    Sell me on Conan! as seen in the current Bundle of Holding.

    HURRAY! Seriously, that makes me really happy!

    Savage Worlds Daring Tales of the Space Lanes- where are the stats for the Blazing Star?

    Aww don't say that! I absolutely love Waylaid on Weyland1 I've run it at my rpg club, and then again at Dragonmeet... BUT! You are right, it cannot be run without making the maps first. I'd advise to do that and run it, though, because it's such a great adventure.

    Sell me on Conan! as seen in the current Bundle of Holding.

    I've kickstarted the game but it took me until now to finally muster the courage to run it at my local rpg club, and I'm happy I did! Players are loving it. Something that has probably been said a million times, but it's worth repeating: it plays much smoother than it reads. Not to mean that...

    What’s Your Ideal Sci-Fi RPG

    Years ago I ran a sci-fi campaign with Savage Worlds using material & adventures from Daring Tales of the Space Lanes - if you like pulp it’s excellent. I have been reading Mindjammer and I think it’s very well made but unfortunately it uses FATE that I’m not a fan of. I’ve started reading...

    Looking for combat based fantasy game

    I’d second the recommendations for Savage Worlds, especially if you want to use maps and minis, but also recommend Conan by Modiphius for theatre of the mind games - it’s a 2d20 system (nothing to do with the d20 one and it has a lot of tactical goodness (break an enemy’s guard to exploit your...

    Liminal RPG. Anyone know anything about it?

    I didn’t know about the Kickstarter, but happy to wait to buy the supplement as soon as it’s published. I like the idea of London as two settings in one, it opens the way to a lot of intrigue and covert ops south of the river.

    Liminal RPG. Anyone know anything about it?

    Yes, that’s a good idea. After all people or groups up to no good would find it easier to hide their operations in a place with less supernatural activity. Or it could be an ancient awakened force that cares nothing for the Pax. If I keep it small scale I could then fit it in the published...

    (Adventures) of the Demon Lord

    I've been running SotdL since last year and love it, so I'm happy to answer with my thoughts. First, a consideration. As soon as you are able to afford them, buy Exquisite Agony, Terrible Beauty and Hunger in the Void (Hell, Faerie, and the Void). They really help to flesh out the setting. My...

    Liminal RPG. Anyone know anything about it?

    I’m very excited about this game because I live in South London and want to run it at our club here. The one thing that I’m a bit perplexed about is that according to the quickstart book the Pax Londinium stipulates that no supernatural creatures are allowed south of the river, and I’d like to...

    Liminal RPG. Anyone know anything about it?

    I hadn’t heard of the KS but bought the PDF after reading a friend’s post about it and I’m really excited. I can’t wait to run The Return of Spring Heeled Jack, The Haunting of the Shard (by drowned pirates obviously), Tutankhamun Underground (set in the tunnels of the closed British Museum tube...

    [VtM] Does the Giovanni clan have the dumbest name? Do you use the Giovanni as is or change their name?

    I’m Italian and I can confirm that Giovanni sounds rather silly - almost as if someone was brainstorming what to call the Italian clan and named it after the first name of the owner of his local Italian groceries store. However, that wouldn’t stop me from playing it if I liked it aside of the...

    [Tabletop Etiquette] Character behaviours that wind up other players

    I think that as a GM I’d both use X cards and encourage communication around the table about issues that are triggering - and they don’t necessarily have to be an -ism, they could be something that brings back bad memories that makes one too anxious to think straight and enjoy themselves. I...

    Savage Worlds - Starship Rules and Options

    Yes I did! I looked up anything I could find for sci-fi Savage Worlds, but in the end this booklet and the companion were the two sources I used.

    Savage Worlds - Starship Rules and Options

    If you want to run a pulp game I'd recommend "Daring Tales of the Space Lanes: Starships of the Galaxy", it's only a couple of dollars from Drivethru. It's what I used when I ran a six-month SW sci fi campaign three years ago and it has a list of stats for ships of various sizes, modifications...

    Games with domain/faction management? (Including companies, cults, conspiracies, etc.)

    I'm quite interested both in the original topic and in Mindjammer, which I had often seen mentioned but never looked at because the idea of running transhuman sci-fi intimidates me. However since I'm reading Alastair Reynolds's books at the moment, I'm tempted! I've just bought Sarah's novel to...
