    [Where I Read] My Hero Academia: School Briefs

    So, with Ranubis having finished their WIR of the series, and little under 5 months before we get season 4, I thought we could tide things over with my newest impulse buy: My Hero Academia: School Briefs School Briefs is a light novel spinoff of the main MHA series, of which quick research...

    [WIR] The 2019 Hugo finalists

    Hark! Spring is hitting its straps (not valid in all regions), Britain hasn't quite fallen off a cliff, and the Hugo finalists have been announced. There are two streams of Hugo Awards: the 2019 awards, which honour the best contemporary SFF works in a variety of categories; and the Retro Hugos...

    [LttP][WIR] Exalted: the Lunars (First Edition Book)

    All right, going to finally give the infamous Exalted: the Lunars a first hand look. I'd like to thank the generosity of BrilliantRain in providing a gift card towards its purchase. Going to try and do it in a style that I am totally stealing from somebody else who was looking over some older...

    [WIR] Gamma World, first edition (1978)

    PART ZERO: GENESIS Long before I became a registered user I would read WIR and Let's Read threads with interest. I find such threads fascinating and decided to try my hand at one, partially because I want to work out some things and bounce some things around in my mind before my next campaign...

    [Let's Read] Palladium Fantasy (2nd Edition)

    I've always had a soft spot for Palladium Books. Back in the pre-internet days when Dragon magazine was my main source of gaming information outside my local group I was fascinated just by the (many, many) ads for Palladium product. It all seemed to exciting and so much bigger than D&D or my...

    [WIR] Earthdawn Core Rules (1993)

    I’ve read (and enjoyed) a number of different WIR threads about different games -- some I’m familiar with, others I am not. I decided to contribute to the site by rolling out one of my own, focusing on one of my favorite games ever: Earthdawn. I’m going to start with the original rulebook from...

    (Where I Read) Words of Radiance

    Hail and well met Other Media! I have come to share with you all my journey through Brandon Sanderson's expansive Cosmere, and in this thread I will be reading Words of Radiance, the second book in the Stormlight Archives. I will summarize, highlight, and share my thoughts about each chapter...

    WIR: The D&D Rules Cyclopedia

    I’ve wanted to do a WIR on the D&D Rules Cyclopedia for a while as it’s my favorite edition of the rule set. I’ve always appreciated just how much information they managed to cram into one book; with no other reference work you can run entire campaigns from it, ranging from simple dungeon dives...

    (Where I Read) The Way of Kings.

    Greetings once more Other Media! I've been reading and posting my thoughts on Brandon Sanderson's books set in the Cosmere and I have been enjoying this journey a great deal. Now, at along last, this journey brings me to the first entry of The Stormlight Archive, The Way of Kings. I'm reading...

    [Where I Read] Elantris.

    I've just finished reading The Bands of Mourning and enjoyed it a great deal, along with the rest of the Mistborn series. Being that it will be a while yet before the next Mistborn book is written and released, along with the fact that the bulk of Sanderson's works are part of the "Cosmere"...

    💯 {Staff Pick} (Where I Read) Bushido: Role Playing Adventures in Samurai Japan

    [Where I Read] Star Trek Adventures (sight unseen)

    So, I had some store credit at DriveThruRPG and I decided to splash out on a print copy of Modiphius's Star Trek Adventures. It's not the first Star Trek game I've owned. I have a copy of the old FASA Star Trek RPG, along with the Starship Combat Simulator that went with it. But I never owned...

    [WIR] Where I read and then drone on at length about The Riftwar Cycle, being a story in 30 parts

    Let’s talk about something impressive. Let’s talk about a guy named Raymond E. Feist. Unsurprisingly, the author of our little tale. Incidentally, our little tale is thirty books in the making. Feist singlehandedly knocked out 23 of those books in 30 years (the other seven credit other...

    [WIR] Marvel Comics: From 1961 To Parts Unknown

    hello everyone, as the title implies this is going to be a long term WIR I'll be doing of the main Marvel Comics universe(often known as Earth 616) starting from Fantastic Four #1* to a currently undetermined stopping point(current thoughts are that it'll be sometime in the early 90's, but again...

    [WIreR] E. E. Smith's Lensman series - Comentary, Discussion and a hypothetical modern adaption.

    I've been wanting to do this one for a while, and now I've finally gotten round to it. These are the classic space opera tales of a Galactic war, written in the middle of the 20th century. Expect the phrase 'Starkly Astounding' (or variants) to show up a lot. I originally read Dr. Smith's...

    [WIR] Finishing Homestuck

    making this happen etc etc So, many years ago I was really into this particular infamous webcomic, and then all these pauses happened and other stuff happened and I kinda drifted away. Ever since I heard it finished, I've been meaning to get back into it, and now I guess I finally am. I'm...

    [Let's Read] [Cubicle 7] Doctor Who: Roleplaying Game

    The lack of a 'the' before Roleplaying Game is their choice, not mine. Now, I've been a fan of Who since Ye Olden Days (and, honestly, more of those than the post-movie era), and I found this rather noticeably reduced in price so I thought why not. There also seems to be little about this up on...

    [WIR] Books on German Folklore

    Inspired by this thread, I have decided to do a “Where I Read” on books on German folklore in order to bring this glorious source of weirdness to folks elsewhere. German folklore is best known from the assorted collections of the Brothers Grimm (who lived in Kassel, my previous place of...
