    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.

    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.

    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!

    Dice roller recommendation?

    Thanks Scott! I like this a lot. Minimum work and very intuitive. We will move forward with this.

    Dice roller recommendation?

    That sounds a little limiting... How hard is it to create a character sheet?

    Dice roller recommendation?

    Hi all, We play online using Mumble for voice. Up till now we have used RPOL for a dice roller but I am looking for something easier and more intuitive. The only requirements are the ability to roll standard dice and the ability to see each other’s rolls. Any suggestions?
  10. Wow. I was clueless on all this. This is super helpful! Thank you so much!

  12. Very useful and well supported!
  13. Hi all, I am about to run Ladybug, Ladybug Fly Away Home and the players will be playing as FBI agents and private investigators. Had a few questions: 1. What sidearm do FBI agents carry? 2. Do they have shotguns in the back of their cars like county police? 3. Do FBI and state police have laptops mounted in their cars? What kind of functions do they serve? I assume they can look up license plate numbers; can they look up driver license numbers as well? Can they access other databases? Can they issue All Point Bulletins (APBs) or is that something only dispatchers can do? 4. Do FBI and state and local police share the same radio frequencies or channels? If not can FBI, state and local police talk to one another on car radios? 5. What does it take to authorize a FBI or state police helicopter to look for someone? 6. What does it take to authorize a telephone bug, or to place a listening device in a room? What does it take to place a tracking device in someone’s car? 7. Can a FBI agent call for state or local police backup? 8. What other abilities and resources do law enforcement professionals have access to? 9. How much can a FBI player get away with (in terms of the above) if he doesn’t care about consequences? Thanks! PS – I am posting this to yog-sothoth, RPGPUB and BRP Central…

    Other Suns download

    Hey guys. I don’t want to be a goody two shoes but it’s likely that the above scribd link is pirated material. I am definitely interested in the subject matter but perhaps it sends the wrong message? Not picking on you Chris- just my thoughts...
