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.

It should make you proud to know that mentioning your name or Zak's name on RPG.net is enough to make moderators give warnings. What are they afraid of? Well, we know honest exchange and debate is not allowed there. And yes, there are a ton of straight white male bullies competing to prove who is the most gay/tranny/"ethnic minority" friendly by abusing others. It's a very strange situation.
Today, something that's pretty well a Must-Read in terms of the recent and ongoing conflict this month around the fact that the Outrage Brigade has tried to slur, slander, and generally lie their way into trying to convince W...

Based on this and a couple of reviews, I have bought this game. Too awesome. Can't wait for it to arrive.

So is there a Sinbad game for sale? I love Harryhausen Sinbad and would love a good game for it (D&D does not work well).
OK, it's the new year, I haven't updated the Kickstarters for awhile now. So without further ado. Legends of Sinbad Kickstarter could use some more help. It's funded, 10 days remain to hit those stretch goals. $57 to get 20 monsters added to the bestiary, that triples what's in the book to begin ...

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...

Sounds about the usual. Outrage is easier than actually working on something.
I'm really too crazy-busy to write this; I've just gotten a new consulting gig (with a company that will be revealed in due time), and have also been busy exchanging some emails with WoTC (the subject of which may be discusse...
