What the hell.. stumbled across this picture, and could not stop laughing, especially the fact that it was actually on the road, and not a joke. It was used for a promo in Texas for when the movie came out… I think I’d more then likely have to pull over if I saw this, because
Well as it looks the new Conan movie will come out this summer, and here is one of the first teasers out there for it. All I can say is, either this will be so awesome that it blows your mind or really bad. I am leaning towards really bad, what do you think?
Already on issue #5, I just stumbled upon this little gem called Oubliette magazine, and its offered for free as a pdf download. Now the publisher says about his magazine the following: “A magazine for old school fantasy roleplayers. Written for Labyrinth Lord, but also ideal for use with any Basic/Expert/Advanced original or clone, with
Here is another game that I stumbled into like 10 years ago, and it was a fun little system. It was produced by the now defunct Guardians of Order, and is owned by White-Wolf now. Anyhow, great little system that uses 2d6 for everything. Simple stats and simple skills. “Big Eyes, Small Mouth” (typically abbreviated
A little show, about these cartoon turtles who mutated into human like sized ninja fighting machines debuted on CBS, it was called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It started as a 5 part mini-series in 1987, then exploded into a regular Saturday morning cartoon, and finally was on 5 days a week with new episodes. The
Normally on Saturdays, decide to put up a funny picture or some type of chick picture, but not this week. I was on facebook.com and saw the trailer to the “new Thundercats” cartoon. Yeah, you heard me, the new one. The cartoon I grew up with as a young teen and loved, has come back. WHY? Because
I bought this book at Betacon last summer and never looked at it more then once, I actually bought it because, it was in the auction, and the money went to charity for helping kids with cancer. So I tossed it onto my pile of books to read if I was sick. WELL, that time
So this past week I have been sick, with the flu. Yeah, sucks doesn’t it? Well what can one do besides cough, sneeze, and blow one’s nose? Work on your DIY projects. So far I’ve managed to make a travel sized B/X set of books, above is my Marsh/Cook Expert Rules, bound and smaller! Why?
How important is a name for a character? VERY. I think the name of the character, sometimes makes the character. Does a character named “Bob” or “Steve” really sound like a great warrior or a powerful wizard? OF COURSE NOT. So let’s take the time to gather up some ideas for names, shall we? Well
Some newer players looking back onto AD&D 1e or B/X D&D, are unsure how the combat system works. Maybe because they are used to the way the AC system works in 3E and 4E. Their system is ascending for better while old school is descending for better AC. The question I often get is “how
So let’s talk sandbox games.. What is a sandbox game? Well, basically its a game that a DM/GM designs for players to travel around in and do whatever they want. Problem is, most DMs do not know how to handle this type of environment. Why? because its to “on the fly” for them. I know
Yes and no. Overall, yes. Its great to add flavor or details to your tavern, inn or even town. Careful though, as sometimes your minor detail will draw the attention of players to investigate something that has nothing to do with the game at hand. For example in the Book of Sorrows campaign Podcast I put
So I’ve been hooked on this low budgeted TV show from Canada, called Todd and the book of pure evil, thanks to a player in my online group, Terry. The show at first I thought was a bit lame, but after watching the first five episodes, I am really hooked on the show. The show is like
Why why why? Players often question a DM, when they think they are being cheated out of something. I noticed this happens a lot more in the new editions then in the older editions. Why? because the later editions have so many rules, and so much written out of things you can and can’t do.
What the hell is going on here?
Ahh.. the most electricfying man in wrestling is back. The Rock is very entertaining, from his days when he came into his own, in the nation of domination, where he was fueding with Stone Cold Steve Austin over the IC Belt (which Austin threw into the river), to the days he was singing and playing
Looks like I will be adding another podcast to my line up of old school D&D podcasts, this one is called Save or Die Podcast and it will focus on Classic Dungeons and Dragons. I will be hosting along with Mike and Elizabeth Stewart! You can find us here: http://Saveordie.info Email us at: Saveordiestaff@gmail.com
So how long have you had a character? Do you remember back in the days of playing AD&D, or even Basic D&D, you had a character this character that you loved. You loved him or her so much, that everytime you played a new game, you tried a way to bring that character into the
“You missed” a common phrased used by DMs to their player, as the face of the player drops in sadness. This is especially the case after the player spent a minute or devising a super plan to kill your baddie, and they think, ‘HA! Got you now, this will work’. So, why not, make things
So I was flipping through the Players Guide and Dungeon Masters Guide for First Edition AD&D, noticing that to gain a level, wasn’t easy. This made leveling a major event, not just another, “ok I leveled…”, instead, you feel accomplished, and it character meant something to you. I would like to point everyone to a
The Roll for Initiative Podcast is live and on the air! Wait, what is it? Oh its a show that focus on Advanced Dungeons and Dragons First edition! Its hosted by myself and Jayson Elliot! Our goal is to focus on Gary’s vision for First Edition and staying true to the TSR books. Sure there
So I got home from gaming tonight, where I am playing in a D&D 3E game. In this game I am playing a Paladin who started out along the path of being a proper Paladin, but now has slowly fallen towards the “Dark side” of gaming. Its safe to say that he lost almost of
Testing the new settings of this blog and this blog will be about all things a GM can run in games. Most games will focus on AD&D or D&D in general, with some World of Darkness, maybe some Army of Darkness RPG as well.
