword it seemed like I was breaking some part of the environment. Tables, chairs, bottles, pots, walls, and columns were no match for me. Then I realized that I don’t do this much at…

Corrupted Supers: Game Starter for a One Shot or Long Term

My sons have been watching The Incredibles a lot lately (my 4 year old does a great impression of Frozone, when he walked up to me and asked “Where is my super suit?” exactly like Sam Jackson it took me a while to stop laughing) so of course every game idea I’ve had this last…

Comparing Apples to Different Fruit

Over the year (almost) that I’ve been writing this blog, we’ve covered a bunch of different systems. The fantastic thing about RPGs is that there is no right or wrong way to play. Find a way that works with your group and run with it. I want to cover all the different systems that I’ve…
