What are the good game stores in the area (if any)? All the ones I went to when I was first into gaming have disappeared I think. I was at Complete Strategist in King of Prussia a few months back but was not very impressed (though I did find a copy of Vornheim, so it was worth the trip).

(I'm in the northwest-ish suburbs of Philly, but would travel a bit for a trip to a store.)

I really should make an effort to explore the FLGS. I've been to Showcase Comics in Ardmore, and Redcap's Corner in west Philly, but they're so heavily aimed at Warhammer, Warmachine, and Magic, that it seems a bit futile trying to garner interest in anything else.

The other Showcase recently moved to Swarthmore, which is only about 15-20 minutes from me. I've not seen it yet.

If you a) didn't just see a post from me about RPG stuff, and b) care, let me know so I can add you to one of my RPG related circles. I really don't use general public posts on G+.

If you are following me for Comics related stuff, you should follow:

Full, downloadable copy of the original. Big G doesn't like letting you see things that aren't in English, or it would have taken a lot less time :b

Apologies as I'm sure a similar to this question has been asked before... but... there's this 40% off Lulu coupon and I was going to order a whole bunch of Nod issues (more hexcrawls than I will ever need), so I thought I'd look for other recommendations of gaming stuff from Lulu. Preferably fantasy.

But what I'm NOT looking for is: a) more rulebooks (have enough) b) more books of just monsters, c) more books of new spells/classes. I want idea stuff, tables, adventures, wildernesses, etc.

Online play (GMT please)  - 
 
In case anyone is looking for some online play this weekend, there are a few LotFP gams going on. I'm running Forgive Us (for anyone who isn't already spoiled for it).
 
ANTIGENCON! G+ RPG THROWDOWN D.I.Y. FESTIVAL IS HERE!

ANTIGENCON!!!!! PLAYER SIGNUP!!!! Ok it's super simple:

ANTI-PLAYERS: Scroll down through the games listed in the comments below and +1 the sessions you're interested in. This will let the GM know you're down for a game. They'll contact you with details. If there's too many players for the session, it's up to the GM who'll make the cut. 

ANTI-GMs: It's up to you to contact the players who have +1'd your session and organise with them the details of your game. I'll leave it in your capable hands to sort it out.

And that's all there is too it. Be excellent to each other, and have a great weekend gaming! Any hassles just lemme know.

And if you want to run a session or just leave a comment do so down the end of the schedule. 

Bewdy Jez


Also, +Dyson Logos has very kindly offered to give every GM a PDF copy of Dyson's Delves II to say thanks for running. GMs, whether you keep it or pass it on to the MVP for the session is up to you. Just ping Dyson and let him know.

Long shot, but does anyone have a scan of the old Barony game (or Rogue Swords of the Empire from Space Gamer)? It had all these great random generators and somewhere along the line my copies disappeared.

Cool. Thanks, guys. Sometimes I regret all the books I got rid of in the past when I needed money/space.

Anyone know a good basic resource for things like harbor fees and taxes? Characters are likely to sail a ship to a city and it seems like they'd need to pay a harbor fee of some kind and taxes on the goods they've acquired from the former owners of the ship (smugglers). I'm not really sure what would feel appropriate but it seems like a good time to relieve them of some of their treasure and let them know civilization is upon them.

HarnWorld has this level of detail:

Harbormaster: the officer in charge of the port appointed by the Mayor. He is either a retired member of the Pilots' Guild or a political apoointee who hires a master pilot as an assistant. Duties of a harbormaster include supervising port maintenance, providing pilotage services, and collecting martime taxes such as pilotage, wharfage, and vessel registration fees. Harbormasters have several assistants in the larger ports.

Bondmaster: the official responsible for the administration of the city bonding house, and the collection of hawking taxes and import duties. Appointed by the mayor, the bondmaster is usually a member of an important guild and may have assistants. Guards will be provided by the Warden.

Bonding Fees: the mercantyler can delay payment of the hawking tax by placing his goods in bond, thta is storing them in the government bonding house. Goods temporarily brought into a city, but destined to be exported, must be placed in bond. This service incurs payment of a bonding/storage fee, a percentage of decalred value, payable in advance with a minimum one month fee. The average Bonding Fee is 1% per month.

Martime Taxes: Shipowners berthed in a port must pay to the harbormaster, Wharfage that averages 1  d per foot of vessel length per day. Vessels at anchor in port pay roughly 20% of the wharfage rate. The Pilotage fee is typically 24-48d per vessel. A vessel can reduce its wharfage by 50% (not its pilotage) by paying an annual Registry fee.

For those of you taking advantage of the Lulu sale, let me recommend Whitehack. Haven't played it yet, but I'd really like to, and it's got a great clean design.

So who can enlighten me on how the updated Necromancer version of Wilderlands compares to the old Judges Guild books? Is it just a 3rd edition update? Is it expanded? Reworked?

Also does anyone have the pdf version of the Necromancer version? Are the maps decent that way?

+Tom Raymo has it right. Greatly expanded, which doesn't please some, who prefer the bare bones version, but it is absolutely the version I use in play. The PDF is available on DrivethruRPG.com, and the maps are nice. I just prefer the older versions for actual play.

Introduction
By day: I'm a programmer/former-librarian working for a company that makes software for libraries.

By morning/weekend: I make comics. I write about comics. The comics I make are often abstract, conceptual, or just plain boring.

I've recently gotten back into D&D. I'm running a campaign using Lamentations of the Flame Princess with a bunch of friends.

I have way too many books.
