  • RPG Biography
    Grognard since the mid-eighties. Started with Star Frontiers, FASA Trek and playing bards when it was a multiclass nightmare. Began d100 with Pendragon, Stormbringer and CoC. Just got Force and Destiny so now i have entered all 3 SW rpgs. Palladium (Robotech) and WFRP were cool when I was a kid. I prefer grittier to historical fantasy but it ultimately comes down to the group you game with.

    I am currently ungamed, but hope to reverse that once things get settled here in England.

    Just moved to England. Would like to find my people here. I am coincidentally near locations in the Merrie England intro scenario.

  1. Pretty sneaky, guys

    Yeah a Mythic Persia that includes Georgia and Armenia, Shi'a mysticism, knight-poets in tiger-skin cloaks... Though the reign of Darius...
  2. 16th century Europe campaign

    Appreciate your rules but where's the setting info? Where in Central Europe are you thinking?
  3. New Edition of WFRP Coming

    I would revisit the Old World if it was more 1st and 2nd edition. Or if the old 2nd Ed setting was converted to Mythras. I still have a beaten up copy of WFRPG from 1989...
  4. German Language BRP/RQ/Cthulhu

    Thanks for the response Joerg. Feel free to message me privately, but I'm interested in your thoughts in general about the German gaming scene. Drive-Thru has a fair amount of German material. What are Germans playing? Are they doing it in German or English? I have endless inane questions.
  5. Hey Guys, So, I've decided to resurrect my childhood German, and I thought, what better way to do this than to find things I know deeply and think about more than perhaps is sensible, but to do those things in another language! yay. I know there's a body of RuneQuest material out there in German, and Call of Cthulhu as well. How many forum members are German speakers? Are there German forums? I'd appreciate a gatekeeper to point me in some useful directions. CP
  6. New Releases - Mythic Britain: Logres and Khakun Shrugs

    Does anyone know if the author is on this forum?
  7. Alternative Napoleonics

    I would definitely be interested in such a project. Mine the heck out of the Aubrey-Maturin (Master &Commander) novels for period touches, political intrigues and espionage. My wife would be an easy sell for such a campaign.
  8. New Releases - Mythic Britain: Logres and Khakun Shrugs

    Logres is great. I like the layout and the lack of duplicative text from previous books. The maps are good and useful to the base campaign and elsewhere. The included campaign was excellent and had a great balance of fighting, figuring and leveraging cultural factors that didn't seem forced. I appreciated how the Saxons and co were portrayed and how their cultural perogatives were shown as drivers for their aggression. This was a great approach and the nuances shown made them very playable. Having consumed several Viking and a couple Saxon themed RPGs or supplements over the years I feel justified in labeling this the best depiction of the Saxons ever. The author did a great job of laying out the cultural bits and integrating them into play without beating the players over the head or making it clunky or contrived. My only issues are perhaps editorial. In the campaign there were a few places where the settlement names might've been switched or inconsistent. This might sort itself out after I read through it a few more times. Also I have not played out the mass combat rules but we're the Saxon forces under powered compared to the Llys spearmen?
  9. What setting licence should Mythras get

    Ugh, whatever. I'm sorry but a faux-Trek setting which includes the premise that Klingons worship Satan, not a merely evil deity but the actual KJV Devil? ... Just. No. Stop.
  10. Renaissance locales

    Has anyone filled out the map of Europe a bit more for Renaissance as a setting? Wars of Religion in Bohemia? Poland? Ottoman lands? I've always wanted to run a Quest for the Lost Ark campaign around the historical Portuguese expedition to Abyssinia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cristóvão_da_Gama
  11. 2300AD to BRP

    The character sheet is cut off at the bottom, at least that's how it displays for me. Otherwise well done!
  12. Denizens of Barsoom beta

    Good start. Keep us posted as it develops.
  13. What setting licence should Mythras get

    Lords of the North by Bernard Cornwell would make a great Mythic Vikings setting...
  14. What setting licence should Mythras get

    That's what I was thinking about SM Stirling's Nantucket/Emberverse. Or a similar approach with some of the previously mentioned Franco-Belgian comics. Also one could probably get away with a much smaller supplement for something like the Quest for the Time Bird world of Akbar.
  15. What setting licence should Mythras get

    Yeah I've recently rediscovered all these comics that I read in dribs and drabs in the 80s from Heavy Metal but could never find outside of the magazine in the US. Pre-interwebz obvz.
