Never heard of it.

Looks like an Abercrombie & Fitch model, not a spy.
So its not over after all! The excellent BBC spy series [spooks] (known as MI-5 on A&E in the US) continues with a film called Spooks: The Greater Good. "Harry not only survived to the final episode, broadcast in 2011, but...

Or – “Where it all began…” This week Major Spoilers celebrates its first birthday! Woohoo! While Major Spoilers may be one year old this week, my love of comics began way back 1981. We were on a family vacation – you know the kind of vacation where you pack everyone into a camper and travel …

That whole Clan thing ruined BattleTech the same way the Third Imperium ruined Traveller. Awful. 
So last night my old BattleTech boxed set caught my eye and I pulled out the rule book and flipped through it. You won't find a lot of posts here on the ol' Gameblog about BTech, but it is probably my number 2 tabletop game in terms of sheer hours of play logged. My junior high/high school ...

Thanks for the news. But where does one obtain these books? Amazon doesn't list either of them. 
New Book -- ICONS: The Assembled Edition. There's a new / alternate version of ICONS out called ICONS Assembled, still by the incomparable Steve Kenson, that offers a substantial amount of alternative rules or rules adjustments -- but packaged as a single rulebook.

great game. great fun
There's even a short comic inside this sucker. Awesome stuff. Didn't play this game enough, and probably won't ever again. And I'm going to give this to a good friend soon, so this is kinda farewell to this game. Good luck, TMNT RPG. May your new owner use you well.

There no books in the Star Wars universe. No paper either.

In 1946 a new superhero called Atoman appeared. His powers were nuclear-based and he wore yellow and red. Was this the inspiration for Firestorm?

I don't really care about Gary Gygax's opinion on whether my campaign is meaningful. Everything I have read about his own game sounds like a game I would not have enjoyed much. 
This is one of those great moments when Uncle Gary speaks directly to us, the Dear Readers. It is also one of the places where EGG breaks out the dread ALL CAPS. Two more good examples of the latter can be found on page 39, where we find the rule that PC magic-users gain “1 (and ONLY 1) spell” ...

To be fair, BattleTech should thank Lucas for the name change: (1) BattleTech is a cooler name and brings to mind Robotech, which it shares many robots with, and (2) "droid" is short for android and most of the robots in BattleTech are not androids so BattleDroids makes no sense.

When your big idea is for gamers to recreate stories from shitty comics of the '90s and '00s, I assume you wanted to fail. Plus the game was just so badly written and poorly edited and did a lousy job at bringing any kind of comic book feel to the subject matter.
Margaret Weis Productions announced today that they are not continuing the Marvel Heroic RPG, apparently after sales of the Civil War line proved to be unsatisfactory. I, for one, am very sad to hear that. Was I a hardcore Ma...
