    [WIR][Probably NSFWsh] Monster Musume - The Manga

    So, as I've probably made clear in the threads about it (And the Attractive Non-Humans' thread, I rather enjoyed the Monster Musume anime, and not just for the copious amounts of boobage and buttage in it. The setting is interesting, details aren't ignored, and the characters are actually...

    [Let's Read] Maximum XCrawl for Pathfinder (with personalized setting notes)

    Hey folks. I've recently begun organizing an online game of Maximum XCrawl for me and some friends of mine, and I felt like doing a Let's Read of what is one of my favorite 3.5 (and now Pathfinder) settings. But this won't just be a read-through, as I've decided to basically customized the...

    [Where I Read] Chill 3rd Edition - as a Chill virgin

    Here's the context... I've been gaming since 1981, and I've been aware of Chill since seeing the very memorable Mayfair Games cover in game shops in the '90s. However, I've never played it and I don't know anyone who's ever played it. While my group play lots of different games, we're big Call...

    [WIR] Andre Norton's sci-fi novels

    Soooo, time to try something ambitious. I may well not be able to pull this off, but if I'm going to fail at something, I figure it's best to fail spectacularly. This WIR thread will see if I can read through, and comment on, about 50+ sci-fi novels written by the late Andre Norton. The books...

    [spoilers] Where I Read: Transmetropolitan.

    So a little preamble, this will be my first WIR, and I am not confidant of my mastery of the forms. I do encourage people to weigh in and chat, I hate posting back to back so that will help. It will also be for quite obvious reasons, all kind of spoiler filled. So why start here? why this...

    [Where I Read] The Star Wars Expanded Universe - Legends Continuity

    The old Star Wars Expanded Universe wrapped up, now that I think about it, several years ago - being set aside in favor of a new EU which would tie more closely to the new Star Wars films. The Old EU got a lot of crap - some justified (Jedi Academy Trilogy), some maybe less so. Thus, I've...

    Recommend me some fantasy spy fiction

    I love the Laundry but also love stuff which includes military sci-fi and more glamourous stuff. Anyone know any sci-fi or fantasy spy fiction? Novels preferrably but can be movies or comics too.

    Where I Read (And Mine For Worldbuilding): Mordant's Need

    Lately I've been toying with running a low fantasy game with GURPS 3E (technically I'm already running one, but I'd like to try one where the characters are actually, well... humanoid. :o ). I have also been toying for years with the idea of doing something with the setting from Stephen R...

    [Where I read] The Wheel of Time part II or, "this may take longer than I thought." (starting w/ Lord of Chaos)

    + This is a sequel thread to the original: http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?746740-Where-I-Read-The-Wheel-of-Time-or-quot-anyone-up-for-me-committing-the-next-year-of-my-life-quot + I've decided to start a new thread for this so newcomers can decide if they want to hop on and also so it...

    Returned Maztica

    So the big news this week was that Wizards of the Coast now allows others to publish and sell Forgotten Realms material at the Dungeon Masters Guild. This is motivating me to revisit some Forgotten Realms ideas I've had some time ago, and maybe work them out in detail, polish them, and publish...

    Where we read older comics

    Let's talk about the older comics we're reading. Since there have been so many reboots and titles with similar names over time, mentioning the year and the publisher (if not Marvel/DC) in addition to your general impressions is probably a good idea. And please try to avoid spoiling any...

    [Let's Read] Legend of the Five Rings 4e: The Great Clans

    So with the 4e line finished with the recent release of the atlas, and the future of the RPG completely up in the air after the IP's sale to FFG (and, by extension, Asmodée), I figured I'd come back to doing these Let's Reads. The Great Clans is the third supplement in the line, after Enemies of...

    [WIR] Conan

    Background (this got a bit long and is really nostalgic about growing up in the 1980s in Germany) The first time I became aware of Conan was a poster of the movie Conan the Destroyer (locally known as Conan der Zerstörer, of course) in my eldest cousin’s room. This must have been around 1985...

    [WIR] [WiR] Dresden Files XV: Skin Games

    It that time again. The following of these threads has at time been anemic, but people have expressed interest and here we are. Honestly I did start reading the book probably over a moth and half ago, then dropped it, becaue I wanted to do this thread, adn knew I would handle doing both this...

    [WIR] Fragged Empire

    Fragged Empire is a science fiction RPG by Wade Dyer. A Kickstarter project and recently completed, this was perhaps the smoothest Kickstarter I've ever been a part of. Launching June last year, the project hit every stretch goal and – just over a year later – backers have the (chunky)...

    [WIR] The Belgariad, The Malloreon, and the Prequels

    In my second year of junior school, our class teacher read us 'The Hobbit' aloud, a few pages a week, but only got as far the Eagles arriving before he ran out of time. Naturally, I went to the local library to find out how the cliff hanger was resolved, read all of 'Lord of the Rings', then...

    [WIR] The Pathfinder comic

    So. On the Movies you find reprehensible thread, a lot of people were calling for me to do a WIW of Sleepy Hollow, and after watching a few episodes of it... yeah that isn't happening. Sorry, but it just doesn't grab my interest enough to bother. In any case, another piece of media I have...

    [WIR] All the Hugo Award Winning Best Novels

    One of the things that dawned on me with this whole Puppies fiasco is that generally speaking, the Hugo Awards have done a really solid job of recognizing the best science fiction over the past 60 years. "Hugo Award Winner" on the cover of a book meant that it was worth reading. Looking at the...

    [Where I Read] The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski

    Hey folks, I'm a huge fan of The Witcher series but I'm irritatingly one of the ones who is only familiar with the video games, so I'm not a fan of the literary Witcher series. Primarily, because I haven't read them. This strikes me as very much being a "No True Scotsman" sort of Geek cred...

    [WIR] The 2015 Hugo nominees

    So, the Hugos voting packet is out. Come with me as I read it all. As you might know, the 2015 Hugo nominations have been marbled through with scandal. (Two previous threads: The 2015 Hugo nominees, and Who the heck is Vox Day?). I'll summarise, but if you're well-acquainted then why not skip...
