    Things you hate that players do in RPGs (pet peeves)

    Personally for me, I hate the following. 1. People who clown around too much, especially in serious situations. 2. People asking me what’s my class and abilities in game. ( learn what I am and what I do in game....that is, if I so choose to show or tell you, either way, let’s role play it out )...

    Why are dwarves always portrayed with a Scottish accent?

    Okay, I'm sure there are a few places where fantasy RPG dwarves don't come off sounding like they should be trying to modify the Enterprise's warp cores to facilitate a couple of time travelling whales or something, but what exactly is it about the dwarf character that everyone thinks a Scottish...

    Dwarves! Help me out here....

    Ok, so I am making my own fantasy game setting and I have dwarves in it. The game period is roughly the year 1100AD. Not quite renaissance, not quite Rome... but perhaps with bits of each era mixed in for good measure... mostly they live in independent city lordships, every one of which...

    Games about dwarves

    Are there some fantasy games/settings that revolves around dwarves and their societies? Not D&D with only dwarven PCs, games fully devoted to dwarves. I know of Iron Edda, but that's pretty much it... I love dwarves. Thanks

Shoreless Skies has released a setting expansion for Quill, the letter-writing game, called Coal & Parchment. This little document expands the fun of writing letters in Quill to the setting of The...

    I am a Dwarf and I'm digging a hole (or why do dwarves live underground?)

    This is just a bit of an idea that popped in to my head when I was watching this little cartoon: http://youtu.be/ytWz0qVvBZ0 Lyrics here: http://yogscast.wikia.com/wiki/Diggy_Diggy_Hole_%28Song%29 A few thing that got me thinking, this is an ancient dwarvish war song. Ages ago dwarves lived...

    I need a list of books in which the protagonist is a Dwarf

    I've been reading a book series by Markus Heitz which has 4 books in it (The Dwarfs, War of the Dwarfs, Revenge of the Dwarfs, and Fate of the Dwarfs). The first book was amazing, Heitz created an entire dwarven culture which is divided into 5 official kingdoms and each had it's own customs...

    Awesome dwarves! Who has 'em?

    Which RPGs, whether by fluff or system, have the most interesting dwarves?

    [Random Creativity]Minor Dwarven (and others) Magical Goods

    I'm running a 13th Age game and I have decided that my Dwarves make amazing and cool stuff that my townspeople and players will have a chance to buy if they wish. I went looking for a list of ideas, some inspiration and I could not find anything. So, I've decided to make my own, share it with...

    Whence D&D-style Dwarves?

    Just (finally) got around to watching the first installment in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy. It got me thinking about Dwarves. I go back and forth on these guys. When I'm world-building for a campaign or some fictional enterprise of my own, I am very strict about allowing non-humans in...

    I've seen The Hobbit.

    Well, they just escaped from the goblin town. Pretty much what I expected. I'm actually surprised that I didn't dislike it more. Some good bits. The Gollum sequence. Radagast exploring Dol Guldur. Bilbo himself was excellent. Lots of bad bits. The Necromancer himself was a boring bit of CGI...

    A difficulty with dwarves

    and orcs and elfs and... When you need a species to fulfill a role such as: - Back-to-nature noble savage (like the blue tree-huggers from Avatar, LotR's elves, Asari in Mass Effect) - Generic bad guy with no redeeming features - the marines from avatar, the orcs from LoTR, Batarians or...

    [The Hobbit++] Saw The Hobbit, Loved It

    Saw The Hobbit tonight, loved it. Fantastic movie. My only irritation for the evening was that I saw it sans IMAX or 3D or 48fps, but that may have worked out for the best. I have a feeling it'll take me some time to get used to 48fps, and I didn't want to ruin the composition of this new...

    Dwarves: WHen did they become technologists?

    So, lately I've been on a steady diet of Icelandic Sagas, Norse and Celtic Myths, Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. And one thing I've been thinking about is how in the RPG hobby, dwarves are always presented as these little mini-vikings, all stocked up with machinery of various sorts. On the simplest...

    In the BECMI era, TSR put out a couple of official Dungeons & Dragons solo adventures - packaged in a slipcase like a module, but with a gamebook-style "Choose Your Own Adventure + combat" interior. I've got three of them. The first two, "BSOLO - The Ghost of Lion Castle" and "XS2 - Lathan's...
