    Chronicles of Future Earth

    I wanted to like the original BRP Future Earth, but it was a bit of an unfinished product in my view. Sarah Newton is a great creator but the slim volume seemed a product of time/page count constraints. Sadly I'm not a fan of FATE so that's where it will remain for me unfortunately. This type of setting is right up my alley but I think I'll need to do my own to get what I want.

    Greg Stafford Condolence Thread

    Vale Mr Stafford. I had the pleasure of an online interaction with him where he impressed me with his sincerity and the strength of his ideals. He and his works will not be forgotten.

    BRP misconceptions.

    I did meet someone who thought it was pronounced "BURP" and was a derivative of GURPS.

    MW: Sorcery Spell Listing (unofficial)

    Thanks for that Brian!

    Stormbringer 4?

    As I understand it, SB1-3 are basically the same game, as is Elric!/SB5. So how does SB4 differ from them?

    OpenQuest 2 preview now up

    Nice layout. Consider a consistent capitalization scheme in the subheadings. At the moment words seem capitalized at random.

    Questions concerning Magic World

    Just a comment, I thought the dedication to Lynn Willis and his name getting first billing was an excellent tribute.

    I like Magic World character generation!

    I see that "culture" has been added by hand to the character sheet. Does MW have rules for character culture?

    Delay or rejiggering of MW?

    Just saw this, from September, on Chaosium's site: Can anyone confirm or deny whether this is Magic World?

    [Magic World] Let's talk about it!

    Still impatiently waiting for Magic World. :-) I want to rationalize my RPG collection down to a few books, and I'm hoping that MW will be able to replace half a dozen other BRPish books I don't have space for, like Stormbringer 5 and RQIII, MRQII, which are great, but looks like MW will actually be more useful to play in the future.

    Chaosium Construction Zone Sale

    I've spent too much time fiddling with the Chaosium site only to be rejected a a customer because I live in Japan and apparently this causes a system meltdown. I guess they just don't want my money.
