After watching the Questing Beast review of Disciples of Bone and Shadow (a very chunky solo OSR tabletop RPG), I’ve become even more convinced that including an example of play for a tabletop RPG is a great idea. It came up just the other night for d6 ARKFORT. My life-long bestie is very supportive, and he was play-testing d6 ARKFORT,… Read More »How do you play d6 ARKFORT?
I’ve enjoyed playing some DARK FORT on my own. The group for which I was GMing was no longer able to meet consistently, and not playing tabletop RPGs killed the momentum that I had with my then-current tabletop RPG project, so I side-stepped into messing around with solo/GM-less tabletop RPG stuff. I’d honestly been intimidated by seeing the way that… Read More »What is d6 ARKFORT?
And here I thought that the time between 2020’s end of October report and my catching up report at the beginning of the year was a long time to go without a blog post. So much has happened in the past year. We found out that my partner was going to need surgery for the thing in her brain, her… Read More »It’s a life update! 5
As I’ve been recovering from my surgery, I’ve been playing Persona 4 Golden (as well as some Among Us, which has been fun)—I was really excited when it came to Steam as I thought it would be a good opportunity to play a game that seemed perfect for me that I missed out on as a kid. Well, it might’ve been perfect for… Read More »Persona 4 Golden was a letdown, but Over Arms may not be
I’m not sure if this month really happened—that might just be my excuse for feeling like I didn’t get as much done as I would’ve liked to. What did happen? I aged up a whole year. I saw my family in Bloomington, which is always bittersweet (now with a touch of dangerous in the middle of a pandemic, I must admit).… Read More »End of July report
My best friend gains another year under his belt as do I in a few days time. I’m still dealing with physical therapy for my pelvic floor dysfunction as well as shoulder impingement. It feels like the world is on fire with the continuing protests and another surge of COVID-19. I’ll say it: black lives matter, and everyone should be… Read More »End of June report
First of all, I want to apologize for the dry month on my blog. It’s good news, not bad news. I’ll start by saying that I have started GMing tabletop RPGs again! (Oh wait. I said that in my end of April report.) More on that a bit farther down. Well, my new mechanical keyboard did finally come in a… Read More »It’s a life update! 4
The Citadel at Norðvorn (Kickstarter) for the DFRPG came out last year in 2019, so I’m a little late to reviewing that as well. It is a lot like Hall of Judgement with more experience and content behind it, and I really couldn’t have asked for more. My favorite parts were (as they always are) the worldbuilding and the information about… Read More »Quick Review of The Citadel at Norðvorn from Gaming Ballistic for the DFRPG
The Hall of Judgement (Kickstarter) for the DFRPG came out back in 2018, but that isn’t going to stop me from reviewing it now. 120 pages of a norse-themed setting and adventure for the dungeon fantasy sibling of my favorite table-top RPG ever? Yeah, I’m interested (and I was very happy to learn that it was only the tip of the… Read More »Quick Review of Hall of Judgement from Gaming Ballistic for the DFRPG
Quick Review of the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (Powered by GURPS), the GM Screen, and the Dungeon Fantasy Companion from Steve Jackson Games
This has been a long time coming. The Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (Kickstarter) came out way back in 2017, which is already crazy for me to think about. I think I would best describe is as the younger sibling of GURPS that is really into fantasy, which meant it was perfect for me. 5 books, 2 large double-sided maps, cardboard figures,… Read More »Quick Review of the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (Powered by GURPS), the GM Screen, and the Dungeon Fantasy Companion from Steve Jackson Games
