I made a quick table to help improvising wizards abodes.

House rule of the day: stealthy monsters

These days, I find I ask for less and less perception checks. I decide if something is detectable based on what the characters do. If there's an ambush, I consider if the monsters are good at sneaking, and I let the fiction unfold.

If a player asks the right questions, they might detect the ambush. Look up and see a grey slime about to drop, be quiet and realise the birds are suddenly silent, cast detect magic and spot the invisible stalker. All the same thing to me.

If needed, I roll for the monsters (I make up a stat and do a d20 check). I reckon this goes contrary to the players-roll-for-everything principle in The Black Hack, which some people expect MM to be following. Does it strike you as a contradiction?

You! Yes, you, monolingual beef eaters and other uneducated colonial types! Pile up into this thread to push Ben to finish his translation of +John Grümph's excellent rules lite sword & sorcery game, La Lune et Douze Lotus.

Do a G+ search and use the translation tool if you want to know more. We batracian-adjacent talked quite a bit about it. 
Nice game of +John Grümph ´s The Moon and the Lotus with +Tom McGrenery, +Jaye Foster and +Stuart Chaplin at today's Indie Meetup in Central.

Started in media res with pcs naked and bound. Weird sorcery gone wrong, astral creatures, tentacles and lots of fights. Good fun was had by all (I think). This really is my favourite "pick it off the shelf and run it" game.

This artist has several galleries full of sketches of historically-believable women warriors across a lot of cultures. I think I've found my character for Curse of Strahd.

This looks interesting!
So while working on Dark Leningrad I got sidetracked on this little project :
Gun Dogs - Hivecrawling with shotguns.

The most basic way to describe it is D&D meets Zardoz.

I wanted a game that allowed me to use material from other rpgs I had lying around.

It has a tighter focus than Numenéra
It's less gloomy than Mutant Year Zero
It's (a bit) less gonzo than Gamma World.

Just grab the game and go play !

One of the many highlights from Trolls & Légendes was the art exhibitions. Among all the excellent stuff, this gem I was only vaguely aware of: a "Donjons & Dragons" series of comics from the mid-80s, by Bosse and Darasse. It was published in Tintin magazine, but never collected into a book. I did my best to convince Bosse to do something about that ;)

I made a quick and dirty screen and reference sheets document for this weekend's convention. It's a Word document that I couldn't properly convert in PDF, but in case you have a use for it, here is a link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m5t6amniucuuuhn/MMScreen.docx?dl=0
