  • RPG Biography
    Over the last 25 years I have played a lot of role playing games including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Champions, Dungeons & Dragons, Fantasy Hero, Scion, ShadowRun, Traveler and Vampire the Masquerade. Having said that I am at best an intermediate level game master (GM) and only have real experience running Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition, Hero System 5th Edition and just recently Magic World. The only other thing to know if that I generally prefer non-narrative games.

    Converting Superworld to CoC 7th

    I don’t know the answer but would point you at Elder Godlight from Modiphius. It’s basically super heroes fighting the mythos.

    If not Stormbringer, what then?

    I think you’re right about BRP being right for modern supernatural. Hopefully After the Vampire Wars will be a success and we get to see additional supporting material.

    Mythic Greece

    I haven't played a video game in probably ten years but I will get that one. Meanwhile I am anxiously awaiting Mythic Greece from The Design Mechanism and Before Iron from Nocturnal (though I should probably give up on that one). On of my long term goals is to write a campaign world with two or three adventures built into it where backsliding classical Greeks find their mythic Gods coming alive and punishing them for not being faithful over the years.

    Mythic Greece

    Okay - so apparently this link to a Facebook video doesn't show up here (or not reliably). I am trying to find the video on the Internet. If I can I will post it.... The name of the game this comes from is Assasin's Creed Oddysey

    Mythic Greece

    I am not a video gamer (so I have no idea about this title) but I saw the trailer and it made me think of the Mythic Greece book coming out. Wish it would hurry up and come out!

    I think it just recently sold out but Chaosium is printing more.

    The big list of D100 settings

    Does Unknown Armies really qualify?

    Return of the Homely Pilgrim

    Hey Chris! Nice to see a comment from you! Just to let you know my group plays Magic World (a fantasy setting more than 2 years old now) and have also used it for pulp action and horror. My group doesn’t like real gritty games and Magic World is just the right level of abstraction. I have decided it doesn’t matter if Chaosium support MW as long as my copy holds up.

    Happy Independence Day 2018

    Please guys - make it private. No matter which side you’re on you’re likely going to upset people. One of the goals of this site is to be non political.

    Current Digital Editions of old Print Editions

    You can still buy print copies of Magic World at Chaosium at https://www.chaosium.com/magic-world-2/. If you PM me your email address I can email you the latest errata when we return from vacation. Probably be the 9th.

    Recommend a Dungeon Crawl

    Thanks everyone. I will check these out. But if you don't mind let me expand the scope a little.. Lets include bigger modules under 90 pages or so and those modules that have a dungeon crawl in them but aren't pure dungeon crawls. Any thoughts?

    Five (5) Things Essential to a Magic World setting

    For me incorporating frequent ship travel into my settings has made it out of the ordinary for my players. You can just do loads with it!

    Recommend a Dungeon Crawl

    Hi all, Recently my group who has been playing CoC for a while asked to run a dungeon crawl using Magic World rules. Our last dungeon crawl was In Search of the Troll Slayer which was a big hit. The problem is that I don't know of any other modules (for any system) that meet our likes and dislikes. Can you guys recommend something? What we / I like: Not too big of a module. No more than 40 pages or so. No epic sorcery like you find in typical Dungeons & Dragons games. I would really like to escape globes of invulnerability and fireballs... A rational dungeon. There should be good reasons for any monster to be in there and monster's shouldn't respawn. Intelligent monsters / enemies that can be fought or reasoned with. Bad guys that have goals and timelines. If the players don't act the monsters will. No reliance on Elves, Dwarves and Halflings tropes. I can handle those things being in the game but my players will want to be human Perhaps a sword and sorcery feel. I realize they are probably hundreds of modules like this for D&D but I haven't been able to identify them. Thanks!

    Me too. Mythic Iceland without hit locations preferably.
