Yes, I am easily excited. There are a lot of gamers who are wary of new things, who stick to their old and well-tread ways, but I am not one of those. I love new games. If I could I’d get a new game every day. Leafing through a new rulebook makes me excited about all the games I could run with it. Sure, most of the time, the book ends up on the shelf unused, but if I got at least some excitement out of it, the purchase was IMHO not wasted. And you can always come back to a game later. [..]

While I am still enjoying a few days off from work (and blogging) I thought it would be nice to wish you all a happy new year. I hope you had pleasant and not too stressful holidays and survived the translation from 2017 to 2018 without any troubles. My wife and I were celebrating with friends and played the brand-new Fallout board game on New Year’s Eve which I might write about in the near future. [..]

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1st Edition was the first roleplaying game I’ve played for an extended period of time, and it’s to this day one of my favorites. Recently there was a Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition RPG Book Bundle at Humble Bundle which included a PDF of the 1st Edition rules, but this was only a limited offer. But since yesterday or so, this classic is available on DrivethruRPG to everyone and hopefully for at least a few years to come. I am really glad that Cubicle 7, which is currently working on a 4th Edition of the classic dark fantasy RPG, has decided to bring this old game to the digital age. [..]

Last weekend I wanted to give Fate another chance. Even though I have given up on Fate several times before, I wasn’t happy with that decision. In theory I love what Fate Core and Fate Accelerated represent. If I just could get into the right mindset, Fate could become one of my go-to games especially because of its endless flexibility. [..]

Wow! I just realized that this collection has over 5000 followers. I never thought it possible that this many people are actually interested in what I have to say about roleplaying games. Thanks, folks!

By the way, if you want to support my efforts, check out my Patreon. Every bit helps.

Back in June I decided to take a break from running roleplaying games. I have been wearing the GM’s mantle for many, many years now, and I just needed to step back from that position for a while. Running games was just not fun for me anymore. It felt more like a job, a burden I had to take. Eventually it was even a source of anxiety. I was never the most self-confident person, but back then I thought that every game I started was doomed to fail anyway. Sometimes I even pondered to stop playing roleplaying games for good. [..]

This morning, when I thought about writing about Shadow of the Demon Lord, I was totally amazed that I haven’t actually mentioned it on the blog at all. Robert Schwalb’s Shadow of the Demon Lord is an amazing dark fantasy game which rested for too long on my shelf basically unread. I bought the hardcover book back in December 2016 but I now finally had the time to give it a closer look. [..]
