What advice do you have for characters advancement in long-running campaigns? I'm thinking about a potential long-running campaign in my home group which might run 40-60 sessions. I've heard some people say that after 20 or so sessions your characters are getting too powerful and the dice pools are getting overly big. I've no idea if that's true. Based on your experience (or based on your knowledge of the math) is there anything you'd recommend I do to slow down the character advancement or otherwise throttle the 'leveling' so that after 40 sessions the characters still isn't super-overpowered or unwieldy?

A friend of mine is raising money to purchase a braille embossing printer to create gaming materials for the visually impaired community. Check it out and consider supporting this! I will be getting involved and we hope to eventually have Braille versions of some of my RPG products. We appreciate your support!

Yesterdays announcement of a 30th year anniversary reprint of “Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game” has prompted some discussion of which Star Wars RPG edition was the best. I did some polling this last year and have some interesting insights on this topic: http://dicehaven.com/star-wars/polls-results-for-favorite-star-wars-edition/

Does anyone know if there's some errata for the BGP (BRP) somewhere? I found a few issues in the hardcopy book but I'm hoping someone has compiled all the issues / typos somewhere :-)

Some photos from my BRP session on Saturday. We played a Conan one-shot (a sequal to the Tower of the Elephant).
