A few weeks ago I had a full wekend game, the first since a decade, that reunited almost all of our "original" RPG crew. We not only played but also talked about RPG and it became quickly clear that I am the most avid reader and collector of different games. I wanted to share my favorites of the last few years with them and this is the first post. I like to hear from others on this as well, what are your favorite systems or supplements of the last few years?
Recently I reconnected with a friend I had not seen in a decade. He is an old RPG buddy and we got into talking games. I try to stay informed and am an avid collector of RPGs. He did play some but ...

It is the German hardcover version. It looks really great.

I am always surprised how cheap space exploration actually is and then enraged on how little we actually spend on it.

Technically, it is even cheaper than that. What makes the cost so high is the meaningless no-dust cleaning in a hermetically sealed chamber, piece-by-piece, microchip by microchip, and the overpaid engineering designer. The new space exploration corporations have brought the price for space travel down into the octuple digits because they know that even the dirtiest craft is not going to significantly alter the flight path or endanger the craft any more than giving it a new coat of paint.

Can´t wait! I love Civ and if this is even close to Alpha Centauri in game play this could be fantastic.

Working on porting my Savage Worlds Savage Space over to an OSR Engine. I am struggling a bit because I do not 100% grasp the OGL. My Google fu did not turn up something really useful. Is there a "Dummy guide to the OGL" available somewhere?

Some good points on the hassles of separating the open content (which you can use) from product identity (which you can't)

Auf einen Tag voller #Rollenspiele , #Brettspiele und vielerlei Austauschmöglichkeiten mit Gleichgesinnten darf man sich nun zum Zweiten mal freuen. Wie schon letztes Jahr wieder im Herzen der Limburger Altstadt.

Der Limburger Rollenspieltreff 2015 steht immer noch im Zeichen des bundesweiten Gratis-Rollenspieltags (GRT). Leider liegt der GRT für uns ungünstig,  weshalb wir keine größere Location mehr gefunden haben. Uns hat das Kolpinghaus auch sehr gut gefallen.

Leider findet die Veranstaltung diesmal 3 Wochen nach dem GRT statt.  Dafür aber auch immer noch ohne Eintritt.

Für Getränke ist gesorgt, diesmal gibt es auch Brötchen. Ausreichend Essen findet der Hungrige außerdem bei diversen Pizzerien, Restaurants und Fast-Food-Angeboten ringsum.

Wir haben die Planung auch etwas umgestellt, da den meisten Leuten die Spielrunden zu kurz waren. Mit 4 Stunden Blöcken und einer Stunde Pause zwischen den Blöcken solle ausreichend Zeit zum Spielen und auch Essen sein. Nach letzter Zählung haben wir schon 8 Runden in Planung, details posten wir noch auf unserer Webseite und es werden hoffentlich noch ein paar mehr. Falls jemand von euch etwas Leiten möchte schaut bitte auf  unserer Webseite vorbei und meldet sich am Besten dort im Forum. Oder Kontaktiert jemanden aus der Kellerkindercommunity:

https://plus.google.com/communities/106561956650529618349

Das Kolpinghaus bietet Platz für rund 60 Personen an bis zu dreizehn Tischen. Da sollte für jeden etwas zu finden sein!

Die aktuell geplanten Spiele seht ihr hier:

Great thing that Google does, let us see how quickly we reach the 7,5 million limit.
Help #FightEbola. For every $1 you donate, Google will donate $2 to four nonprofits doing critical humanitarian work in West Africa. Together we can do more. Donate now.

Sorry, German only.

Nebeneinkünfte unserer Abgeordneten. Wer hätte das gedacht?

You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.

And at one point you'd hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him/her that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let him/her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her/his eyes, that those photons created within her/him constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.

And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives.

And you'll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they'll be comforted to know your energy's still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you're just less orderly.

Eigentum ist eine GEILE Sache... Zur Miete hat man so etwas nicht.

Echt sehr sehr schön!!!

Auf einen Tag voller #Rollenspiele, #Brettspiele und vielerlei Austauschmöglichkeiten mit Gleichgesinnten darf man sich am 22. März im Zentrum der Limburger Altstadt freuen. Die neue Bischofsresidenz wirft buchstäblich ihren Schatten auf das altehrwürdige Gebäude inmitten der malerischen Limburger Fachwerk-Innenstadt.

Der Limburger Rollenspieltreff 2014 steht im Zeichen des bundesweiten Gratis-Rollenspieltags (GRT). Da diese gemütliche Limburger Convention aber eine Woche nach dem offiziellen GRT-Termin stattfindet, haben wir im Titel "danach” aufgenommen. Gemäß der Idee des Gratis-Rollenspieltags kann man einen kompletten Nachmittag und Abend an vielen Spielrunden mitmachen, Neuigkeiten erfahren und Ideen austauschen – das alles natürlich bei freiem Eintritt!

Für Getränke ist ebenfalls gesorgt! Ausreichend Essen findet der hungrige Magen bei diversen Pizzerien, Restaurants und Fast-Food-Angeboten ringsum. Und wer noch nicht in Limburg weilte, sollte die Gelegenheit zu einem kleinen Spaziergang durch die malerischen Gassen und auf den hinlänglich bekannten Domberg ergreifen! Kleiner Tipp: Mittelalterfreunde kommen im Mittelalter-Kontor Stupor Mundi (Genusswaren, Tuche & Gewandungen) unweit des Kolpinghauses auf ihre Kosten (samstags geöffnet bis 16 Uhr).

Das Kolpinghaus bietet Platz für rund 60 Personen an bis zu dreizehn Tischen.
