    I bought the SNES Final Fantasy games on Steam

    They were on sale for 50%, so I got 4, 5, and 6, as well as The After Years. So far I'm just an hour into 4 and I don't think I entirely approve of this remake. The characters all have huge heads and tiny bodies, and sometimes there's voice acting, but most of the time there's not. And Rosa is...

    [Exalted] Tweaking Ex3's Combat System

    I really like the way combat works in Exalted 3rd edition, but it sometimes seems optimized for 1v1 duels, rather than the group action/adventure setpiece it could be. I've come up with some ideas I think might change it for the better, though I must concede that at this point they're pretty...

    🎨 Creative [Exalted] - The Dreaming Sea: Adopt a Hex

    This is just something I spent the morning tinkering with: I put the Dreaming Sea on a hex grid, on the off chance that I'd run a hexcrawl on it someday. I also labeled the axes for ease of reference. Numbers along the bottom, and letters going up the side. For the even-numbered columns, the...

    🎨 Creative [Setting Idea] The Penultimate World (long)

    The histories of the fourth and subsequent worlds would take too long to recount, and you would quickly notice a pattern. The Powers of Light would build themselves a new paradise only to lose it to the ravenous Powers of Dark. Growing more and more solicitous to their ever-diminishing numbers...

    Screw it, I'm going to read my whole collection!

    A while back I wrapped up the video game blog I'd maintained for four years. I was a bit at a loss for what to do next and wound up puttering around on various projects that never really took off. I guess it was always pretty obvious that my destiny was to start a new blog about a new subject...

    IC [Amber Diceless] - There's only one Earth?

    No matter where you went, you couldn't escape the news. It intruded even into casual entertainment. It was all people could talk about on the gaming forums, the comedy podcasts, the comment galleries on pornographic websites. Chatter was everywhere, but answers were few, perspective practically...

    OOC [Amber Diceless] - There's only one Earth?

    Okay, to recap our starting situation - it's the early 22nd Century. Mankind's mismanagement has pushed Shadow Earth to the brink of destruction. For whatever cheesy, sentimental reason, you've all decided that you're going to try and save it instead of moving on to a nearby Shadow without quite...

    [Interest] Amber Diceless RPG

    I bought this book many years ago, but haven't gotten much use out of it. It's a pretty rough interpretation of diceless roleplaying, but it does look like it would work really well for a PbP game. I was wondering if anyone was interested. You don't need to have the book to join the game, the...

    What Should I Do With My Massive RPG Collection?

    This isn't a thread about downsizing or storage or any physical business like that. I love my rpg collection as it is. It's the heart of my home. The place I go when I'm feeling disconnected and rootless. Its looming presence reminds me that I've settled down, and am surrounded by the things I...

    What should I play for the last game on my blog?

    For those of you who are wandering in via happenstance, let me get you up to speed - I have a long-running blog, the premise of which is that I play every game in my Steam library for 20 hours. June 21st, 2018 is the fourth anniversary of when I started, and that's what I chose as my goal...

    . . . A Zorro movie from the perspective of the villains?

    I saw this trailer the other day, and that was literally all I could think about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMzIJjBAajA Like, the message of the movie appears to be that royalty is good? That the mysterious figure in black who's calling card is a carved "Z" is a threat to the kingdom...

    Hulu's "Future Man"

    I just saw the pilot. The show is basically the same thing as "The Last Starfighter" (a fact lampshaded by the main character) - a video game turns out to be a recruitment and training tool from the future and the people who sent it back in time draft the main character to save the world on the...

    IC [Exalted] Solars of the Blessed Isle

    The Blessed Isle is an ancient land. Everything, from the farmers in their fields, to the roadside shrines, to the cyclopean ruins has a sense of timelessness, as if they were set in place long ago and persist in a carefully curated state of perfection. Except the timelessness has always been an...

    OOC Solars of the Blessed Isle

    The structure of this game is going to be a little different than usual. The basic premise is that your characters are pen pals. (Or an underground resistance network that communicates through letters, whatever). Ten months of the year, you're on your own, having your own adventures. But...

    Heads Up: Rifftrax is giving away $10 in store credit

    I don't know if you have to have already been signed up for their newsletter, but I got an email about it earlier today. It might be worth it to register an account with them, just in case it's retroactive, and if you already have one, you should definitely check your email. It really is...

    There's a new OK-Go video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvW61K2s0tA I think it might be their most ambitious yet. I understand that it took seven cameras to film, but it's all so seamless that an uninitiated dweeb like me can't tell. I just admire the hell out of these guys. Every time I see one of their videos, I'm...

    [The Sims 4] New Gender Customization Patch

    Basically, as far as I can tell (the patch is still downloading for me), this newest version of the Sims will allow you to use any hairstyle, outfit, or voice on any sim https://www.thesims.com/news/new-cas-update This strikes me as unalloyed good news. I mean, it's a small thing, but I...

    [The Art of the Storyteller] - Help me make it great.

    (Carried over from this thread) Here's the pitch - I'm unreasonably fond of old-fashioned storytelling, but I'm not good at it. So I create a pretentious cable-access style show where I tell stories, but the stories quickly go off the rails and start rambling into things like the details of...

    Should I request a thread rename or start a new thread?

    I'm dabbling with the idea of creating a new you-tube series and I was having trouble coming up with a title, so I started a thread asking for help https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?782622-I-need-a-title-for-my-new-Youtube-series The thread didn't attract any replies, which kind of...

    I need a title for my new Youtube series

    There's a thing I like to do, where I have a fleeting idea that's really not anything in particular, but I decide to make a story out of it, barrelling ahead despite the fact that there's not really enough of an idea to base a story on and fleshing out peripheral details that are of no interest...
