    Help me find grand, tragic elves...

    The Green Knight, who issues challenges and tests Gawain throughout, but doesn't particular seem to be enjoying it. The Green Knight from Marvel's Knights Of Pendragon takes the character and ties him to the health of the land and environment, who can never leave the Green Chapel, an observer...

    🎨 Creative What if there was a government agency dedicated to investigating the paranormal?

    One of the Allegiances I brought to The Trinity Continuum is the National Office of Emergency Research, whose mandate is to isolate and stop first and ask questions much later. If they bring back an object their usual response is to box it up and store it. They've been around since the 40s, and...

    RPGs where the PCs are angels

    This recent thread lists a number of options. (It was started by Demon: The Descent developer Rose Bailey, who doesn't mention DTD.) Relics launched on Kickstarter today. (Bias note: I'm a playtester and on the stretch goal writing team.)

    What happens when you mix anthro animals with the heist genre?

    Depending on how cute you want the cast to be, the rappelling burglar role would suit a spider.

    Based on the movie and despite the positive reports from genre magazines, I really wasn't expecting Buffy The Vampire Slayer to become my favourite series.

    April Fools about She-Ra RPG turns into something else...

    As well as mixing power levels which are somewhat balanced by metacurrency, Slayers aren't the only high-powered option in the core rules, there are also ensouled vampires, in-control werewolves and more. The Angel rulebook has a more modular group of powers and problems. An all-super-types game...
