    Cross-Overs That Would Be Awesome...

    "Good morning, Mr. Reese. Did you sleep well?" "No." "I'm sorry to hear that. Well, you're in fine company. Bear decided to keep me up all night by--" "Harold? What is it?" "I just found out who our new number is, John. And I'm finally at a loss for words." "Who is it?" "The First Lady...Claire...

    Editing your Signature?

    Hello, Mods. I can't seem to edit my Signature. When I go to the "About Me" section, the little editing pencils are by all the other values, but not for the Signature. Am I just not seeing it? How can I change what's listed there? (Note that I tried search for an answer on the site, but got...

    Adventures on a starcraft luxury cruise ship?

    I'm running a sci-fi game ostensibly set in the "Star Frontiers" universe, with heavy doses of "StarCraft", "Cthulhu Tech", "TransHuman Space", "Jorune", "Mech Warrior", "Firefly", "Aliens" and "Blade Runner". The system is BRP and GURPS crushed together in an unholy embrace. Anyhoo, I intend...

    [Fantasy game] What are crimes that match up with the Seven Deadly Sins?

    Or more importantly, seven sin-based crimes that are systemic and a group could be involved with? The reason for this is that I want seven criminal thematic gangs in a fantasy city who will be adversaries of the PC's at one point or another. Some of the sins lend themselves easily, like a...

    [Idea Shopping] Help me build an all-dwarf campaign...

    I've been inspired to run an all-dwarf game (characters, not players) after seeing Peter Jackson's version of "The Hobbit". All of the party will be dwarves with some manner of quest (or not), with most of the action taking place underground. Elements I'm toying with include: * Battles with...

    Video games with good stories (to watch as walkthroughs on YouTube)?

    I don't have the money, hardware or time to play video games right now, but I do enjoy watching the playthrough/walkthrough videos that can often be found on YouTube (hey, some people dig reality shows; give me a break). Not all games are created equal, however, and some have great stories while...

    [Dungeons & Diapers] Gaming group for parents plus play group for babies?

    I am dying to game. I haven't had a chance to game since before my wife and I got pregnant and she ended up on bedrest (as I then became her hands and feet, etc). Now that the twins are here, I'd feel horribly guilty leaving the kiddos with my wife (who works all day) while I go off to raid a...

    [Comics] DC/Marvel team-ups you want to see...

    I don't know about you, but I have a guilty pleasure of loving super-hero team-ups. Usually this is confined to characters within the same comic universe (i.e. Batman/Superman, Spider-Man/Daredevil, etc), but a few times the two comic giants have had individual characters appear in jointly...

    [Will It Blend] How many media sci-fi universes can we mix together?

    This is meant for fun, a kind of game where we see how many sci-fi media universes we can stuff into a phone booth. This thread might very well belong in Tangency Media, but I think there's gaming gold to be mined in them thar hills depending on what we come up with. Besides, we'll use some RPG...

    [The Dark Tower] So...What's along the paths of the other beams? (possible spoilers)

    This thread is meant to explore some parts of the world of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series that isn't shown in the novels. I know this thread could well go in the Tangency: Other Media forum, but I thought a lot of juicy RPG material could be culled from our musings. Here's a Wikipedia...

    If one can have fan fiction, can one have fan comics?

    Weird legal question...If there is legal fan-fiction of various books (for example, Harry Potter), can one make legal fan-comics of Marvel or DC comics characters? I know one can draw and even sell stills of comic characters, but I don't know about sequential art. Can you make fan-comics even if...

    The Hospital Game Hook Thread

    I'm stuck in a hospital awaiting emergency heart surgery. No, really. :( Anyway, I thought hospitals could be a good place for plot hooks for games. Every PC gets banged up at some point and needs healing, right? It can involve modern hospitals, shiny sci-fi healing centers, scary Lovecraftian...

    [Probably scooped, I don't care] The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu

    [WWII-Thulhu] Help me assign powers to a PC...

    I'm running a WWII/Call of Cthulhu/Hellboy game, where the characters are various Allied agents with supernatural abilities working for a unit called Chimera. (The agents have enough mojo that they don't go insane every five minutes like regular humans tend to do, plus I want them to be able to...

    Planning an Imperial Rome/ Greek Myths sort of game...

    I'm playing around with the idea of running a Swords & Sandals type of campaign set in ancient Greece, with the interesting parts around the Mediterranean Sea thrown in for good measure (mostly a heaping helping of Rome and Egypt). Here are the monsters and critters I plan to use: Harpies...

    Author Kage Baker gravely ill; has a month left

    It is with great sadness that I write that Kage Baker, author of many sci-fi and fantasy novels, is terminally ill with aggressive cancer. Despite a long and stubborn fight, she seems to have come to the end of her road. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kage_Baker Kage is an intensely private...

    [Venting] I hate it when the publisher lies to me and rips me off.

    *sigh* So I worked for this guy, writing some gaming stuff for his company. I did my job, finished early, was praised for my efforts. Bully for me. Then, time goes by. This guy is publishing out of his home, so I don't say anything because I don't want to bug him. I'm very aware of the...

    [Fantasy] Gonna run my "monster tribe" game again...

    Every once in a while I get an itch to run a game from the monster's point of view. It seems that itch has returned. The last game I did was using D&D, but I don't want to limit this new game to that barrel of fish, so I'm posting here as opposed to the D&D forum. Anyhoo, the premise of the...

    Fantasy economies and magic wood

    No, not that sort of wood. (Henh heh heh henh henh heh... Magic wood... Henh heh henh heh henh heh...) I'm worldbuilding, and I have a garden variety Renaissance-era tech-level fantasy society that sits directly next to a magic-imbued forest, and it got my mind working on the economic and...

    Warhammer Cthulhu?

    I was poking through my game shelf when a thought hit me: What if one took Warhammer (be it Fantasy Roleplay or whatever) and substituted the Cthulhu Mythos in all it's squishy glory for the current Chaos Gods? Might be a bit of a stretch, but let's run with it for fun. Let's see...We've got...
