I Finally got both time and money so I splurged on Elite Dangerous. I realize this might lead to the purchase of a new joystick. The old one I have was bought in a second-hand store and is fairly lacking.

It looks great, but I am going back to University for a medical degree so no MMO anything for me. I hope you have great fun though.

Just wanted to share my note-setup for Ars Magica lately. Symbol lexicons and notebook (transcribing the spells from the basic book into the notebook one / page as a maximum. ).

I first design up the individual pages in Publisher as I use the spells for my characters or NPCs before. Printing and then scribing it over. This will hopefully eventually become the go-to book for my group as we look for spells. The book itself can take additional pages being added which will help with keeping it alphabetical. Worst case scenario I end up cutting the pages out re-binding them if that doesn't look good. Either way it will be one authentic looking book for the game.

After a lot of trial and even more errors... I have a working wild-die. Next is to set up the character-sheet so pages can be turned on and off depending on what setting you play.

Or even exchanged if you run houserules.

Example spell pages how they might look in Publisher before I print and then try to copy to the book.

I try to change the fonts about to try and get the impression that pages have been written by various people and at different times. I also try to add to this effect by using different pens and inks.  (I have two Schaeffer pens with brown and black ink respectively) and a pilot with a wide range of ink casettes.

I stumbeled over this article and thought it might be a good read for Sci-Fi GMs as well as those wanting some context for warships in general historical settings.
Yup, spaceships again.  Between Star Citizen, the new Halo, the new Star Wars, a couple of key mods for Sins of a Solar Empire that I keep up with and have done some voice work on, and Destiny, my ...

Yes, well written. Then there's the planet killer class, like the death star, and of course the super duper star destroyer class.😉 I like the picture.

I am always on the lookout for the very creepiest little phrasings and lines to be able to insert into casual conversation or the rambling of a madman found in the sewers...

"Hush now, you will be better off like this anyway."

"You don't realize the grandiosity of my visions for your future do you?"

"It comes..."  


Phrases to chill the blood, I need more of them. :) So hit me with your best.

For modern or Cyberpunk games et all it is often hard to keep up the fear of state that would keep PCs and npcs inside the lines of the law.

We all have our perceptions on how far we can go and ‘get away with it’ and depending on the setting this might differ wildly, but one thing is for sure in both these settings computers will be present both as gaping security holes and as great boons both for PCs and organizations of all kinds.

Sometimes the players will be the one under survelliance, sometimes they might be what we jokingly call ‘offensive security experts’ of some kind.

If you want to actually induce paranoia to the game or get the survelliance state driven home hard to the players consider this :
Amnesty International has released a new tool called Detekt, it is in many ways a scary program, not Detekt itself, but the fact that this program might be needed in modern society.

Have a player’s computer indicate surveliance then hand them Amnesty’s list of things to do if you detect survelliance and you have a session right there...

Other good sources is the white hat hacking sites, not for the tutorials on hacking but as a guide to what actually can be done with modern tech and as an extrapolation what might be done with future tech.

Or you just check out Australia's proposed datas retention laws: government is insisting that all carriers keep two years' worth of metadata, but won't yet confirm what that actually is: though we do know it includes all IP addresses, incoming and outbound coms, data traffic sizes, location of communications, etc... No warrant needed to accessed the data. Confusion on which government agencies and who within those agencies may access the data. No. Really. I'm not making this up. This scares me, and I live in a country where deadly poisonous snakes attack us in our offices! (Also not made up.) 
No wonder I'm basing a character in a new game we are developing on the current Prime Minister. :-)
