NASA and the US Geological Survey have prepared your new campaign map
Hello, Moon. Everything blue is underwater. Craters replace mountain ranges and valleys. Nearly all islands are rings around massive, circular lakes. The gray areas represent the highest elevations, and in that area on the eft of the map you could have hund...

Dice: How's It Going?
How’s the harvest? Disastrously bad: Withered crops produced only cursed locusts and dysentery. Bad: Poor yields mean hard times for the coming year. Bad with some good: Too much rain flooded the fields, but the fishing industry is having a boom. Good with ...

The Kid's Kid Game: Creatures & Classrooms
The Kid woke me up this morning with an idea for his own version of D&D: Creatures and Classrooms. Monster-Teachers try to bore you (costing you Fun Points), and the students try to wear down their teachers with pranks until they retire.

Follow up: The kid took his rules into school, and has started up a game during "Centers" time. Three days in, and it sounds like things are going well—the players have discovered that the Teachers are aliens with a vulnerability to water, and have armed themselves with water guns. "I think I'll take them to Mars, today," he said at breakfast.

The Kid's Game: Chargen 1
I've been noodling with a ruleset for playing with my kid. He wants to play D&D , so it's basically Holmes on training wheels, customized towards my kid's particular proclivities. Here's a table for determining your character concept: A few notes: 1. The re...

Ashbot on io9! Ashbot on io9!
The Long Slow Flight of the Ashbot may span just four minutes, but its monologue takes place over millions of years. A robot, floating about in space, contemplates its place in the universe, but only when it receives enough starlight energy to think.

Ashbot Reviewed!
The Long Slow Flight of the Ashbot is a fantastic short film directed by Colin West McDonald as well as the final film in The Robot Scriptures trilogy.

Thinking about Attributes
I'd love to know more about how the attributes in D&D originated.  Rolling dice for STR-DEX-INT-WIS-CON-CHR is the most emblematic and formative act in D&D. Maybe you've fought a melee or cast a spell or conversed with a dragon, but everyone who has ever sa...

I like that a set has aspects and monsters and players have conditions rather than hp
