The successful conclusion to operation FRAMEWORK RAINBOW, in which we obtain some outside aid to rid New York of extremely venomous, mathematically inclined, spider swarms who seem to have been mind controlling everyone. Or something. The threat is dealt with, and we didn't want to delve too deeply into the exact details of what was going on.

We're going to take a break for about a month whilst people go on holiday, then start again with something else. Maybe Blades in the Dark, which we haven't tried before.

Episode 20 of The Spires of Xin-Shalast. A trap is sprung, and survived, but turns out to be a bit more deadly than expected when a group of spectre slayers show up, though probably not as deadly as it should have been since after subsequently reading the rules on summoned creatures, I don't think the party had as many restorations available as they thought they did. Keeping track of all the rules in Pathfinder can be tricky.

Anima Prime 1.5 (unofficial)

Christian Griffen gave me permission to apply his G+ outline of a "1.5" version of his game #animaprime to the text of the original version, and I'm pleased to post the results:

For a while I’ve been interested in the idea of drawing things using 10 lines (or fewer), while still hopefully capturing the essence of the thing …

I rolled some dice, consulted MMI and ‘Axe Beak’ came up. In truth an arch-devil came up first, but I had already decided to skip dinos and devils.

Seven-Wide RPG Challenge


Someone approaches you and says that they want to read and play seven roleplaying games, but want those seven games to cover the widest possible range of the #rpg experience, design concepts, play styles and so forth. They need you to pick those seven games. What list do you give them?

Don't reply here, but rather make a post with the #7wideRpg tag.


I think for the most part, I'd go with those games that have proven to be the foundation of other games.

1. Fate Core (I would go with FUDGE to go further back, but I don't think it is accessible as Fate Core.
2. Apocalypse World (PbTA)
3. Deadlands (Savage Worlds)
4. Vampire (Storyteller)
5. Star Wars (d6)
6. Call of Cthulhu (BRP)
7. Dungeons & Dragons 3rd (or 3.5)

Those aren't necessarily my firrst choice of game- I just think that they represent what is being asked.

#7wideRpg


My personal list would be something like this:
1. Apocalypse World as an RPG with "standard" DM-players split, action oriented but with good exploration of character relationships
2. Kagematsu because it's one of the games that made me *feel* most
3. A Penny for My Thoughts as something that's VERY different from your standard RPG
4. Microscope similarly to Penny, is a very particular game
5. Trollbabe because it's a game that gives the player a lot of power, which they often don't have in your standard fantasy RPG.
6. Enter the Avenger because it's a very accessible and easy game, and can be played in a very short time, with a complete story.
7. The Room (by Ariele Agostini) as another game that's easy to set up, it's similar to a larp and can be played only once

I'm sure I missed a whole lot of titles. I feel I should also include some LARPs, but unfortunately I don't know many. I wanted to add a more classic GMful game, maybe Archipelago, but the other games kinda cover that part. I also feel Murderous Ghosts should have a place in the list, but I wouldn't know what to take away ^^

I'm expecting that my Rise of the Runelords campaign will wrap up in a few weeks, which opens up the question of what to run next. In the short term, I'll take a bit of a break, but I need to start thinking about what to prepare for.

In the ongoing saga of Rise of the Runelords, the party of heroes are particularly heroic in their defeat of the blue dragon Ghlorofaex, spending several hero points and burning through a lot of spells and hitpoints.

Not only did I get to use a map that barely fit on the table, but I also got to use both my Blue Dragon models.

Having defeated the ice devil, the party decides to head up to the fortress of Shahlaria to take on the Rune Giants up there. This could turn out to be quite a dangerous fight, since a couple of rune giants plus a dozen or so cloud and storm giants could be more than the group can handle.

An analysis of the problems with the words "immersion" and "fun" when talking about games. I don't 100% agree with everything, but the underlying message that they're terms that are too generic, broad and misunderstandable clicks with me.

Write-up of an RPG game I played at Dublin Worldcon. As employees of the Department of Cosmic Horror, it was our job to ensure that nobody finds out about things they are not meant to know, especially when it involves unfathomable entities from beyond time and space. More importantly, we need to ensure we fill in our timesheets by the end of the week.

These two servant zombies are meant to be part of a roleplaying game that I am planning (yes, I am burning time). Their names are Marlamas and Uthon, and they are in the service of the Hierophant of Harnolsipor's third chapter.

Mostly they are living in the zombie stables where they are feed horseblood to keep them awake and agile. But sometimes they are out on service with the servants or troops of the Hierophant.

Not that they are able to notice the difference.

I've been re-reading through Fudge rules and I'm coming to realize that what I thought was a good system before is a great
system. I like the way that it can scale rapidly from simulationist to rules-lite without really breaking any of its core rules.

It's also sparking my game designer brain. Love it when the neurons fire like that.
