  • RPG Biography
    Started with D&D Red Box in 1983 and play regularly with my first group since then, meeting almost every weekend. Played CoC first in 1985 and RQ in 1988. Most BRP games I played are (in that order) CoC, Stormbringer/ Elric! and RQ 3. Superhero rpg have a special place in my heart (since I started to play Champions/ HERO in 1989) although I do not play them anymore.

  1. Very nice. We do almost the same here: We roast Papists on a Pyre for Hell! MUHAHAHA! 😈 Erm .. I mean: PRAISE THE LORD!
  2. Butters, brave words ... but: Your royal house is already quite on fire! Hah!
  3. Damn that French Papist strumpet fighting for that Impostor and Traitor of a King! Long live the Republic! Hurray for Cromwell! For a Truly Christian England faithful to the Lord's Word!
  4. A question that has bothered me as long as I have played CoC: How does a character "signal" that he is inventing Magic Points in a ritual, item or spell? It sometimes says in a describtion "If a charcter spends 3 MPs then this or that happens". How does this work in "real" life? Does the Professor of Occultism concentrate and let it flow into the magical dagger? What if teh dagger is not magical and cannot "receive" the spend MPs? Does our professor know that? Does he reckon that his "magical" dagger is not magical at all and thet the antiques seller sold him a fake? Or do you just s
  5. I would either use the +1, +2 etc rule or variable AP like Elric!/Sturmbringer with te helemt also giving a plus to AP. Why? Becaus if you use Helmet AP like you outlined lying down might even be bad for a character againt missiles because all of the sudden he my be less likely to hit because of the cover but for some strange reason all the hits are headshots and the rest of the armor (also protectimg his shoulders, upper chest, arms) are good for nothing and he is none the better off than a guy in a t-shirt. Granted, helmets are a good protection against shrapnels but even today a helmet
  6. Jim is dead but he lives one in his illustrations. If he was half as witty and funny as his drawings are the angels are chuckling so bad that hell is sending protests-notes to heaven for "some peace and quiet". Still, a great loss. All the best to his family and friends.
  7. Being good at what you do does not qualify you to teach it to others. Of course, you should be knowedgeable about your subject as a teacher but Einstein would probably have failed at teaching 8th graders. On the other hand, an 8th grade physics teacher would most likely be a lousy Ersatz-Einstein. 😉
  8. Yep, I ran Robinson Gruesome in a One Shot for my oldest friend (know him from before kindergarten), like me a roleplaying veteran (whe started gaming together in 1983 and are still playing in the same group as the founding members). Great adventure, great fun. He even survived and managed to kill the Big Deepie ... barely. I like the other secnarios, too, but hadn't had the chance to run them yet.
  9. You if you a follower of that excuse for a King! Hah! See you on the field of honour - you see me in my triplane coming down on you from the sky! 😉 Let the Lord be witness which powers is more potent: Papism and Magickal Trickery OR True Faith and Machinery!
  10. All we loyal Roundheads know: That Vile Traitor to Parliament of the Good Folks of England, that Ally of the Bishop of Rome who is the Representative of the Devil Himself, that Fodder for the Abyss who entertains witches and warlocks in his camp has not long to live! Defend the True Faith! All Hail to Parliament! All hail to the Republic! All hail to the Lord Protector! For England! And if you think that this Rhinish Pfalzgraf of the Palatine will give you an edge - think again! Soon Rote Kampfflieger from our Protestant allies in Germany will straf your witches
  11. Thanks, Peter, for sharing the situation with us fans in such a straight-forward and honest to God-fashion. It is really appreciated! (I just speak on behalf of everybody here - and whoever objects to that can see me on the field of honour, 5.30 in the morning, your choice of weapons!) Please realted our (see above!) best wishes to Ken and we all hope that he will be all right or better really soon. Speaking about being a Luddite - I can alsolutely realte to that. Only difference is that I have never been very tech-savy. Anyhow, I really hope that you will find another person (u
  12. Yes, makes sense. So - all together now: GET WELL SOON! (not just because we love your games 😉)
  13. Yes, that is what I was hoping for - some kind of "hanging in there, still need some time" kinda message. I don't care too much about the webpage and don't care at all about this social-media mania of "And now I am about to type in a new paragraph for my newest adven .. upps .. telephone"-up-to-dateterinism. Quality needs time. But I was really hoping to see the last part of the Clockwork & Chivalry campaign in print. And I totally agree with the Flintlock series! Great stuff! Especially the two adventures about the French-and-Indian-War. But I also like the "Iirish reavers"
